Thanks to the collaboration with specialist partners and research institutions, our R&D department offers collaboration on customer projects starting from feasibility, creating the related prototypes with cost and production e valuation if required.
We create sketches for new and innovative products on customer's request, we prepare the pattern for the realization of the prototype, we support the customer in choosing the most suitable materials and accessories and finally we realize the zero head for the production.
We managed to catch the air and make it technically stable creating a kind of buffer between our skin and the outside.
LTX can be defined as a tool to position and retain the air of a fabric , the air is in fact the best insulating material existing in nature and the lightest in absolute.
LTX allows then to a tissue to be thermally insulated with one of the highest values of thermal resistance without increasing the weight perceptually ; LTX also carries out a windproof, waterproof and breathable is , if you micro properly and, where appropriate , when used in the appropriate quantities, allows objects to which it is laminated from sinking .
It ' important to note that all the membranes used in the textile trade , even the most named and publicized , they offer very little or no thermal resistance .
LTX instead prince is in this function thanks precisely retaining air in the characteristics microcells , so a light fabric coupled to a thermal LTX can exercise greater than or equal to heavy heads of protein or synthetic fiber resulting garments are lighter, more comfortable and more efficient.
Today LTX allows the creation of garments for extreme use , extremely warm , waterproof and lightweight , of course, the user can move around more easily , more comfortable without wasting energy for less weight to carry.
LTX to 0.5 mm thick, has an average value of thermal resistance equal to 0.055 m2K/W-RCT that corresponds in conversion to 0,355 CLO ( 1 CLO = 0.155 RCT- m2K / W) .
It is therefore clear that LTX , to a thickness of 0.5 mm , has a thermal resistance of at heavy clothing such as a jacket, a pair of pajamas with long sleeves, a flannel shirt and so on. , Also the action of insulation and insulating LTX increases in exponentially when the temperature drops until you get to the thermal conditions of - 25 °.
The thermal resistance of a material fact follows directly from the combination of transfer of radiant heat, conductive and convective , and its value depends on the contribution of each to the total heat transfer .
In order to understand the high value of LTX in terms of thermal resistance , simply compare it to other materials that are advertised just for this property .
For example you can make a comparison with the 3M Thinsulate Art C/40 which has a thickness of 4 mm having RCT = 0.12 equal to the value CLO 0,775 .
Since the heat loss is conditioned by the thickness of the insulation and as the CLO are added together , adding the values of the individual components of the CLO approximates the total system :

Accordingly to obtain the same thermal resistance of C/40 are needed only 3 layers of LTX for a total thickness of 1.5 mm compared to 4 mm of Thinsulate/C40.
Furthermore , given that LTX is a cushion of air and this being the best thermal insulation , is able to insulate the body while maintaining the temperature constant , protecting it from harsh temperatures and excess external heat , is the only product that has as feature only when necessary to keep warm .
