Textile Testing & Innovation, LLC. provides testing services especially related to products equipped with phase change material (PCM) and shape memory material (SMM). In order to test and evaluate the thermal performance and the moisture management of products equipped with PCM and SMM, specialized testing procedures have been developed and already implemented in several thousand test runs. Our tests are both quick and highly reliable.
Kinds of testing we offer:
1. Fabrics, polymer films, and textile composites with and without PCM/SMM.
2. End-use products with and without PCMs/SMMs.
We also conduct wearing trials in a climatic chamber with human test subjects.
Additionally, the company possesses test equipment for the comprehensive testing of:
Textile Testing & Innovation, LLC. assists customers, especially end-use product manufacturers, in their efforts to incorporate the PCM technology and SMM technology into their product lines. In order to select appropriate PCMs, to determine their necessary quantities, and to customize the product design, we have created a sophisticated computer-aided calculation and simulation procedure. The product development of PCM-equipped products is further supported by our tailor-made testing protocols and our data base containing the characteristics of about 100 different PCMs.
