• THERMAL RESISTANCE (Rct) IN M².K/W :
Measurement of the thermal insulation provided.
Divided into 4 classes (from 1 to 4) from the least insulating to the most insulating. The higher the value, the greater the thermal insulation.
• WATER VAPOUR RESISTANCE (Ret) IN (M².
Measures the evaporative resistance, i.e. the product’s obstacle to the passage of water vapour, or the barrier it offers to evaporation of transpiration on the surface of the skin. The higher a product’s water vapour resistance, the greater this product’s barrier to the passage of water vapour: A breathing product has a low water vapour resistance. Divided into 3 classes (from 1 to 3) from the least breathable to the most breathable.
• AIR PERMEABILITY (AP) IN mm/s :
Determines the complex’s permeability to air.
Divided into 3 classes (from 1 to 3) from the least airtight to the most airtight.
• RESISTANCE TO WATER PENETRATION (WP) IN PASCAL:
Measurement of the outer material and seams’ resistance to water penetration under a water pressure of (980+/-50) Pa/min.
Divided into 3 levels (1 to 3) from the least impermeable to the most impermeable.
• RESULTANT EFFECTIVE THERMAL INSULATION:
Measured on moving dummy (/cler).
The thermal insulation coefficient, expressed in m2.
K/W, is used to determine the optimum usage temperature of the garment in relation to the individual’s activity and his exposure time.
Thermal insulation is measured with undergarments of type :
– (B) for ensembles (Undershirt with long sleeves, long underpants, socks, bootee + thermojacket, thermopants, knitted gloves, balaclava).
– (R) for garments (Undershirt with long sleeves, long underpants, socks, bootees, jacket, trousers, shirt, knitted gloves, balaclava).
– (C) provided by the manufacturer.
