Thermal insulation can broadly be defined as the process of insulation against transmission of heat. In the context of thermal insulation for outerwear, there are two types – down insulation, which is made from goose or duck plumage; and synthetic insulation, or polyfill as its often referred, is comprised of polyester fibers.
Synthetic fibers are versatile options for outerwear insulation. Synthetic thermal insulation is much more resistant to moisture compared to animal-derived products, and in some cases can outperform natural fibers such as cotton, which is slow to dry after getting wet. It’s essential to consider synthetic insulation for thermal insulation for outerwear. Thermore’s thermal insulation is available in all parts of the globe in a variety of weights to suit your needs.
Polyfill for outerwear has historically been an effective insulator, partly because of the fibers themselves, plus the fibers ability to trap air (up to 97% of its volume). Technical polyester fibers will produce a soft hand feel and durable garment. This makes our product the perfect choice to be utilized as thermal insulation for cold weather gear and padding for apparel.
Choosing the right thermal insulation that’s constructed in a way that best suits your activity and environment is akin to choosing the right tool for the job. With almost 50 years of experience, Thermore has solidified its place as an industry leader in thermal insulation for outerwear and has the right tool for the job.
