Thinsulate is a state-of-the-art thermal insulation material from 3M brand. It has high thermal insulation properties thanks to which the efficiency of maintaining heat inside a shoe is twice higher than in the use of thermal insulation materials from other manufacturers.

HOW DOES THINSULATE MATERIAL WORK?

The effect has been achieved by using a specialist material in the structure which contains micro-fibers creating microscopic air spaces characterized by perfect thermal insulation properties and which are not subject to pressing during the use. Thinsulate proves effective also in high humidity. It is characterized by good hydrophobic properties - contrary to other materials, it absorbs only a small amount of humidity (up to 1%) without losing its thermal insulation properties.

MATERIAL PROPERTIES

Warm temperature, dryness, lack of perspiration, lightness, durability, water and moisture resistance, thinness and hypo-allergic properties - in short - comfort that every user of outdoor clothing, e.g. shoes, expects. The unique micro-fiber technology developed by 3m allowed to create the entire family of thermal insulation materials which meet the most demanding requirements of users in terms of optimal protection against cold.

DOES A BOOT USER FEEL ANY DISCOMFORT BECAUSE OF THE THERMAL INSULATION MATERIAL?

The unique technology of micro-fibers which are 2-5 mm thick (25 times thinner than the thickness of human hair) guarantees better thermal parameters with lower weight and thickness. This provides a user with freedom of movement as well as maximum of comfort.

MATERIAL DURABILITY

The unique micro-fibers ate 10 times smaller than conventional fibers of other thermal insulation materials, thanks to an increased number of air bags, they ensure not only better thermal parameters, but also constant elasticity despite pressure experienced in use.

Micro-fibers provide 1000 fibers per unit, whereas conventional solutions - 10 fibers. Thanks to that the effective surface is 314,000 mm2 while in conventional solutions only 31 400 mm2.

Whereas other materials lose their thermal properties, Thinsulate maintains them at a stable level during the entire time they are used.

WHAT IS THE WATER RESISTANCE AND BREATHABILITY OF THE MATERIAL?

The material allows to achieve less than 1% of water absorption with respect to own weight. This helps to keep the body warm and dry in unfavorable weather conditions.

The material is breathable which ensures proper heat balance regardless of the conditions of use and thereby, avoiding perspiration. By controlling body heat it gives comfort to the user whether at work or while resting.

ODORLESS AND HYPOALLERGIC

The material is odorless and hypo-allergic, perfect for allergy sufferers. It has the ecological certificate Okotex Standard 100. Quality of the material is guaranteed by ISO-9002 certificate.
