Heater 80 g - what temperature? Types of insulation for clothing
When buying outerwear, most buyers carefully study the tag, which is available on it, where besides the name of the heater, its weight is indicated. For example, the label may indicate "isosoft 80 g / m" or "sintepon 80 g / m". This means that when making outerwear, the manufacturer used a heater with such a weight (80 g). On what temperature it is calculated, is described in detail in our article. Here you can read about the types of insulation for clothes, their advantages and disadvantages.
Types of insulation for clothing
All heaters can be divided into two types: natural and synthetic. And between them there is one main difference - their composition. Natural fillers are based on natural raw materials, for example, down, feather, sheep wool. However, they can cause allergies, so not all are suitable.
Artificial heaters are not inferior in terms of temperature and quality characteristics of natural fluff, while they are much easier to take care of and can even be washed in a washing machine. There are the following types of synthetic fillers:
- tinsulate (artificial fluff);
- faybertek and others.
In the production of the last three types of insulation for clothing used hollow and thin elastic fibers. They keep the volume well, do not deform and allow the skin to breathe. Synthetic fillers withstand a lower temperature (up to -25), but they are much cheaper than natural heaters.
Advantages and disadvantages of natural insulators
Despite the large number of synthetic fillers, outer clothing, insulated with fluff and feather, is still in demand. In it, buyers are attracted by the following:
- small specific weight;
- small volume;
- high thermal insulation characteristics;
- ecological compatibility of the material;
- wear resistance, durability.
Meanwhile, the feather insulation has significant drawbacks:
- high probability of allergic reactions;
- an ideal environment for the breeding of dust mites;
- labor intensive care;
- low heat-regulating properties.
This is the last drawback and plays a decisive role in choosing clothes with natural insulation. An active person at a temperature of -15 degrees in a jacket with a filler of fluff will be very hot, whereas synthetics in this case provides a more favorable microclimate inside.
Synthepone for warmth of outerwear
Synthepone is an artificial insulator made on the basis of polyester fibers. It is produced in two ways: glue and hot glue. The difference in the result is obvious.
Adhesive sintepon is a heater in which polyester fibers are laid in layers and well glued together. The main advantage of such a filler is the minimum price. Otherwise, this material has some drawbacks. It is non-ecological, has low air conductivity and poorly retains heat.
The thermoplastic sintepon also consists of polyester fibers, but in such a heater they are not glued, but are connected together by means of special silicone needles. The thermo-adhesive filler is eco-friendly and hypoallergenic, does not deform with time and has good wear resistance. It has a different thickness or density and is designed for a different temperature regime. What are the characteristics of a heater (density 80)? This question needs to be considered in more detail.
Synthephe 80 g: temperature
Synthepone is of different density: from 50 to 600 g / sq. m. where layers of insulation can be several. But regardless of the thickness of the filler, such clothes will still be of little use for a cold winter. Synthepone is a light insulation. Jackets based on it are usually designed for temperatures up to 10 degrees below zero. And this despite the fact that in general the density of the synthepone is calculated for such a temperature:
Thus, from 10 degrees above zero and to light frost, you can wear a jacket, on the label of which there is a designation "sintepon 80". What weather is the clothing intended for? Cool spring and warm autumn - this is exactly the time when you need to wear a jacket based on sintepon and not be afraid to freeze or, on the contrary, overheat.
Characteristics of insulation isosoft
Among synthetic fillers, Isosoft has become increasingly popular lately. It is a light and soft material with a fine mesh structure and a thermo-printed surface. Inside, isosoft consists of fibers that resemble small balls in shape. In relation to each other, they are not very tight, they contain cavities, thanks to which clothes on the basis of isosofta perfectly passes air and keeps heat inside. Such a structure does not allow penetration of cold air and guarantees the safety of warm air.
Isosoft filler has a different density. Depending on this, it can be used for tailoring clothes and for a very cold winter, and for a warm spring, for example, as an isosoft insulator of 80 g. The temperature regime for which such a filler is calculated depends on its thickness. Let's consider this issue in more detail.
Isosoft (heater 80 g): at what temperature
The insulation density of isosoft can be from 40 g / square. m up to 300 g / sq. m. m. Clothing with a thin layer of filler is more suitable for spring-autumn warm weather, and with thicker - for a cold winter. To determine when you can wear things on the label of which the "80g heater" is indicated, at which temperature they are calculated, it is recommended to use the following decoding:
- 40-80 g / sq. m. - from +10 to 0;
- 100-150 g / square. m - from 0 to -10;
- 200-300 g / square. from -10 to -25.
The outer clothing with the amount of insulation 80 g can be worn in spring and autumn. Isosoft filler of this density is used for sewing of demi-season and sportswear. Warm winter and cold autumn will be enough insulation layer thickness of 100-150 g / square. For cold winter weather, when the temperature drops to 25 degrees below zero, the amount of filler should be doubled.
What is good isosoft (insulation for clothing): reviews
Manufacturers of clothes based on isosofta define it as a light and thin material that does not accumulate dust and keeps heat well. But potential buyers are more interested in the opinion of real people who are familiar with this material not by hearsay, but have experienced it in real conditions. How did they like isosoft?
Heater for clothes, reviews that are extremely positive, liked the buyers as follows:
- By its functionality it can be compared with a thermos, that is, it keeps the heat inside the clothes well. Even during strong frosts in clothing based on isosofta warm and comfortable.
- It is easy to take care of the material, it does not deform during washing, dries quickly and retains all its unique properties.
- Isosoft - a thin filler, so it does not fetter the movements of the child during walking and active games.
- Heater has better thermoregulating properties. In such clothes it is not cold even at a temperature below 20 degrees and it is not hot during games and running.
How to determine if the child is frozen?
First of all, when buying clothes, you can see that the amount of filler in the jacket and pants can differ almost twice. In addition, usually in the sleeves of the insulation is also quite a bit compared with the body, because they are often in motion and almost do not freeze. It should also be noted that the amount of filler in the outer clothing is distributed equally, although the adult is a kit, even a child.
Determine how warm the heater 80 g, at what temperature it is calculated, any mom can independently. And to make sure that her child is not frozen, you need to touch his hands, nose, cheeks and back. They should be room temperature. Too hot parts of the body may indicate overheating. By the way, the problem of hypothermia is easily solved with the help of thermal underwear.
