Visit our practical workshops during the Performance Days in Munich, Germany
28 - 29 November, Booth P9-P10, in Hall C 1

Clothing that fulfils multiple functions at once is really appreciated by consumers. Our Hohenstein experts help you to hone the comfort, function, and fit of your products as well as their efficiency, and we will inform you about the latest knowledge and tricks about textile performance.

In our workshops, you will find out more about pattern and fit issues during product development, how to manage sweat odour when manufacturing sports clothing and outdoor textiles, functional materials and textiles with effective cooling performance, and much more!

The participation is free of charge.
Register quickly! There are only 25 participant spots for each workshop

28.11.2018 I 10.00 Uhr - Comfort, touch and feel

Speaker: Dr. Jan Beringer, Hohenstein

Comfort, touch and feel

Learn about thermal comfort, moisture management, human thermoregulation and how the pro-cesses of interaction with the environment and the apparel work. These processes are given by the laws of nature i.e. physics and work and apply for all human beings the same all over the world. The existing physical testing methods and their application in different wearing scenarios are explained and guidance is given what these results actually mean and how they correlate with the human perception and impact on thermoregulation.

28.11.2018 I 10.45 Uhr - Cooling and Warming

Speaker: Dr. Jan Beringer, Hohenstein

Cooling and Warming

This session is the sequel of “Comfort, touch and feel” and focuses solely on the evaporative heat loss i.e. “cooling”. The physical testing method (WATson) is explained and guidance is given what these results actually mean for the human perception and impact on thermoregulation.

28.11.2018 I 11.30 Uhr - Sweat and odour management

Speaker: Dr. Timo Hammer, Hohenstein

Sweat and odour management

Unpleasant body odor comes from the bacteria of natural skin flora, which break down the different components of sweat and as a result release odorous byproducts. Whether and how strongly we per-ceive this bad odor depends on the amount of odor molecules that reach our nose. Yet how can textile manufacturers make their products fit for the fight against sweat odor? Which technologies really achieve effective odor management? In order analyze existing substances for sweat odor removal or to develop powerful new products, reliable detection methods for sweat odor have to be used.

28.11.2018 I 12.15 Uhr - Textiles and the skin

Speaker: Anne Schopfer, Hohenstein

Textiles and the skin

Textiles that come into direct contact with the skin not only strongly influence the feeling of wear but can also have an effect on the skin itself. Besides safety issues such as chemical and mechani-cal irritation, potential positive effects on the skin e.g. by transfer of substances, and the skin’s microflora will be discussed.

28.11.2018 I 13.00 Uhr - Fit & Pattern – the Hohenstein Approach

Speakers:Stephanie Brenner / Anke Klepser / Beate Urban, Hohenstein

Fit & Pattern – the Hohenstein Approach

To reduce the return rates of garments is one of the most important goals in retail. The knowledge about the target group in regard of body size and shape is the basis to overcome this challenge. Learn how 3D scanning technology helps you to define your customer group. And fitting tests with real test persons lead to brand identity across all sizes and size consistency.

28.11.2018 I 13.45 Uhr - Compression of functional sportswear

Speaker: Florian Girmond, Hohenstein

Compression of functional sportswear

Learn more about compression measurement method and new device HOSYcan.

This session shows how the compression of sportswear and other pressure exerting garments is measured today. It presents the state-of-the-art compression testing method(s) with the new HOSYcan measurement device, how Hohenstein verifies the compression of sportswear in static state and during simulated motion.

28.11.2018 I 14.30 Uhr - Dana Luley, Hohenstein

Speaker: Dana Luley, Hohenstein

Textile UV-Protection

This unit explains the background of the necessity of UV protection. In this frame, the conjunc-tion to the new regulation of Personal Protective Equipment is described. Different solution op-tions are presented to solve the requirements of regulation and, finally, of consumer.

28.11.2018 I 15.15 Uhr - What does biodegradation mean?

Speaker: Christin Glöckner, Hohenstein

What does biodegradation mean?

Reducing the impact of textile products on the environment is becoming increasingly important for the textile industry. The main interest is focussed on biodegradable products and fibres from sustainable sources. The biodegradation of textiles based on soil burial tests provides important information on the decay properties of a product along with the ecotoxicological risks and it can be used for evaluation a product´s ecological functionality.

28.11.2018 I 16.00 Uhr - Confidence in textiles worldwide

Speaker: Michaela Cejkova-Kreusch, Hohenstein

Confidence in textiles worldwide

Consumers wants more and more Transparency, Sustainability and Reliability not only in food or wood industry but also in textile products.

The MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX®-concept shows how to show sustainable production with social and environmental responsibility, transparency in the supply chain and reliability at the point of sales on your product.
