Identifying the potential for improvement
The following example shows how the expertise of the Hohenstein Institute can help you to improve the skin sensory and thermophysiological properties of textiles. Textile with a low surface finish index of 2.3. The textile feels too smooth on the skin and therefore uncomfortable.
After brushing, the textile has a much better surface finish index of 5.3. With a slightly rougher surface, the textile feels fleecier on the skin, creating a pleasant wearing sensation.
