  • Body Cooling Garment | TechLink
    cooling unit Image Right The Technology A method developed by NSC to adhesively attach tubing to an air permeable and vapor permeable fusible fabric substrate having an adhesive dot pattern on the surface to which the tubing will be attached The adhesive dots are melted through heat and pressure to attach to the tubing forming a single component that is next fused to a second layer of fabric creating a tricomponent construction with the tubing sandwiched in the center to form a laminate garment structure This method eliminates the need for stitching to hold the tubing in place Sewn tubing has the problem of potential pinhole puncturing of the tubing skin irritation from the threads themselves lengthy manufacturing time two days to manufacture and test a T shirt and needleholes that allow unwanted chemicals to penetrate the fabric This technology is also superior to brushed or rolled on adhesives which destroys porosity Variations can be made for a chemical suit Foot cooling is covered in a patent application Five US patents have issued and a sixth patent application has been filed US patent numbers are 6 901 608 6 813 783 6 565 699 5 538 583 5 320 164 Benefits A breathable flexible comfortable cooling garment Proven technology vests being used by the US Army Lower manufacturing costs eliminates stitching Low pressure drop and 180 Watts of cooling power The Opportunity Devlopment Status Small portable cooling units are being developed Connections to faucets being developed USARIEM testing cooling boots Contacts Laurel Halfpap CLP Senior Technology Manager Leader Biomedical Licensing Montana State University TechLink Bozeman Montana lhalfpap montana edu 406 994 2051 Technology Managers and Senior Advisors Read more about Laurel Halfpap CLP Dan Swanson CLP Senior Technology Manager Licensing Leader Montana State University TechLink Bozeman Montana dss montana edu
