C_CHANGE

ADAPTABLE WINDPROOF AND WATERPROOF MEMBRANES

Pine cones open when the outside temperature rises, and close again when the temperature drops. Inspired by nature, the c_change® membrane works on the same principle. It reacts in exactly the same way to ambient conditions. Not only the temperature but also the air and body moisture are taken into consideration.

When involved in sporting activity, while motor cycling or during outdoor activities, the individual is exposed to varying climatic conditions and levels of physical exertion. c_changeTM, the new membrane technology from schoeller®, reacts to the different temperatures and activities. As soon as greater moisture is produced as a result of a higher prevailing temperature or greater body heat, the membrane structure opens and allows excess heat and water vapour to escape to the outside air. As soon as the body produces less heat energy, and consequently less moisture, the membrane structure contracts again. Body heat is then stored and protection from shivering and chilling built up.

Inspired by nature.

c_change the new membrane technology from schoeller® takes nature as its role model. Or more precisely, the effect which, for example, can be observed in pine cones which open and close in response to different weather conditions.

Reacts to changing temperatures and activities

The c_change membrane reacts to different prevailing conditions. It takes into account not only the temperature but also humidity and body moisture.

Ensures a pleasant body climate

Due to the high level of breathability, combined with heat retention adapted to the particular situation, c_change ensures a consistently ideal body climate.

Wind and water proof

The c_change membrane is permanently wind and waterproof, ensuring protection no matter what the weather.

Offers a high level of breathability

The water vapour permeability of c_change adapts perfectly to the prevailing conditions.

c_change – further arguments that speak for themselves:

• The c_change membrane can be processed into membrane solutions ranging from non-elastic to highly-elastic.

• Tested in practice under extreme conditions.
• The c_change membrane conforms to the bluesign® standard*.

Open at higher temperatures or high levels of activity:

At high temperatures or during sporting activity, the correspondingly high level of moisture development causes the structure of the c_changeTM membrane to open. Excess heat can escape to the outside
