Abstract

The goal of PCM textiles is to create reusable energy to maintain body temperature, as well as to optimize the performance of protective wear such as gloves. Maintaining a stable body temperature can improve working conditions and comfort. The study also has practical applications for the inner linings of protective clothing in conditions of high heat or extreme temperature. Laboratory research design was used in this study to explore the application of PCM in design protective hood.
