Textile Trials

Watch as researchers at the Textile Performance and Comfort Center test safety clothing on life-size mannequins with sensors. Researchers and students test fabrics for breathability, fire retardation, and heat resistance in order to ensure the health and safety of first responders, red zone workers, and military units. Fabrics are designed, tested, and optimized for a variety of adverse conditions.
