Abstract:

Foundry worker activity involves remaining in a high temperature while working close to a melting furnace. Special clothing made from aluminised fabrics for this action ensures protection against high temperature. However, the problem is that the existing so far suits have not been breathable. This paper the presents the utility comfort parameters of underwear goods which can be used under protective clothing. The special structure of underwear should assure the maintainance of constant temperature of the body. In order to compare the basic functions, namely ensuring comfort of use, innovative underwear products underwent measurements on a thermal manikin. Moreover a comparison between new raw material solutions of underwear and traditional cotton underwear was made. Additionally the air and water vapour permeability of knitted fabrics were measured. The aim of the study was also to determine such properties as the thermal insulation, air and water vapour permeability of underwear products that influence the physiological comfort of foundry workers in order to choose the best one for foundry worker activity.
