◎Insulation Principle

  Snow-Tex using special yarn(scrim) by our own technique, which has numerous micro voids on the surface, implement insulation function by diffuse reflection. Differ from specular reflection by aluminized material, Snow-Tex reflects light diffusely with great efficiency.

 

◎Insulation Effect

 Snow-Tex cloth insulates light, heat and UV through highly reflective effect.
