Thermalution Products are made of the most advanced functional fabric, up-to-date design and ThermalTek® non-metallic Heating Wire Technology that generates heat and warms up the blood. It gives you the warmest clothing you will ever need in any cold situation. Not only is it suitable for all kinds of outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, skiing, hunting, riding etc., it's also available for cold water activities like surfing, diving, swimming and kayaking etc
ThermalTek® and Far Infrared Ray
Thermalution® Heated Undersuits use a revolutionary way to heat your core and keep you warm. It's called a TemalTek® non-metallic Heating Wire; State of the art fiber heating technology that generates heat and warms up the blood in two locations along your back. This durable heating wire is the first of it's kind to be high strength, bendable, twistable, light and washable.
It has high heat transfer efficiency with low power consumption giving you maximum heat with lighter, smaller batteries. TheralTek® also generates Far Infrared Ray which are beneficial to the human body in a number of ways including:
- Heat penetrates deep into your core
- Provides warmth, and relieves joint pain and stiffness
- Accelerates metabolism
- Improves blood circulation
- Stimulates cell growth
More about Far Infrared Ray
Far Infrared ray (FIR) is a spectrum of natural sunlight with a wavelength of 4-1000 microns. It is invisible to the human eyes.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) pointed out that FIR with wavelength between 6-14 microns is capable of penetrating deep into the human body where they gingerly elevate the body temperature and generate resonance. It can accelerate metabolism, improve circulation and provide warmth. Testing of Petatech® International Co., Ltd. products, performed by Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, demonstrates that all of Petatech's products generate the desired FIR with wavelength of between 6-14 microns.
Similar to any base layer clothing (like Under Armor®) Thermalution Undersuits can be worn beneath any wetsuit, dry suit, or jacket. It's most effective to wear directly on your skin.
Wearing beneath a wetsuit
Thermal protection of a wetsuit is limited to insulate your body and minimize heat loss. The thicker the neoprene, the warmer you'll feel, but you may get extremely exhausted by putting a thick wetsuit on. With our Thermalution® Power Heated Undersuit, you can say good-bye to a thick wetsuit and enjoy a fun cold water sport with a thinner wetsuit, because Thermlation generates heat instead of only been able to reduce heat loss. By wearing Thermalution® Power Heated Undersuit beneath your wetsuit it distributes the heat through whole body by the water underneath your wetsuit.
Check out the product page for a short Video showing how the suit works.
Battery and Controller
Thermalution Heated Undersuits use two 7.4 volt Lithium Polymer batteries. Battery Size: 4x2x0.5 Inches.
These are the same type of batteries found in your mobile phone or mp3 player. There is no danger of radiation, electric shock or explosion from these batteries. Batteries are compact and lightweight and are positioned outside of the undersuit at the sides of the chest, under the arms. It offers maximum freedom of movement and it's easy to change batteries.
Thermalution micro controllers are easy to use. To turn on the undersuit push and hold button for 2 sec. On start up it displays a green light and starts temperature on low. Push once more to change to medium temperature with an orange light indication and once more to change to high with a red light indication. To turn the undersuit off simply push and hold button for 2 sec.
