The result of studies conducted by the laboratories of Bologna and dallUniversit Pelma, Thermofresh the innovative polyurethane foam with injection of microcapsules capable of absorbing heat from the human body. Its revolutionary capacity given by the PCM, microcapsules capable of absorbing heat, which are able to lower the surface temperature of the body in a range between 2 and 4 degrees centigrade. The polyurethane Thermofresh is also distinguished by its characteristic toilet through the special treatment Ultrafresh that, unlike other products on the market bacteriostatic, exploits the natural ability dellargento to resist the growth of bacteria, one of the primary causes of asthma and allergic diseases , and mold, the main cause of bad odor and degradation.
