A fabric capable of cooling itself autonomously?

Firefighters and athletes, among others, can take advantage of its benefits.

At E.Cima we have done it again. Our commitment to technology has led to a new achievement for the textile sector. On this occasion, we have created a technical fabric that allows the temperature to be cooled automatically and actively without having to connect to the electrical current. It is a flexible thermoelectric device that can be integrated into any textile-type material.

Temperature sensors to guarantee good distribution of cold.

It can be of great help in cases such as the clothing of firefighters, athletes, industrial workers or hospital equipment. The innovative system incorporates a series of temperature sensors, power control and ventilation elements to guarantee good distribution of cold and efficient operation through heat dissipation.



Power and ventilation control


Adaptable to any textile material

To carry out this project we have received help of 73,000 euros from ACCIÓ – the agency for the competitiveness of the company, dependent on the Department of Business and Knowledge of the Generalitat of Catalonia -, within the framework of the R&D Nuclei program International Business. These grants promote R&D business projects between Catalan companies and international partners.

In fact, E.Cima is developing the project in collaboration with the company Intelligent Textile Products (ITP) and the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT) research center, both German, as well as the Catalan technology center Leitat.

Our media appearances

There have been several media outlets that have echoed our invention. That is why, below we present three of the most outstanding news regarding E.Cima’s autonomously refrigerated fabric. Meanwhile… We continue working on new projects!
