Polar Skin cooling products are a safe and effective way to reduce core body temperature and prevent heat-related illnesses. They work by using a combination of conduction, convection, and evaporation to cool the skin.
Conduction is the process of heat transfer that occurs when two objects of different temperatures come into contact with each other. The heat will flow from the hotter object to the colder object until the two objects reach the same temperature. Polar Skin cooling products use conductive cooling by applying cold materials to the skin. The Polar Skin Ice Sheets and the Polar Skin C.O.R.E. Packs are both made of materials that conduct heat well. When these materials are placed on the skin, they draw heat away from the body, which helps to cool it down.
Convection is the process of heat transfer that occurs when a fluid (such as air or water) moves over a surface. The fluid carries heat away from the surface, which helps to cool it down. Polar Skin cooling products use convective cooling by creating a flow of air over the skin. The Polar Skin Ice Sheets and the Polar Skin C.O.R.E. Packs are both designed to allow air to flow through them. This helps to promote convective cooling and helps to cool the skin down even further.
Evaporation is the process of heat transfer that occurs when a liquid changes to a gas. When a liquid evaporates, it absorbs heat from its surroundings. This is why you feel cooler when you sweat, because the sweat on your skin evaporates and absorbs heat from your body. Polar Skin cooling products use evaporative cooling in a few different ways. The Polar Skin Ice Sheets are made of a material that is highly absorbent. When the sheets are wet, they evaporate quickly, which helps to cool the skin. The Polar Skin Cooling Collar also uses evaporative cooling. The collar contains two gel packs that are saturated with a solution that helps to promote evaporation.
These three types of heat transfer work together to quickly and effectively cool a hyperthermic person. The Polar Skin cooling products are a safe and effective way to reduce core body temperature and prevent heat-related illnesses.
Here are some of the benefits of using Polar Skin cooling products:
They are quick and effective at cooling down a hyperthermic person.
They are safe to use on all skin types.
They are portable and easy to use.
They can be used to prevent heat-related illnesses.
