The main objective of this project is to develop different garments to protect the user against  extreme temperature conditions.
To meet this objective, research will be carried out into the applicability of photopolymerization techniques using microencapsulated PCM’s for textile finishing in order to develop thermally protective textiles using as raw material new fibres such a biofibres.
The state of the art will be essential to achieve the proposal objectives, and it will include information related to photopolymerization technology, microencapsulated PCM’s, textile structures and biofibres, as  well as creating warmth using the Joule effect through the incorporation of conductive materials in the textile creating a resistive electrical circuit.
The degree of innovation in this project is very high due to the application in the field of textiles of innovative technologies such as photopolymerization. It is worth noting that the environmental impact of this technique is negligible when compared to conventional textile finishing,  as no solvents are used thus reducing waste effluent. Another of the environmental advantage is that highly toxic chemicals are not required for the process.
