How can science increase human comfort?
ComfortScience is the application of science to create materials which deliver the most comfortable experience possible. At Dow, we help bring people to achieve their ideal levels of comfort by combining our knowledge of material science with an understanding of how human beings think, feel, sense and behave. We call this ComfortScience.
Whether working, playing or resting, consumers are always looking for a more comfortable experience. Comfort is fundamental to achieving a good quality of life and a sense of wellbeing. At Dow, we work to understand how people experience comfort, and we respond to this through applied science and technology.
We’ve identified three dimensions of comfort. By configuring these qualities differently, we can respond to different needs and tailor solutions to deliver the most comfortable experience possible.
Each dimension is created by a number of parameters working together. By understanding what they are and how to measure them, we’re better able to deliver comfort.
Optimizing the relationship between the weight, shape and size of the body and the material to create a supportive, high-performing system.
Maintaining comfortable levels of temperature and humidity in the microclimate that exists between materials and the human body.
Understanding a material’s textural qualities and its response to light touch, in order to deliver a tangible sensation of wellbeing.
