China News Service, Beijing, October 27 (Reporter Chen Hang) The uniforms and equipment for the Beijing Winter Olympics were released in Beijing on the evening of the 27th.

Through the application of new materials, new processes, and new technologies, the Winter Olympics uniforms and equipment have achieved the optimal solution in the two performance dimensions of lightness and warmth, and can adapt to the specific climate conditions of Beijing, Yanqing, and Zhangjiakou during the game, as well as different scenarios and different positions. Work needs.

  Yan Cheng, director of the Human Resources Department of the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee, said that this set of uniforms contains excellent cultural connotations and rich scientific and technological content.

  New thermal insulation materials have the advantages of lightness and warmth

  Liu Yuanfeng, a member of the Winter Olympic Uniform and Equipment Committee and the chairman of the China Fashion Designers Association, said that the difficulty of designing for the Winter Olympics is different from that of the 2008 Summer Olympics. Similarly, this poses a great challenge to the design, especially in the application of materials.

  Yan Cheng said that in terms of material selection, due to the requirements of the special climatic conditions of winter sports, the Winter Olympic uniforms must not only resist the severe cold, windproof and warmth, but also breathable and moisture-permeable, light and comfortable.

But windproof and breathable, warmth and lightness are objectively contradictory.

  Xie Chunlong, general manager of Anta Sports Olympic Division, mentioned that in order to cope with the complex and diverse working environment in winter, uniforms and equipment are planned along the planning ideas of comprehensive protection, multi-level warmth, dryness and comfort, using functional technologies such as heat-collecting cotton.

  In terms of comprehensive protection, the outer fabric achieves wind and water repellency through a composite high-performance membrane, while maintaining the lightness and elasticity of the fabric.

In terms of multi-level heat preservation, a new type of heat preservation material with independent patent technology-heat-gathering cotton, relying on a unique three-dimensional composite structure, can instantly heat up and store heat for a long time.

  Xie Chunlong said that strict laboratory tests have shown that compared with traditional materials, its heat dissipation efficiency has been greatly improved, and it still performs well in international comparisons of similar products.

"According to the objective needs of the winter Olympic uniforms and equipment, we once again carried out targeted and accurate optimization, and finally achieved the optimal solution in the two performance dimensions of lightness and warmth."

  Waterproof down, heat reflection, etc. are also reflected in the winter Olympic uniforms and equipment, helping to create an overall wearing environment that is flexible and balanced in heat and humidity.

The bulkiness of big goose down is about 30% higher than that of ordinary down, and it can quickly recover its bulkiness after stress.

  At the same time, the heat-reflective fabric reflects the body's own long-wavelength heat, assists in heating and keeping warm, and effectively maintains the stable thermal internal circulation of the entire set of equipment.

  The production process has the characteristics of windproof, waterproof and leakproof velvet

  According to Yan Cheng, the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee has spent a lot of energy to achieve a balance through scientific material selection and dressing combinations, which can meet the needs of all scenarios to the greatest extent.

  In terms of process selection, according to the 3D functional partition of the human body, the back, underarms and other parts of the functional underwear suit that are prone to sweating are spliced ​​with single-item moisture-conducting materials and skin-friendly quick-drying materials to achieve multi-functional requirements.

  The cold-proof clothing adopts the hot-melt pressing process of the inner seamless thread, which achieves the excellent characteristics of windproof, waterproof and anti-fleece.

The fabric of the fleece can achieve anti-static effect through post-processing and improve overall wearing comfort.

  In addition, in order to achieve dryness and comfort, the functional underwear strengthens the unidirectional moisture-conducting weaving structure, and quickly conducts sweat away from the body surface during exercise, and discharges it outward through layers of clothing with good air permeability.

  After systematic consideration, the human body, uniform equipment and environment form an organic cycle, so that the wearer can adapt to various scene transitions and become more comfortable.

  8 rounds of version optimization before and after

  Yan Cheng said that uniforms are facing the common needs of 30,000 wearers. Everyone's body shape and dressing habits are different. The shape design must not only have enough tolerance to meet individual needs, but also To ensure the comfort of the inner and outer jacket while wearing, but also to maintain the beauty of the silhouette.

Therefore, several rounds of layout adjustment and optimization have been carried out.

  It is reported that in the process of planning, designing, and producing uniforms during the competition, the uniform team, the chief designer, and the official partner of the Beijing Winter Olympics Organizing Committee Anta devoted themselves to doing a large number of climate chamber experiments and field tests to determine the materials. The combination of selection and dressing was carried out before and after 8 rounds of layout optimization. From more than 600 sets of appearance design works, a set of programs that are most suitable for the atmosphere of the Winter Olympics and best embodying the excellent Chinese culture were selected.

  Xie Chunlong mentioned that the layout design of the whole set of clothing is based on ergonomics, through three-dimensional tailoring to achieve a good fit package, and provide effective support during exercise.

It also matches the uniforms with environmentally friendly and sustainable materials, antibacterial, antistatic, and night-time reflective features, and extends many auxiliary function details to fully reflect the concept of humane care and environmental friendliness.

  Yan Cheng mentioned that in the production process, because the design pattern has to be scaled and positioned according to the corresponding proportions on each uniform of different sizes, the biggest challenge comes from the positioning and printing process.

Anta's technical department and supply chain companies have made a lot of adjustments and improvements in the process, and the relevant patterns and colors are perfectly presented on the uniform. The performance indicators of the finished uniform have also passed the most stringent inspection and testing by professional institutions.

  He said that this uniform contains excellent cultural connotations and rich technological content, conforms to the current concept of sustainable development, and will form a flowing landscape in the Winter Olympics.
