Comfort in your Hands




The skin is the largest organ in the human body. It protects the body from the sun's rays, protects body tissues against injuries and helps regulate body temperature by making the pores larger or smaller (normal body temperature 37 °C or 98.6 °F).

The nerves in the skin receive the stimulus that is then interpreted by the brain as touch, heat and cold.

Skin temperature depends on air temperature and time spent in the environment.

One square inch (6.5 square centimeters) of skin contains up to 4.5 m of blood vessels, which have as one of their functions the regulation of body temperature. The skin varies in thickness from 0.5 mm on the eyelids to 4 mm or more on the palms and soles.

The normal temperature of skin is about 33 °C or 91 °F. The flow of energy to and from the skin determines our sense of hot and cold. Heat flows from higher to lower temperature, so the human skin will not drop below that of surrounding air, regardless of wind. If a person was to be in a warm room and her skin temperature was cooler than the air, her skin temperature would rise. The opposite would happen in a cold room and warm skin temperature. The person's temperature would decrease. Humans fight air temperature by becoming warm or cold. When warm, they sweat. When cold, they get chills.




The concept of temperature comfort is vast but surely if you have ice in your hands it might give you some chills.

Stainless Steel, copper, brass, plastic are used to manufacture Mechanical Mods. In cold countries these kind of objects are not very attractive. The best way to have comfort in a cold day is a material such as Cork.

The good news is that Cork is used in the Suber model from Sobreiro Mods.
