Outlast Develops First Climate Regulating Polyester Fiber (02/09/2011)

Updated: 2011/2/9 10:44:00

Outlast Technologies broadens its product offering by maintaining a steady pace of innovation. After intensive research and development, Outlast Technologies, Inc.,Boulder/Colorado, the market leader in temperature regulating phase change materials (PCMs), is pleased to announce the introduction of Outlast® polyester fiber.

This announcement comes just four years after the introduction of the first Outlast® viscose fiber and eleven years after the introduction of Outlast® acrylic fiber with PCM. The newest member of the Outlast fiber family is a bicomponent fiber with a PCM core and a polyester sheeth. Staple fibers will launch in market first, followed by filament fibers once the production process has been fully refined.

The new Outlast® polyester fiber offers the added value of balancing temperature coupled with the characteristics of a conventional polyester fiber (e.g. low moisture absorption; ability to transport moisture; improved wrinkle resistance; superior light, water and wind resistance and an above average durability). The result is increased comfort—chilling and sweating are reduced due to the optimum climate regulation. The new fiber with temperature management aligns particularly well with underwear and other products worn next to skin such as socks, tshirts, shirts and trousers. At ispo, the international fair for Sports Equipments and Fashion held in Munich, Outlast will exhibit and present this latest innovation.
