Hi guys, this is Jane again.
As a fashion lover, we can not thank enough for the invention of functional textiles, where technology and fashion give us the perfect combination. To continue with the functional textiles series, let’s talk about COOLMAX since summer has come and it is getting hotter everyday.
( Visit here to read about antivirus fabric CLEANSE and Catlight)
Found in 1986 by Lycra, COOLMAX is the brand of polyester fibers that aims to help us with the heat. The cooling technology created by permanent moisture wicking and breathable in our clothing.
Coolmax claims to dry 5 times faster than cotton.The most important feature is the cross-section of the fiber. The cross-section of the yarn has a special non-round shape, causing capillary action. Capillary action quickly absorbs sweat. →Perspiration is quickly absorbed by capillary action and evaporated by excellent air permeability. →The temperature of the upper surface of the fabric is lowered by the heat of vaporization during evaporation→Because of its good air permeability, the breeze that passes through the lowered surface of the fabric feels good.
One of the main features of COOLMAX® is its excellent easy care ability.
First of all, it has moisture absorption and quick-drying properties, which are great for daily care, and of course, it can be ironed with a cloth. Also, it has outstanding fabric stability.
No wonder why COOLMAX started out as sportswear but became popular in men’s fashion.
