Outlast Debuts Polyester Heat-Management Fiber

Outlast Technologies Inc., Boulder, Colo., developer of Outlast® temperature-regulating technology and phase-change materials (PCMs) and applications, has developed the first heat-management polyester fiber — a bicomponent fiber featuring a PCM core and polyester sheath to combine climate regulation with conventional polyester fiber characteristics, such as low moisture absorption; the ability to transport moisture; improved wrinkle, water and wind resistance; and high tearing and abrasion resistance. Targeted applications include T-shirts, socks, baselayers, athletic wear and underwear.
