Coolcore receives patent for cooling-towel activation

Industry News | November 11, 2015 | By:

Chemical-free cooling-fabric innovator Coolcore® has been awarded a U.S. patent for “Method of Cooling an Object with a Fabric.” The patent covers activation that includes wetting the item, wringing out excess liquid, and snapping or waving the fabric to activate the moisture control. The innovation is a fabric that becomes cool when activated by liquid and remains cool for an extended period of time thereafter.

Coolcore, based in Portsmouth, N.H., develops and provides private-label cooling towels, as well as cooling apparel and accessories under the Dr. Cool brand name. It also develops fabrics for several global consumer brands. Its chemical-free materials deliver three distinct functions—wicking, moisture circulation and regulated evaporation—that manage thermoregulation and reduce surface fabric temperature up to 30 percent lower than skin temp when moisture is present.
