CoolCare®, the innovative cooling sensation for textiles marketed by CTF2000 and Topchim
CTF2000 and Topchim successfully introduced CoolCare®, the jointly developed textile surface treatment for an innovative cool touch sensation when going to sleep, that will be launched by a global premium mattress brand the second half of 2017.
CoolCare® uses the newest generation of encapsulated PCM (phase change materials) invented and patented by Topchim, and outperformed traditional PCM’s after extensive testing and will be launched by a global premium mattress brand in 2017. The CoolCare® surface treatment gives the producers of mattresses a durable solution to offer consumers a cooling sensation when going to sleep.
How do CoolCare® encapsulated Phase change materials work? They have a specific characteristic to capture some of the body heat, generate a cooling sensation which enhances comfort. When its environment is cooling down again, the initially stored heat will be released slowly – all happening inside a durable invisible capsule. This mode of action enables a comfortable regulation of temperature, as it can change over a longer timeframe.
“The CoolCare® membrane differentiates by its unique sustainable profile and combining cooling sensation with inherent easy clean features, built into the skin of the fiber. CoolCare® assures perfect air and vapor permeability, is durable to multiple home launderings, mechanical friction, is non-yellowing and lower flammable“ says Jan Terras, Sales & Marketing manager, the initiator and coordinator of the CoolCare® concept. “This partnership is a reference of joint engineering and intense collaboration between Flemish enterprises resulting into out-of-the-box new business opportunities for both companies, boosting turnover and profit.”
PCM can also be applied in energy systems (heat storage tanks and air conditioners), clothing, technical and sleeping textile, car interiors and interior building materials (wall paper and plaster board) to offer a more comfortable and sustainable control of temperature.
