Heathcoat uses Coolmax freshFX for 'spacetec' collection

The physiological advantages of high-tech fibres that were developed originally in multifunctional textiles for sportswear are becoming more and more interesting for police and military applications. The end-use requirements are comparable: keeping the wearer dry and providing a superb wearing comfort during long hours.

Heathcoat Fabrics Ltd. in UK have included Coolmax in their collection of high tech spacer fabrics, offering maximum and permanent evaporative cooling. The fabrics have the side next to the user made from specifically produced polyester fibres from ADVANSA with an increased surface. This special fibre with its unique shaped channels, create a transport system that pulls moisture away from the skin to the surface of the fabric and ensures that it evaporates fast, thereby helping to maintain a balanced body temperature.

This Spacetech fabrics are specially adequate as inner layer of body armour and other pieces of kits (rucksacks, web gear, etc) as it keeps the moisture management layering system working from the underwear, layer after layer, up to the very bulletproof jacket, allowing space for evaporated moisture to get out of the armour without condensating back inside, as tend to happen when the body armour is tightly compressed against the body without any kind of space left between the ballistic protection and the apparel.

Heathcoat's latest innovation has been produced with Coolmax freshFX fabrics, that trough non migratory silver ion technology, actively suppress the growth of bacteria which are the root cause of body odour and smells related to perspiration on garments. By incorporating a silver based additive to Coolmax, the fabric supplies not only an antimicrobial effect but also a permanent freshness feeling to the user. With Coolmax freshFX not just sweat, but also the odour from sweat is removed so users feel cool, dry and fresh, even during the heaviest exertion.

Jordi Lopez of ADVANSA commented “we are really excited that Coolmax freshFX fabrics are used in Heathcoat's collection “spacetec”, for technical end uses such as body armour with outstanding moisture transport and anti-bacterial performance.

Established for 200 years Heathcoat Fabrics Ltd has an international reputation for innovation and quality, supplying a range of apparel and high technology technical textiles to diverse markets around the world.
