Thermo°Cool is a good Ecological Option for Performancewear

Leading athletic apparel manufacturers across Europe are selecting ADVANSA Thermo°Cool, a unique thermoregulation fiber, to provide the special benefits that distinguish their products in the demanding performancewear market. ADVANSA Thermo°Cool polyester yarns provide unequaled wicking performance with body temperature maintenance, the perfect bundle of benefits for athletes and outdoor enthusiasts.

Lurbel, the leading seamless manufacturer in Spain, has selected ADVANSA Thermo°Cool not only for its wicking and thermoregulation benefits but also for its softness, a critical feature in seamless performancewear. Also, Lurbel uses ADVANSA Thermo°Cool ECO made from renewable feedstocks to provide their clientele with superior performance that is also environmentally considerate.

Grifone, producer of technical clothing for extreme adventure hiking, chose ADVANSA Thermo°Cool because it delivered superior wicking combined with the necessary thermoregulation performance demanded by athletes who climb and hike in severe climates. Grifone will be displaying at Outdoor Retailer in Booth ESA511.

Alpine Pro, a Czech company that operates throughout Europe, uses ADVANSA Thermo°Cool in its exclusive line of technical outdoor wear, underwear, and anoraks.

Gerard Illeras of ADVANSA commented, “We are very pleased that, in the fiber's first year on the European market, these leading brands are already presenting ADVANSA Thermo°Cool in their garment collections. The response to ADVANSA Thermo°Cool has been very positive and we look forward to introducing this remarkable fiber to the U.S. market at OR next week.”

As a result of the unique fiber construction, fabrics made with ADVANSA Thermo°Cool are able to provide superior moisture and temperature control to keep wearers comfortable across a wide range of temperatures and activity levels:

During physical exertion or in hot weather, ADVANSA Thermo°Cool wicks moisture faster than other materials by as much as 48%. The fiber is designed with maximum surface area and micro-channels to transport moisture quickly away from the skin. The fiber's hollow interior enhances air circulation and focuses energy on the heat transfer process to maximize evaporative cooling. In fact, ADVANSA Thermo°Cool evaporates moisture 53% better than other options.

When the wearer is at risk of chills, such as after physical activity in cold weather, the fiber's channels also enable the fabric to provide lightweight, thermo-buffering properties. It protects against rapid temperature changes, capturing body heat or allowing excess heat to dissipate evenly as the wearer's body temperature dictates.

ADVANSA Thermo°Cool, specially designed for performance sports apparel, will be launched in the U.S. at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, August 8-11, in Booth 255-523. Product photos are available upon request.

The Ecological Option:
Answering customers' expectations, ADVANSA ThermoºCool is also available in an ECO version. For customers concerned about the environment, this version uses a polymer that is made from renewable resources, such as corn, instead of traditional petrochemical derivates.

This puts ADVANSA ThermoºCool ECO right in the middle of the market trend. “By replacing traditional petrochemicals with renewable resources and biological processes, we are a step closer to building a renewable economy. This is fully consistent with ADVANSA's sustainability policy. We also want to take part in this worldwide effort by offering customers the possibility to make an ecological choice” said Gerard Illeras, ADVANSA's Sportswear market manager.
