Outlast Technologies, leader in heat management and moisture reduction technology, announces the introduction of Outlast polyester fiber. After extensive research and development, Outlast has succeeded in creating the first-ever heat management polyester fibers extending the range of applications and markets in which the technology can be used.

The newest member of the Outlast fiber family is a bi-component fiber with a phase change material (PCM) core and polyester sheath. Other Outlast fibers include Outlast viscose and Outlast acrylic with PCM. Staple fibers of the polyester will launch in the market first, followed by filament fibers.

“Outlast is a leading R&D company in the PCM industry and the launch of Outlast polyester fiber demonstrates our commitment to innovation,” says Greg Roda, president and CEO of Outlast Technologies. “Outlast viscose and Outlast acrylic have seen great success and this new polyester fiber allows Outlast technology to infiltrate the functional apparel market, leading to company growth on a global level.”

Outlast polyester features the unique added value of heat management with the same characteristics of other polyester fibers: low moisture absorption, ability to transport moisture, improved wrinkle resistance, water and wind resistance as well as high tearing and abrasion resistance. Outlast polyester is perfectly suited for functional apparel and other applications worn next to skin including t-shirts, socks, base layers, athletic wear and underwear all offering superior comfort.

Staple fibers of Outlast polyester will debut at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market: January 20-23, 2011, at Salt Palace Convention Center, Salt Lake City, Utah.
