Outlast Technologies, leader in heat management and moisture reduction technology, recognizes Far Eastern New Century Corporation as the primary partner involved in the new Outlast polyester fiber development. Outlast polyester, Outlast's most recent R&D innovation, is the first-ever heat management polyester fiber.

Outlast selected Far Eastern as a key development partner because of its reputation as a world-class producer of high quality textile products from fiber through to fabric. Far Eastern's extensive development capabilities proved invaluable in taking the basic technical concept of Outlast polyester through to new fibers, yarns and fabric.

Far Eastern's chemical fiber division, manufacturer and seller of fiber and textile products, is developing fibers for both the short staple cotton spinning system and the long staple worsted wool system. Its spun yarn division developed a range of Outlast polyester/cotton yarns, and its fabric division developed the world's first Outlast polyester knit fabrics.

Other significant partners include Fountain Set Ltd. and Chia Her Industrial Company Ltd., both long standing partners with Outlast viscose and Outlast acrylic. Hong Kong-based Fountain Set Ltd., one of the world's largest circular knitted fabric manufacturers, offers a range of Outlast polyester knitted fabrics; Chia Her Industrial Company Ltd., Taiwan's leading woven fabric producer, provides a range of Outlast polyester woven fabrics.

“This new fiber is the result of global coordination across our operations in North America, Europe and Asia, unifying Outlast research and development efforts around the world,” says Greg Roda, President and CEO of Outlast Technologies. “Our partners are a key asset in the advancement of Outlast polyester, and, as we continue to commercialize, we will gain insight to ensure a quality polyester fiber.”

Outlast polyester features heat management benefits offering a unique fiber that can be applied to a range of functional apparel and next-to-skin applications. A bi-component fiber with a phase change material (PCM) core and polyester sheath, Outlast polyester offers superior comfort through heat management.

Outlast Technologies Inc, a privately held U.S. corporation, is the worldwide leader in phase change materials and applications. Outlast technology is the heat management technology originally developed for NASA that enables any textile to absorb, store and release heat.
