Coolcore, the global leader in thermoregulation fabrics, has been awarded the "Best Innovation – Sports and Outdoor Apparel" for its patented line of cooling fabrics, at the ITMA Future Materials Awards 2015 along the sidelines of the International Textiles Machinery (ITMA) Exhibitionin Milan.

"It's an unbelievable honour to be recognized by our industry colleagues, for this incredibly important achievement, especially considering we were up against 11 world-class companies," said Kevin McCarthy, President and CEO of Coolcore, in a press release.

"We're extremely excited to be at the forefront of chemical-free thermoregulation at this exciting time in technical textiles,"McCarthy, said.

The ITMA Future Materials Awards are organized by the World Textile Information Network (WTIN) celebrating the best innovations in the textiles industry. The awards are given in 19 dedicated categories providing competition for all end-use sectors for technical textiles as well as materials experts, product developers and designers.

In addition to the award for "Best Innovation," the American company was named a finalist in the "Groundbreaking Partnership" category for its collaboration marketing launch programs. Coolcore fabric formulations have also earned the prestigious "Innovative Technology" recognition from the Hohenstein Institute, a first for a US company, and the only company globally to be awarded this recognition for "Cooling Power."

Apart from being a leader in apparel fabric innovations, Coolcore provides innovation for headwear and accessories anchored by two crucial patents. Coolcore owns US Patent No. 8,440,119 for its cooling material innovation. The patent covers the manufacturing of any chemical-free cooling fabric that transfers moisture away from the skin, while regulating the movement and evaporation of that moisture throughout the fabric as described in the patent.

Coolcore was also issued US Patent No. 9,121,642 for "Method of Cooling an Object with a Fabric." The patent covers activation that includes wetting the item, wringing out excess liquid, and snapping or waving the fabric to activate the moisture control through the fabric. Even more specifically, the present invention is for a fabric that becomes cool when activated by liquid and remains cool for an extended period of time thereafter.

Coolcore has partnerships to develop fabrics for consumer brands throughout the world. The patented, chemical-free Coolcore materials deliver three distinct functions — wicking, moisture circulation and regulated evaporation — going far beyond traditional moisture-management textiles by managing thermoregulation and reducing surface fabric temperature up to 30 percent lower than skin temperature when moisture is present.
