Devan Chemicals has announced that the company has released its further findings on the Moov&Cool ‘cool comfort’ technology for the apparel/sportswear market. The patented polymer technology was first introduced on Performance Days in April 2018 earlier this year. Devan Chemicals is a worldwide developer of speciality chemicals, headquartered in Belgium.

Moov&Cool is a patented polymer technology, providing a cool comfort feel through a combination of durable heat absorption capacity, thermo conductivity, and a unique, balanced moisture transfer system. In addition to a fast absorption of sweat, the technology helps to manage sweat evaporation in a balanced way. The topical treatment for textiles has been brought to life in an effort to boost the performances of professional athletes, and to enhance comfort for recreational athletes, according to Devan Chemicals.

“Where other technologies count on wind to help evaporate sweat to create cool skin sensation, Moov&Cool uses superfluous heat produced by the body during the sports performance to lower the body core temperature. The effect remains when the wind speed is reduced, which makes it also suitable for indoor sports. When Moov&Cool is exposed to colder conditions, the pore-like openings in the polymeric layer are more closed, trapping heat between the body and the fabric,” Vanessa Daelman, business unit manager performance at Devan said.

Devan established a unique system to guide sportswear manufacturers towards the most suitable solution. The aim is to specifically adapt the application level of Moov&Cool to the intended use. As Devan attaches great importance to scientific proof and independent testing, they teamed up with the Bakala Academy and the University of Leuven to severely test the patented technology.

“As we did more testing with professional athletes, trends we saw earlier can now be confirmed. Moov&Cool lowers the body core temperature significantly and has a positive effect on heart rate and heat perception,” Daelman said. (GK)
