ColdBlack / fabric finish for garments

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2007

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2007

The fact that black clothing heats up when exposed to sunshine is a very familiar problem. In order to combat this effect, Schoeller Textil AG has developed the special textile finishing technology ColdBlack. This has the effect of making black textiles behave almost as if they were white. This means that even a black shade can reflect sunlight, as is the case with lighter colours. As a result, ColdBlack textiles stay cool for longer and store heat for a significantly shorter period than conventional black fabrics, making them much pleasanter to wear – be it for trekking, mountain sports or motor cycling. Prototype jacket available for jury.
