Is Coolmax® fabric made from polyester fibers?
Coolmax® fabrics are designed to move moisture away from the body and
enhance fabric drying rate thus, keeping you feeling cool and dry. Coolmax®
fabrics deliver performance and comfort through the use of proprietary polyester
fibers with unique engineered microchannel cross sections and/or specially
engineered two sided, denier gradient fabrics made using Coolmax® qualifiable
polyester or nylon yarns. The comfort of Coolmax® fabrics can be enhanced by
using elasterell-p or introducing Lycra® elastane. Click here for more information.
Is Coolmax® a treated polyester?
No, Coolmax® is not a treated polyester. The performance of Coolmax® is
inherent in the fiber structure itself, thereby providing consistent performance
wash after wash.
What's the difference between Coolmax® fabrics and other polyester
Coolmax® fabrics are specially designed to provide not only superior moisture
management, but also to enhance the wearer's comfort. The specially-engineered
fibers using Coolmax® fabrics provide enhanced breathability (called "air
permeability" by the techies) that differentiate Coolmax® from generic polyester
fabrics, which use standard round fibers. Air permeability is just one of our key
performance tests that fabrics must pass before they can be sold as "Coolmax®".
And, remember, that all of the benefits of Coolmax® fabrics are permanently built
right into the fiber, requiring no chemical treatments like those other wicking fabrics.
Why are Coolmax® fabrics more comfortable?
Moisture management + breathability equals total comfort.
Do garments made from Coolmax® require special care?
Most garments made with Coolmax® fabrics are machine washable and dryable;
however, fabric softeners and chlorine bleach should not be used. Some
garments may require special care because of the garment style, not the fabric. It
is best to read the care label inside the garment.
Energy Saving Tip! > Because Coolmax® is so quick drying, you really don't need
to use your dryer. If you've got clothes made from 100% Coolmax®, just hang 'em
up to dry and be amazed at how quick it happens! Great tip for travel too!
Can you silk screen print on Coolmax®?
Absolutely. These shirts can be screenprinted just like regular t-shirts without any
Can I dye my Coolmax® t-shirt?
No, Coolmax® is made from proprietary polyester fibers, and polyester requires
special dye procedures.
Can Coolmax® be worn year-round?
Yes. In cold weather, Coolmax® is a great first layer, especially during high
aerobic activities. It's superior moisture management will keep the bone-chilling
perspiration away from your skin and move it to the outer layers for evaporation.
Remember, you can't stay warm if your body's wet!
What are the advantages of Coolmax® vs. cotton?
Besides its positive effect on maintaining body core temperature, Coolmax® is fast
drying, breathable, and resists fading, shrinking and wrinkling.
