Sleep better and more soundly – thanks to the innovative Outlast phase change material (PCM) this goal can be achieved easily due to an optimum climate regulation.
Outlast Technologies, market leader for temperature regulating phase change materials (PCMs), enlarges its product range with climate regulating fiber balls which can be used in bedding. The PCM fiber balls based on polyester offer besides PCM waddings a new possibility to balance temperature in duvets or pillows and to reduce humidity significantly while sleeping. The new PCM fiberfill manages the climate inside the bed proactively and reduces sweat production right from the beginning, so less humidity is created inside the bed which leads to more comfort and a better night’s rest. The new PCM filling material is suited for bedding products with synthetic fillings. The fiber balls are very cuddly and soft and easy to handle. Outlast offers manufacturers a new option also to work with other filling systems.
Outlast® technology was originally developed for NASA to protect astronauts from temperature fluctuations in space. Outlast® technology utilizes phase change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort. Outlast® technology is comparable to ice in a drink; as it changes from solid to liquid, it absorbs heat and cools the drink, keeping that drink at the desired temperature for a longer period of time. Outlast® phase change materials work in the same way. The PCMs have the capacity to absorb, store and release excess heat. This gives any product containing Outlast® technology the ability to continually regulate skin’s microclimate. As the skin gets hot, the heat is absorbed, and as it cools, that heat is released. Outlast® technology is not wicking technology, which manages moisture by reacting to your sweat and pulling it away from the skin. Outlast® technology will proactively manage heat while controlling the production of moisture before it begins. That’s the Outlast® difference. The benefits of Outlast® products at a glance:
* Absorbs excess body heat
* Manages moisture
* Reduces overheating
* Reduces chilling
* Reduces perspiration
* Continuously adapts to thermal changes
In times where competition is getting tougher, Outlast offers a true, winning benefit to its customers and retailers. They are able to offer an added value that improves comfort in the sleeping environment as well as increase the attractiveness of their line of goods. Experience has shown that PCM products have great sell-through and can drive an increase in sales.
