NEXAR polymer's moisture activated cooling technology is designed to utilize the body's natural sweating process to fuel an active cooling process.  As moisture is absorbed from the skin surface, NEXAR polymer swells and binds with the moisture, which, when released to the environment provides a cooling effect that exceeds other technologies.  Unlike other technologies available in the marketplace, NEXAR polymer coatings do not require complicated fiber or fabric construction and do not rely on a thermal activation.

"We want to capitalize on the momentum of the recent commercial success of NEXAR polymers by continuing the conversation with textile industry leaders about how NEXAR's moisture activated cooling technology is a real game changer," said Holger Jung, Vice President Sales and Marketing. "The evolution of NEXAR polymers creates new opportunities for use as a coating, laminate, or additive.  Its unique properties make it suitable for the performance fabrics markets including protective clothing, industrial uniforms, bedding, military and intimate apparel."
