TAF with Outlast Technologies launches new generation PCM Acrylic Fiber

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-05-22 16:00:00 – HEIDENHEIM, Germany

Thai Acrylic Fibre Co. Ltd., fiber manufacturer from Bangkok/Thailand together with Outlast Technologies LLC, market leader in phase change materials (PCM) announce successful development of a new generation PCM acrylic fiber. The new fiber provides four times the performance and offers perfect climate comfort for apparel and home textiles.

According to Martin Bentz, President of Outlast Technologies LLC, Golden/USA, the new production process has allowed the Outlast acrylic fiber to perform four times better than the existing version. They are using now a non-encapsulated pPCM system and they no longer work with encapsulated mPCMs here.

This change allowed them to improve the performance of the new Outlast acrylic fibers enormously as the spinning and dyeing properties are enhanced. This especially plays a positive role for dark colors - darker tones are easier to achieve now through a better color absorbance.

The new Outlast acrylic fibers absorb excess body heat, store and release it. The performance fibers regulate the climate proactively – in contrast with other technologies that only wick away humidity.

Outlast technology proactively manages heat while controlling the production of moisture before it begins, so less humidity is produced inside the apparel. This Outlast difference also results in more comfort as well as improved hygiene, which is important especially when it comes to socks.

The new Outlast acrylic fiber blends very well with wool. It is well suited for use in socks, knitwear (e.g. pullovers) and home textiles (blankets) offering the significant added value of a dynamic heat and moisture management.
