US: Garmatex develops advanced cooling fabric
IceSkin garments are currently available in Garmatex branded golf shirts and towels
Performance fabric specialist Garmatex Technologies has developed an advanced cooling fabric designed to help wearers function in extreme weather temperatures by regulating body temperature.
IceSkin was launched at the PGA Fashion and Demo Experience in Las Vegas, this week. The fabric uses natural jade minerals, in combination with Garmatex's CoolSkin quick dry microfibre filaments, to harness the cooling effects of the body's perspiration and optimise comfort by lowering the skin's surface temperature.
IceSkin garments are currently available in Garmatex branded golf shirts and towels. The company said it ultimately plans to sell the fabric to leading apparel and medical brands.
