GEO uses the body’s energy to enhance comfort all day, every day. These hydrophilic active particles have thermal conductivity 3000% greater than that of polyester polymer. GEO is added during the dyeing of filament polyester fabrics or yarns, being infused with the fiber structure to provide permanent performance for the life of the garment.
Moisture management (wicking and fast drying) is inherent to GEO as the active hydrophilic particles effectively transport moisture through the fabric. Its highly conductive nature provides energy to drive the moisture out by using the skin’s heat to make sweat evaporate faster. GEO is a unique and adaptable technology that provides thermoregulation through efficient heat management and moisture transfer in the fabric, enhancing comfort and performance.
FRESHGUARD® WITH ODOR CONTROL
Comfort can be measured in physical terms, but it is defined by the state of mind, a sense of well-being, or “fresh-being”. OPTIMER FRESHGUARD Odor Control is a durable antimicrobial technology for reducing odor caused by bacteria in textiles. It’s like having a “clean room” inside, where smells have a tough time forming.
The sensation of freshness can make all the difference in the world when it comes to feeling comfortable. OPTIMER FRESHGUARD Odor Control is hypoallergenic. This technology has been formulated for a wide variety of textiles used in apparel, medical, home and industrial applications. Redefining comfort with a fresh state of mind.
INTELLIGENT COMFORT WITH PHASE CHANGE
OPTIMER ADAPT Phase Change a unique microencapsulated bio-based material that reacts to changes in body temperature to maintain balanced comfort.
Playing in the snow, fun in the sun, or relaxing between the sheets, OPTIMER ADAPT has the power to positively impact life on many levels. A built-in thermostat set to automatically manage our personal climate may just be wishful thinking, but a fabric infused with ADAPT technology is the closest thing to having this dynamic approach to human comfort in textiles.
OPTIMER ADAPT utilizes natural phase change material designed to reuse, restore and recycle the body’s thermal energy. As the body heats up, the ADAPT material liquefies and stores this energy assisting the body in its efforts to cool down. Reacting to a cold environment, the material solidifies and releases the stored energy back to the body for warmth. This ability to adapt to the environment and the body’s response provides a thermal balance for enhanced comfort.
OPTIMER ADAPT has been formulated for a wide variety of textile content, giving it the versatility to be a part of a vast range of end uses. All markets, from active to casual, workwear to fashion, and bedding to medical benefit from ADAPT’s redefining of comfort. Built to last the product’s lifetime, OPTIMER ADAPT transforms the ordinary into extraordinary.
