What is COOLMAX® technology?

The COOLMAX® brand is a family of polyester fibers that are designed to help you beat the heat. This cooling technology creates clothing with permanent moisture-wicking performance.

Whether it’s a hot day, you want to stay cool in the office, or you’re working out, COOLMAX® technology transports moisture away from your skin to the surface of the fabric where it evaporates quickly to help keep you cool, dry and comfortable.

If you’re interested in sustainable fashion, look for COOLMAX® brand technologies featuring the EcoMade name. This indicates the garment is made from recycled resources, so you can feel good about your purchase.

Before any garment can use a COOLMAX® brand name, its fabric must pass rigorous testing in our labs to ensure product authenticity, performance and durability. Are you wondering what makes each COOLMAX® brand technology unique?
