About COOLMAX® technology
It is a performance, fast drying, cooling technology that wicks moisture to help keep you cool, dry and comfortable during any activity.
COOLMAX® technology is not a fabric or a garment. Instead, it’s a fiber that is combined with other fibers to create comfortable clothing offering cooling and quick drying performance.
You can find it in performance clothing for activewear and outdoor gear, but also in everyday garments such as jeans and ready-to-wear clothing, intimate apparel and underwear, socks and workwear. It can also be found in bedding.
COOLMAX® technology is a synthetic or man-made polyester fiber that is made from recycled resources like PET bottles or 100% textile waste.
The LYCRA Company owns the COOLMAX® brand, in addition to the THERMOLITE® brand and LYCRA® brand, the original spandex yarn. We innovate and produce fiber and technology solutions for the apparel and personal care industries.
We produce several types of COOLMAX® technology that fall under three consumer brands: COOLMAX® EcoMade technology, COOLMAX® EcoMade ALL SEASON technology, and COOLMAX® EcoMade PRO technology. Each one is engineered to provide unique performance benefits to a wide range of apparel.
