Coolmax® is a registered trademark of Invista. It is a polyester fiber with specific characteristics that give special properties to the fabrics produced with it. It is a fiber that is fundamentally capable of transporting the moisture produced by sweat, to the outside by capillarity and then it evaporates. Therefore it is widely used in those garments that are directly in contact with the skin. Although its use is not directly related to the protection against cold is a great advantage in the fight of an athlete against cooling to get a quick drying of the fabric.
The Coolmax® confers lightness, flexibility, comfort, breathability and quick drying. Its use avoids the annoying wet sensation, as well as the possible appearance of blisters or chafing. The Coolmax in its different versions is used in almost any sportswear, but especially in first layers, or in those that are directly in contact with the skin.
Care of Coolmax®:
The Coolmax® fabric is very easy to care because these products can be machine washed and placed in the dryer. In any case, in few occasions you will need the dryer since practically drying is automatic after the washing machine. However, some Coolmax® models require special care due to their design (not the material), so it is always recommended to look at the label of washing instructions.
