ZCool Fabric Difference
CURRENT COOLING FABRICS AND T-SHIRTS: Most of the available products today use lightweight polyester material with a finish that wicks moisture (similar to TransDRY® used on cotton) to create a lightweight fabric that will wick moisture away from the body. The effectiveness of these polyester wicking fabrics at keeping your body comfortable in heat and humidity is minimal and quickly dissipates as the fiber becomes overloaded with body heat and perspiration.
ZCool FABRIC AND T-SHIRTS provide a noticeable and remarkable cooling effect on a person touching or wearing products or garments made from ZCool fabric. This fabric dries nearly four times faster than typical “cool t-shirts” in laboratory tests. The performance advantage over typical so-called polyester “cooling t-shirts” is twofold: ZCool achieves superior cooling by transporting moisture at an exceptionally high rate, and ZCool fabric technology does not trap and hold heat like polyester. In fact, ZCool yarn is 45% lighter than polyester.
