Coolcore Receives Patent for Cooling Towel Activation

When it’s deliver-or-die, supply chains become the lifeblood of a company. To that end, the fashion industry has embraced technology to navigate today’s hyper-complicated supply chain, with myriad solutions shaping the first, middle and last mile. Call it Sourcing 2.0.

Coolcore, a leading chemical-free cooling fabric innovator, was recently issued a patent for its cooling towel activation, U.S. Patent No. 9,121,642 for “Method of Cooling an Object with a Fabric,” by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

This patent covers the three-step process of activation, wetting the item, wringing out excess liquid and snapping or waving the fabric to activate moisture control. It is used specifically for a fabric that becomes cool when activated by liquid and remains cool for an extended period of time.

“As the original innovator of chemical-free cooling fabrics, our intellectual property and the ongoing commitment to innovation continues to reinforce our position in the market today,” said Coolcore CEO and president, Kevin McCarthy. “Coolcore is the leader in chemical-free instant cooling towels, accessories, and headwear…imitators should note that we will vigilantly protect our intellectual property in the marketplace.”

The company also owns a patent for its cooling material innovation, which deals with the manufacturing of any chemical-free cooling fabric that works by transferring moisture away from the skin, while regulating the movement and evaporation of that moisture throughout the material.
