World’s first climate regulating PCM polyester fiberfill launched
November 09, 2012 (Germany)

Outlast Technologies, market leader for temperature regulating phase change materials (PCMs), presents a new PCM fiberfill material for bedding that utilizes the recently launched world’s first PCM polyester fiber.

“This is another milestone for us and we are proud of this new, high performing development, which helps regulate the sleeping climate in an optimum way,” says Martin Bentz, Managing Director of Outlast Europe GmbH, Heidenheim/Germany.

“Our PCM polyester fiber can now be used as filling for duvets, pillows or sleeping bags and helps to actively balance temperature and humidity during the night.”

The new PCM fiberfill manages the climate inside the bed proactively, in contrast with other technologies that only wick away humidity. Tests with the independent system THG SleepView (from C. Russ) indicated that a duvet with an Outlast PCM fiberfill can reduce absolute humidity by 48% compared to a traditional duvet.

“This is an impressive added value,” says Bentz, “which clearly demonstrates the proactive way our technology works.” But what is the Outlast difference According to Martin Bentz Outlast technology works continuously to manage heat and moisture while reducing sweat production right from the beginning, so less humidity is created inside the bed. The Outlast difference then influences a person’s overall comfort that leads to a better night’s rest.”

The new Outlast polyester fiberfill can be easily blended with other fibers and is suited for bedding products with synthetic fillings. The result: cuddly and soft with the added value of an ideal comfort climate. Initial market reactions have been very positive and point to Outlast technology’s superior performance with tests conducted on pilot customers that provided excellent results. Consumers can look forward to the new development.

For customers looking for the idea temperature via down and feather products, Outlast continues to offer a multiple proven solution for the ideal temperature regulation. In this situation, coated nonwovens are used to absorb, store and release excess body heat, while still maintaining the look and feel of feather or down. The performance is comparable to the PCM fiberfill, however customers using the new Outlast polyester fiberfill can take advantage of not having to add an extra layer of fabric into their product.
