Sales and Market Development
Perspiration is the body’s way of protecting itself from overheating. Most commercially available wicking technologies seek to remove perspiration as quickly as possible. NEXAR® polymer coatings actually utilize the body’s natural sweating process to fuel an active cooling process. As moisture is absorbed from the skin surface, the NEXAR polymer swells and binds with the moisture, which, when released to the environment, provides a cooling effect that exceeds other technologies. Unlike other technologies available in the marketplace, NEXAR polymer coatings do not require complicated fiber or fabric construction and do not rely on a thermally activated process which can be quickly overwhelmed.
NEXAR polymers can be used as a coating, laminate, or additive. Its unique properties make it suitable for the performance fabric markets including protective clothing, active outerwear, bedding, military and intimate apparel. As long as the body is active and generating moisture or moisture vapor, the NEXAR coatings will generate an active cooling effect. Kraton continues to develop new solutions to meet the growing demand for applications our customers need to remain innovative and competitive.
