Seven Fabrics featuring 37.5™ Technology Selected for ISPO Textrends

Leading supplier of active particle technologies will be part of ISPO Textrends Selection 2015

MÜNCHEN & BOULDER, Colo.--ISPO Textrends 2015 announced that Cocona Inc., a leading manufacturer of active particle technologies under the brand name 37.5, has had seven fabrics selected for inclusion in the distinguished Textrends 2015 forum. Fabrics were chosen by an international jury of journalists, designers and independent experts with highly competitive criteria. The seven selected fabrics featuring 37.5 technology are in four of the eight categories juried, including second layer, membrane & coating, insulation, and outer layer. These fabrics were developed by 37.5 certified mill partners Raco Textile, Chia Her, and Burlington.

“It’s a significant honor to be recognized by Textrends. This validates once again that our technology works – not just in concept or laboratory testing – but in real time, in real materials,” said CEO Jeff Bowman. “We are very appreciative of being selected, and excited at how we are contributing to leading brands and manufacturers.”

The revolutionary 37.5 technology permanently embeds active particles at the fiber level to capture and release moisture vapor. Not only do these particles provide 800% more surface area to the fiber, they also provide a unique driving force to remove moisture vapor unlike any other technology. By actively responding to body heat, the particles use infrared energy from the body to accelerate the vapor movement and speed up the conversion of liquid to vapor, significantly increasing drying rates. This means the hotter the user gets, the stronger the driving force removing moisture becomes – and the more comfortable the garment remains.

ISPO Textrends is a renowned destination for designers and product managers for future trends and innovations in textiles during ISPO Munich, February 5-8. 2015.
