KulKote is a Temperature Regulating Technology. It’s a proprietary coating consisting of water based polymers and Phase Change Materials (PCM). This coating can be applied to foams or fabrics for the purpose of regulating body temperature.
What is Phase Change Material (PCM)?
Phase Change Material (PCM) is a substance with a high heat of fusion which, by melting and solidifying at certain temperatures is capable of storing and releasing large amounts of energy. PCM’s either absorb or release heat when the material changes from solid to liquid and vice versa. PCM’s are classified as latent heat storage (LHS) units. When a PCM is cold, it releases a large amount of energy at a relatively constant temperature. Conversely, when energy is applied, it absorbs a large amount of heat from the environment. Think of the PCM as a jelly bean – hard outer shell with a soft inside. The soft inside, absorbs and releases heat as conditions change, for temperature control.
What industries are using KulKote?
KulKote is used in the following industries - bedding, automotive, aerospace, furniture, medical, clothing, footwear, sporting goods, and pet products.
