Temperature Regulating Footwear

KulKote is a coating that can be applied to textiles and foams to help regulate temperature. Within footwear, it can be used in any and all parts: linings, uppers, interlinings, footbeds, and more. It helps cool and insulate to provide a better climate for your feet no matter what your activity.

Phase Change Technology

KulKote works by using multiple Phase Change Materials (PCMs) that activate at a variety of temperatures and water-based polymers that have temperature regulating characteristics. As body heat encounters KulKote, the PCMs begin absorbing and releasing energy. As KulKote PCMs absorb heat, a cooling effect is created. As the heat source is removed, the heat energy is released providing insulation. This continuous cycle manages temperature and provides optimal comfort.

Keeping Your Feet At Optimal Comfort

The function of KulKote is long-term temperature regulation. Other products offer an immediate cooling effect, but that effect dissipates quickly making them ineffective. KulKote delivers immediate, ongoing, measurable, and noticeable results. This leads to a decrease in temperature fluctuations, creating a more soothing and comfortable experience for your feet.

KulKote Temperature regulation


KulKote can store and release large amounts of energy, typically in the form of heat. As the temperature rises, KulKote will absorb heat and provide cooling. As the temperature decreases, KulKote releases the energy it absorbs providing warmth/insulation.
No, it will always work and never wear out. It’s even washable.
No, it doesn’t need to be recharged as it absorbs and releases the body’s energy.
All temperatures. KulKote will not generate heat or cold but regulate temperature for more comfort.
KulKote formulations are confidential and treated as trade secrets. However, KulKote is an environmentally friendly, water-based coating – no solvents, no toxic chemicals. For the Safety Data Sheet (SDS), see our product details.
COSMO will perform GSM analysis. Since the weight of the textile is known, it’s quite easy to verify the specifications of KulKote ad-on was met.
