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.
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.
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.
