KulKote is a coating that can be applied to textiles to help regulate temperature via knife coat, print, or other methods. It helps cool and insulate to provide a better climate than ordinary textiles.
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 comes in contact with KulKote, the PCMs begin absorbing and releasing energy based on their specific melting points. As the PCMs absorb heat, a cooling effect is created. As the heat source is removed, the heat energy is released. This continuous cycle manages temperature to increase comfort for the life of the product.
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 comfortable experience.
