COOLMAX® Performance Technology

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Coolmax is the brand name for a series of polyester fabrics developed
and marketed by Invista (formerly Dupont Textiles and Interiors).

Coolmax is marketed as "moisture-wicking" and "breathable".
As a polyester, it is moderately hydrophobic, so it absorbs little fluid and dries 
relatively quickly (compared to absorbent fibers such as cotton).
The cross-section is non-round, increasing surface area by an estimated 20%
(over round fibers) in order to produce a wicking effect via capillary action


How does it work?

Unlike other fibres, CoolMax fibres aren’t round. They’re slightly oblong
shaped in cross-section with grooves running lengthwise along the threads.
Manufactured in a tetrachannel or hexachannel style allows moisture/liquid
to be drawn away quickly from the skin. The moisture wicks through the
fabric via these channels and out to a wider surface area for a greater
evaporation rate. Keeping your feet feeling cool, dry and fresher for longer.
