What is Coolmax Bedding?

Coolmax Bedding

Coolmax bedding and performance fabrics are manufactured under license from Dupont industries.

Coolmax is the trademark used to describe a series of moisture and advanced wicking fabrics that were first developed in 1986.

The superb breath-ability of the bedding material is much greater than natural fabrics such as cotton or polyester blends.

The way that the fabric is produced increases evaporation and wicks away moisture from its central core in such a way that the user feels cool and fresh no matter how long they lie on or in the sheets.

Initially used in performance clothing for today super athletes, sweat is required to evaporate much more quickly from the surface so the user is kept dry.

The fabric is also resistant to fading, shrinkage and creasing which makes it the ideal material to use in today’s bedding.

Coolmax can be blended with other yarns such as cotton, wool or tencel, for best results in your bedding 100% Coolmax fabric is preferred. Although more expensive, it helps with nights sweats and menopause can be combated much more effectively than with mixed products.

Wicking is the action that is described as drawing away moisture from the skin through capillary action.
