PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (October 2, 2014) – Coolcore, the global leader in chemical-free cooling material, announced today they have been named a finalist in the inaugural ITMA Future Materials Awards in the “Most Innovative Small Company” category. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Nov. 26, 2014, in Dresden, Germany. The World Textile Information Network (WTiN) developed the Future Materials Awards to reward innovation in the technical textile markets and will recognize winners in 16 categories, including the best innovations in sportswear, protective textiles, industrial textiles and medical textiles.
“We are extremely grateful to be selected as a finalist among such an elite group of companies who are leaders in their respective divisions,” said Kevin McCarthy, president and CEO at Coolcore. “We have dedicated our business around providing select partners and consumers with best-in-class performance materials and products, and it’s an honor to be recognized by WTiN and receive this validation from such an esteemed source.“
Coolcore’s patented, chemical-free cooling material innovation has undergone more than four years of lab and field testing and became the first U.S. company to earn the prestigious Hohenstein Institute’s “Innovative Technology” award and the first company globally to earn it for “Cooling Power.” Coolcore partners with select consumer brands who use its fabrics in their products and also develops proprietary brands, such as Dr. Cool, the first flexible fabric wrap that provides ice and compression in one product.
Coolcore, a Portsmouth, NH-based company, is a material innovator and global leader in chemical-free cooling fabrics. Its patented, chemical-free material delivers three distinct functions — wicking, moisture circulation and regulated evaporation — going far beyond traditional moisture-management textiles by reducing surface fabric temperature up to 30 percent.
Coolcore fabric formulations have earned the prestigious “Innovative Technology” recognition from the Hohenstein Institute, a first for a U.S. company, and the only company globally to be awarded this recognition for “Cooling Power”. The Coolcore distribution channels include partnerships with consumer brands, Dr. Cool Recovery-On-The-Go wraps and Coolcore-branded apparel, and accessories in international markets.
