Coolcore, a provider of chemical-free thermoregulating fabrics, is introducing Fuze silver and gold alloy technology to its range of fabrics, giving them the added benefit of odor control. Fuze, a water based topical fabric treatment, permanently binds to fabrics providing odor control while enhancing UVA/ UVB protection, hyper-evaporation and cooling, said the companies.
“Fuze shares many of Coolcore’s characteristics, including performance that never washes out,” said David Ludd, Coolcore’s Vice President of Global Marketing. “Coolcore with Fuze is the next step in our mission to provide the best performance fabrics to the market in an ecologically friendly and responsible manner.”
“Fuze works at a nano level, attacking bacteria as soon as it comes in contact with the fabric, killing odors,” said Andrew Peterson, president of Fuze BioTech, LLC based in Salt Lake City, UT.
In a twenty-four-hour period tests showed that fabrics with Fuze reduced odors by 95%., said the companies.
Coolcore fabrics with Fuze will be available in spring 2018 with commercialized products slated for spring 2019 introductions.
