coldblack® to keep you cool!

Dark colors heat up stronger when exposed to direct sunlight compared to light colors. This no longer needs to happen!

Now there is coldblack®, a special finishing technology for textiles which reduces heat build-up and provides reliable protection from UV rays.


The coldblack® Advantage

Light colored textiles reflect both visible and invisible rays of sunlight, meaning both heat and light. Dark colored textiles absorb both types of rays and therefore absorb heat. coldblack® reduces the absorption of heat rays particularly in the case of darker colors and in all types of textiles. The result is tangibly better heat management.

Many textiles worn in the summertime or exposed to the sun offer poor protection from damaging UV rays. The coldblack® technology guarantees a minimum UPF 30 protection when applied to any textile in any color without affecting the look or feel of the product. As a result, textiles with coldblack® can make an effective contribution to protecting against harmful UV rays.

Optimal protection from heating up due to sunlight
Because textiles finished with coldblack® heat up less in all colors compared with material without a coldblack® finish.

Textiles stay cool to the touch
When applied to clothing this means that the wearer perspires less, feels better and is capable of greater performance.
Reliable protection from UV rays (minimum UPF 30)
Protection from UV-A and UV-B rays. UV-A rays accelerate the aging of skin. UV-B rays cause a pigment change, resulting in long term browning. Without effective UPF protection (Ultraviolet Protection Factor), aggressive oxygen molecules are released which cause sunburn or which can lead to the formation of melanoma.
