There are activities that cause some areas of our body to sweat more than others when we do not have the appropriate equipment, causing our health to be weakened, for example, suffering symptoms of the well-known athlete’s foot.
But thanks to rapidly advancing technology, The Coolmax fabric was born, used in the manufacture of countless work clothes and footwear, to offer optimum comfort and ensure that safety footwear is not damp during the working day.
Coolmax fabric is a fibre identified by its capacity to evaporate humidity easily.
A garment made with coolmax fabric equals quality, and although there may be other fabrics that may appear to have the characteristics of coolmax, this fabric is unique in the safety footwear industry.
This fabric is a polyester fibre capable of transferring moisture from perspiration to the outside of garments, thus allowing it to evaporate.
Although coolmax fabrics are able to evaporate sweat, they do not have the characteristics to protect against the cold, as thermal garments may have, so in cold months it is essential to combine coolmax fabrics with other specialized layers against the cold.
Benefits of coolmax fabric
The main reason why coolmax fabric was used in the manufacture of clothing and footwear, especially safety footwear, was the fabric’s ability to evaporate sweat.
Among the main benefits of clothes made with this fabric are the following:
- They allow users to stay dry due to its sweat evaporation properties.
- In addition, it is a fabric that is easy to wash and can be washed in the washing machine without damaging the garment.
- Obviously, if it is a fabric that allows for easy evaporation of sweat, it also allows for quick drying of the garment.
Workwear with coolmax fabric
As we have already mentioned, garments made with this type of fabric are known as first layers. Some examples of work wear made with coolmax are as follows:
Keeping feet dry is one of the most useful functions of this type of fabric. That is why coolmax socks are recommended to keep feet comfortable, dry and away from any illnesses caused by continuous humidity in jobs where you come into contact with fluids in this area of the body.
Coolmax thermal trousers and T-shirt
As with your feet, thermal underwear can help keep your body dry as well as warm. The combination of a thermal T-shirt and thermal trousers makes it possible to work comfortably in hot or cold environments and at the same time simply evaporate the sweat produced.
Coolmax Inner Insoles
The insoles are a good option to combine with coolmax socks to keep the sole of the foot cool and dry at all times.
In addition, insoles with coolmax fabric provide anti-static, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
