CoolPlus® Wicking Fabric
Our CoolPlus® wicking sport fabric applies “capillary action” to rapidly wick away sweat from the skin’s surface. With micro slits on the fiber surface, our CoolPlus® fabric absorbs the sweat, transports the sweat down the micro slit channels, and diffuses the moisture. This wicking process releases hot air and moisture out of the body leaving your skin feeling fresh and cool.
So how does CoolPlus® actually wick moisture?
Macro CoolPlus® wicking fabric moves moisture away from the skin and transfers and disperses it to the surface of the garment. With our unique capillary moisture management system, the CoolPlus® wicking fabric quickly transfers moisture via multiple channels to larger surface areas of the garment to assist in moisture evaporation.
Macro CoolPlus® wicking fabric has 12% – 74% higher diffusion ability and 11% – 47% higher drying effect than that of cotton.
Macro CoolPlus® wicking fabric features extreme breathability for the wearer. Some wicking fabrics may swell when absorbing moisture but Macro’s CoolPlus® wicking fabric moves the moisture out of the garment making it highly breathable. In addition to the breathability of our CoolPlus® material to keep users cool and crisp, Macro’s CoolPlus® wicking fabric also features small micro-slits on the fibers which prevents the fabric from sticking to skin, making the wicking and cooling process that much more efficient.
