OUTLAST ® technology– Certified Space Technology
From space to earth. Outlast® technology, originally developed for NASA, utilizes phase-change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort. Outlast® technology was originally developed for use in space gloves to protect astronauts against extreme temperature fluctuations. Outlast has continued to develop and test phase-change materials and applications to make this Certified Space Technology™ available to more consumers around the world. These Thermocules™ can be incorporated into fabrics and fibers and have the capacity to absorb, store and release excess heat. This gives any product containing Outlast® technology the ability to continually regulate the skin’s microclimate. As the skin gets hot, the heat is absorbed, and as it cools, that heat is released. With the use of Outlast® technology in products of SIMETRA, active climate regulation positively influences the overall balance of the skin’s micro climate and increases comfort. With less sweat, overheating and chill, the products can contribute to sport performance.
