Outlast Acquires Frisby39 S PCM Assets

Boulder, Colo.-based Outlast Technologies Inc. has acquired the remaining phase change material (PCM) assets of Frisby Technologies Inc., Advance, N.C. The acquisition includes various technology licenses; Frisby's research and development library; product development databases, test reports and intellectual property rights; customer and supplier databases; office and lab equipment; and the Thermasorb® trademark, logo and website. Outlast will continue to serve existing Frisby customers.

"We believe that this acquisition will further enhance our intellectual property, diminish any product confusion in the marketplace and give us access to Frisby's library of test results, data and product development," said Brad Poorman, vice president, Outlast Global.

In related PCM news, ASTM International, West Conshohocken, Pa., has approved a new standard test method for PCMs. Test Method for Steady State and Dynamic Thermal Performance in Textile Materials, D7024, outlines the standard test procedure for measuring the amount of latent energy in textile materials. The test method is based on research and testing by Outlast and Douglas C. Hittle, Ph.D., Colorado State University.
