Burlington Develops Smart Fabric Finishing Application

Burlington WorldWide (BWW), a business unit of the Greensboro, N.C.-based International Textile Group, has partnered with Outlast Technologies Inc., Boulder, Colo., and Switzerland-based Ciba Specialty Chemicals to develop a new patent-pending finishing technology that enables fabric to adjust to changes in temperature without altering the fabrics inherent characteristics.

Smart Fabric technology is based on a proprietary formulation developed by Outlast and Ciba that uses microencapsulated phase-change materials called Thermocules® to absorb and release heat to increase comfort levels.

"The result of this collaborative effort is a smart versatile fabric that provides consumers multiple functions and benefits," said Ken Kunberger, president, BWW. The technology initially will be used with activewear apparel. Menswear, barrier and uniform products will be added soon afterward.
