Australia-based Alexium International Group reports it has signed an agreement with a well-known U.S.-based apparel company for its Alexicool™ environmentally friendly, phase change material that makes fabrics feel cool to the touch. The Alexium technology will feature in more than five brands of inner- and outerwear over the next two years. The apparel company will first work with Alexium to qualify Alexicool for use on more than a dozen fabric types and blends in two U.S.-based plants, and will then expand the program to global production facilities.
“Our new client is a major international player in the apparel industry, and we were able to reach this agreement in just over three months after introducing our products to the company,” said Michael Schwartz, vice president of Sales, Alexium. “Given our extensive knowledge of our award winning chemistries, we are able to customize formulas for a range of different fabrics which meets a key criterion for many customers when dealing with innovative technologies,” Schwartz added.
