ADVANSA Unveils Thermo° Cool™ Fiber

Polyester fiber and yarn manufacturer Advansa, the Netherlands, has introduced ADVANSA Thermo°
Cool™ to the US market. The fiber, made from a hybrid blend, is designed for performance sports
apparel and footwear. Its thermoregulation properties and hollow interior enable it to wick
moisture away from the wearer in hot weather, enhancing air circulation and cooling; as well as
retain body heat and protect against quick temperature changes in cold weather.

Advansa also offers its new fiber in an ECO variant, which uses a polymer made from renewable
resources rather than petrochemical derivatives.
