Outlast will present its proven technology for proactive temperature management (1/8/19)
The future of sleep will be a particular focus at this year’s Heimtextil in the new ‘Smart Bedding‘ hall 11.
Here, at stand C61, Outlast will present the broadest portfolio of solutions for proactive temperature
and moisture regulation based on phase-change materials (PCM).
“While all our solutions aim for a natural, healthier sleep in the own comfort zone, each of our
customer projects require a unique approach. We always seek the product from our Outlast® portfolio
that will best fulfil the requirements of the end use.” says Martin Bentz, managing director of Outlast
Technologies GmbH. Ranging from coated textiles to viscose or polyester fibers as a filling, to foam
spraying — for over two decades manufacturers of mattresses, pillows, comforters, and other home
textiles worldwide have been trusting in Outlast® technology. “Our focus is always a solution that best
supports the brand manufacturer’s product promise and messaging“, Bentz continues. “For this we
constantly work on new, innovative product developments that extend the benefits of smart
temperature regulation by additional values. These values support our customers to attract new buyers
and react on specific market demands.“
The PCM expert has now taken the next step towards more sustainability and presents new products
based on recycled material as the latest additions to the Outlast® portfolio. Constant reduction of the
ecological footprint has always been a focus for technical development. Certifications such as OEKO-
TEX® 100 class 1, resource-friendly dyeing and production processes in accordance with the highest
quality standards are part of the Outlast® technology for many years.
In the new Outlast® products, temperature regulating technology is applied to base material (knitted
fabric or nonwoven) which is produced from 100 % recycled polyester textiles or PET bottles and
therefore meets the Global Recycle Standard (GRS). Further products that use renewable materials for
other components of the technology are planned to expand the portfolio in the near future. With this
initiative towards greater sustainability, Outlast continues to focus on making bedding even smarter.
For bedding products that are targeted to customer segments with an advanced demand for
temperature and moisture regulation, Outlast offers the Xelerate product line. Similar to a ‘distribution
booster’, these fabrics with an additional heat-spreader technology dissipate excess heat much faster
and make the PCM process more active and efficient. These innovations will be particularly interesting
to bedding manufacturers that want to address specific customer groups with an extra plus of
technology. Xelerate products are extremely suitable for bedding products for those that suffer from
hot flushes and night sweat attacks, as they occur e.g. during menopause.
The proven Outlast® technology is also available in new visual variations. To home textile brands, this
offers not only more individuality but also new possibilities to differentiate within the own product
range as well as from their competition. Color variations, for example, could support the marketing of
exclusive bedding programs or help to communicate different product lines.
Overall, Outlast continues its technology promise to make sleeping smarter and more natural. New
ways to combine a high class temperature regulation technology with additional values as an answer to
the latest market demands will be presented to manufacturers of bedding and home textile products at
Heimtextil in Frankfurt/Germany from 8. - 11. January 2019 in Hall 11, Stand C61.
