Technology Overview - Phase Change Material
Phase Change Material or PCM is a non-toxic chemical that freezes at 58F and stays at that temperature for 2-3 hrs. It works by absorbing heat away from the body. It is not a cold vest, it is a cool vest, and is designed to keep the user cool and comfortable, not cold. You can keep a PCM cooling insert pressed against your skin and there is no discomfort. There is no ice burn, condensation or fluctuating temperatures with PCM, like you would have with an ice vest. PCM is not water based, it is a carbon based liquid and it is 25% lighter than water.
Commonly used under military combat gear, hazardous materials suits, mascot costumes, and other apparel.
Provide cooling comfort and heat stress protection in high temperature environments.
