Outlast Technologies LLC was founded in 1990 and is headquartered in Golden, Colorado, with operations across Heidenheim/Germany and Hong Kong. Originally designed for NASA to protect astronauts from temperature fluctuations in space, Outlast® technology carries the Certified Space Technology™ seal. A leader around phase change materials, Outlast® offers hundreds of commercialized materials containing Outlast® technology, and has partnered with over 300 companies in bedding, outdoor sports, apparel and footwear. Not content to be confined to these more traditional applications, Outlast is also actively exploring home furnishings, military, medical, electronics and other markets.
There are tens of thousands of finished products that could be improved by the added benefit of heat management and moisture reduction.
Outlast® technology, with its many applications, can be incorporated into raw materials, fibers, yarns, knits and woven fabrics.
In Outlast® products, the technology absorbs and stores excess heat and then releases it to help prevent disturbances caused by being too hot or too cold. Compared to other performance materials that manage moisture merely by wicking and pulling sweat away, Outlast® technology proactively manages the humidity by controlling the production of sweat before it begins.
Outlast® can help reduce unpleasant temperature changes in a wide variety of applications. You can find Outlast® technology in bedding, for example in mattress pads, protectors, pillows, comforters and sheets or sleeping bags.
