THERMOLITE® INFRARED Technology

INFRARED technology icon

THERMOLITE® INFRARED technology is an innovative solution that is solar-activated by the sun, or artificial light sources, using a unique blend of near infrared (NIR) yarns with proprietary additives. The yarns absorb the NIR rays to raise the temperature of the garment, while the system’s integrated high-quality insulation traps air and minimizes heat loss.


BENEFITS

  • Solar-activated technology absorbs NIR and raises the temperature of the garment
  • THERMOLITE® INFRARED technology lasts the lifespan of a garment and does not wash off
  • Good Insulation (CLO) levels
  • Quick-drying performance
  • Good Fabric and insulation stability
  • Fabric certification processes help ensure consistent high performance regardless of supply source
