  • coldblack ® – Sun Reflector – UV Protector
    • The vision which led to this new textile finish was “an
    • invisible shield providing protection from the negative
    • influences of the sun”.
  • coldblack ® – Sun Reflector – UV Protector
    • Dark colors heat up stronger when exposed to direct
    • sunlight compared to light colors.
    • Many textiles worn in the summertime or exposed to the sun
    • offer poor protection from damaging UV rays.
    • coldblack ® offers double sun protection. The technology
    • reduces heat build-up in textiles and provides reliable
    • protection from UV rays.

  • coldblack ® – Sun Reflector – UV Protector
    • coldblack ® combines two functions in one special finishing
    • technology for textiles:
            • Sun Reflector
            • UV Protector

  • coldblack ® – Sun Reflector
    • Effective Heat Management
    • Light colored textiles reflect both visible and invisible rays of sunlight, meaning both heat and light.
    • Dark colored textiles absorb both types of rays and therefore absorb heat.
    • coldblack ® reduces this absorption of heat rays particularly in the case of darker colors and in all types of textiles.
    • The result is tangibly better heat management.
  • coldblack ® – Effective Heat Management
    • without coldblack ®
    • Dark textiles without coldblack ® absorb heat
  • coldblack ® – Effective Heat Management
    • With coldblack ®
    • Dark textiles with coldblack ® reflect heat
  • coldblack ® – UV Protector
    • Reliable Protection from UV Rays
    • Many textiles worn in the summertime or exposed to the sun offer poor protection from damaging UV rays.
    • The coldblack ® technology guarantees a minimum UPF 30 protection when applied to any textile* in any color without affecting the look or feel of the product.
    • The UV protection factor (UPF) gives an indication of how much longer someone using coldblack ® textiles can remain in the sun without incurring any skin damage. The calculations were based on the “self-protection time” of the skin, which varies according to individual skin type.
    • * Important: The UPF value can vary depending on structure, thickness and material. It relates to closed textile surfaces. For this reason, the UPF factor needs to be determined on the different textiles. From a minimum of UPF 30, coldblack ® conformity is guaranteed.
  • Skin types with varying degrees of self-protection
    • Type 1 Very fair skin, extremely sensitive Sunburn risk in high summer Freckles midday after approx. 10 minutes
    • Light colored eyes, reddish blond hair
    • Type 2 Fair skin Sunburn risk in high summer
    • Often freckled midday after approx. 20 minutes
    • Light colored eyes, fair hair
    • Type 3 Medium fair skin Sunburn risk in high summer Light or dark colored eyes midday after approx. 30 minutes
    • Brown hair
    • Type 4 Darker less sensitive skin Sunburn risk in high summer
    • Dark eyes midday after approx. 45 minutes
    • Dark brown or black hair
    • Type 5 Dark, less sensitive skin Sunburn risk in high summer
    • Dark eyes midday after approx. 60 minutes
    • Black hair
    • Type 6 Black, less sensitive skin Sunburn risk in high summer
    • Dark eyes midday after approx. 90 minutes
    • Black hair

  • coldblack ® – Practical examples 30 x 90 min = 2700 min = approx. 45 h until skin reddens Type 6 30 x 60 min = 1800 min = approx. 30 h until skin reddens Type 5 30 x 45 min = 1350 min = approx. 22.5 h until skin reddens Type 4 30 x 30 min = 900 min = approx. 15 h until skin reddens Type 3 30 x 20 min = 600 min = approx. 10 h until skin reddens Type 2 30 x 10 min = 300 min = approx. 5 h until skin reddens Type 1 Protection with coldblack ® textiles (UPF 30) UPF x self-protection of skin Skin type
  • coldblack ® – Reliable Protection from UV Rays
    • Without coldblack ®
    • Light colored textiles without coldblack ®
    • allow UV-rays to penetrate
  • coldblack ® – Reliable Protection from UV Rays
    • With coldblack ®
    • Light colored textiles with coldblack ®
    • significantly reduce UV-rays from penetration
  • Examples for UV protection measures and their UV protection factors Many textiles equipped with coldblack ® demonstrate a UV protection factor of over UPF 50. approx. 5 Shade under a sun umbrella without special UV protection approx. 10 Shade under a tree approx. 10 Light cotton clothing 0 to 30 Sun cream with correct application approx. 20 Thick cotton clothing without coldblack ® minimum 30 Textiles with coldblack ® UV protection factor UV protection measures
  • coldblack ® – advantages
    • Optimal protection from heating up due to sunlight
    • Textiles stay cool to the touch
    • Reliable protection from UV rays (minimum UPF 30)
  • coldblack ® – advantages
    • Optimal protection from heating up due to sunlight
    Because textiles finished with coldblack ® heat up less in all colors compared to textiles without a coldblack ® finish.
  • coldblack ® – advantages
    • Textiles stay cool to the touch
    When applied to clothing this means that the wearer perspires less, feels better and is therefore capable of greater performance.
  • coldblack ® – advantages
    • Reliable protection from UV rays (minimum UPF 30)
    Protection from UV-A and UV-B rays. UV-A rays accelerate the aging of the skin. UV-B rays cause a pigment change that result in long term browning. Without effective UPF protection (Ultraviolet Protection Factor), aggressive oxygen molecules are released causing sunburn or can lead to the formation of melanoma.
  • coldblack ® – tested on the sweating torso
    • coldblack ® performances tested on the sweating torso
    • The capacity of coldblack ® to reflect infrared heat rays can be determined precisely and measured in the laboratory.
    • The Empa in St. Gallen (www.empa.ch) has measuring methods using a sweating torso.
    • Heat management on the textile surface and the effects on the human body were tested using three different polo shirts. (1x beige, 1x black without coldblack ® , 1x black with coldblack ® ).
  • coldblack ® – tested on the sweating torso
    • The torso simulates the human body
    • The individual layers of material replicate the layers of human skin and display properties similar to human skin in terms of heat capacity and heat conducting.

  • coldblack ® – significant heat difference
    • Measurement without simulated sweating
    • When exposed to simulated sunlight (infrared lamp) the black coldblack ® polo shirt displayed a temperature increase of the torso which is approx. 5 °C (9 °F) lower than that of the non-treated black shirt.
    Empa Test Report Nr. 448807 of 26. March, 2008)
  • coldblack ® – significant heat difference
    • Measurement without simulated sweating
    • The temperature measured on the outside of the samples displayed a result similar
    • to that of the torso surface temperature. Both the beige and black coldblack ® -finished shirt show an approx. 12 °C (21.6 °F) lower surface temperature than the black, non-treated shirt.
    Empa Test Report Nr. 448807 of 26. March, 2008)
  • coldblack ® – significant heat difference
    • Measurement with simulated sweating
    • As perspiration works to cool skin, the wearer of a coldblack ® shirt only perspires about half as
    • much as the wearer of a conventional black T-shirt.
    (Empa Test Report No. 449906 of 28. July, 2008)
  • coldblack ® – tested with free hanging samples
    • Test assembly with free hanging samples
    Empa Test Report Nr. 448476 from 12. February 2008
  • coldblack ® – significant heat difference In the case of the freehanging materials Empa measured a temperature difference of approx. 30°C (54°F). Empa Test Report Nr. 448476 from 12. February 2008
