What is ‘Outlast’?


Outlast® technology, originally developed for NASA, utilizes phase change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort.  Outlast® technology is comparable to ice in a drink; as it changes from solid to liquid, it absorbs heat and cools the drink, keeping that drink at the desired temperature for longer. Outlast® phase change materials work in the same way, but are microencapsulated to be permanently enclosed and protected in a polymer shell. We call microencapsulated phase change materials Thermocules™.

This encapsulation process makes the Thermocules™ exceptionally durable for many applications. These Thermocules™ can be incorporated into fabrics and fibers and have the capacity to absorb, store and release excess heat.  This gives any product containing Outlast® technology the ability to continually regulate skin’s microclimate. As the skin gets hot, the heat is absorbed, and as it cools, that heat is released.

Experience the Outlast Difference

Outlast® technology enhances textiles by providing the benefit of proactive temperature regulation that manages heat and moisture in many textiles. As a company committed to temperature regulation, Outlast can give you the technology to provide more comfortable solutions to everyday life. When you manage temperature, heat, and moisture your customers can feel “just right”.
