In comparison to light colours, dark colours absorb more heat in direct sunlight. The heat absorption can be reduced to a minimum with Coldblack®, the UVA- and UVB-protection textile finish from Schoeller Technologies. Coldblack® reduces heat build-up and provides reliable protection from the sun’s rays. Consequently, the wear comfort of textiles can be noticeably improved.

Dark-coloured textiles absorb both visible and invisible sunlight, meaning both heat and light. In all types of textiles, Coldblack® reduces this absorption of thermal radiation. This function is particularly effective in the case of darker colours. The result is a noticeably better heat management.



 

In addition, the technologies offer reliable protection from UV rays, which is particularly important for light-coloured textiles. A UPF of 30 (minimum) is guaranteed for all colours and textiles, without the feel or look of the product being affected. As a result, textiles with Coldblack® can make an effective contribution to protecting against harmful UV rays.
