Huntsman Textile Effects has extended its High IQ performance assurance programme to help mills, brands and retailers meet consumer demand for garments with durable moisture management. The new High IQ Cool Comfort performance programme is built on advanced moisture management agents to deliver durable, long-lasting performance. 

As consumers around the world adopt more active lifestyles and outdoor activities, the need for cool, dry and comfortable sports and athleisure wear is on an upward trend.

High IQ Cool Comfort performance programme is designed to allow garments to breathe, while at the same time, transport moisture away from the body. This ensures consumers can stay cool, dry and fresh throughout. The technology supports accelerated evaporation, ensuring garments dry quickly for long-lasting comfort, according to the manufacturer.

“Today’s consumer seeks comfort and performance in their active lifestyle. With Huntsman’s High IQ Cool Comfort performance assurance program, we offer durable moisture management so your garment remains breathable, stays cool and attains the comfort of cotton. Unique quick-dry properties created by the natural microclimate of the garment help to reduce post-exercise chill, making the effects highly suitable for sports and active wear,” said Lee Howarth, Global Marketing Manager, Huntsman Textile Effects.

Supporting reliable mills

Only mills that meet Huntsman’s stringent requirements earn the right to use the High IQ performance assurance hang tags as point-of-sale product branding. Updated hangtags and promotional materials are available to support mills and brands in communicating the benefits of the High IQ Cool Comfort performance assurance programme.
