3-DIMENSIONAL KNIT SPACER FABRIC is the Alternative to Neoprene
Koolflex is a light, cool and comfortable product constructed of a poly-nylon core with a poly-spandex blend outer cover, which enhances airflow. This light weight, open cell structure allows air to pass easily through the material. With Koolflex's unique knitting construction, perspiration is wicked from the side next to the body to the outside layer of the fabric where it is evaporated, thus retarding bacterial growth. There are no known dermatological problems associated with this material, as there is no crude oil latex used in the manufacturing of Koolflex. This material also has adequate stretch and memory for a better fit.
New Options Sportsadds even more quality to this material by finishing the products using an elastic bias tape border around the outer edges, which prevents the material from fraying, but does not compromise the stretch and memory of the material
Koolflex is not a replacement for neoprene. Neoprene will give more compression and warmth because of cell structure. Koolflex is a great alternative to neoprene for people who have to wear supports for long periods of time, or that have heat or allergy tissues with neoprene.
