AQUACHILL is an acrylic, water-based coating with no volatile organic compounds or odor that is easily applied to flexible foams in consumer and bedding applications, delivering comfort through best-in-class thermal management, softness, feel and durability. The innovation offers a controlled, intentional, calm cooling experience that regenerates for every night’s sleep cycle. Many cooling products for bedding contain gel pads, gel infused foams or thermal additive based coatings. Other products are solvent-based to ease processing, but, release a strong odor, leading to unsatisfied customers. Additionally, it is always a challenge to have one product solution that can provide prolonged coolness, softness and durability. AQUACHILL represents a multidisciplinary innovation that overcomes these obstacles.
