ThermalTech Announces World’s First Solar Powered Smart Fabric

Revolutionary Technology Harnesses Power of the Sun and Artificial
Light to Warm the Body without Need for Bulky Insulation

Indiegogo Campaign Launches Featuring Six Exciting Outdoor Jackets
Insulated with ThermalTech Fabric

(#thermaltech) today introduced its patented solar powered smart fabric
(#smartfabric). Made from stainless steel yarn, the ThermalTech fabric
is lightweight and gathers energy from the sun or artificial light to
keep the body warm even after the sun has set. Providing warmth without
the bulk found in traditional outerwear apparel, the ThermalTech fabric
allows for a lighter and more fashionable look, even when in the cold
outdoors. The company has launched an Indiegogo (#indiegogo) campaign
for the ThermalTech fabric at
to raise funds to bring jackets with the integrated smart fabric
technology to market. A limited number of Early Bird specials of 50% off
MSRP (on all jackets) will be available for purchase with a full list of
other offers listed on the ThermalTech Indiegogo page.

ThermalTech’s technology takes a proactive approach to warmth. Whereas
most coats and jackets are designed to recycle body heat and slowly warm
a person up, the ThermalTech fabric soaks up energy from indoor and
outdoor light to bring warmth to the wearer within minutes. The fabric’s
technology generates up to 10°C/18°F of heat gathered from the sun or
artificial light in just two minutes, even when it’s cold outside.

The first use of this fabric will be a jacket available in three
different styles for both men and women for use in a variety of outdoor
activities – Street is fashion inspired, offered in dark blue and
green; Explorer is designed for casual, every day use and comes
in light blue and red and Extreme is intended for outdoor sports
and consumers have the choice of black or gray.

The Extreme and Explorer styles are perfect for staying
warm in any outdoor setting or situation: from snowboarding to commuting
to work in the winter. People hitting the slopes will be able to say
goodbye to two to three pounds of weight and bulk without sacrificing
warmth. The Street jacket allows even the most discerning
fashionista to keep warm without compromising their style.

“We believe that by introducing this solar-absorbing fabric into the
apparel marketplace, the next generation of outerwear will provide the
consumer with even more of an optimal temperature & fit,” said Carlos
Cortes, CEO of ThermalTech. “This will allow everyone from the
snowboarder to the fashionista to be warmer in colder climates.”

The ultra-thin stainless steel mesh fabric threads are strong yet
lightweight and breathable, lending to extended lifetime use while
reducing the weight typically found in heat-storing materials added to
most outerwear. The fabric is easily embedded in any clothing style,
from jackets to pants and is machine washable.

“We are very excited to bring this technology to market,” said Fatima
Rocha, Co-founder of ThermalTech. “Our goal is to help people stay warm
in any environment without having to sacrifice fashion and comfort.”
