In summer 2011, Swiss knitwear manufacturer ESCHLER presents a new FLASH fabric which utilizes the coldblack® technology by Schoeller. It allows dark textiles to no longer absorb, but reflect heat. Thus, coldblack® reduces heat build-up and provides reliable protection from UV-rays. Further, FLASH is a complex double layer knit with Polyester inside and Polyamide outside combining great moisture management with high abrasion resistance. For a tight, yet comfortable compression fit, ESCHLER adds Elasthane and also integrates carbon fibres for an improved temperature management.

Its complex double layer knit with Polyester on the inside and Polyamide on the outside makes the quality “dry in a flash”, delivers outstanding moisture management and fantastic cooling properties. The Polyamide outer material further guarantees a high abrasion and pilling resistance. For a tight, yet comfortable compression fit, ESCHLER adds Elasthane. And the integrated carbon fibres improve – according to the independent Swiss institute EMPA – the garments thermal regulation. 

For even more high tech, the fabrics now also utilizes coldblack® technology by fellow Swiss company Schoeller. coldblack® reduces heat absorbancy in dark colored textiles and guarantees a high level of UV-protection.
