For use in temperatures above 25°C and any humidity level. High humidity and/or outside ventilation do not adversely affect vest effectiveness.
IZI BodyCooling.com is the only brand in the world providing Flexible PCM©. Flexible PCM© is unique by containing just salt and water. You can choose between 24°C or 30°C pads. Both come in 2 cooling durations; 150 gram pads lasting up to 2 hours or 250 gram pads lasting up to 4 hours. A vest contains 8 pockets to store our Flexible PCM© pads for a maximum of 4 hours of body cooling. After 4 hours the pads can be reactivated by storing them in a <20°C area (typically overnight, or for at least 8 hours). Pad reactivation may be accelerated by placing them in a fridge or freezer (typically 2-4 hours).
Flexibility: The principle behind our IZI BodyCooling.com Flexible PCM© is absorbing and desorbing water to salt. Due to our proprietary composition, Flexible PCM© remains just that: flexible. Therefore, Flexible PCM© vests are more comfortable to wear over a longer period of time than any (plant)oil-based PCM product.
Safety: The combination of water and salt in our Flexible PCM© pads provides the highest standard of safety in terms of flame retardancy. Nearly all competitor PCM products on the market are (plant)oil-based and will solidify into a highly flammable hard block. Competitor pads do not meet any FR safety regulations. Plantoil-based PCM offers somewhat better FR safety than purely oil-based PCM, yet remains highly flammable. Our Flexible PCM© is inflammable.
Activation: Flexible PCM© pads self-activate automatically in a < 20C environment. No fridge-driven forced cooling required, which is good for the environment.
In urgent situations fridge-accelerated cooling may be applied; this will not damage your Flexible PCM© product.
Maintenance: Flexible PCM© pads can be washed by hand with soap. The Flexible PCM© vest itself can be machine washed according to the supplied washing instructions.
What to choose: IZI BodyCooling.com provides 4 different Flexible PCM pads for different circumstances in terms of required timespan and temperature reduction. You can choose from 30°C and 24°C pads for up to 2 hours (150 grams) or up to 4 hours (250 grams) of body cooling. The PCM pads come in sets of 8 pcs, so you can choose your personal preferred cooling intensity and positioning of the pads. PCM vests contains 8 pockets to store the pads at your personal preference. Vests and pad sets can be purchased separately.
