|Revolutionary RPCM® Cooling Vest Maintains 59°F Degrees for Hours…
MELBOURNE, FL — A revolutionary new cooling vest has achieved patent pending status by Glacier Tek, Inc., a Florida company. Using RPCM®, a Renewable Phase Change Material that is completely biodegradable and contains no hazardous materials, this unique RPCM® Cool Vest incorporates a non-toxic, biodegradable phase change material that freezes at a cool, but not cold, 59°F. “In a market place that includes numerous body cooling options using virtually identical petroleum-based PCM technology,” said Ray Booska, Glacier Tek’s Vice President, “we have introduced an environmentally responsible product that differs from every other phase change cooling vest. Our RPCM Cool Vests use a completely non-toxic, bio-based product that contains no hazardous chemicals like all the old-style hydrocarbon-based PCM’s do.”
RPCM® Cool Vests are unique in that they are the first PCM products for cooling the body ever produced that are completely harmless to people, animals, and the environment. “Nobody else can honestly say that,” said Booska. Glacier Tek’s RPCM® CoolVest maintains a dry, comfortable 59°F temperature for up to 2 1/2 hours in high temperature environments. The unique and patent pending RPCM™ CoolVest, a body cooling garment produced exclusively by Glacier Tek, Inc. uses a renewable, agriculturally-based phase change material (RPCM) that outperforms traditional hydrocarbon-based PCM’s. “Our exclusive RPCM® Cool Vest is about 10 times less toxic than ordinary table salt and biodegrades faster than sugar, ” Booska said.
Weighing about 4 lbs., the RPCM® Cool Vests are comfortable and easy to use. The RPCM™ Cool Packs can recharge in about 20 minutes in icewater or a freezer and last up to 2½ hours in a 100°F environment. There are a variety of styles for military, industrial, recreational, and general safety use. The new RPCM® CoolVests are a shot in the arm for the suffering US farming industry, explained Booska. “This gives American farmers another cash crop to help support their families in these times when more and more agricultural products are being imported from overseas.” For more information, call (800) 482-0533.
