Neck Tie Coolers and Cool Hats are always investigating the best personal cooling products to help your body lessen the impact of environmental heat conditions. Our latest personal cooling products are unparalleled because they rely on the unique properties of HTF Exotherm® to absorb heat as needed. Whilst these products may seem expensive initially, they are a once only purchase, as they will work to keep you cool and stress-free forever.
Each personal cooling product contains HTF Exotherm® cooling cells which absorb heat only within the temperature range that is optimal for their specific application. A charged HTF Exotherm® cell is never too cold - it's always "just right."
They are easy to use, with an unlimited life-span and recharged simply. The durability of these products makes the accidental rupture of a HTF Exotherm® cell nearly impossible.
HTF Exotherm® heat transfer technology cooling products stand alone in delivering convenient, self-sufficient, mobile thermal management solutions. This means you can be confident in safe, lifelong cooling with our latest products which we are importing from America for you.
HTF Exotherm®(Heat Transfer Formula Exotherm) is a propriety cooling technology. It is the latest cooling technology specifically designed to provide comfort and heat stress protection in high temperature environments.
HTF Exotherm®, encapsulated in various shaped packs, dependent on their specific use, makes a phase change in minutes from a liquid to a semi-solid, white waxy form and releases long-lasting, temperature specific cooling relief.
The cool UniPaks can be re-energized thousands of times by simply submerging in ice and water. HTF Exotherm® is non-toxic, non-flammable, durable, lighter than water and does not produce condensation.
HTF Exotherm® will not transfer electrical energy and can be used safely with all electronic equipment.
Unlike common PCM's, HTF Exotherm® is an organic compound that is so non-toxic and non-reactive that the FDA in America, where the products are made under a proprietary formula, has certified it as safe for skin and organ contact.
HTF Exotherm® is made from readily available, organically derived hydrocarbons.
Unlike the extremely cold temperatures of ice, the higher temperature formulation of HTF Exotherm® in our products works in harmony with your body. The cooling performance is not impacted by humidity or outside temperature.
HTF Exotherm® is self-regulating. It only absorbs the amount of heat needed to maintain therapeutic cooling temperatures. HTF Exotherm® completely eliminates the risk of frostbite caused by prolonged or direct exposure to ice packs.
In short, HTF Exotherm® technology maintains therapeutic cooling temperatures over longer periods without over-cooling. It works as a "heat sink" effectively wicking off excess body heat, enhancing alertness and energy over 22%, eliminating heat fatigue and reducing dehydration.
This technology performs exceptionally well when an individual increases his/her thermal burden by wearing additional protective safety apparel such as chemical protective suits, fire retardant over garments and other protective apparel required to perform a task or job safely.
In fact, Cool Zone Personal Cooling Vests are ideal in enhancing the performance and well being of workers in a wide range of applications inside a broad group of industries, from warehouses to construction, landscaping, roofing, roadwork, metal working, welding, paint shops, fire rescue and more.
These same Personal Cooling Vests can also be used to provide heat relief doing yard or other work, while relaxing outdoors, at sport events and ball games, or just about any other outdoor activity. Cool Zone Personal Cooling is also recognized as offering benefits for those with difficulty regulating their body temperature due to age or physical issues. These include older persons, children, as well, as those with MS.

HTF Exotherm® was originally, specifically, designed to meet the requirements of military, law enforcement and government HAZMAT/WMD responders. Most important, HTF Exotherm® is the "original Exotherm-type phase-change" technology developed for personal body cooling in the early '90s and today, remains the only technology that has successfully undergone rigorous field and instrumented testing by both military test & evaluation agencies and users. In every instance HTF Exotherm® has proved its capability, superior benefits and value!
The objective of HTF Exotherm® was to provide a simple, passive method of maintaining thermal regulation for personnel with high activity or wearing body armor and other protective apparel in hot climates, including hot-dry and hot-humid conditions. It also needed to be simple and effective in cooling the body.
The Head & Helmet Cooling Pads, containing HTF Exotherm®, energize in minutes from a liquid to a semi-solid, white waxy form and maintain their preset constant temperature of ˜55°F through-out their energized cooling cycle of about 1 hour. To recharge simply submerge the pad in ice water.
How do they work?
As the human body expels heat in order to maintain thermal regulation, the body increases blood flow to the peripheral skin areas of the body and head.
The head becomes a "radiator" and a primary area where heat is expelled from the body.
The HTF Exotherm® filled Head & Helmet Cooling Pads work the opposite of ice. Ice products are too cold for most biological applications, as applying ice to skin quickly results in vasoconstriction and vastly reduced capillary blood flow. The preset temperature of the Head & Helmet Cooling Pads does not deliver the cold sensation one expects to feel. Rather, their higher temperature absorbs excess heat that builds up within a helmet, hardhat or other headgear. The higher temperature of the HTF Exotherm® in the Head & Helmet Cooler provides longevity for the wearer, yet does not produce condensation on the head and face, as would a much colder device.
The purpose of the HTF Exotherm® filled Head & Helmet Cooling Pads are two-fold.
- By absorbing excess heat that builds up within headgear, the inside headgear temperature is reduced by 20 - 25 degrees or more, depending upon the situation.
- This substantially reduced temperature enables the head to expel more heat and accelerates the body's ability to naturally cool itself.
When energized, the Head & Helmet Cooling Pad will not feel "cold" to the fingers. This is because the tactile senses in fingertips are not as temperature sensitive, as is our neck or face, under the arms, or on the chest. Despite the fact that the Head & Helmet Cooling Pad, containing HTF Exotherm®, does not feel cool to the touch, it works hard at keeping the head cool and keeping you in the cool zone.
Head & Helmet Cooling Pads fit into any cap, hard hat, or helmet. They are attached by the Velcro strips. They recharge in 5 minutes in ice and water.
If you are a miner, outside worker, prospector, sports person, cyclist, motor bike rider, you will stay more alert and cooler longer using the latest in our personal cooling products.
Forehead Cooling Pads are a one of purchase that will put you fast into the cool zone forever. They are actually a single, flexible HTF Exotherm®cooling cell. The cell is covered in an easy to clean polymer surface which is hygienic and does not absorb any sweat or odors.
The Forehead Cooling Pad is tucked into the front of a ball cap and held in place by the fabric brim. It rests against your forehead applying cooling relief directly to your forehead, helping to keep you cool and comfortable.
It will remain charged in temperatures below 26C.
Amazingly, it will charge and recharge in 2-3 minutes in a fridge or submerge the pad in ice and water for a speedy recharge.
This amazingly cool ball cap cooler is completely reusable forever. The temperature regulated HTF Exotherm® in its cooling cells absorbs heat, keeping sports players, umpires, tennis and cricket fans, outdoor workers, gardeners, golfers, cyclists, bowlers, fishermen, equestrians, people suffering from MS..... and anyone feeling the heat, comfortable on the hottest of days.
This forehead cap cooler is very versatile and will fit into all types of hats and head protective gear which has a fabric brim to hold it in place against the forehead.
It can be used in conjunction with the Head & Helmet Cooling Pad, and Neck Tie Coolers to help you stop overheating on a hot day. If you are more comfortable during a hot summer day, you will be able to focus and concentrate better. Using the Forehead Cooling Pads will easily bring a new level of comfort to outdoor activities from dog competitions to sports, hiking or even yard work.

The hot weather can be a time of risk for babies because they are easily affected by the heat. It is important to keep them from getting overheated. They rely on others to control their environment. Remember babies can overheat very quickly in cars. Babies and young children should not be left in a parked car on warm or hot days.
Babies love to crawl around, so when sitting in their car seat, they can become unruly. This is especially true if the car seat is making your infant hot. Ensuring your precious bundle is not overheated every time they are placed in the car can make for a much more comfortable trip. Your baby will be happier, more peaceful and less resistant to getting in their car seat if they're kept cool.
The Baby Seat Koolie, a cooling pad for your baby in your car or in their stroller, is just the right temperature to comfortably absorb your child's excess body heat and reduce the health risks of excess heat exposure on infants and small children. It resembles Goldie Locks' Porridge… it's not too cold…it's not too hot. It is just right.
Just place the Baby Car Seat Koolie into the child restraining device in your car, or into your pram. Baby Koolie is not cold like ice. Baby Koolie is a single HTF Exotherm® cooling cell which slips into an outer pack. Baby Koolie's optimum cooling temperature will deliver optimum cooling to your child. Whilst the cooling cell is white, it is working.
To charge, remove from the carrier pack, submerge into ice and water for a few minutes or it charges in approximately 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Baby Koolie is also terrific for helping reduce fevers when your child is sick. Simply get them to lie on it.
You can even lend it to Dad to take to the cricket to sit on. It makes a fabulous cooling seat pad for adults as well.
Buying a Baby Seat Cooling Pad is a wise investment that will keep you cool for many years to come.
