>> How to implement the TFL Cool System®
In order to take full advantage of the temperature reducing properties of TFL Cool Technology it is mandatory to use both the special SELLA® cool dyes for dyeing the leather crust and the RODA® cool Pigments for the finishing coat. Partial replacement of cool colours and pigments by regular counterparts can reduce or even fully destroy the performance of TFL Cool Technology.
>> How can we make sure a leather is cool?
On the basis of an ASTM procedure TFL has developed a practical test method, TFL/cool-01, using a special spectrophotometer working in the critical NIR range. The method employs a special measuring device linked to a PC. The measurement itself is fast, taking just a couple of minutes to determine the % reflection at 900 nm. By definition a reflection of 60% or more gives cool leather with a temperature significantly different from the environment.
>> Intellectual property rights
TFL developed the cool technology for leather together with IPS. IPS owns the worldwide patents in major industrial countries and has granted TFL the exclusive rights for marketing this technology. Customers utilizing TFL´s special SELLA cool and RODA cool pigments the user are automatically licensed to use this unique technology.
TFL Cool System® is a registered or filed trademark owned by TFL in most countries. Cool is a patented technology.
