The Properties of “Cooling” Gel:
All gel material has a cool to touch characteristic due to the nature of the chemistry. The degree or coolness varies by product and will also depend on other ancillary characteristics of the product, such as ventilation (holes) for more air flow or cooling fabrics used on the covers.
Although gel products (i.e.: gel memory foam, gel overlay, gel glaze, etc.) are classified as a cooler material, sleep temperature varies by the individual and the coolness is very subjective to the user. Using a sheet set with a high thread count (greater than 250 TC) will diminish the cooling properties. We suggest using a low thread count sheet set on any product that has cooling properties.
