Zentek started with a small niche market in 2007, to see what could be accomplished with phase change technology.Starting with a niche market of professional dog owners, they developed two phase cooling, that is used in all seasons. They emphasized the cooling with the addition of cooling packs for summer months. They still manage to keep the garments, now for both humans and canines, lightweight. because of their years of fitting experience, they are also designed, understanding comfort while working, even in extreme conditions, or sports. This layering of technical fabrics and cooling science is the most sophisticated we've seen... definitely in the higher end Pet market and Industrial products.
They now have expanded to home goods.. mattress pads, and pillow cases. Industrial workers are using the Industrial Vests in construction and even under hazard suits in high humidity and temperatures, inside of ships.
As our climate is more erratic, their products are insurance for comfort and safety. We like their thoughtful and original designs.

The Zentek cool coat that has been used by the professional dog handlers and sporting dog owners since 2007., is now selling to pet owners. Beside keeping their dogs from overheating, their use of phase change materials, instead of water, also provides for better blood flow to the extremeties . A phase change material is [...]
More people are using the Zentek mats as emergency blankets in their cars. originally designed for dogs in crates, owners found the benefits of packing a mat to protect children, pets or themselves from the temperature extremes .
Zentek is pleased to annouce that Zentek products will now be available in Japan at Dog Agility Events . It is being sold by Atsuko Nagaseki, one of the top agility performers in the country.
Now thermal imaging is on the Zentek web site, showing what everyone has been experiencing wearing the vests. The first image shows a man pressing his hand against the vest and the resulting heat absorption. This happens in only 10- 20 seconds. The second set show the model slowly waving the vest in the air [...]
