Cooler Bars Product Introduction Developed by Mr.
Boris Branwhite in 1992 - 93 during his research in U.S.A. and Australia on
various applications of Polymers including soil stabilization, water and
fertilizer retention, and re-establishment of vegetation in arid zones and
desert. During his research with Phillips 66, Boris discovered that one of the
polymers absorbed only pure H2o and no other substances. Absorbing only H2o and
not fertilizers would not be beneficial for agricultural purposes. Boris, always
thinking, recalled a WWI fact -
During WWI one of the many Womens Leagues in Australia created
and developed an idea that would keep their sons and soldiers cool while
fighting in Europe. By taking wheat berries and sewing them into cloth in tube
like shapes small enough to use as wrist bands. The idea being that one would
soak the wrist band in water allowing the wheat berries to absorb the fluid.
Then once placed on the wrist it would keep cooling as long as the wheat berries
Boris with help took the H2o absorbing polymer, created a test neck band. Upon
further testing of materials and polymer quantity, Boris created a high
performance personal neck cooler. Establishing our first COOLER BAR.
Cooler Bars Product Information Cooler Bars are made with the highest
quality Super absorbent polyacrylamide crystal, which absorbs only pure H2o. Not

and has the most wicking properties, giving Cooler Bars greater cooling
properties compared to similar products on the market. The product is triple
stitched to ensure strength.
