DEARFOAMS NEW MICROWAVE-HEATED BACK WARMER, WITH MICROCORE: SOOTHES YOUR BACK FOR HOURS AFTER JUST MINUTES IN THE MICROWAVE!
PICKERINGTON, Ohio, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine the benefits of a comforting heating pad without the inconvenience of short electrical cords and outlets. Imagine microwaving a heating pad, strapping it on and enjoying its comfort for hours, wherever you may go. The new Dearfoams(R) Back Warmer with MICROCORE(TM) is a microwaveable heating pad that allows the user freedom of movement while providing long-lasting, soothing warmth. Retail price: $25.00. Microwave the Back Warmer's removable MICROCORE(TM) energy pack for just 3 minutes, insert it into the fabric pouch, and you'll have a Back Warmer that will give you up to 4 hours of portable warmth. The Back Warmer straps around your waist, so you can continue all your normal activities while receiving its benefits. And the Dearfoams(R) Back Warmer can be reheated again and again for use whenever you want the comfort and convenience of a portable heating pad. This unique thermal technology is both environmentally safe and safe for consumers. The fabric pouch of the Dearfoams(R) Back Warmer with MICROCORE(TM) is made of a soft, comfortable, knit material and is machine washable. The MICROCORE(TM) energy pack in the Dearfoams(R) Back Warmer utilizes new and unique thermal transfer technology and is patent pending. At room temperature, the energy pack's material is a semi-solid polymer. When microwaved, the energy is absorbed by the pack, and the semi-solid material changes into a liquid. In physics this is termed a phase change, and the energy required for this change from solid to liquid (and then again from liquid to solid) explains why you can energize the park in a quick 3 minutes and yet radiate the same energy for a leisurely 4 hours. MICROCORE(TM) was developed jointly by R.G. Barry Corporation (AMEX: RGB), the world's largest manufacturer of soft, washable slippers and footwear for at- and around-the-home wear, and Battelle, an international research and development organization with a distinguished record in technology and product development. A toll free Consumer Service hotline (1-800-808-6363) is included with the instructions for use. This hotline is available to consumers for any questions or comments about their new Microwave-Heated Back Warmer by Dearfoams(R). In addition to the Back Warmer, Dearfoams(R) new line of microwave-heated products includes a Seat Cushion, Earmuffs, Scarf, Hand Warmer and Bread Warmer. These products are all available nationally in major department stores. -0- 11/29/94 /NOTE TO EDITORS: Photo accompanying this release moved on AP PhotoExpress Network today -- see photo No. PRN3.
