DURABLE WATER REPELLENT

With an depth knowledge of surface tension technologies, Devan has developed a novel super-hydrophobic finish for textiles. Inspired by nature, we have engineered a durable water repellent finish free of fluorocarbon. Unlike fluorine based products, the application does not require high curing temperature’. This gives new opportunities to brands and retailers to make luxurious fabrics water repellent.
