WATER AND STAIN REPELLENCY!

Classic fluorocarbon are being used on textiles in order to repel liquids and stains. To be performant, those linear chains of 6 or 8 carbons (C6 - C8) needs orientation. Although they are efficient after the application process, classic fluorocarbons have different disadvantages.

CLASSIC FLUOROCARBON/ SOME LIMITATIONS

During production the requested orientation of the C6 and C8 chains occur at high temperatures, which can cause shrinkage of sensitive fibers and problems of discoloration. However, one of the biggest disadvantages of the classic fluorocarbons is that once a stain goes through the fluoro chains, the stain becomes very hard to remove.
 
Rubbing the stain makes it even worse as it destroys the performance of the classic fluorocarbons. Also important to note is that after washing the repellency needs to be reactivated by tumble drying or ironing. Last but not least, classic fluorocarbon are in a negative daylight when it comes to environmental impact as they contain PFOA or PFOS.
 
 
 

NEW PATENTED TECHNOLOGY FOR ACHEIVING STAIN RELEASE PROPERTIES

 

Today, the market is very focused on water and oil repellency. Easy to measure through existing standards, repellency is in most cases not the effect that consumers are looking for.

Devan Chemicals has developed a new product eco release® that is based on fluoro, but not in the form of C6 or C8. eco release® is free of PFOA and PFOS and the application doesn’t require high curing temperature thus maintaining soft handle and the aspect of delicate textiles.
 
eco release® is an easy care finish as it maintains its stain release performance after washing without tumble drying or ironing. Rubbing the stain will not decrease the performance.
