HIGH-PERFORMANCE FORMULATIONS

Textiles are our specialty. Our protective coatings are a brand new fluorochemical-free liquid repellent treatment for a wide-array of textile surfaces. We work with industrial partners worldwide to provide powerful PFAS-free coatings which are designed to offer liquid-repellency, stain-resistance, fade-resistant, mildew-resistance, and more without losing softness or breathability.

ENHANCE THE VERSATILITY OF YOUR TEXTILES

DetraPel can add water-repellent and stain-resistance properties to your fabrics at the factory.  Unlike most factory-applied treatments, DetraPel is water-based, does not require heat curing, a special vapor process, or ventilation systems.  This makes DetraPel a low-cost, low-liability addition to your existing manufacturing process.

PROVEN PERFORMANCE

DetraPel’s protective coatings repel liquid and blocks stains unlike any other coating. Repellency tests can measure resistance of fabrics to wetting by water. ASTM testing protocols measure the angle of contact and rolloff resistance to a single water droplet. DetraPel exceeds industry standard levels on many fabrics, making it one of the only superhydrophobic coatings that does not contain fluorochemicals.

TEXTILE FINISHES INSPIRED BY NATURE

The revolutionary nanotechnology behind DetraPel is based on the ‘Lotus Effect’. This refers to the water repellency exhibited by superhydrophobic lotus leaves. Lotus leaves have waxy microstructures called “papillae” that do not allow water droplets to settle onto their surface, causing them to bead up and roll right off.
