SUPERHYDROPHILIC + OLEOPHOBIC ULTRA-THIN COATING
Textile Shield is a revolutionary non-toxic super-hydrophobic and oleophobic Durable Water Repellent finish (DWR). Textile Shield is breathable, bio-compatible, completely inert and water-based. In laboratory testing, our textile coating achieved 150+ degree super-hydrophobic contact angles on natural and synthetic textiles. In addition, Textile Shield is resistant to harsh detergents and demonstrates excellent self-cleaning properties with continuous performance over 30 washes. Textile Shield is only 100-150 nm in thick (approximately 800 times thinner than a human hair). Textile Shield can be applied to fabrics such as: Cotton, Canvas, Suede/Leather Corduroy, Flannel, Poplin, Sailcloth, Sateen, Terry Cloth, Wool, Linen, Fleece or to synthetic textiles such as: Nylon, Polyester, Microfiber, Acetate, Acrylic, Rayon, Poly blends, Olefin, Polypropylene, Spandex, and many more.
For performance testing, we use the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) Method 22-2010 – Water Repellency Spray Test. On cotton fabric, Textile Shield received a perfect initial score of 100 (indicating no wetting or sticking) and 85 after 30 washes.
Protection of fibers from the infiltration of dirt
Invisible to the human eye
Simple spray application (trigger sprayer included)
Washing and cleaning agent resistance
Lasts up to 30 washes
Where to use:
Textile Shield is a water-based and non-toxic superhydrophobic nanocoating that is breathable, biocompatible, completely-inert and food safe.
It has been laboratory-tested to achieve 150 degree superhydrophobic contact angles on natural and synthetic textiles and is only 100-150 nm thick.
Textile Shield can be applied onto a natural and synthetic textile by means of a transparent spray or dip coating.
Prior to application of Textile Shield, the textile must be dry and completely free of all contaminants including detergents and fabric softeners.
Textile Shield can be applied to cotton, suede, canvas, corduroy, flannel, wool, silk, linen, and polyester.
When applied to a textile surface, Textile Shield will cure and completely adhere to the surface after 24 hours. At this point, it will make the surface completely hydrophobic and resistant to dirt and other contaminants.
30-400 mL per m2 (range depends on the absorbency of the material)
Textile Shield is washing and cleaning agent resistant and is able to last up to 30 washes. It is also resistant to temperature change.
Textile Shield has a 2-year unopened shelf-life when stored between 3ºC and 30ºC
Without Crosslinker – Less durability
With Crosslinker – Increases durability, but decreases oleophobicity (not a fluorinated product)
