Textile Impregnation


Principle

Transparent, inorganic-organic matrix composite with hydrophobic end groups in aqueous medium
Chemical nanotechnology
Dense, transparent inorganic-organic matrix composite



Product properties

Dramatic reduction in absorption of water and oil (beading up and rolling off)
High degree of resistance against acids and bases
Simple application e.g. by spraying, dipping etc. and subsequent thermal drying
transparent
Good adhesion on the substrate without difficult pretreatment
Reduction of the soiling behaviour of discolouring substances (including soot, coffee and red wine)
The feel of the product is not impaired in any way (haptics)



Effect

Fibres are protected by a hard, virtually transparent, thin surface film
Reduction in propensity to soiling through hydrophobisation and oleophobisation of the surfaces
Air and steam can be transported through the dense matrix



Application fields

In general: outdoor textiles, which are exposed to rain.
Clothing
Table linen
Awnings
For treating rugs and carpets
Paper
