OrganoTex® textile impregnation is launched in the UK with FTUK as agent

OrganoClick is since two years supplying fluorocarbon-free and biodegradable textile impregnations and maintenance products for clothes and garments under the brand OrganoTex®. The products are sold in Sweden, Finland and Norway in stores like Naturkompaniet, Partioaitta, Alewalds, Skistar, Team Sportia, among others. OrganoTex® is now launched in the UK with the sport and outdoor agent FTUK as sales partner.

OrganoTex® Textile Waterproofing Spray-On and Wash-In has been developed during several years and have been designed to give good water repellancy, yet being biodegradable. The product is based on OrganoClick’s patented and awarded technology for modification of textile fibers and is totally free from the problematic perfluorinated compounds (PFAS), cyclic siloxanes and isocyanates that is often used in textile impregnations. Several of these chemicals are thought to be cancerogenic and hormone disruptive, as well as being bioaccumulative in nature.

 

FTUK is an established Outdoor agency set up in 2014, to handle the Five Ten, Adidas Terrex, XClimb Pro and Superyellow brands in the UK and Ireland. Renowned for their personable staff, and grass roots marketing expertise, FTUK is present in every quality bike, climbing and outdoor shop in the UK.

Mo Overfield the Manager of FTUK says “As a business that is very much involved in sports and activities that happen in our green spaces, we see an increasing need to protect them. Being a long time climber, ultra-runner and rider, I am totally committed to the wellbeing of our ‘outdoor playgrounds’. As we develop brands like OrganoTex, I feel that we are doing something to help. OrganoTex’s truly biodegradable DWR treatment means less pollution in our waterways. We are proud to represent OrganoTex’s reproofing technology in our wet and windy country.”
