OrganoTex® industrial DWR

OrganoTex® industrial DWR

OrganoTex® is a fluorocarbon-free water repellent (DWR) technology developed with inspiration of the Lotus-flowers 3D-structure. The DWR-technology provides functional fabrics with durable protection against water, snow and water-based soiling such as stains from red wine, coffee, ketchup, etc. The water repellency is highly durable and withstands numerous cycles of home laundry.

Below is a table that shows an example fabric of polyester or  polyamide and its water repellancy performance after treatment with OrganoTex®  DWR-technology.

Sustainability

The OrganoTex® technology readily biodegradable in accordance with OECD 301 C and are calssified as non-toxic according to CLP. The product is completely free from fluorocarbons (e.g. PFOS, PFOA, etc) and polyurethanes as well as other bioaccumulative chemicals that negatively affect ecosystems. It is also free from hazardous chemicals, such as isocyanates that may cause respiratory problems.

Branding 

Brand owners that uses fabrics treated with the OrganoTex® technology are offered an attractive co-branding platform that can be used to promote the environmentally friendly characteristics of OrganoTex®-treated textiles to consumers and retailers. For more info, please contact us here.

Using nature's own chemistry

The OrganoTex® technology is based on nature's own chemistry, using plant-based catalysts to bind water repellent “fatty” polymers directly to the textile fibers. The plant-based catalysts create a 3D-structured fabric surface of “fatty” molecules, resulting in the OrganoTex® technology´s excellent performance. The 3D-structured fabric surface still feels smooth and its roughness is invisible to the eye, much like the surface of the Lotus flower's leaves. The hand-feel of the fabric is soft and as the DWR-technology is not film-forming, the breathability of the fabric is still kept after the treatment.
