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

Being a long time climber, ultra-runner and rider, I am totally committed to the wellbeing of our ‘outdoor playgrounds’.
