September 2013
Fibro Chem LLC introduces a proprietary workhorse C-6, PFOA/PFOS free, polymeric fluorocarbon resin with performance similar to traditional C-8 based fluorochemistry in water repellency and aqueous soil resistance.
Its ecologically optimized formulation includes a special cross-linking package that is highly resistance to yellowing. High temperature curing is not needed, and most substrates can be cured at 140 – 160 degrees Celsius. It can be applied to woven and non-woven textiles and carpet in variety of fiber types, including polyester-cotton blends, PET, and PTT. Application is by pad process. Once applied and cured, the product yields a soft full hand and has high resistance to washing and abrasion.
