New renewably-based Teflon EcoElite
World’s first non-fluorinated plant-based finish contributes to reducing the environmental footprint for a more ecological world.
The Chemours Company, a global chemistry company with leading market positions in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts and chemical solutions presents its Teflon EcoElite durable water-repellant (DWR) technology .
Teflon EcoElite repellent, a breakthrough DWR technology, gives brands, designers, and mills a high performing, renewably sourced offering (60% renewable carbon content) capable of meeting the demanding water repellent performance requirements thought to be met exclusively by fluorinated DWR products, supporting clothing makers’ focus on shrinking their environmental footprint. Teflon EcoElite finishes provide durable water repellent performance that still performs after 30 or more washes meeting the needs of demanding outdoor brands and consumers.
Thanks to its innovative characteristics in terms of sustainability, Teflon EcoElite repellent was chosen as one of the Bio-based products of the year at the Bio-Based World News InnovationAwards for 2018. This award recognizes plant-based products and products derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials and provides an alternative to conventional petroleum derived products.
Teflon EcoElite finish complements the existing Teflon fabric protector portfolio of products focused on water, oil and stain protection. As the clear industry leader, Teflon fabric protector and Teflon EcoElite repellents are committed to meeting the needs of customers looking for lasting, high performance textile finishes.
