C6 Technology opens new doors for fabric product

Skankeywear-Beaverton, Oregon. C6 Technology is an innovative technology that can be applied to any fabric before or after production. Being able to apply this treatment to a finished product opens new doors and capabilities for the fabric product that is treated. Now embroideries, screen printed products, seams and thread will be included in the treatment, making them stain and water resistant as well. This process can be applied to most fabrics making many more possibilities for the product. From jeans, to knitted shirts, to woven shirts: almost anything can be treated.

C6 Technology uses a C6 carbon chain rather than a C8 carbon chain like most of its competitors. C8 carbon chains are full of Perfluorooctanoic acids(PFOA), a man-made chemical which does not occur naturally in the environment. Recently scientists have found great apprehension as levels of PFOA have been commonly found in many humans across the world and concerns abound about how exposure to PFOA could affect people's health. Unlike C8, a C6 Carbon chain does not contain PFOA, which makes our C6 Technology environmentally safe.

This new process is a step ahead of the rest in protecting the products that are sold. C6 Technology makes the product stain, water, odor, wrinkle and fade resistant, but a new attribute that has yet to be mentioned is the breathability that the products retain. With this new treatment process, the product can have long life treatment of over 55 washes and keep a desired hand (or feel) of the fabric as though it had never been treated with any process.

C6 Technology does not make the products water or stain proof, only water and stain resistant. This means that if any dirt or grease has accumulated, it will stay on the surface. Washing of these garments is made easier and faster. It alleviates stress of buying high end detergents or pretreatments. The dirt is simply cleaned right off the surface and leaves C6 Technology on the garment ready to again resist water and stains. This also cuts down on the time in the dryer, which helps save your energy bill.

Skankeywear and NW Allen are two lines of clothing that use C6 Technology. Making the comforts of a wrinkle and stain resistant lifestyle more attainable to the average consumer. Purchasing clothing with C6 Technology treatments helps save you money on your water and energy bill with washings and drying. C6 Technology is here to save your wallet as well as your time.
