Schoeller's ecorepel to repel water in eco way
27
Jan '12
Isn't it fascinating how ducks can dive under water and reemerge with their feathers still dry? Ducks and all water fowl produce an oily secretion that makes their plumage repel water.

The textile finish ecorepel from Schoeller Technologies biomimics this natural impregnation water repellent function. ecorepel imitates this natural protection as a highly functional, odorless, high-tech finish. It is based on long paraffin chains that wrap themselves spiral-like around individual fibers, filaments or yarns in a very fine film. This reduces surface tension so that water droplets and even mud with significantly higher surface tension run off simply. The breathability is not affected and the feel remains pleasantly soft.

What makes ecorepel an ecological technology? It consists of biodegradable paraffin chains that donnot contain any fluorocarbons.

ecorepel passes Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and complies with bluesign, the world's most stringent textile production standard. ecorepel is a high-tech performance finish that does not negatively affect

our environment, in its manufacture nor its use. The new finish is being displayed at ISPO in Munich for the first time.
