Huntsman Textile Effects, a division of Huntsman Corporation and a leading global provider of high quality dyes and chemicals to the textile and related industries, launched the PHOBOTEX range of fluorine-free rain protection and stain management products.

The PHOBOTEX range is entirely complementary to the existing range of Phobol CP short-chain C6 fluorocarbons, sold under the Teflon trademark. This launch further extends Huntsman’s comprehensive range of stain management and durable water-repellent products that are fully aligned with many industry benchmarks, including industry benchmarks including OEKO-TEX, bluesign, aligned with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) joint roadmap and listed chemicals and substances from the Restricted Substances Lists (RSL).

PHOBOTEX are an advanced and comprehensive range of fluorine-free hydro polymers, specifically developed to specifically protect a wide range of textile end-uses against rain and every day stains from ketchup and red wine to mud and grass, The range includes technologies that impart a water-based repellency and stain management effects to textiles for up to 30 washes at 40oC and beyond. With a softer finish compared to other conventional technologies available, PHOBOTEX is suitable for many different end-uses including woven top weights and outdoor sports apparel. 

Other products in the new PHOBOTEX range also impart a clever stain release effect after washing, together with quick-drying properties to textiles, wicking away perspiration and enhancing the comfort level for the wearer. It is also compatible with many other effects technologies, making them a very versatile offer for a wide range of textiles.

Fabrics treated with PHOBOTEX can provide rain and stain protection to a wide range of end-uses from outdoor rainwear and active wear, pants and career wear to more technical fabrics such as awnings, tarpaulins, boat covers, outdoor furnishings and shower curtains.
