G3i Finish uses ten times less fluorochemical

Jan '08
Care-free products, those that resist staining, are easily cleaned, stand up to the hustle and bustle of life and look great right out of the wash, have become part of our lives. Consumers want to spend less time maintaining the products they buy and more time enjoying them. Fluorochemicals are the invisible magic coating that makes all this possible, from non-stick pans to stain resistant carpets, upholstered furniture and stain resistant clothing.

The incredible strength of fluorochemicals, however, may also be their greatest weakness – fluorochemicals stay in the environment, they do not break down for decades and even centuries after disposal. What is more, fluorochemicals accumulate in our bodies and in the bodies of animals and there has been concern raised over the potential long term effect of these materials.

Nature, seemingly always the better engineer than humans, has proven that surfaces may repel water and be kept clean without the use of fluorochemicals. The best example is the sacred Lotus leaf, whose remarkable naturally-engineered leaves cause water to “bead-up” and roll over the leaf surfaces, cleaning and protecting them from invasion by unwanted pests. So what can we learn from the lessons of nature?

G3 Technology Innovations, LLC (G3i) a company dedicated to environmental causes, announces the development of a textile finish that mimics the Lotus leaf. GreenShield is the next generation of textile finishes. It is manufactured using green nanotechnology principals.
