Global acceptance of NanoSphere finishing technology increases
Nov '08
Around one year from the announcement of the new strategic cooperation between Schoeller Technologies AG (patent holder, branding, marketing) and Clariant International Ltd. (production, world-wide sales, know-how transfer, quality assurance) the high quality NanoSphere finishing technology is proving to be on the right course: The number of partners almost quadrupled within this year, rising from 12 to 47.

The range of countries now includes China, Germany, France, India, Italy, Columbia, Mexico, Switzerland, Spain, Taiwan and Turkey as well as the USA. This aspired qualitative growth has had a positive effect on the areas of application: new plants for the clothing market, commercial textiles, home textiles, up-holstery and the automotive industry use the high-quality water and dirt repelling and repeatedly award-winning textile technology.

Furthermore, in May 2008, the two companies announced an adjustment of the formula. As a result, the “new” NanoSphere not only achieves top marks for the self-cleaning effect, oil and water repellence, abrasion resistance and washing permanence – but, thanks to the latest C6 fluorocarbon technology, this finishing technology is also free* of PFOA and PFOS (see also www.nano-sphere.ch).

NanoSphere is applied by such brands as Arc'teryx, Bestard, BMW, Bush, Canada Goose, Cloudveil, Dakine, Holden Outerwear, Incase, Journey Light, Magma, Mammut, Mountain Equipment Co-op, NanoPet, New Balance, Quiksilver, Reebok, Ships, Simms, SBB (Swiss Railway), Steiff, Trangoworld, TRG and Westcomb as well as many others.
