DuPont introduces Capstone for fabric finishes

Feb '09
DuPont Chemical Solutions Enterprise announces the availability of new products for repellent and soil release finishes for the textile industry that deliver maximum performance with a minimal environmental footprint.

Based on short-chain chemistry, DuPont Capstone products for textile finishes provide a step-change reduction in trace impurities below the limit of detection, offering the same or better performance than their predecessors without compromising fluorine efficiency. Capstone products also meet the goals of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 2010/15 PFOA Stewardship Program.

DuPont Capstone products are the key ingredient in fabric finishes for apparel, home furnishings and other textiles that will be sold to mills by Huntsman under the Huntsman trade name Oleophobol CP. For consumers, these products may be identified as DuPont Teflon fabric protector once performance specifications are met by a DuPont licensed fabric mill. The DuPont chemistry for Teflon fabric protector complies with Oeko-Tex standard 100 and is a Bluesign-approved finish. Fabrics treated with Teflon fabric protector look newer longer and allow consumers to save money and energy due to the need for less frequent laundering and the ability to wash and dry at lower temperatures.

Capstone products reflect the DuPont commitment to provide the high-performance sustainable alternatives the industry demands. “Our customers that have converted to Capstone products in other market segments tell us that we have met their performance requirements,” said Thomas H. Samples, Surface Protection Solutions global business manager, DuPont Chemical Solutions Enterprise.

“The introduction of Capstone products for textiles furthers the DuPont mission of sustainable growth – creating shareholder and societal value while reducing the environmental footprint along the value chains in which our customers operate.”

DuPont is a science-based products and services company. Founded in 1802, DuPont puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere. Operating in more than 70 countries, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture and food; building and construction; communications; and transportation.
