Barrier by HeiQ creates 3D structure of textile surface

HeiQ Materials has launched “Barrier by HeiQ” a revolutionary effect for textile surfaces. Barrier by HeiQ is a novel particlebased water and oil repellency system, providing extraordinary protection against the elements and stains for all types of fabrics.

Barrier by HeiQ is distinctly more effective than the common stain and weather resistant textile finish available on the market. The superior performance is possible thanks to the unique 3D structure of the textile surface built-up by specialized microsized particles that are firmly embedded in the textile finish applied to the textile. The special 3D surface structure which Barrier by HeiQ creates on the textile minimizes the contact area between water or oil and the textile, thereby effectively preventing water, oil and stains from adhering to the surface.

The Barrier by HeiQ technology is not only highly durable, the high performance of the technology can also cut the use of fluorine based repellency chemicals by up to 60 %, making Barrier by HeiQ an environmentally responsible performance choice.

“Barrier by HeiQ offers a completely new dimension to functional finishing with conventional fluorocarbons and other particle-based repellent systems available on
the market today” says Kristofer Skantze, Head of Marketing and Sales at HeiQ. “It is the most advanced technology available to textiles to provide unparalleled repellency and self-cleaning characteristics coupled with true sustainable credentials”.

The Barrier by HeiQ system of products offers the following advantages:
• Superior water repellency
• Superior oil repellency
• Unrivalled wash durability
• Simple 1-step padding (foulard) application (process savings)
• Consistent and robust performance
• Suitable for all fabric types
• High performance with minimal fluorine (environmental sustainability)
• Directly compatible with other HeiQ effects (e.g. Pure by HeiQ antimicrobial textile effects)
• Cost effective

HeiQ Materials AG is a Swiss company manufacturing high performance additives and state-of-the art, sustainable textile effects for the most demanding functionalities.
