NanoSphere protects you from bad weather

NanoSphere is a pioneering finish that is the best choice for functionality, ecology and sustainability. The extremely high water repellency protects in bad weather without affecting breathability. The long lasting finish will still be active when many commercial water and dirt repellent products have long failed.

In addition, by using modern C6 fluorocarbons, the textile finishing is PFOA and PFOS-free. Therefore, choosing NanoSphere today is the way to make a positive impact on the future.

Retained function and a promising future
New tests prove that NanoSphere enjoys an extraordinary resilience. Among many other rigorous evaluations, NanoSphere was tested in accordance with the AATCC test method 79. After 30,000 abrasion cycles, the water and oil repelling function of NanoSphere proved to be at the top level while a comparable, conventional finish dropped practically to zero after exposure to 5,000 cycles.

A further feature of NanoSphere's longevity is evident in the Bundesmann rain test. After 10 minutes of constant exposure to rain with a simulated 100 litres of water on a 1m2 fabric sample, NanoSphere still displays a value of 4 (maximum = 6), while a conventional product achieved only a value of 1.

This effect is a benefit for trousers or jackets, but is proving to be an advantage for products such as belts and bags. NanoSphere was developed in Switzerland in accordance to the criteria of the bluesign standard, the world's most stringent production standard for Environment, Health and Safety specifications (EHS).
