The “duo” boosts performance: BASF is launching two new fluorocarbon finishing systems - one for stain repellent and one for stain release - under the name Lurotex Duo System. Both of them are made up of two components: a Lurotex fluorocarbon finish based on advanced C6 technology and a unique Perapret booster, which has been specially developed to enhance the performance of the Lurotex fluorocarbon finish. The Lurotex Duo Systems protect textiles, such as clothing, home textiles and upholstery from soiling and staining and keep them spotless. Moreover, customers can meet the latest as well as future ecological requirements.

The duo boosts the performance: two is better than one
Lurotex Duo Systems are combinations of Lurotex fluorocarbon finishes based on advanced C6 technology and a unique Perapret booster, which has been specially developed to accompany the Lurotex fluorocarbon finish that enhances the spotless effect:

Lurotex Duo System for stain repellent: Lurotex Protector RP ECO based on C6 technology + Perapret Booster XLR Lurotex Duo System for stain release: Lurotex Protector RL ECO based on C6 technology + Perapret Booster XLR

It is these “duos” that improve the performance whether for stain repellent and stain release. Compared to current fluorocarbon finishes, the durability of performance is enhanced while retaining the soft handle and highest degree of whiteness. The Lurotex Duo Systems are also versatile in application, as they can be applied to cellulosic fabrics, such as cotton as well as synthetics and their blends.

Contribution to consumer safety: Lurotex fluorocarbon finishes based on C6 technology
The new Lurotex fluorocarbon finishes are based on C6 technology. Compared to products based on the current C8 technology, the trace of PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) is reduced to below the level of detection with state of the art analytical methods.

“This will support customers, as well as retailers and brands in meeting the latest and future ecological requirements,” explains Janardhanan Ramanujalu, Head of Global Business Management Textile Chemicals at BASF. “We view consumer safety, resource saving and climate protection as highly important for the sustainable development of the textile industry, as well as satisfying customer's demands for high performance. Lurotex Duo System is yet another example of our contribution to Putting FUTURE into Textiles.”

The Textile Chemicals business unit of BASF Group offers textile auxiliaries for weaving, pretreatment and dyeing, as well as comprehensive solutions for pigment printing, finishing and textile coatings. BASF products are manufactured and marketed worldwide.
