Ultratech debuts new fabric water & oil repellency coating

Ultratech International has added Evershield, a new protective coating which offers water and oil repellency to a fabric, while increasing durability through a complex and protective matrix.

“The fabric protection establishes a polymer coating that encases each fibre of the material,” Ultratech International informed in a press release.

The company explained that the coating that is created, maintains performance levels of long chain fluorocarbons while utilising more acceptable six-carbon fluoropolymers.

EverShield uses an environmentally friendly formula using C6 chemistry and is also water-based with no VOCs.

Unlike some DWRs, Evershield treated fabrics can be washed at standard temperatures, while super-heated wash or drying cycles are not needed to maintain superhydrophobicity or oleophobicity.

“Cooler water and cooler dryers means less energy consumption and lower operating costs,” it added.

Ultratech further said that Evershield outperforms DWRs by repelling water in addition to oils, food products, mud, concrete, ice and other aqueous solutions.

Evershield treated fabrics resists and repels most oils, acids, and alkalines; is water repellent; repels and reduces the formation of ice; maintains the strength of original fabric and offers protection for over 50 washes.

Additionally, according to Ultratech, the coating preserves fabric breathability and retains fabric softness and feel.

UltraTech International offers spill containment and spill response products and features a product line that consists of over 350 unique products.

The company has introduced an average of 20 new products per year and its design and development team is credited with over 60 patents. (AR)
