Bolger & O’Hearn has announced that, with the recent collaboration between Bluesign and ZDHC, several of the chemistries developed by the company are now listed on the official ZDHC list of sustainable, approved textile industry chemistries. Bolger & O’Hearn is a leading developer of specialty chemicals for the non-woven, paper, and textile industries.

ZDHC is a global sustainability leader at the forefront of effectively phasing out hazardous substances from the supply chains serving the textile, apparel, leather, and footwear industries. The guidance documents and tools of ZDHC, such as the ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted Substance List (ZDHC MRSL), the ZDHC Wastewater Guidelines, and the ZDHC Gateway platform have become a major industry reference for holistic sustainable chemical management.

Bluesign is now the first established Level 3 Accepted Certifier for ZDHC MRSL Conformance. Chemistries developed by Bolger & O’Hearn, that are now approved by Bluesign and ZDHC, include Stormproof/Breathable OmniBloq, an advanced DWR technology engineered to keep apparel dry and consumers comfortable, even when exposed to pounding wind and rain – and Altopel F3, an advanced fluorine-free water repellent.

Shawn Honeycutt, Bolger & O’Hearn sales manager said, “Bolger & O’Hearn has a long-standing commitment to environmentally preferably chemistry and we are excited to be associated with the force that the ZDHC brings to the outdoor industry.”

OmniBloq’s Stormproof/Breathable capabilities represent an entirely new DWR category for the performance industry. Simply put, Stormproof/Breathable garments have been engineered to deflect heavy, wind-driven rain, yet are lightweight and allow perspiration to evaporate. Applied at the factory, this technology is now ZDHC-approved. (GK)
