Bolger & O’Hearn, a leading specialty chemical company, will showcase OmniBloq, its revolutionary breathable and durable water repellent (DWR) fabric -- at Techtextil beginning May 22. An ideal DWR against even the harshest rainstorms and squalls, OmniBloq has been engineered to keep rain off, and get the sweat out, without bulk or stiffness of a laminate.

At the three-day event, Bolger & O’Hearn will also launching its new OmniBloq website.

Developed in Bolger & O’Hearn’s North American labs and introduced to global markets at Winter Outdoor Retailer 2018, fabrics treated with OmniBloq readily meet or surpass AATCC Rain Test 35-2013, Bolger & O’Hearn press release said.

Lightweight, yet stormproof, OmniBloq is ideal for performance fabrics for all forms of sportswear including ski wear, athleisure wear and outer wear, as well as tents, backpacks and other outdoor gear.

"OmniBloq is a real breakthrough in the stormproof/breathable fabric category," said Shaun O’Hearn, president of Bolger & O’Hearn. "There is really nothing like it on the market. Raising performance standards and reducing your environmental impact does not usually go hand-in-hand but omnibloq™ delivers on both fronts. With OmniBloq, you get stormproof/breathable performance without all of the resources associated with laminated fabrics. This is an amazing achievement.”

Global performance brands and the US military have already begun adopting OmniBloq as the DWR of choice for their next-generation product launches. In addition to being waterproof yet highly breathable, OmniBloq is recyclable, non-PFOA and provides protection against oil and stains. (RR)
