Huntsman Textile Effects, a leader in high quality dyes and chemicals for textile industries, has unveiled the new PHOBOTEX RSY non-fluorinated durable water repellent (DWR) that raises the standard for repellency on high-performance synthetic textiles. PHOBOTEX RSY delivers best-in-class performance to support non-fluorinated formulations.

The new product will allow brands and retailers to meet global demand for eco-friendly clothing that require extreme rain- and stain- protection.

PHOBOTEX RSY durable water repellent is an environmentally friendly, non-fluorinated formulation that customers and global brands can rely on to produce sustainable textile products without compromising performance. The new addition complements Huntsman Textile Effects’ comprehensive range of durable water repellents and reinforces its position as the textile industry’s leading provider of non-fluorinated technology.

Providing effective protection in extreme environments, PHOBOTEX RSY durable water repellent repulses rain, sleet and snow and performs well on synthetics and blends. It is ideal for high-performance outerwear fabrics, offering breathable comfort and durable water repellence. Fabrics treated with PHOBOTEX RSY durable water repellent also repel stains, so they stay looking new for longer and can be easily spot cleaned.

PHOBOTEX RSY durable water repellent is based on non-fluorinated technologies and complies with the latest requirements of bluesign, the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List) and the Restricted Substances Lists of the world’s global brands. Fabrics treated with PHOBOTEX RSY durable water repellents are suitable for Oeko-Tex Standard 100 when applied as recommended.

Lee Howarth, global marketing manager for finishing at Huntsman Textile Effects said, “PHOBOTEX RSY durable water repellent raises the bar for performance on synthetics, allowing brands to offer high-performance weather protection to outdoor enthusiasts with an assurance of eco-friendly sustainability. As a trusted partner to the industry, Huntsman Textile Effects continues to lead the transition to non-fluorinated DWR alternatives that meet stringent environment, health and safety standards."
