Huntsman Textile Effects and Chemours are set to expand their long-term alliance in the area of durable water repellence (DWR). By combining the strengths of both companies in innovation, technical support, and marketing, the expanded co-operation unlocks the full potential of the alliance to develop and deliver new, sustainable DWR solutions and chemistry.

The historical alliance that was established in the early 1990s has been at the forefront of delivering state-of-the-art solutions to the textile industry for durable water repellent effects. In addition to fluorinated solutions, the expanded alliance will now be able to offer non-fluorinated alternatives as well. The alliance will cover different aspects of the value chain including research, marketing, technical support, and manufacturing, Huntsman said in a media statement.

Together, Huntsman Textile Effects and Chemours have worked to lead the textile industry’s transition from long-chain water repellent products to more environmentally friendly short-chain chemistry and, more recently, non-fluorinated chemistry. The collaboration has resulted in new, market-leading DWR solutions that deliver on performance and sustainability.

“Strengthening the partnership between Huntsman Textile Effects and Chemours unlocks the full potential of both companies to shape technology and product offerings in sustainable durable water repellency. Our cooperation, which has stood the test of time, has clearly demonstrated that strong environmental credentials and performance can co-exist in equal measure. We are excited to move forward with a broader alliance as we strengthen our position as the industry leader in DWR textile solutions,” Jay Naidu, vice president, strategic marketing and planning, Huntsman Textile Effects said.

“Chemours is excited to expand our partnership with Huntsman Textile Effects. This partnership reinforces our commitment to take a leadership role in the innovation and development of more sustainable and high performing products that address the rapidly evolving needs of the textile industry and the consumers that use these products,” Jesal Chopra, vice president, Chemours fluoropolymers said.

In 2017, Huntsman Textile Effects introduced PHOBOTEX RSY non-fluorinated durable water repellent, which was developed to specifically meet extreme protection, comfort and durability requirements for both synthetic and cellulosic fibres, delivering an enhanced environmental profile for brands. PHOBOTEX RSY durable water repellent raises the bar in performance on synthetics, allowing brands to offer high-performance weather protection with an assurance of eco-friendly sustainability. Providing effective protection in extreme environments together with breathable comfort, PHOBOTEX RSY durable water repellent repulses rain, sleet, and snow, ideal for high- performance outerwear fabrics.
