OrganoClick AB, developer and producer of environment-friendly fibre chemistry, has developed OraganoTex, a water repellent finish supplied as a spray-on or wash-in product. The product is completely biodegradable according to OECD 301A and is free from perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), isocyanates and cyclic siloxanes, said the head of the Swedish company.

When applied by consumers, OrganoTex finish lasts 5-20 washes depending on the type of fabric and fibre.

Talking about the current market for performance textiles, Marten Hellberg, CEO of OrganoClick told Fibre2Fashion, “The performance textile markets have traditionally focused mainly on adding more and better functions to textiles. However, during the last four to five years the focus and interest in sustainable processes among outdoor and sports goods companies has increased dramatically, not the least within durable water repellents (DWRs). Since the first Greenpeace report in 2013, the industry has quickly moved to more sustainable, DWRs free of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs).”

The major markets for the company’s binders and water-repellent additives are Europe, China, Japan and Taiwan. Hellberg said that there are many other interesting markets for its products such as South Korea, South East Asia, India, Turkey and the US.

OrganoClick is currently working on other functionalities for technical textiles. Fire retardants are a product range that it supplies to other fibre-based material producers and which it is currently adapting to technical textiles, he added. (KD)
