ecorepel® Dry Cleaning Resistant – ecological water repellency that is PFC-free and dry cleaning resistant
Ecological water repellency that is PFC-free AND dry cleaning resistant
The PFC-free, water-repellent ecorepel® technology launched by schoeller® in 2012 has now been further developed to allow for successful application on textiles and apparel that are “dry clean only.” ecorepel® DCR achieves impressive water-repellency results, even after several home launderings and professional dry cleaning cycles. The resistance to professional dry cleaning refers to the F-cleaning symbol, which stands for a recommended cleaning process for sensitive fabrics using hydrocarbon solvents.
In addition, tests show that materials finished with ecorepel® DCR are highly resistant to abrasion and scuffing. ecorepel® DCR technology is now available for licensing and can be used in a variety of applications, such as outdoor, sport and fashion apparel, as well as upholstery fabrics.
