TEXTILE WATER
& OIL REPELLENCE

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Avco® fluoropolymers specifically designed to impart durable water repellence (DWR) effect, oil repellence and stain release properties to various kind of fabrics. These polymers are suitable for both textiles and nonwoven materials as highperformance outdoor equipment and work-clothes. Once properly applied they do not interfere neither with the original breathability or with the softness of the fabrics. All of our C6 Avco® fluoropolymers are Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) free.

CROSSLINKERS BLOCKED

BLOCKED POLY-ISOCYANATE

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Avco fluorine-free blocked isocyanate. They can be used as crosslinking agents for various coating applications that require heat-curing cycles. Applications include increased durable water repellent (DWR) effect and soil release  roperties. The durability and the adhesion of coatings are also improved. All of our Avco blocked isocyanate polymers are formaldehyde-free.

PROPERTIES

  • Improve the durable water repellence (DWR) effect
  • Improve the soil release properties on textiles and leather
  • Improve the resistance to chemical and environmental attack
  • Improve the durability of coatings and adhesives in aqueous-pad applications
  • Enhance the lamination and the adhesion of coatings
  • Improve the resistance to blood and saline penetration in woven and nonwoven fabrics
  • Require heat-curing cycles

 

CROSSLINKERS
POLY-CARBODIIMIDE

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Avco® fluorine-free carbodiimide crosslinkers. They are an excellent alternative for more hazardous isocyanate and aziridine crosslinkers. They react with COOH groups (in acrylic and polyurethane polymers) forming the so-called “interpenetrating network” with the polymeric binder. The result is a dense network that improves the resistance performances of the coating against cleaning liquids and prevents sun cream lotions, food and chemicals stains.

PROPERTIES

  • Increase strength and hardness
  • Improve abrasion and chemical resistance
  • Improve the resistance to hydrolysis
  • Increase the adhesion to substrates
  • Improve products pot-life
  • Not moisture sensitive
  • Fast curing speed
