In a world where style meets function, Impermea Materials leads the way with its groundbreaking coating that caters to fashion and function. With various innovative solutions, Impermea Materials offers a versatile coatings lineup that enhances a textile's performance, appeal, and functionality across many industries.
Impermea Material's coatings are based on cutting-edge technologies that provide exceptional performance while prioritizing environmental consciousness. Unlike traditional fluorochemical-based treatments that often contain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), Impermea Materials' coatings are PFAS-free and 100% fluorine-free, ensuring a safer and more sustainable alternative. The secret to these formulas lies in Impermea Material's advanced formulations, which leverage superhydrophobic and superoleophobic properties to create innovative designs. These solutions create a barrier on the fabric's surface that repels water, oils, and other liquids, preventing them from penetrating the textile fibers. These barriers allow the textiles to repel liquids, resist stains, and give additional durability without compromising the fabric's breathability and natural characteristics. Impermea Materials prides itself on offering cutting-edge technologies to meet the diverse needs of its clients. Their portfolio includes a wide range of solutions, such as:
HYDRO-TEX 1000: Unleash the Power of Superhydrophobic Barriers
Powered by Siloaloxyurylsilane, HYDRO-TEX 1000 is a water-based technology that creates a breathable, durable, and superhydrophobic-repellent coating. This PFAS-free coating is optimized for cotton, linen, rayon, polyester, denim, nylon, spandex, and more. HYDRO-TEX 1000 has a remarkable water contact angle of over 145° ensures superior water repellency while maintaining the fabric's softness and breathability. Say goodbye to liquid stains and welcome a new level of fabric protection.
HYDRO-TEX + UV 1010: Defying the Sun with UV Protection
When it comes to outdoor textiles, protection against harmful UV rays is paramount. HYDRO-TEX + UV 1010 offers the perfect solution. This formula combines our HYDRO-TEX superhydrophobic properties with added UV Protection. Like our HYDRO-TEX 1000, HYDRO-TEX + UV 1010 ensures breathability, durability, and excellent water repellency. It maintains the hand of your fabric while safeguarding against harmful UV rays, allowing you to rest easy knowing that your outdoor fabrics, such as sunshades, umbrellas, and automobile fabrics, are shielded from the sun's harmful rays.
HYDRO-TEX + VIRUSHIELD 1030: Pioneering Protective Coating for Medical Fabrics
In the medical field, fabric protection plays a critical role in preventing the transmission of viruses; Impermea Material's HYDRO-TEX + VIRUSHIELD 1030 is a game-changer. This patent-pending technology transforms conventional healthcare textiles into breathable, superhydrophobic barriers. HYDRO-TEX + VIRUSHIELD 1030 repels liquids, blocks stains, and traps smaller droplets that may contain active viruses, minimizing transmission risk. With its water-based, PFAS-free formulation, this barrier offers enhanced protection to frontline workers wearing medical scrubs, gowns, fabric masks, and other PPE.
OLEO-TEX 1100: Conquer Oil and Water-Based Challenges
When dealing with oil and water-based substances, OLEO-TEX 1100 is the ultimate defense. This high-performing, non-toxic coating resists water- and oil-based liquids, making it ideal for various industrial applications. Its exceptional water contact angle of over 149° and oil contact angle exceeding 140° ensures excellent repellency. Upholstery, automotive textiles, and healthcare fabrics can remain clean and stain-free and maintain breathability.
OLEO-TEX + FR 1120: Fire Resistance with Added Protection
Safety is paramount in textiles, especially those used by first responders such as firefighters. OLEO-TEX + FR 1120 creates a superoleophobic and superhydrophobic barrier with an additional flame-retardant finish. It's a non-toxic, PFAS-free, water-based formulation that allows textiles to become flame-retardant. Suitable for upholstery, automotive upholstery, and firefighter apparel, this innovative solution ensures enhanced safety without compromising breathability or altering the fabric's look and feel, allowing Impermea Materials to protect those who protect us.
Impermea Materials is revolutionizing the textile industry by offering coatings that seamlessly merge fashion and function, from enhancing style appeal through repellency abilities to providing critical protection in various industrial applications such as healthcare, first responders, and more. With their PFAS-free composition, Impermea Material's coatings prioritize sustainability and environmental consciousness, making them the responsible choice for the future. Impermea Material's protective coatings are revolutionizing the textile industry across various sectors, from fashion to the medical field to first responders.
