Unmatched Repellency and Protection:
OLEO-TEX + FR 1120 sets a new standard for water and oil-based repellency for textile applications. This coating’s superoleophobic and superhydrophobic properties prevent stains and sustain water and oil-based liquid beading for 3+ hours. Odorless and colorless, this product is designed for all major texiles, with the exception of leather, meaning you can maintain the pristine appearance and not sacrifice performance for protection.
Flame Retardant Finish:
Safety is on everyone’s mind, especially in applications where textiles are exposed to potential fire hazards. OLEO-TEX + FR 1120 addresses this need with its built-in flame retardant finish. By slowing down the spread of fire, this coating provides critical extra time for individuals to react and evacuate, enhancing overall safety. Whether it’s upholstery, automotive, or firefighter apparel, the flame-retardant properties of OLEO-TEK + FR 1120 make it an indispensable solution for industries prioritizing fire safety.
Preserving Aesthetics and Comfort:
While performance and safety are paramount, maintaining textiles' look, feel, and breathability is equally essential. OLEO-TEK + FR 1120 achieves this delicate balance, ensuring the coated fabrics retain their natural appearance, texture, and breathability. The seamless integration of this coating into textile products guarantees an enhanced user experience without compromising aesthetics or comfort.
Health and Environmental Friendliness:
As concerns grow over the use of harmful chemicals in textiles coatings, OLEO-TEX + FR 1120 stands apart as a PFAS-free (100% fluorine-free) coating. Traditional fluorochemicals like PFAS have been associated with severe health issues, including cancer and birth defects. By eliminating these harmful chemicals, OLEO-TEX + FR 1120 ensures a safer and healthier environment for end-users and the planet. This non-toxic, water-based formulation represents a significant step in creating sustainable and environmentally friendly textile products.
