In laboratory testing, FabricDefend achieved 150-degree super-hydrophobic contact angles on
natural and synthetic textiles. For performance testing, we use the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) Method 22-2010 – Water Repellency Spray Test. On cotton fabric, FabricDefend received a perfect initial score of 100 (indicating no wetting or sticking) and 85 after 30 washes.
FabricDefend has received the Eco-passport certification from the Hohenstein Institute which states that it is safe for human/animal skin contact.
Application & Storage
- Surface preparation Textile must be completely free of all contaminants including detergents and fabric softeners. To rid of contaminants, wash using hot water on a spin cycle. Fabric must be COMPLETELY dry before application.
- Application: Completely saturate fabric by spray or dip application.
- Dry/cure time: This coating completely adheres to the surface after 24 hours. The coating will only exhibit the hydrophobic property after this curing period.
- Storage: 2-year unopened shelf life stored at 38°F to 86°F (3°C to 30°C) out of sunlight in a dry, well-ventilated area.
- 25-300 ml/10ft² (1m²) (range depends on the absorbency of the material)
Textile Shield is a water-based and non-toxic superhydrophobic nanocoating that is breathable, biocompatible, completely-inert and food safe.
It has been laboratory-tested to achieve 150 degree superhydrophobic contact angles on natural and synthetic textiles and is only 100-150 nm thick.
Textile Shield can be applied onto a natural and synthetic textile by means of a transparent spray or dip coating.
Prior to application of Textile Shield, the textile must be dry and completely free of all contaminants including detergents and fabric softeners.
Textile Shield can be applied to cotton, suede, canvas, corduroy, flannel, wool, silk, linen, and polyester.
When applied to a textile surface, Textile Shield will cure and completely adhere to the surface after 24 hours.
At this point, it will make the surface completely hydrophobic and resistant to dirt and other contaminants.
25-300 ml/10ft² (1m²) (range depends on the absorbency of the material)
Textile Shield is washing and cleaning agent resistant and is able to last up to 30 washes. It is also resistant to temperature change.
Textile Shield has a 2-year unopened shelf-life when stored between 3ºC and 30ºC
