Huntsman Unveils Phobotex® Fluorine-Free Finishes

Huntsman Textile Effects (HTE), Singapore, has introduced the Phobotex® range of fluorine-free textile finishes designed for end-use applications including rainwear, activewear, pants, careerwear, awnings, tarpaulins, boat covers, outdoor furnishings and shower curtains.

The Phobotex range - designed to complement HTE's Phobol® CP short-chain C6 fluorocarbons sold under the Teflon® trademark - comprises hydro polymer finishes that offer a soft hand and durable water-based rain repellency and stain-management effects that last for up to 30 washes at 40°C and higher, the company reports. Some products also provide a stain-release effect after washing, as well as moisture-wicking and quick-drying properties.

The finishes are compatible with other textile finishes and comply with Oeko-Tex® and bluesign® standards; align with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals joint roadmap; and are free of chemicals on the American Apparel & Footwear Association's Restricted Substances Lists.
