Textile Shield

DryWired™ : Textile Shield is a revolutionary non-toxic super-hydrophobic nanocoating that can be applied as a transparent spray or liquid dip to natural and synthetic textiles. Unlike other hydrophobic fluorocarbon based textile coatings,Textile Shield is breathable, bio-compatible, completely inert and food safe. In laboratory testing, our textile coating achieved 150 degree super-hydrophobic contact angles on natural and synthetic textiles. In addition,Textile Shield is resistant to harsh detergents and demonstrates excellent self-cleaning properties with continuous performance up to 30 washes.Textile Shield is only 100-150 nm in thickness (approximately 800 times thinner than a human hair).Textile Shield can be applied to fabrics such as: Cotton, Canvas, Suede/Leather Corduroy, Flannel, Poplin, Sailcloth, Sateen, Terry Cloth, Wool, Linen, Fleece or to synthetic textiles such as: Nylon, Polyester, Gore-tex, Microfiber, Acetate, Acrylic, Rayon, Polyblends, Olefin, Polypropylene, Spandex, and many more.

 For performance testing, we use the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) Method 22-2010 – Water Repellency Spray Test. Depending on the material being tested,Textile Shield nanocoated fabrics received a score between 80 & 100 indicating minimal to no wetting or sticking to the various textile surfaces.
