Ventile launches new PFC-free water repellent treatment

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-12-08 12:38:53 – Switzerland

Ventile, a textile company, claims to have invented the industry's first renewably derived water repellent treatment of its sort, which it claims is free of PFCs (perfluorinated compounds).

Ventile has developed a PFC-free, renewably derived water repellent treatment (DWR) finish that incorporates 63% renewable content from plant-based sources, thanks to advances in fabric technology. According to Ventile, the feedstock was carefully chosen from non-genetically modified (non-GMO) and non-food sources.

Because of what it deems "unnecessary environmental expenditures," the corporation was eager to shift away from PFC. It goes on to say that the move has been high on its priority list for some years.

Ventile said an "amazing" amount of study and work was done to ensure it can continue to advance sustainability in the textiles sector and commit to responsible practices throughout its manufacturing and innovation in a statement on its website.

Ventile claims to have spent the last two years working with scientists, textile experts, and dye houses to develop an alternative for durable water-repelling PFCs that would not degrade the fabric's quality.

Based on tests in the lab and in the field, the business thinks that its new ecologically friendly PFC-free DWR continues to meet end-user performance criteria.

Daniel Odermatt, Ventile marketing manager, said that this is a watershed moment for Ventile, one that they are tremendously happy to announce after years in the making. Moving to a PFC-free solution was a natural next step for their company as part of their commitment to environmental protection and sustainable textile production. With the support of industry specialists, they've developed an environmentally friendly solution - a first in the textile business – that maintains the performance criteria for which Ventile fabric is known.

Ventile explains that moving to a PFC-free environment is the company's most significant success to date. The company wants to use the event to reinforce its commitment to sustainable methods and going above and above to safeguard the environment while maintaining high fabric performance levels.
