Keeps textiles dry and clean.
NanoSphere®, the nanotech-based finishing technology allows dirt and water to simply run off the surface of the textiles. This mimics the natural self-cleaning effect of certain plants whose leaves always remain clean, because dirt simply cannot adhere to the finely structured surface, and is easily washed off when it rains.
The natural non-stick and cleaning process, also known as the self-cleaning effect, is transferred to the surface of textiles by means of nano technology. Compared to traditional textile impregnation processes, NanoSpere achieves significantly better results with regards to:
- Water and dirt repelling properties
- Oil repelling properties
- Washing permanence
- High level of abrasion resistance
The protective function of NanoSphere is still retained after frequent use and numerous washing cycles and has no effect on comfort, look, feel and breathability.
Nature shows us how.
The leaves of certain plants always stay clean because dirt cannot adhere to their finely-structured surfaces and is easily washed off by the rain. This natural non-stick and cleaning process, also known as the self-cleaning effect, is permanently transferred to the fabric surface by means of nanotechnology.
Liquids and stains have no chance.
The nanoparticles in the NanoSphere finish form a fine structure on the textile surface. Liquids and other substances such as oil or ketchup run off the NanoSphere surface, and any residue can easily be rinsed off with a little water.
Comparison of a conventional fabric surface with a NanoSphere surface:
< The Classic surface:
The contact surface of a water drop or a particle of dirt with the fabric, and therefore the level of adhesion is very large. As a result, water or dirt adheres to the fabric.
< The NanoSphere surface:
Water drops or particles of dirt lie only on the peaks of the nano particles, and therefore have a lower contact area. Adhesion is significantly reduced, water runs off, dirt is repelled or can simply be rinsed off.
NanoSphere imitates the natural self-cleaning effect and offers reliable protection from water, dirt and oily substances. It is based on future-oriented C6 fluorochemicals and is free* from PFOA and PFOS. The textiles finish is bluesign® approved and has been developed according to stringent ecological requirements.
- High level of water repellence (water drops run off easily)
- Self-cleaning effect (dirt and oil do not adhere to the textile
- Wash permanent and abrasion resistant (even with heavy-duty use and frequent washing). Do not use dryer sheets or fabric softeners.
