Durable Water Repellent (DWR) Solutions

Discover how you can enhance your textile and apparel products with the most advanced and environmentally-friendly water repellent technology in the industry.

All Water Repellents Solutions Are
NOT Created Equal

There are 3 primary types of water repellent products; fluorine-free, C8, and C6. So what’s the difference between them? Toxicity! While our water repellent product, Sciessent Curb, is 100% fluorine-free, rapidly biodegradable, and Bluesign approved, other repellents are far less safe.

C8 and C6 water repellents contain dangerous fluorocarbons which are made of carbon and fluorine atoms. Although these chemicals help repel water and oil from fabrics, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined them to be highly toxic to humans.

“We’ve looked at all the technologies on the market, and Sciessent continuously outperformed them. The value their technologies have added to our products has helped us grow tremendously. They have been a valued partner, and will be for many more years.”

- Josh Vandernoot, Owner of Cosmo Fabrics
