A schoeller® technology

Isn’t it fascinating how ducks can dive under water and re-emerge with their feathers still dry?

Like all waterfowl, ducks produce an oily secretion that makes their plumage to repel water. The ecorepel® technology transfers this natural water repellence to textile surfaces. ecorepel® imitates this natural protection as a highly functional and odorless high-tech finish.

Advantages of ecorepel®:

  • Water and mud repellent.

    Textiles with ecorepel® finish offer reliable protection from water and mud.
  • Ecological.

    ecorepel® is environmentally sound as the technology is biodegradable (according to OECD 302 B (80 – 100%)) and free from fluorocarbons (PFC).
  • Better comfort. Textiles with ecorepel® finish are wash permanent (min. 30 washing cycles at 40°C) and highly resistant to abrasion and chafing. Professional wet cleaning is possible.
