Let ®RUCO-GUARD AIR6 be the inspiration to innovate your products.
Those who have followed the development of the chemistry of FC water repellents for the past few decades regard ®RUCO-GUARD AIR6 as a revolution. Apart from its primary effects, such as water, oil and soil repellency, ®RUCO-GUARD AIR6 develops trend-setting, unprecedented secondary effects like
This opens up new perspectives in textile development and process technology and, in addition, is environmentally friendly.
Conventional water-repellent, FC-based agents develop the water, oil and soil-repellent effects only after thermal treatment above 130 °C. This process has been necessary to orientate the polymer on the fibre. The concept of ®RUCO-GUARD AIR6 is completely new; it develops its effects already during ordinary drying in ambient air. This opens up new perspectives in many respects:
