RUCO®-SHIELD RAY

Special effects

Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® (Suitable for class I-IV)
ZDHC MRSL compliant
Actual application for ZDHC Chemical Gateway: Level 3

  • Durable UV protective finish of textiles for protecting the skin from harmful UV rays
  • Especially suitable for cellulosic fibres
  • Mineral titanium dioxide absorbs and reflects incident UV rays and, thus, significantly reduces the portion of transmitted rays
  • Depending on the fabric construction, the requirements of common standards (e.g. AS/NZS 4399, EN 13758, AATCC 183) can be fulfilled
  • The best results are obtained on unfinished cotton
  • Does not impair the textile handle

Chemical basis: Inorganic pigments in a polysiloxane matrix
Ionic character: Cationic

RUCO®-PUR X-FSA

Binding / Special effect

Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® (Suitable for class I-IV)
ZDHC MRSL compliant
Actual application for ZDHC Chemical Gateway: Level 0

  • Versatile wash-durable finishing agent for garments and fabrics in order to provide shape-retaining antibagging/antisagging effects
  • Handle creating agent for fashion garments
  • Suitable for all fibre types and blends

Chemical basis: Polyesterpolyurethane dispersion
Ionic character: Anionic

RUCO®-PUR SLR

Binding / Shape retaining

bluesign® approved: Yes
Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® suitable: Yes
ZDHC MRSL compliant: Yes
Actual application for ZDHC Chemical Gateway: Approved - Level 0

  • Self-crosslinking polyurethane
  • Provides excellent antisagging/antibagging properties
  • Reduces the tendency to pill and snag
  • Improves tear strength, tensile strength and abrasion resistance
  • Suitable for chintz finishes durable to washing
  • Increases resilience and elastic recovery
  • Improves the crease recovery when used in resin finishing
  • Improves the dry rub-fastness
  • Does not affect the hydrophilic properties of the finished fabric
  • Forms a soft, elastic, opaque and tack-free film

Chemical basis: Reactive polyether polyurethane
