Water repellent


Our water repellent functional fabrics protect above all people working in jobs that require them to be mostly outdoors.

Our water repellent fabrics either delay water getting into the fabric structure, or they prevent it completely. Whether they are fully waterproof or merely delay the process and are therefore water repellent depends on what they are used for – e.g. to manufacture outdoor clothing or uniforms for the military and other services. The hydrophobic effect is achieved by applying a coating to the fabric surface.
