  • The “textile effects” division delivers innovative finishes for functional textiles, smooth leather or suede. Here surfaces are re-created on a molecular level or improved by nanotechnology (“boosters”).

  • By combining innovative materials with well-established foundation technologies, we create intelligent hybrid systems (INTELLIGENT HYBRIDS®) that set new benchmarks in respective markets.

Nanoflex® Tex 2Nanoflex® Tex 2 is a water-based spray-on product for generating water, dirt- and oil-repellent effects. It is particularly suitable for the consumer and retail sectors due to its ease of use.

Nanoflex® Tex 2 delivers outstanding protection for particularly absorbent textile substrates. Primary applications include absorbent upholstery/furniture, as well as suede/Alcantara leather. Most standard textiles, carpets and curtains can also be treated a s long as they a re free of surface-active substances (silicon/surfactants).

The product is Ökotex certified (ECO Passport), UV stable and non-migratory. Through the intelligent arrangement of hybrid (organic and inorganic) structures, Nanoflex® Tex 2 constitutes part of the Nano-Care Deutschland AG INTELLIGENT HYBRIDS® concept.

Nanoflex® F-BondNanoflex® F-Bond System was developed in cooperation with one of the world’s largest textile manufacturer to prevent performance loss during the transition from C8 to C6 fluorocarbons. This involved the creation of boosters based on ultra-thin silicon dioxide, which give the C6 technology a greater impact whilst reducing the use of substances containing fluoride.

Through the intelligent arrangement of hybrid (SiO2 and C6 fluorocarbon) structures, Nanoflex® F-Bond System constitutes part of the Nano-Care Deutschland AG  INTELLIGENT HYBRIDS® concept.

The system is comprised of several concentrates which  are diluted and applied in the foulard / padding process:

  • Nanoflex® TH4 - silica-backbone and boosters  (cationic)
  • Nanoflex® F-Bond - ecologically optimised C6 fluorocarbon polymer (mild cationic)
  • Nanoflex® W11 - crosslinker for adhesion
  • Nanoflex® WA - wetting agent (for wetting issues)
