Teflon™ Textile Repellents

Protect Fabrics with High-Performing Repellent and Soil-Release Textile Finishes

Chemours offers a variety of textile finishes for technical and consumer fabrics based on different technologies and raw materials.

Capstone™ Products for Textile Finishes

Chemours manufactures Capstone™ repellent and stain release products, which are the key ingredients in PHOBOL® CP fabric finishes sold by Archroma. Fabrics treated with PHOBOL® CP that meet set performance levels can be branded Teflon™ fabric protector.

This portfolio of products offers superior oil and water repellency, high durability, and—in some products—stain-release performance. Capstone™ repellents and stain releases also exceed expectations regarding the environmental sustainability of the short-chain chemistry that protects these fabrics.

Features and Benefits of Capstone™ Repellents and Stain Releases

Capstone™ repellents offer an enhanced, high-performance, short-chain product that provides outstanding soil- and stain-repellency for many fabric types. Capstone™ stain release finishes help release ground-in stains during laundering, keeping fabrics looking new longer.

Zelan™ R3 Finish: Non-Fluorinated, Biobased Repellent

Zelan™ R3 finish provides a durable, water-repellent treatment for fabrics that guards against rain- and water-based stains. The finish also offers high-durability for home laundering by providing extended water and water-based stain repellency for up to 30 washes.

Fabrics treated with Zelan™ R3 that meet required performance specifications can be branded Teflon EcoElite™ renewably sourced finish.

Huntsman sells and provides technical support for Zelan™ R3 finish for textiles.

A Commitment to Environmental Sustainability

Zelan™ R3 is made with 60% renewably sourced, plant-based raw materials that are non-genetically modified organisms (GMO) and non-food source feedstock. Zelan™ R3 is recognized as a USDA-certified biobased product.
