HeiQ Introduces Barrier By HeiQ Textile Finish

Switzerland-based HeiQ Materials AG -- a manufacturer of silver composite additives and high-performance, sustainable textile finishes -- has unveiled Barrier by HeiQ, a particle-based textile finish that repels water, oil and stains. The system features a 3-D surface built-up by specialized microsized particles that are firmly embedded in the textile finish.

According to the company, utilizing Barrier by HeiQ technology can reduce the use of fluorine-based repellency chemicals by up to 60 percent. Other benefits of the Barrier by HeiQ system include wash durability; a simple one-step padding application; consistent performance; cost-effectiveness; direct compatibility with other HeiQ textile effects; and suitability for all fabric types.
