Nano-Tex Launches Fortify DP Wrinkle-Free Technology
Nano-Tex — an Oakland, Calif.-based supplier of nanotechnology-based textile enhancements for
apparel, home and interiors applications — has developed a finish that provides a high level of
wrinkle resistance while maintaining a fabric's tear and tensile strength and integrity.
According to Nano-Tex, Fortify DP's nanoscale molecule structure enables it to penetrate deeper into the fabric's fibers, resulting in a higher durable press rate than that provided by traditional technology. In addition, Fortify DP's cross-linking structure is longer and more flexible, which reduces fiber stress under tension and therefore reduces strength loss associated with traditional wrinkle-free technology. Nano-Tex reports the finish is long-lasting and gives fabrics a smooth, neat appearance.
