Huntsman Unveils Oleophobol® CP-U Textile Finish

Singapore-based Huntsman Textile Effects has added Oleophobol® CP-U, an environmentally friendly textile finish designed for automotive and upholstery applications, to its line of Oleophobol CP oil-, water- and stain-repellent finishes.

The company reports that liquids bead up and roll off of fabrics treated with Oleophobol CP-U, allowing spills to be blotted off the surface of the textile with an absorbent cloth. The finish, developed through an alliance between Huntsman and Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont, is based on short-chain chemistry and offers improved fluorine efficiency and a level of trace impurities below detection limits.

Fabrics treated with Oleophobol CP-U can qualify to carry DuPont's Teflon® hangtag.
