3M Launches Scotchgard™ Protector Repellent Finish

The new Scotchgard™ Protector Repellent Finish is the latest in St. Paul, Minn.-based 3M Corp.’s line of Scotchgard fabric treatments that protect fabrics from stains and exposure while maintaining their hand and breathability.

The finish, designed for man-made fabrics used in active and casual outerwear, provides lasting water-repellent characteristics through the use of a next-generation formula that 3M claims is a more sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to competitive protective treatments.

The formula’s chemistry uses short-chain carbon (C) lengths of C4 and below, rather than longer chain chemistries used in the chemical makeup of competitive products. These shorter carbon chain lengths have low toxicity and low environmental impact, according to 3M.
