Teflon (fluoroplast-4, PTFE, organofluorine) - a unique tissue treatment that forms an invisible protection around the fibers. This is a patented development of the chemical concern Invista (former DuPontTextiles & Interiors company) in the USA.
Teflon impregnation is not felt to the touch, suitable for different types of fabrics, does not affect the shade and vapor permeability of the processed material. The use of organofluorine prevents the penetration of contaminants into the fiber, so that any liquid, even oil-based, can be brushed off the fabric, and dust and dried dirt can be removed with a simple cloth brush.
Water-repellent Teflon impregnation for clothes
The Teflon chemical compound is applied to the treated surface in the form of an aqueous solution by dipping, followed by fixing the layer and drying it. The thickness of the material is completely impregnated with teflon, it only affects yarn (threads), it does not affect the “breathing” properties of fabrics.
Teflon fabric is most often used in light industry for the production of overalls, suits for outdoor activities and mountain hiking in any weather, military clothing. Membrane fabrics based on expanded PTFE are produced in this area. This is the thinnest porous film applied to the fabric, produced by the mechanical treatment of organofluorine.
Advantages and possibilities of Teflon-impregnated fabrics
The development of Teflon for coating fabrics combines a number of important advantages:
resistance to atmospheric precipitation;
the density of the tissue structure, which repels even oil-based fluids;
increased wear and fire resistance;
Teflon-coated fabric has wide color solutions;
resistance to the harmful effects of UV radiation;
the material after processing does not crease, does not stretch, does not break;
aesthetics of the fabric;
the material is pleasant to the touch, the surface after processing is completely smooth.
Teflon fabric with an adhesive layer is biointern for the environment. If the layer is deformed and particles of teflon get into food, then they without negative impact move along the human gastrointestinal tract and are excreted.
Types of fabrics brand Teflon from Invista
Chemical Corporation produces several Teflon impregnations with different levels of protection:
Repel line - a classic version with the usual repulsive properties in relation to most oily liquids, water;
High Performance direction - these are Teflon-impregnated fabrics that have received a longer and more serious water-repellent treatment;
Advanced Dual Action technology is distinguished by the best dirt-repellent functions, it also makes it possible to remove stubborn dirt during normal washing;
Tri-Effects treatment works from the inside, absorbing excess fluid, and from the outside - repels dirt. This type of teflon is ideal for sportswear, overalls and other things that may come into contact with the skin during wear, and can be used at high temperatures.
After processing, the material is ready for sewing any clothes. Such fabric after exposure to Teflon technology receives absolutely unique characteristics. It can be windproof, windproof, waterproof.
