AsahiGuard E-SERIES products are fluorinated water/oil repellents for fabrics, nonwoven fabrics, papers and other materials. They contain no PFOA (at or above detection limits), longer chain PFCs or their precursors. Drawing on fluorine’s extraordinary properties, these specialty chemicals provide excellent protection and durability against water, oil and dry soil without changing the texture, color or breathability of a fabric or material.
Textiles and non woven fabrics treated with AsahiGuard E-SERIES grades resist dirt and, when they do become dirty, are easy to clean. That’s because their very low surface tension makes oils, stains and water bead rather than soak into materials. When applied, these coatings can keep fabrics, nonwovens, paper, leather, carpet and uniforms looking new longer. They can also be used in combination with other agents such as starches, paper strengtheners and fixatives.
AsahiGuard E-SERIES repellents have appropriate clearances in the U.S. (Toxic Substance Control Act), in the EU and in Japan (Chemical Substances Control Law). They also comply with Food Sanitation Law in Japan and are approved by the FDA in the United States and BfR* in Europe for food packaging use.
AsahiGuard C6 technology was first to market, three years ahead of the 2015 EPA mandate.
