As part of its sustainability strategy, Polartec has developed a DWR (durable water repellent) finish free of per- and polyfluoralkyl substances (PFAS). The performance and durability of the materials remain unchanged.

The new fluorocarbon-free DWR finish offers good weather protection and is used in the fabric categories Power Shield, Power Shield Pro, NeoShell and Windbloc from Polartec LLC, Andover, MA/USA. To achieve even better moisture management, the technology is also used in heat-insulating products from the Thermal Pro and Alpha fabric families.

Polartec is committed to environmentally sustainable products and has to date used over 1.8 billion PET bottles in the production of functional fabrics from recycled materials.
