Unidyne XF-5007 - Durable PFC-free water repellent for textile and nonwoven applications

Rain and stain resistance are essential functions in the fast growing sportswear, active clothing and casual apparel industry. At the same time, there is a global call for more sustainability in the textile industry.

Unidyne XF-5007, Daikin's latest environmentally friendly, fluorine-free durable water repellent (DWR) offers both function & sustainability.

Unidyne XF-5007 provides outstanding protection against water and water based stains, while it prevents chalk mark and maintains breathability and soft hand of the fabric. Thanks to the underlying anchor technology from Daikin Unidyne XF-5007 shows excellent durability against washing and daily use on a wide range of materials.

At the same time, Unidyne XF-5007 is 50% bio-based and recyclable, which reduces the ecological footprint. Unidyne XF-5007 is also Bluesign approved, listed on ZDHC ChemCheck and meets the criteria of Oeko Tex.

This makes it the ideal water repellent treatment for textiles and nonwovens and already covers a wide range of applications in the areas of clothing, outdoor and sports and upholstery.

In addition to the known applications, there is an increasing interest for PFC-free in other application areas with traditional C6-based technology such as medical masks, filtration and automotive and we believe that besides the clothing, sports and outdoor industry PFC-free is the future for many other applications that require water repellency.
