Sciessent, a provider of antimicrobial and odor absorption solutions for the textile and apparel industries, now offers Curb™, a fluorocarbon-free durable water repellent (DWR) fabric finish. Able to provide enhanced, breathable protection from rain and moisture, Curb delivers the same water repellent performance as existing technologies without the use of harmful fluorocarbons. The fabric finish gives textiles a functional finish that adds liquid-shedding properties to outerwear, causing droplets to bead and roll off the surface while maintaining permeability to air and water vapor. Curb-treated garments stay dry longer and get dry faster than untreated garments, helping to extend the life of the garment. Curb is also compatible with Sciessent’s Agion Active XL™ and Lava XL™, two of the brand’s recently-launched odor control technologies.
