Many textile impregnations are currently based on fluorocarbons (e.g. PFAS, PFC, etc) and other chemicals that may be hormone disruptive and non-degradable. OrganoTex® is a biodegradable and fluorocarbon free water-repellent technology for textile fabrics which has been developed with inspiration from the water repellent properties of the Lotus flower. We supply products both for consumers as a spray-on or wash-in product, and for industrial use as a durable water repellent (DWR) product.
OrganoTex® is a Swedish technology and brand developed by OrganoClick AB. OrganoClick was founded in 2006 as a commercial spin-off company based on research performed at Stockholm University and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. OrganoClick has won a number of prizes, such as "Scandinavian Outdoor Sustainability Award", "Sweden's Most Promising Start -up" and "Sweden's Best Environmental Innovation", and has also received a number of awards, such as the WWF "Climate Solver" award.
The OrganoTex® technology is based on nature's own chemistry, using plant-based catalysts to bind water repellent “fatty” molecules directly to the textile fibers. The 3D- structured fabric surface still feels smooth and its roughness is invisible to the eye, much like the surface of the Lotus flower's leaves.
