Water-repellent finishing aims to use a hydrophobic finish to create a "pearling" effect. Using fluorocarbon finishing, for instance, we can achieve outstanding, long-lasting hydrophobic effects that are relatively resistant to washing. As the issue of environmental sustainability grows ever more important, so has the process of fluorine-free hydrophobic finishing. Sustainability has always been a priority for us at AG Cilander – and this also includes the development of innovative fluorine-free, water-repellent, protective finishing methods. We develop these in compliance with the rigorous criteria set out by the GOTS standard. Thanks to our state-of-the-art exhaust air purification systems, no harmful waste gases of any kind leave our facilities as a result of our finishing processes.
