BIONIC-FINISH® ECO

 

The sensible and sustainable withdrawal from fluorinechemistry demands the user to realistically assess the necessity for repellency of water and aqueous dirt.

RUDOLF GROUP offers an innovative alternative to the asyet customary strong water repellency which is attainedvia fluorocarbon chemistry. For years, BIONIC-FINISH ECO has been proving its efficiency in the field of making outdoor and sportswear hydrophobic. With the new RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS, a significant step has been taken towards improving the good, water-repellent properties of the BIONIC-FINISH ECO brand.

BIONIC-FINISH ECO is the umbrella brand for textiles that are finished with RUCO-DRY ECO and RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS and represents an ecological and pioneering technology for new,permanent water repellent finishing.
RUCO-DRY ECO and RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS are based on fluorine-free formulas. Highly branched, hydrophobic polymers with dendritic structures are aligned across the textile and crystallise onto specially adjusted comb polymers. An optimal arrangement of many of these functional elements is highly effective. Additional boosters, e. g. RUCO-LINK RCX, which act as bonding agents, enable optimal adhesion and permanence on the fibre.


BIONIC-FINISH ECO combines ecology with pioneering, textile water repellent finishing.

RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS was developed based on a technology which is environmentally friendly and fluorine-free using highly branched polymers, and already belongs to the 3rd generation of products based on fluorine-free formulas. It conveys higher efficiency combined with better permanence and sustainability. Oil and chemical repellency naturally cannot be achieved with this type of chemistry.

Efficient
RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS acts extremely hydrophobically. Thanks to its long and hyperbranched polymers, a large surface is formed resembling a coral or a treetop. Hydrophobic polymer end groups allow water and other aqueous liquids to simply roll off. Structural composition and chemical interaction at a molecular level are crucial to the efficiency of RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS.

 

 

Durable

RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS is firmlybound to the textile. Highly branched polymers achieve deep contact with the surface of the fibres. Systematically integrated anchor groups create better washing resistance. Boosters that are added according to the fibre substrate generate considerably better washing resistance.

Sustainable

RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS contains advanced,environmentally friendly and sustainable emulsifiers. They stabilise the active hydrophobic components, ensure a good running stability but do not have a re-wetting effect. They guarantee shear stability without having a negative impact on water repellency.

BIONIC-FINISH ECO with RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS is
versatile, because it provides:

  • better repellency of water and aqueous dirt
  • a high resistance of up to 30 washes (40°C) if ironed finally 
  • universal suitability for all types of fibres

    BIONIC-FINISH ECO finishes with RUCO-DRY ECO
  • PLUS have many advantages, because they are
  • based on a formula:
  • ree from fluorine compounds
  • formaldehyde-free
  • APEO-free
  • does not affect hand
  • resilient to abrasion and wear
  • breathable
  • sewability-improving

    BIONIC-FINISH ECO with RUCO-DRY ECO PLUS is
    easy to use, because it:
  • doesn‘t need any special detergents for laundry
  • functions when no fabric softener is used
  • only needs to be put in the dryer or ironed after washing
