OrganoTex® Spray-On Textile Waterproofing

Updated : 09-Sep-20

OrganoTex

OrganoTex® Textile waterproofing is a biodegradable water repellent product applied on garments or textile products by spray-on. The product re-impregnates garments and textile products where the previous impregnation has been worn-out or impregnates garments or textile products that never has had water repellent properties. The product re-creates the water repellent ability of the textile without changing the color, texture or breathability of the fabric, which is important for all types of functional garments.
