Isn’t it fascinating how ducks can dive under water and re-emerge with their feathers still dry? Like all waterfowl, ducks produce an oily secretion that allows their plumage to repel water. The ecorepel® technology transfers this natural water repellence to textile surfaces.

Just like a duck’s plumage, ecorepel® imitates this natural, water-repelling protection and ensures that textiles stay dry and clean.
ecorepel® is based on long paraffin chains that wrap themselves in a spiral around the individual fibers. This reduces the surface tension so that water droplets and even aqueous dirt with a much higher surface tension simply run off. Breathability is not affected, and the feel remains pleasantly soft.
