Self-cleaning textile finish

NanoSphere is a self-cleaning finish technology composed of nanoparticles that form a fine structure on textile surfaces. Water or substances such as oil or ketchup simply run off the NanoSphere surface, and any residue can easily be rinsed off with a little water. Textiles with NanoSphere treatment require less frequent washing and can be washed at lower temperatures. They also exhibit increased abrasion and weather resistance. The function of NanoSphere is retained even after numerous washing or cleaning cycles. NanoSphere has been developed in accordance with the Bluesign standard, guaranteeing the highest possible exclusion of harmful substances.
