Breakthrough in hydrophobic insulation

August 28th, 2014 / By: / Products

Down Decor introduces DownTek™ Zero.

Down Decor has introduced a breakthrough in hydrophobic insulation: DownTek Zero, a water repellent down that uses a nature-inspired approach to achieve water repellency without the use of perfluorocarbons (PFC).

Instead of PFCs, DownTek Zero uses natural triglycerides and fatty acids similar to the fats and oils found on the feathers of geese and ducks to coat the down, making it highly water-resistant. It is being manufactured in Europe in accordance with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 and can be used in the same products as the original DownTek, such as sports apparel, outerwear, sleeping bags and gloves.
