Huntsman Textile Effects launched the HIGH IQ® Repel brand assurance scheme to help mills, brands and retailers meet global demand for eco-friendly apparel with rain and stain protection. The program was built on a comprehensive range of non-fluorinated water repellents.
To create the HIGH IQ® Repel program, Huntsman Textile Effects combined its DWR finishes with technical support and application know-how. Huntsman has extended its range of PHOBOTEX® non-fluorinated DWR products with the introduction of PHOBOTEX® RCO water repellent finish. PHOBOTEX® RCO water repellent finishing meets the performance requirements of the HIGH IQ® Repel program.
The HIGH IQ Repel product line offers finishes in three categories for performance:
-HIGH IQ® Repel Everyday provides smart and economical eco-friendly protection against everyday stains for school, casual, athleisure and business wear.
-HIGH IQ® Repel Outdoor offers durable and eco-friendly protection for outdoor clothing that excels in all weather.
-HIGH IQ® Repel Extreme delivers extreme protection so that mountaineers, skiers and other adventurers stay warm, dry and comfortable, even in the most severe environments.
