UNIQUE DENDRIMER TECHNOLOGY FOR POST-IMPREGNATING TEXTILES

RUCO® 1514 is a high effective and fluorine free water-repellent for impregnating textiles of all fibre types. It is especially suitable for maintaining water-repellent effects (post-impregnation). The mode of action of RUCO® 1514 is based on the innovative and patented dendrimer technology by RUDOLF BIONIC FINISH® ECO. Hyperbranched, hydrophobic polymers with ramified structures like in tree tops orientate in an orderly manner on the textile and crystallise on specifically adusted comb polymers. The optimum arrangement of many of these functional elements is highly effective. Additional boosters (crosslinking agents) ensure the optimum attachment and durability on many fibre substrates.
