Daikin has introduced a new line of protective and repellent products offers the best of both worlds: superior fluorine based water and oil repellency and stain release in a C6 platform which enhances the environmental performance of the protective chemistry. Daikin's Unidyne TechnaGard Series maintains the superior level of performance the market has come to expect from Daikin's current Unidyne Series products--C8 based products that have risen to become the industry standard. The new technology provides excellent and durable repellency and general stain protection and soon, stain release, for a broad spectrum of stains and soiling on an array of textile, carpet, nonwoven, and other substrates. A product is also in the regulatory approval process for paper treatment
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has rigorously reviewed Daikin's Unidyne TechnaGard Series of protective and repellent products in 2007, and has given approval for manufacture and sales.
Unidyne Business Manager Mike Ladd noted that, "High performance is certainly the hallmark of the traditional platform, but our customers felt that they were spending too much time explaining levels of PFOA contained therein. With Daikin's new C6 platform, customers can concentrate on selling the added value of stain and soil protection, an area where resources are much better spent."
