Dow Corning DWR-7000 Soft Hydro Guard



Published April 5, 2012
Dow Corning DWR-7000 Soft Hydro Guard from Dow Corning is a silicon-based technology that enables global textile brand specifiers to equip their sports and recreation apparel with excellent water repellency and improved softness.

“In contrast to current fluorocarbon technologies, silicon-based emulsions contain no fluorine, solvents or APEOs,” says Joanna Giovanoli, marketing manager, Dow Corning Textiles. “Silicones exhibit no adverse toxicological effects or evidence of bioaccumulation and have no effects on soil-living species or on crop growth.”
