HB* SiO2 Coating Technology -
Fluorine Free Liquid Glass Coatings

This stunning technology is completely fluorine free yet provides outstanding hydrophobicity. The range is suitable for use in all areas but specifically, it is designed for use within the DIY/Retail and Commercial sectors where ease of application in a wide range of environments is essential. The coatings perform in a very similar way to our world renowned Liquid Glass coatings in that they create a protective hydrophobic layer which is exceptionally easy to clean.

*HB = hyperbranched silicon dioxide

Key Attributes

  • Free from any form of fluorinated agents, essential for use in certain countries
  • Free from solvents: Alcohol can be added if required for certain applications e.g. leather coating

„Hybrid Nano Silica Fusion Technology“ (HNSFT) with self-healing characteristics

Certificate Logo

The fabric industry has been searching for a replacement for PFOA based fabric coatings and now we are able to offer such a technology. Our new coating Hybrid Nano Silica Fusion Technology (HNSFT) with self-healing characteristics is a PFOA /PFOS free technology which actually out performs standard C8 fabric coatings.

It offers exceptional performance in all areas:

  • Washable up to 100 cycles
  • Stunning hydrophobicity
  • Oleophobicity rating of 8 on some fabrics
  • UV stable
  • Exceptionally durable
  • Full performance (spray rating100) after 20 household washes due to EN ISO 6330” (lab accredited to the AATCC 22 standard)
