Nano-Tex Introduces Fortify DP An Innovation In Wrinkle Free Technology

Oakland, CA - Nano-Tex, a leading fabric innovation company providing Nanotechnology-based textile enhancements, announced recently a new wrinkle free technology that provides a high level of wrinkle resistance while preserving fabric strength and integrity.

Wrinkle free textiles are highly desirable due to the neat appearance and convenience they provide today's time-pressed consumers. But there is a downside… the chemistry and processing methods used greatly reduce a fabric's tear and tensile strength. This means there are certain fabrics and garments that are not candidates for wrinkle free technology, such as lightweight fabrics or slim fitting garments.

Alternatively, oftentimes a fabric needs to be over-engineered or "beefed up" only so it can, in turn, withstand the fiber degradation caused by traditional wrinkle-free solutions.

Either way, current technologies either do not work on all fabrics OR the brand/retailer has to incur additional expense just to accommodate the destructive properties of wrinkle-free chemistry…until now.

Nano-Tex's new Fortify DP technology can achieve a higher level of wrinkle free performance because the nano-scale molecular structure can penetrate more deeply in the fiber resulting in improved wrinkle-free performance.

Additionally, Fortify DP uses a longer and more flexible cross-linking chain which reduces fiber stress under tension, thus reducing the significant strength loss associated with traditional wrinkle-free chemistry.

Now you can have great wrinkle-free performance without spending unnecessarily to over engineering your fabrics.
