AsahiGuard E-SERIES products are fluorinated water/oil repellents that contain no PFOA (at or above detection limits), longer chain PFCs or their precursors. Drawing on fluorine’s extraordinary properties, these specialty chemicals provide excellent protection and durability against water, oil and dry soil without changing the texture, color or breathability of a fabric or material. Textiles treated with AsahiGuard E-SERIES products resist dirt and, when they do become dirty, are easy to clean. That’s because the very low surface tension of AsahiGuard E-SERIES products makes oils, stains and water bead rather than soak into material. When applied, these coatings can keep materials such as fabrics, paper, leather, carpet and uniforms looking new longer. They can also be used in combination with other agents such as starches, paper strengthening agents and fixative agents.
AsahiGuard E-SERIES products have appropriate clearances in the U.S. (Toxic Substance Control Act), in the EU and in Japan (Chemical Substances Control Law). They also comply with Food Sanitation Law in Japan and are approved by the FDA in the United States and BfR* in Europe for food packaging use.
