GreenShield™ — an oil- and water-repellent textile finish manufactured by G3 Technology Innovations (G3i), a Pittsford, N.Y.-based manufacturer of environmentally friendly nanomaterials — has been certified by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), an Emeryville, Calif.-based third-party certification services provider and standards developer, as a Low Fluorocarbon treatment.
The finish — the first textile finish to receive the SCS certification — provides most fabrics with comparable or better repellency using on average eight times less fluorocarbon than conventional repellent finishes, according to G3i. It is made using proprietary waste-eliminating, energy-saving technology that utilizes water-based solvents.
