G3i Finish uses ten times less fluorochemical

Abstract:
G3 Technology Innovations, LLC (G3i) a company dedicated to environmental causes, announces the development of a textile finish that mimics the Lotus leaf. GreenShield is the next generation of textile finishes. It is manufactured using green nanotechnology principals.

Commercial textiles - upholstery fabrics, panel fabrics, draperies and other textile products having the G3i finish use ten times less fluorochemical to achieve resistance to staining by water and oil. The G3i technology utilizes the principle of micro and nanoroughness, undetectable to human touch, but causing water and oil to float on a pocket of air rather than penetrate the fabric.
