Alexium Announces Roll-Out Of Cleanshell Nanoscopic Coatings

Alexium Rolls Out Cleanshell™ Process

Perth | Posted on January 26th, 2011

Alexium is announcing the development and commercial roll-out of its Cleanshell™ textile treatment process, an advanced process for water- and oil-repellent treatment of textiles.

This process offers unparalleled material performance. It provides exceptional liquid repellency while preserving the breathability, hand and drape of the fabric. The Cleanshell™ process has already produced textile industry leading repellency for a number of liquids, including gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, cooking oils, acids, solvents, oxidizers, and water.

What distinguishes the Cleanshell™ process is the thorough encapsulation of the fabric fibers with a nanoscopic coating to protect the entire fabric. Cleanshell™ coatings are durable, withstand heavy usage and launderings, yet are extraordinarily light weight. Aside from product performance benefits, users of Cleanshell™ can also benefit from the ease and versatility of the process. This treatment can be applied to a wide range of synthetic fabrics (e.g., polyester, nylon, ballistic protection and flame retardant aramids), natural fabrics (e.g., cashmere, cotton, wool), and blends of these.

Cleanshell™ is based on Alexium's patented RST process which uses microwave technology to apply the textile treatment rapidly via an energy efficient method. The Cleanshell™ process will be made available via licensing to commercial partners and applied to Alexium's Cleanshell™ product lines.
