CAREGUARD-7653 | Suitable for low temperature curing

Product Information

Careguard-7653 is a new generation water and oil repellent fluorocarbon based on C6 Chemistry. It imparts durable oil and water repellency on various substrates like polyester, cotton, nylon, Aramid fibres and their blends without affecting the original hand of fabric. It gives very high oil repellency. It can be applied by pad, foam and spray technique. The performance of Careguard-7653 will be closer to that of C8 Chemistry Fluorocarbons. It can be also applied at low temperatures as compared conventional fluorocarbons.
