Product Information

Careguard-7808 is a new generation water and oil repellent fluorocarbon based on C6 Chemistry. It is a dispersion of fluoropolymers. It imparts very high water and oil repellency on all substrates. It gives very high oil repellency with better isopropanol rubbing fastness than other fluorocarbons. It works well on nonwoven and automotive fabrics. It can be applied by pad foam and spray technique. Cross-linker is required for durability i.e. Ecolink (Conc).
