The Sustainable Solution for Outerwear is Teflon EcoEliteTM (7/23/18)
The Chemours Company (Chemours) (NYSE: CC), a global chemistry company with leading market
positions in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts and chemical solutions, announced today its latest
innovation expanding its commercial product offerings of non- fluorinated DWR products with the
introduction of ZelanTM R2 PLUS. ZelanTM R2 PLUS contains 30% renewably sourced plant-based
raw materials and is focused on delivering a high level of durable water repellency for all substrates.
Work is underway in the development of other non-fluorinated offerings to provide additional stain
release benefits. These renewably sourced finishes help brands in minimizing the environmental
impact of the textile supply chain.
ZelanTM R2 PLUS compliments ZelanTM R3, the chemistry for Teflon EcoEliteTM, the first renewably
sourced finish that provides high durable water repellent (DWR) performance and is up to three
times more durable than existing non-fluorinated repellents. ZelanTM R3 is bluesign® approved and
is an approved input finishing chemical for GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified textile
products+. ZelanTM R3 also contains 60% renewably sourced, plant-based raw materials*.
ZelanTM R3 is commercially run at over 200 mills in more than 30 countries and today over 24
million consumer articles feature and promote the Teflon EcoEliteTM brand. The Teflon EcoEliteTM
brand can be found on consumer products ranging from high-end ski wear to every day outerwear.
Huntsman Textile Effects is the global distributor for all ZelanTM products.
“ZelanTM R3 has quickly established itself as the benchmark non-fluorinated technology in the
market today. Its outstanding performance and sustainability credentials have earned wide
acceptance by brands and retailers the world over,” said Lee Howarth, Global Marketing Manager for
Finishing at Huntsman Textile Effects. “We are very excited to again partner with Chemours on the
introduction of ZelanTM R2 Plus which we strongly believe will further strengthen our position as
industry leaders in the transition to non-fluorinated technologies.”
