Every human being leaves its marks, especially on daily use items that are picked up or touched often. Especially on textile surfaces, hand and fingerprints in combination with dirt and dust particles leave an unpleasant, greasy dirt film, which is very difficult to clean.
NanoSphere Plus, developed by Schoeller Technologies AG, the business unit for technologies at Schoeller Textil AG, works on the basis of a functional chain. Textiles are equipped with a matrix finish to reduce the capillary effect in the textile’s fibers. Especially unpleasant sebum residues and dirt that are often released by finger and handprints are less absorbed by the fabric and can be easily wiped away.
Non-washable textiles that are often touched by hands or fingers, or fabrics that are in direct contact with the skin, benefit most from this new technology. This makes NanoSphere Plus ideal for woven fabrics and synthetic leather or synthetic suede for sports equipment bags, covers of electronic devices, head phones, loud speakers or other items in the field of interior equipment.
Beside the excellent protection against finger and handprints, textiles with NanoSphere Plus are additionally water and oil repellent, abrasion resistant and extremely durable. The finishing technology rarely affects the look or feel of the fabric.
