Spiro-Tex is a waterborne, solvent-free coating concept tailored to the modern demand of brands. It allows you to meet high performance levels, provide ultimate consumer comfort and comply to increasing environmental regulations. One by one achievable without making any concessions.
Meet our unique technology
Spiro-Tex’ technology is able to combine breathability, waterproofness and windproofness in a sustainable manner. This technology makes a textile breathable by allowing water vapor molecules to be transported from the inside of the textile to the outside of the textile. In addition, Spiro-Tex’ technology prevents water and wind to penetrate through the textile from the outside. Making the textile water- and windproof.
Note: Whereas a breathable fabric can transport water out of the textile. Air permeable fabrics let air into the textile. Meaning, air permeable fabrics are not windproof. This is not the same as breathability.
Soft handleSpiro-Tex is able to meet a very soft handle resulting in an uncommonly flexible fabric providing more comfort to the wearer.
Solvent freeNo solvents are present in the dispersion and fabrics which leads to lower emissions and safer work environments.
Breathable waterproofSpiro-Tex transports water vapor from the inside of a textile to the outside allowing breathability for the wearer as well as preventing penetration by water and providing sustained water protection in very wet conditions.
High transparencySpiro-tex coats a very clear film onto the fabric.
Wash durabilitySpiro-Tex lasts up to 40 wash cycles. This has been proved at the TANATEX laboratories using ISO 6330 4N.
SustainableCertified for sustainability!
You are only three steps away from applying Spiro-Tex in your production process. See for yourself in this video!
Yes, we bring added value. A lot.
We don’t just offer solutions, we love to co-create them! Together with you, our experts and Spiro-Tex we can achieve the optimum fabric.
Spiro-Tex can meet high performance levels of breathability through water vapor transmission, waterproofness through water pressure resistance and windproofness through low to no air permeability.
As Spiro-Tex offers a solvent-free solution to generating high-performance breathable waterproof coating you contribute to a greener textile industry while complying to sustainable requirements.
Future proof production
Meet our expert
The development of Spiro-Tex is a milestone! All we wanted was to just change the state-of-the-art of breathable fabrics combining the needed properties: breathability, waterproofness and windproofness. By using a combination of available processing technologies and our newly developed binder, we were able to be the state-of-the-art change!
