Polartec's Non-PFAS DWR Treatments

Polartec announced the elimination of per- and polyfluoralkyl substances (PFAS) in its durable water repellent (DWR) treatments across its line of performance fabrics. The non-PFAS treatment comes as part of Polartec’s EcoEngineering initiative.

The new weather protection fabric treatment will be used in Hardface, Power Shield, Power Shield Pro, NeoShell and Windbloc products. It will also extend to fleece and insulation treatments on products like Thermal Pro and Alpha.
