RepelShell® for Plastics and Resins

RepelShell® is a polymer additive that, when compounded into resins or polymers, creates highly repellent omniphobic surfaces. RepelShell can be used in a wide range of resins or polymers that require improved resistance to water, oil, or staining. Highlighted below are some potential applications.

unique high performance omniphobic additive

RepelShell® transforms the surface of almost any coating resin or plastic product by improving its repellency to water, oil, and stains. The possible applications are limited only by your imagination as RepelShell is compatible with a wide range of resins and polymers and injection molding and extrusion processes. One feature that makes RepelShell especially attractive is that it does not impact the mechanical properties of the host polymer or resin.

synthetic upholstery fibers and fabric

Textile fibers containing RepelShell can create fabrics with permanent stain protection for automotive and aircraft seating as well as home and office furniture.

omniphobic filters and membranes

The performance of non-woven filter media or microporous membranes can be enhanced significantly through the incorporation of Repelshell in the fiber or membrane polymer. Filters or membranes composed of RepelShell containing polymer will have reduced fouling, be easier to clean, and can be reused without a loss in efficiency or increase in pressure drop.

industrial coatings that reduce adhesion of hydrocarbon waxes

RepelShell can be incorporated into coating resins, enabling industrial coatings with omniphobic characteristics that are highly resistant to the adhesion and deposition of heavy hydrocarbons and waxy materials. Exterior and interior surfaces of pipes, ducts, and metalwork coated with these omniphobic coatings will stay clean longer, minimizing downtime and the need for routine cleaning.
