TSG Finishing’s DEFEND® brand now 100% plant-based technology
Posted January 27, 2021
HICKORY, N.C. – TSG Finishing LLC announced that 100 percent of its DEFEND® brand of water- and stain-repellent finishes now utilizes plant-based technology.
Through the efforts of TSG’s technical and development teams, DEFEND will continue to excel in repelling both water and oil-based products while carrying the label of being “plant-based.” Utilizing and perfecting these applications, TSG can report this technology reduces the amount of PFAS (fluorinated chemical), also known as C6, by one-third with the new formulation.
Employing a USDA-certified, bio-based product has been key in the progression of the plant-based formulation.
“Phase one was launched in September of last year,” said CEO Brian Rosenstein. “We knew that Phase two would take a bit longer due to its being a one-sided spray process instead of straight immersion system.”
He added: “Hats off our to technical team for getting the job done ahead of schedule. It is refreshing to be able to say that 100 percent of our DEFEND offerings now include USDA-certified plant-based technology.”
As it continues to open more doors, the DEFEND® family of options is available to all seeking an application of “your fabric + our protection”.
TSG Finishing has more than 120 years of textile finishing expertise, with steadfast options from which to choose.
