Not all nanotechnology is Green Nanotechnology. The GreenShield finishes are based on the practice of Green Nanotechnology, which promotes manufacturing and product development through sustainable thinking and precautionary principles.
We recognize that nanotechnology is a relatively new area of scientific study; little is known about the long term risk of nano-materials including their toxicities, potential for emissions, and their environmental and ecological impact. This is why the principles of green nanotechnology are so important.
GreenShield provides outstanding water and oil repellency with the lowest possible fluorochemical level; no other treatment can compete.
GreenShield ZERO is Fluorine Free providing excellent water repellency to textiles, does not change the hand of the fabric, and can be used on many materials. GreenShield ZERO contributes to the LEED Healthcare credit for Furniture and Medical Furnishings.
