Always Dry is a super-hydrophobic nanotechnology product line, developed for a wide range of applications. Always Dry protects all absorbent surfaces, including textiles, leathers, wood, or stone against fluids and stains of any density.
The Always Dry formulas contain Nano polymers which bond on a molecular level with any absorbent surface and form an invisible protection layer with highly hydrophobic properties. Any fluid in contact with the treated surface cannot adhere to it anymore, it simply beads and rolls off.
The main advantages of our method are:
For the protection of textiles and leathers, two Always Dry formulas are available, one water based and one solvent based. Our third Always Dry formula, optimized for wood and stone, has been reinforced with nano-scale additives allowing for outdoor use and preventing the development of mold, bacteria or other algae on the surface of all outdoor wood and stone.
Always Dry is user friendly and can be applied in a variety of direct methods. Depending on the size of the surface to be treated, it can be applied with a simple brush, a roller, or a spray gun. The full range of properties are obtained after about 24 hrs.
All our Always Dry formulas are non-toxic, environmentally safe, and non-flammable when dry. They leave zero residues and are 100% invisible, odorless and don’t alter the texture of the substrate.
Our solvent based formula for textiles and leathers, also known as Always Dry textile and leather was developed for the protection of all textile, leather and suede articles such as clothes, shoes, bags, sportswear, outdoor equipment, etc.
Always Dry textile and leather covers each individual fiber with an invisible protective layerwhich prevents liquid and resilient stains, such as red wine, to infiltrate in the fibers. Liquid in contact with the treated article is easily removed with a moist cloth and will not leave any permanent damage to the object. The treated article will be protected for 18 months to 2 years.
As the protection layer is sensitive to detergent, we recommend to wash items treated with this formula only with warm water without detergents.
The water based formula is more appropriate for the protection of very absorbent types of textile, such as carpets, rugs, linens, sofas and other furniture textiles. As this product is more resistant to detergent, it is generally recommended for the protection of textiles or fabrics which are frequently washed or exposed to chemical cleaning agents and will last in excess of 20 washes.
Due to the formula’s resilience to chemical detergent the product is ideal for use in the service industry where cleaning and protection of textiles (furniture, linens) is extremely important.
‘Water Based for Textiles’ is available only in bulk purchases by registered businesses.
Always Dry – Wood & Stone is a water and oil repellent impregnation agent for the protection of all outdoor wood and porous natural stone applications such as wooden patio furniture, pool side wood and stone, fences or other exterior wood and stone surfaces.
The formula contains additional anti-algae, anti-fungi and anti-bacterial additives, with UV blocking properties which do not dissolve in water. After a drying time of about 24 hrs, the treated surfaces remain fully protected for 2-3 years against the development of water sensitive bacteria, molds and algae (green) in outdoor environments.
