DuPont Teflon fabric protector
Protecting against Dirt
Children, snacks, shoes, crayons and pets all make for memorable family car journeys, whether on holidays or everyday errands. But they often leave sticky stains on the car upholstery. To protect car seats from wear and tear and to keep them looking as new for longer, French carmaker Renault now uses DuPont Teflon fabric protector. The specially developed polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coating repels liquids, releases stains more easily, and keeps seat covers in Renault vehicles in pristine condition for longer periods.
The Renault fabrics meet Automotive High Performance Repel Teflon fabric protector Brand Assurance Program standards. Besides meeting initial water and oil repellency specifications, they have also passed rigorous abrasion testing.
Fabrics treated with Teflon can lower environmental impact because they entail less frequent scrubbing and suffer less wear and tear. Vehicle interiors look newer for longer, with lasting freshness and comfort, much to the delight of the owners. Here’s how it works: The invisible, odorless Teflon fabric protector forms a molecular barrier around each individual fabric fiber. This barrier lowers the critical surface tension of the fibers so that they repel most water- and oil-based liquids. The fabric is rendered water- and oil-repellent, without changing in color or feel. A single wipe is all that is required to remove dirt and liquid spills.
