Vaude extends PFC-free outdoor range

Written by John Mowbray

TETTNANG – German outdoor brand Vaude has said 95 per cent of its products will be PFC-free for its spring/summer 2017 Collection following a series of tests with different materials to ensure the new alternatives meet its performance requirements. The testing involved collaboration with chemical suppliers and producers, with Vaude testing over 300 substances in its laboratory as well as carrying out intensive wearing tests in wet conditions. Vaude says it aims to completely dispense with the use of fluorocarbons (PFCs) in DWR fabric finishes, or water-repellent treatments of textile surfaces by 2020.
