NOTTINGHAM – Nanomaterials manufacturer Promethean Particles has joined a consortium of companies exploring the development of safer water repellent textile treatments.

With increasing concern over the health implications posed by conventional fluorocarbon-based solutions due to the nature of their byproducts, increasingly stringent legislation has borne a new generation of water repellent technologies.

Promethean uses a novel continuous-flow process for manufacturing nanomaterials in liquid dispersion. Using wet chemical techniques (hydrothermal or solvothermal synthesis), coupled with continuous reactor systems, it claims to be able to produce a wide range of chemistries at various production scales – in some cases with capacities up to 1,000 tonnes per year.
