A group of esteemed jurors and Material ConneXion employees chose EverShield to be displayed in Material ConneXion's flagship library in New York City, as well as online in Material ConneXion's comprehensive database.

Material ConneXion is the world's largest membership-based library of unique, innovative and sustainable materials, with seven full-service locations worldwide.  Each month, 40-50 new materials enter the Material ConneXion library after being reviewed and evaluated based upon specific criteria.

EverShield is a Durable Omni Repellant (DOR) that deflects water, food, oil, and so much more. DORs have evolved from DWRs because DWR fabrics can only repel water.  The fabric protection establishes a polymer coating that encases each fiber of the material, significantly increasing durability through a complex, protective matrix.  The coating that is created maintains performance levels of long chain fluorocarbons while utilizing more acceptable six-carbon fluoropolymers.  Click here to learn more or call at 800.764.9549.

EverShield uses an environmentally friendly formula using C6 chemistry and it is also water-based with no VOCs.  Unlike some DWRs, EverShield treated fabrics can be washed at standard temperatures. No super-heated wash or drying cycles are needed to maintain superhydrophobicity or oleophobicity. Cooler water and cooler dryers means less energy consumption and lower operating costs. EverShield outperforms DWRs by repelling water in addition to oils, food products, mud, concrete, ice and other aqueous solutions.
