Fabrics – Footwear

PFOA-free liquid-proof properties are continually sought to keep the wearer’s feet dry in inclement weather.

Current Issues

Wearer to be able to walk and run through wet environments without getting their feet wet.

Whole footwear reduced water weight uptake and decreased drying times.

Differentiation from incumbent solutions

Liquid based durable water repellents (DWRs) are only applied to the fabric upper and so although may produce good repellency to the fabric, don’t prevent water ingress or the wearers feet from getting wet.

P2i's Solution

Splash-proof is applied to the entire footwear product, maximising repellency to all the materials and seems to vastly reduce water weight uptake and reduce drying times.
