Zelan™ R3


Zelan™ R3 renewably sourced, non-fluorinated durable water-repellent finish. 

Based on a new technology from Chemours, this breakthrough product is the industry’s first and only renewably sourced water repellent treatment available today.

Zelan™ R3 finish effectively repels water and common water-based liquids such as fruit juice, hot coffee and red wine. It performs well on a variety of fabrics, including cotton, synthetics and blends, and is ideal for high-performance outdoor and outerwear fabrics.

The new finish contains 63% renewably sourced content derived from a variety of plant-based sources, carefully selected to be from non-genetically-modified (non-GMO) and non-food-source feedstock. Claimed to be up to three times more durable than existing non-fluorinated repellents.
