Applied to textiles at the mill, Stormproof/Breathable OmniBloq is designed to deliver highly durable, water repellence.Bolger & O’Hearn Specialty Chemicals, (B&O) will showcase DSM resins, introduce their new corporate website and continue launching B&O’s new Stormproof/Breathable durable water repellent OmniBloq at Techtextil North America 2019, which takes place from 26-28 February in Releigh, NC.

In September of 2018, Bolger & O’Hearn entered an exclusive agreement to represent DSM Coating Resins in the US. DSM is a leading provider of innovative resins for sustainable coatings systems, including waterborne resins for the textile and related markets. DSM’s high-performance polyurethane and acrylic systems are designed to provide lamination ability, abrasion resistance, fire retardance, moisture transmission and several other value-added properties to textiles.

In addition to the standard DSM textile product line, Bolger & O’Hearn will also provide fully customised and formulated coatings, finishes and adhesives based on the DSM product technology. You can learn more about B&O’s exclusive agreement with DSM Coating Resins on the B&O website.

“We’re excited to promote our new distribution relationship with DSM to the Techtextil audience,” said Shaun O’Hearn, President of Bolger & O’Hearn. “Techtextil is an ideal venue to discuss DSM’s textile coating products. We’re also looking forward to discussing industrial applications for our powerful new Stormproof DWR, OmniBloq.”

Applied to textiles at the mill, Stormproof/Breathable OmniBloq is designed to deliver highly durable, water repellence that does not compromise fabric hand, product design or fabric breathability. OmniBloq has been engineered to keep the rain off without the bulk or stiffness of a laminate. OmniBloq is also recyclable, non-PFOA and provides protection against oil and stains. End applications include stormproof outdoor apparel, such as with Flylow Gear ski wear, workwear, boat covers, awnings and any other textile that needs heightened DWR protection.

Bolger & O’Hearn is also launching a new corporate website at Techtextil. Introduced In January, the new website provides a comprehensive look at their products, sustainability programmes and Innovation Lab.
