TSG Finishing LLC has announced that 100% of its Defend brand of water and stain repellent finishes now utilize plant-based technology.

Through the efforts of TSG’s technical and development teams, Defend will continue to excel in repelling both water and oil-based products while carrying the label of being ‘plant-based’. Utilizing and perfecting these applications, TSG reports that the technology reduces the amount of PFAS (fluorinated chemical) also known as C6, by one third with the new formulation.

Employing a USDA certified bio-based product has been key in the progression of the plant-based formulation. Brian Rosenstein, CEO comments: “Phase one was launched in September of last year. We knew that Phase two would take a bit longer due to it being a one-sided spray process instead of straight immersion system.” Rosenstein adds: “Hats off our to technical team for getting the job done ahead of schedule. It is refreshing to be able to say that 100% of our Defend offerings now include USDA Certified plant-based technology.”

“As we continue to open more doors, the Defend family of options is available to all seeking an application of ‘your fabric + our protection’,” the company concludes.
