4-in-1 Multi-Functional (Water-, Oil-Repellent, Soil- and Wrinkle-Resistant) Finishing

4 in 1 multi-care finishing technology can realize the water/oil/soil repellency and wrinkle-free treatment of textiles in one step. Multi-care finishing is a new technology which introduces “elastic crosslinking” to the Lotus Nano repellent system. Elastic crosslinking can not only bring wrinkle-recovery function to the textiles, but also minimize the strength-loss. Moreover, crosslinking effect can remarkably improve the wash fastness of Lotus Nano repellent functions to achieve excellent and durable multi-functional properties.


A dip-pad-cure process is preferable for the application of 4 in 1 multiprotective finishing agent with the following conditions for reference only: one dip and one pad with solution pick-up about 50-60%, then cured at 160 for 1.5 min (if lightweight cotton) or 175 for 1.5 min (if heavy cotton).

Technological breakthrough

  • Excellent water/oil/soil repellency and wrinkle-free treatment of textiles in one step, simple operation process and lower energy consumption.
  • Durable treatment with excellent multi-care properties.
  • Provide good wrinkle-recovery functions to the fabrics with ultralow strength-loss.
  • Applicable to cellulosic fibers, such as cotton, linen, viscose and their intertextures, the treated fabrics have steady form, very soft handle and good breathability.
  • Applicable to white textiles, can maintain the original shade and whiteness.
  • A water-based environment friendly system, non-toxic, nonflammable, non-corrosive.
