High Water RepellencyHigh Water Repellency

'UNNURELLA' has adopted the Super Durable Water Repellent Fabric ('Dantotsu Water Repellent Fabric') developed by Komatsu Matere. With its high density, the best water repellency by far has been achieved. Raindrops are repelled and will not remain on the umbrella.
It is said that fluorinated finishing agents (type C8) used for water repellency has higher performance than waxes or silicone-based finishes. The United States Environmental Protection Agency, however, announced a plan in 2006 to eliminate the emission and inclusion in products of PFOA※ by 2015. In accordance with the plan, a switch from type C8 fluorinated finishing agents to type C6 was put into practice. With the acceleration of this trend, manufacturers around the world has been focusing on the development of 'PFOA-free' or 'fluorine-free' water-repellent fabrics. Likewise, Komatsu Matere's unique processing technology has enabled the development of a 'PFOA-free' water-repellent fabric that does not only remain a high level of water repellency, but also maintains its durability.
※PFOA stands for perfluorooctanoic acid, a kind of fluorine compounds, which has been identified as an environmental or safety concern due to its potential toxicity when consumed over a long period of time.

Compared to conventional products, the Super Durable Water Repellent Fabric ('Dantotsu Water Repellent Fabric') has a smaller contact area due to its formation of an obtuse angle of collision between the fabric and the water droplets. This makes it easier for the water droplets to roll off the fabric and results in a more outstanding drainage.

The Super Durable Water Repellent Fabric ('Dantotsu Water Repellent Fabric') is highly durable, maintaining its water repellency for a long period of time. Generally, water-repellent fabrics lose their efficacy after each usage, whereas 'UNNURELLA' has more long-lasting water repellency.

Characteristics of the Fabric

In general, water-repellent fabrics lose their efficacy through everyday use due to raindrops, dust in the air and the residues left on the surface of the fabric by fingers or hand creams when wrapping the umbrella. Despite this fact, 'UNNURELLA' retains its performance due to its exclusive high-density fibres. Not incorporating heat-sensitive waterproofing agents, by applying heat with a hair dryer or iron, together with regular washing, the water repellency will last as long as possible.
