What is Repeltex?
Repeltex is a superior, water-repellent performance material made from a feather-light, 100% woven polyester that is treated with a signature, multi-layer, waterproof PU (polyurethane) back coating.
Using a liquid application process, Repeltex’s waterproof PU back coating is permanently affixed to the polyester fibers of the fabric, making the fabric’s waterproof properties extremely long lasting.
Beyond the waterproofing benefits, our PU coating also strengthens the polyester fabric making it supremely durable and both tear and abrasion resistant. All of this performance is maintained within a whisper-light, silky fabric that is still breathable and comfortable to wear.
Stringently tested for safety, Repeltex is certified standard 100 by OEKO-TEX. With Repeltex, superior comfort and performance is combined with trusted safety.
What is PU Coating? The PU in PU Coating stands for polyurethane, an elastic polymer, which is commonly applied in either liquid or film form to athletic or performance fabrics to enhance water-repellent capabilities.
