Benefits of REPEL Technology Webbing in Fall Protection By Capital Safety
The Benefits ofREPEL™ TechnologyWebbing in FallProtection The Worldwide Experts in Fall Protection Prepared by Capital SafetyAustralia & New Zealand
REPEL™ Technology WebbingBenefits at a glance • Uniquely repels water and stains • High level of abrasion resistance • Easily cleaned, affording significantly improved hygiene benefits • Offers reliable protection and improved levels of comfort • The repelling function is maintained even after numerous washing or cleaning cycles • Ecologically clean textile finish developed in accordance with the bluesign® standard
REPEL™ Technology WebbingLessons from Nature •The leaves of certain plants always stay clean, because dirt cannot adhere to their finely-structured surfaces and is easily washed off by rain. •This natural non-stick and cleaning process, also known as the self-cleaning effect, is permanently transferred to the webbing surface by means of nanotechnology. •The result is REPELTM Technology Webbing - an ecologically clean textile finish, developed in accordance with the bluesign® standard.
REPEL™ Technology Webbing Based on bluesign® standard•This Nanotechnology is based on the bluesign ® standard and guarantees thehighest possible exclusion of substances which are harmful to humans or theenvironment and promotes the economical use of resources in manufacturing. Elimination of all problematic substances Nano particles fixed into a coating matrix First class working hygienic production conditions

REPEL™ Technology WebbingBackground: Nano technology The nanoparticles in the REPELTM finish form a fine structure on the textile surface. Water or substances such as oil or dirt simply run off the REPELTM Technology Webbing surface, any residue can easily be rinsed off with a little water.

REPEL™ Technology WebbingComparison of a conventional webbing surfacewith a REPELTM surface The classic surface: The contact surface of a water drop or a particle of dirt with the textile, and therefore the level of adhesion, is very large. As a result, water or dirt adheres to the textile. The REPELTM surface: Water drops or particles of dirt lie only on the peaks of the nano particles, and therefore have a lower contact area. Adhesion is significantly reduced, water runs off, dirt is repelled or can be simply rinsed off.
REPEL™ Technology WebbingWater and stains have no chance • Water and annoying stains have no chance on textiles with a REPELTM finish. • The nanotechnology-based webbing impregnation is characterized by a high level of water resistance, a natural self-cleaning effect and a durable protective function.
