GradeBaseSolids %Application
PM 3705Hydrocarbon25Provides durable dynamic water repellency (DWR) to many synthetic fabrics. PM-3705 can be used as the sole DWR product.

In combination with fluorochemical DWR products it can improve both the oil and the water repellency durability on nearly all types of synthetic fibers (including microfiber), as well as some blends with cellulose.
PM 3888Hydrocarbon25Designed to provide excellent and durable dynamic water repellency (DWR) to many synthetic fabrics. It can be used on many fiber types and provides protective performance while maintaining fabric breathability.
PM 3869Non-fluornited, solvent-based25PM-3869 imparts dynamic water and aqueous stain repellent properties on a variety of leather substrates for garments, shoes and upholstery. The product has also been used successfully on textile substrates.
PM 2688Hydrocarbon25Designed to provide excellent durable dynamic water repellency (DWR) to many synthetic fabrics. It can be used on many fiber types and provides protective performance while maintaining fabric breathability. Additionally, PM-2688 has been used on polyester/cotton blends.
PM-2688 offers excellent initial DWR performance as well as durability to repeated home launderings.
PM 2740Fluorinated25When fabrics are properly treated with PM 2740 most stains are generally removed with one home laundering. For stubborn stains, additional washes may be required for complete stain removal.
PM 226Non-Fluorochemical203M Protective Material PM-226 is a non-fluorochemical product that imparts durable water absorbency (wicking) and stain release properties to 100% polyester fabrics or yarns.

PM-226 will, in some cases, marginally improve fabric softness and may enhance dye bath lubrication.
