Founded in 1998 by Dr. David Soane, former polymer chemist and Vice Chairman of the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of California at Berkeley, the company’s team of scientists set out to replicate the natural water-repellency of plant surfaces and animal coats.
Today, Nano-Tex is a leading fabric innovation company providing nanotechnology-based textile enhancements to the apparel, home and commercial/residential interiors markets. Purchased by soft-surface technology leader Crypton, Inc. in 2013, Nano-Tex is headquartered in Bloomfield Hills, MI with operations across the United States, Asia, India and Europe. To date, more than 80 textile mills worldwide are utilizing Nano-Tex treatments in products sold by more than 100 leading brands Worldwide.
We were the first company to apply nanotechnology to fabrics, and our technology sets the industry standard. We use nanotechnology to transform the molecular structures of fibers and create fabrics that offer unsurpassed performance and comfort. By working at the nano-scale, our textile enhancements provide amazing functional improvements without changing the natural characteristics of the fabric, like hand and drape. And, since our technologies permanently bond with the individual fibers of the fabric, our durability is unsurpassed.
Our innovations create exceptional performance in everyday items which serve to enhance appearance, provide protection, improve comfort, increase longevity, and make textiles easy to care for and maintain. Our current portfolio of products addresses 5 key textile technology segments, including repellency/stain resistance, moisture management, odor control, static elimination and wrinkle free.
Some of our creations are in the market today. Some will be created to meet the evolving needs of tomorrow. All will surprise you.
