DownTek ZeroPFC is fluorocarbon-free water repellent down that uses DWR technology inspired by nature. DownTek ZeroPFC stays dry 10x longer than untreated down, meaning those who wear it stay warmer and drier.

Environment

DownTek ZeroPFC uses the same proprietary application process as DownTek Water Repellent Down, which employs the use of nano-level lipids (one billionth of a meter) instead of a bath process – meaning no by-products in our water-recovery systems.

Innovation

DownTek Zero PFC was born from a commitment to providing our customers with the very best in performance down while keeping in mind the impact we have on the environment. DownTek ZeroPFC is a perfluorocarbon-free water repellent down that uses an innovative, nature-inspired approach to achieving water repellency. Instead of perfluorocarbons, DownTek ZeroPFC uses lipids - an idea derived from nature - to coat the down and render it highly water-repellent.

Performance

The wet out test determines the amount of time, in minutes, it takes for down to become fully saturated after being submerged into water. Samples of DownTek Water Repellent Down, DownTek ZeroPFC and untreated down were placed into separate jars containing approximately 10 oz. of water and shaken to full saturation. The results show that DownTek Water Repellent Down stays more than 35x drier and DownTek ZeroPFC more than 10x drier than untreated down.
