The objective of Action A2 was to carry out a pre-screening of the functionality and environmental impact of the selected DWORs.
As a result of this actions a report on the state of the art of the technical and environmental data has been produced. The report studies the technical performance of the chemicals according to AATCC test methods for oil repellency and water repellency. To study the environmental data the selected DWOR products where separated in three groups: conventional DWOR based on long-chain fluorocarbon (C8) and then the alternatives based in C6 chemistry, finally a group of products which are not fluorinated.
