Nu Water Repellent Treatment
Developed in partnership with Revivex, Nu is a heat-activated treatment that that helps to restore garments' DWR (durable water repellency), improving their performance and extending their lifetime. The short chain fluoropolymer formulation is designed to optimize the original DWR treatments on Arc’teryx GORE-TEX®, softshells, and windshells. Nu also works well on fabrics in packs, footwear, and other technical equipment.
The spray-on format was chosen for its superior performance and more efficient use relative to wash-in alternatives.
