Special Treatment

Water-repellent treatment

The textile is wrapped in a permeable or impermeable hydrophobic layer, which suppresses the wettability of the textile, making it waterproof, water-repellent, less likely to crease and easily washable. The corresponding properties of the modified fabric can be verified in our laboratories (test head, spray test).

Fireproofing treatment

The fabric is coated providing the required degree of fireproofing according to use. The incombustibility can be tested in our laboratories.

Oil-resistant treatment

This treatment increases the resistance of the material to substances with oil-like properties.

Acid-resistant treatment

With the help of this treatment material has increased resistance to acids.

Antimicrobial treatment

Sanitized® Silver is a top-class antimicrobial treatment from the renowned Swiss company, SANITIZED AG.

Insect-repellent treatment

In cooperation with SANITIZED AG, GUMOTEX, a.s. has developed a special treatment for textile materials. Due to the active ingredient, insects are not able to detect a “target”, not being able to see or smell their victim. This insect-repellent textile treatment is highly resistant to washing and chemical cleaning. It fulfills the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 and has been tested in the Swiss Tropical Institute’s laboratories.
