Nature was the inspiration.
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, Nanotex 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, Nanotex 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 Nanotex 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
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.
Are you ready for what’s next?
