Durable water repellents (DWRs) and stain-resistant agents represent a growing part of our finish business at Bolger & O’Hearn and we offer many different types. Our newest DWR, OminBloq(TM), provides advanced Stormproof/Breathable water repellency that goes far beyond that of typical DWRs. Altopel F3 is our most recent breakthrough in green chemistry and it provides all the water repellency of a C6, yet is fluorine-free. Shell Tech 6 Elite is one of our premium DWR lines. It yields a 100 spray/#6 oil rating on synthetics after 100 home launderings and is the ideal choice for long-term protection.
