EterniTex® is a family of liquid treatments and finishes applied to textiles to enhance certain properties of fibers or yarns. These include improved abrasion resistance and reduced friction to extend product life expectancy.


EterniTex products are usually custom engineered for a specific application, attribute, and/or process. They are most frequently applied to technical textiles such as ropes, belts, nets, etc., either to extend their service life or make them more user friendly.


Because failure modes of textiles vary from application to application, the EterniTex we recommend is formulated for a specific application and the environment in which it must function.


For example, the formula for extending the life of a marine rope exposed to salt water may be very different from that engineered for a tree-climbing rope. We study the application and its working environment before recommending an EterniTex product.


This maximizes the ability of the EterniTex formulation to improve your product.


EterniTex products can offer:

  • release
  • low friction
  • resistance to abrasion
  • combination of strength and flexibility
  • resistance to UV light

EterniTex reduces friction and protects against degradation, increasing the working life of ropes and cordage by at least 25 percent.
