WHAT ARE REPELTEC TEXTILE TREATMENTS?
Repeltec textile treatments are based on IR3535 an insect repellent commonly used in insect repellent lotions that are applied directly to the skin. IR3535 does not kill insects but keeps them at a distance. If a mosquito or other biting insect would come to land on a treated textile its nerve system receives a sort of flash bang, rendering the insect unable to find where to bite.
