EverShield Zero is applied to fabric in a textile finishing process at a mill. It is applied using the dip, pad, and dry method. EverShield Zero is diluted with water and pumped into a bath. The fabric runs through the bath, through a padder, and then through an oven. The rolls of the padder subject the fabric dipped in EverShield Zero to significant pressure, squeezing the extra liquid from the fabric. The oven dries the fabric and cures it, binding the chemistry to the base fabric. Drying will depend on oven temperature, fabric weight, and wet pick-up. After the fabric has dried of excess water, the surface of the fabric should reach at least 302-320 °F (150-160 °C) for a minimum of 30-90 seconds to allow for the EverShield Zero to properly cure. If unable to measure fabric surface temperature, a good recommendation is a curing cycle of 320-340 °F (160-170 °C) for 60-120 seconds.
