OSM Shield formulates high-performance fabric finishes that are safe for both people and the environment. We utilize a combination of PFAS-free, PFC-free, PFOA-free, and PFOS-free chemistries to customize formulations based on fabric composition and customer performance requirements. All chemistries are classified as non-perfluorinated compounds and have passed related third-party perfluorinated compound toxicology screenings. Additionally all OSM Shield fabric finishes are ZDHC and REACH dossier compliant, and aligned with the vision and mission statements of the American Chemical Society.

Our treatments can be applied to fabrics, yarns, and finished garments utilizing our proprietary and customized application processes, achieving unprecedented performance and durability. OSM Shield is proud to be the leader in the industry when it comes to applications knowledge and innovation.

OSM Shield's EVO is a line of non-fluorinated, non-PFAS repellent fabric finishes that do not have perfluorinated compounds in the monomer backbone of the chemistry which classifies these repellent finishes as non-perfluorinated compounds. OSM Shield's Wik Release, CLEAR, and ZERO chemistries are also free of harmful PFAS, PFC, PFOA, and PFOS compounds.

OSM Shield has an offering of other speciality high-performance finishes, including wicking formulations, multi-performance applications, and cationic dye pretreatments for cellulosic fabrics.
