Dear Brian

Stain guard I think is a surface coating applied to fabrics to stop them
getting stained (I guess you knew that bit:-).....) I guess it works by
coating the fabric with some slippery component which stops the stain from
adhering to the surface. The only use I can think of in the RP industry is
the coating of powders to increase their flowability which is a real issue
for SLS/CGDM users. I would be interested to know if anyone has tried it as

Best regards

Hi folks,

        I was asked an odd questions today, I am to find out about the use
of StainGuard in the RP industry. I am waiting for follow up information
but thought I'd ask ahead of time, I may repose the question in the near
future. Does ANYONE have ANY IDEA what this could possibly be about. I
apologize ahead of time for any ignorance I have in this area :-)!
