Created in 2011 by the Ben Touch Group, the Pr. Phobe laboratory, whose company bears the same name, has developed several innovative products in the home improvement sector: colorless water repellent, antifoam and hydro-oleofuge. Another range of protection, cleaning and surface maintenance products has also been launched for the general public, traders and industrial B to B.

The aim of Pr. Phobe is to discover and develop, through its team of researchers directly integrated into the eponymous R & D laboratory, new innovative and ecological surface protection products to improve the daily lives of everyone. between us. The priority ambition is to delay the aging of treated materials and surfaces, drastically reduce the number of waste and the use of water and energy, in other words: to protect our planet.

The revolutionary waterproofing Pr. Phobe Textiles & Leather, launched in April 2016 at the Paris Fair, is now present in more than 1,000 points of sale in France. In addition, many mass-market stores have already expressed their desire to integrate the product in their shelves in 2019.

After more than 5 years of research, the laboratory’s researchers have also developed other innovative surface protection solutions, including the Anti-Graffiti range for glazing, plaster, concrete and stone. The prospects for development, with the influx of customers from all over the world, are flourishing.

The sites of Pr. Phobe:

Innovate by taking inspiration from nature

Our researchers have taken inspiration from nature to create innovative ranges of protection and surface functionalization. For example, drops of water that pearl on lotus leaves inspired our hydrophobic products.

A first innovation, already a success

The first product to come out of the lab for the public audience is “Textile and Leather Waterproofing”, already distributed in nearly 500 stores in France.

Customized products

The aim of the laboratory is to respond precisely to demands for protection: the industrial cleaning sector, for example on public buildings, will find great interest in anti-graffiti products and self-cleaning glazing.

Integration in an industrialization process

Formulas developed in the Pr. Phobe Laboratory can be integrated on demand with industrial manufacturing processes to add value to products.
