The following finishes are offered on many of our fabrics to enhance their performance,
allow for stain resistance and ease of cleaning.
Moisture Barriers can be applied to a number of our fabrics as outlined below. Moisture
barriers are often used for projects requiring protection from liquids, such as hospitals,
restaurants, public hospitality and educational areas. These state-of-the art, breathable
liquid barriers safeguard cushions, fabric, and furniture.
Crypton Green® is a fabric that is permanently transformed
with stain and microbial protection through an immersion process, and provides an
impenetrable moisture barrier that protects the fabric from spills.
Ease® is a stain repellant finish that is
applied to the yarns at the mill. It is not an after-treatment or a spray-on finish.
Because it is part of the fabric itself, Ease offers unparalleled water and oil repellency
with the added bonus of stain-release technology. Ease is PFOA (Perfluoroctanoic Acid) /
PFOC (Perfluoroctanoic Carbon) free.
GreenShield® is a low-fluorocarbon based
finish that is chemically bound to the fiber of the fabric. The nanoparticle technology
provides water and oil repellancy and stain resistance in a single finish. GreenShield
does not change the fabrics natural look or feel.
GreenShield® with Defend®
Defend® is a breathable Moisture Barrier
that can be added to textiles sold standard with GreenShield. Contact Customer Service for
Crypton INCASE™ is an advanced stain and
microbial-resistant finish. INCASE™ works at the molecular level to
increase surface tension, making liquids immediately roll away. INCASE™
allows both oil and water based stains to easily release from the fabric when cleaned.
It's perfect for when you need to resist spills, stains, odors and microbes, but do not
require a moisture barrier.
Nano-Tex™ technology builds breakthrough
spill resistance right into the fibers of the fabric, outperforming and outlasting
traditional stain resistance fabric treatment without changing the natural look and feel
of the fabric. It is undetectable and breathable.
We cannot add Nano-tex™ to a Crypton or
Incase treated product. The chemistries don’t work well together, but can add it to
other finishes. Some fabrics will have to be approved due to construction.
