Crypton's team of research and development scientists continue to innovate and improve efficiencies in Crypton's core technologies.
- All new Crypton fabrics (Crypton Home, Crypton contract fabrics, Nanotex) are PFAS-Free as of October 1, 2022
- Tested and verified by third party testing method AATCC189
- All Crypton fabrics continue to either meet or exceed rigorous standards
- Hydrocarbon Side Chains are added to create repellency, mimicking the natural repellency and self-cleaning ability of leaves (biomimicry).
- Partially sourced from renewable resources. (Around 40% content from renewable resources)
- Achieving high-level fluorine-free performance required not only optimizing chemistry but also utilizing physics to create highly effective and permanent performance characteristics
How does the new PFAS-Free formulation perform?
- It maintains the gold standard performance that has made Crypton a trusted name in the industry
- All Crypton fabrics allow for removal of oil-based liquids and stains
- Crypton pioneered the industry with trademarked "C-Zero technology," which has become a commonly used reference when speaking about fluorine-free fabrics
- Our proprietary PFAS-Free technology has been available in successful C-Zero fabrics collections since 2018 (Mayer Fabrics, Momentum Textiles, Clek Car Seats)
What was Crypton's performance technology prior to October 1, 2022?
- All Crypton fabrics were produced using 0.1% of fluorine or less
- Fluorine is the only known natural element used for oil-repellency
- Crypton has always pushed to stay ahead of the curve in evolving technology, using the least amount of chemistry possible, for the best possible performance benefits.
- Blended in the USA with full compliance to Federal (EPA, OSHA) and state regulations
What makes Crypton different from other performance fabrics?
- Team of in-house scientists constantly innovating and improving products, calibrating protection based on fiber content and texture for each fabric
- 20+ years in the performance category
