Is Crypton® a fabric?
Yes! It is an engineered textile made with pre-tested and approved fabrics with specific fiber and construction requirements to ensure the name Crypton means consistent performance. Approved fibers are permanently transformed with stain and odor protection through an immersion process, plus an impenetrable moisture barrier that protects the fabric from spills.
Can any fabric be "Cryptonized"?
No. All of the fabric we work with must meet specific fiber and construction requirements so we’re sure to deliver consistent performance. Before accepting a fabric from our partners’ mills for processing, samples go through a rigorous testing process in our state-of-the-art lab to ensure these requirements are met. It’s how we achieve the proven performance Crypton is known for.
What are the differences to other laminated products?
Crypton’s technology is built into all of our fabrics. They are engineered with an integrated backing that will never separate, permanently enhancing the performance of the fabric. In fact, Crypton’s technology is so stable, it has been deemed a solid surface by the EPA. Unlike Crypton fabrics, laminated fabric can delaminate, creating a pocket between the surface fabric and the lining, where moisture can pool, compromising the performance of the fabric and allowing germs to grow.
Is Crypton® easy to clean?
Yes. Crypton’s exceptional protection from stains, odors, moisture, and mildew makes cleaning a breeze! Liquid spills bead up and can be blotted off with a clean, dry cloth. Most new stains come off with a clean, damp cloth and water. For more stubborn stains, a mild soap and water mixture is very effective.
