Crypton uses a patented system to encase textile fibers with a proprietary copolymer formula P385. Crypton offers stain, moisture, mold, mildew, bacteria and odor-resisting protection. It is not a surface treatment, but a textile that is transformed through a series of processes. Initially embraced by the healthcare industry, Crypton is also used in hospitality and contract industries and rapidly gaining popularity in residential markets.
Crypton does not contain any toxic chemicals, heavy metals or carcinogens that can be leached out with water or upholstery cleaners. Crypton Super Fabrics do not contain air polluting VOCs. Crypton uses no PFOAs (perfluorooctanoic acids) during its manufacturing process. Crypton uses no formaldehyde and does not contain vinyl.
