Crypton has introduced C Zero, a non-fluorinated performance fabric offering protection from water-based spills as well as liquids such as sodas, coffee and wine. Crypton is a producer of eco-friendly performance fabrics featuring stain, water, odor and microbe-repelling technology. C Zero is an environmentally friendly, non-fluorinated fabric option. The fabric does not use fluorinated chemistry, allowing it to have a minimal impact on the environment. C Zero is a factory-applied process.
The repellent technology has been incorporated into the fabric via a factory-applied process whereby the entire fabric is immersed, treating every fiber. The chemistry is cross-linked for durability using high-temperature and industrial dyeing.
Crypton is based in Michigan. It is the only textile solution in the world creating a new generation of stylish fabrics that are moisture-resistant and easy-to-clean, yet soft, comfortable and breathable. Crypton opened in 1993. By offering a fabric – not a vinyl or plastic – that was capable of resisting stains, moisture, odors and bacteria, Crypton proved to be the perfect solution for the health care market. Following this initial success, Crypton solutions rapidly expanded into some of the finest restaurants, hotels, cruise ships around the world, as well as government complexes, schools and health care facilities. There are more than 20,000 patterns of Crypton fabric available today.
