Super clean and super green, welcome to the high tech world of Crypton Fabrics
The world is a different place today and our collective priorities are shifting. Technology is not so much about changing the planet, but saving the planet. Crypton is a company that saw the writing on the wall and decided to do something positive for the environment. That’s why they set out to invent some of the most environmentally friendly, reliable and high-performance textile products in the world.
Live Healthy. Live Beautifully. Live Clean. That’s the Crypton way. This labour of love began back in 1993 when founders Craig and Randy Rubin set out to create a new generation of stylish fabrics that were moisture-resistant and easy-to-clean, yet were soft and comfortable. From the basement of their Michigan home, a textile revolution was born. By offering a fabric – not a vinyl or plastic – that was capable of resisting stains, moisture, odours and bacteria, they produced the perfect solution for the health care market. Following this initial success, they rapidly expanded into some of the world’s finest restaurants, hotels, cruise ships, schools and government complexes.
But what makes Crypton fabrics so green and so clean? Unlike applied coatings or topical treatments or laminates, the amazing properties of Crypton fabrics are actually integrated into every fibre. This prevents moisture, bacteria and stains from penetrating the fibres and allows foreign substances to be removed from the microscopic pores. Most stains can simply be wiped away. The result is a very strong fabric that continually resists spills, stains, moisture, mildew and bacteria. The Crypton Green product is the only performance fabric that can claim certifications from both Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) and Environmental Choice Australia (ECA). Plus it’s virtually indestructible!
What about manufacturing the process? Crypton Green production is powered by renewable energy (via renewable energy credits) and is carbon-neutral (with verifiable emission reductions). After much research and testing, the company has developed the most environmentally intelligent processes for high-performance textiles currently available through modern technology and chemistry. The Crypton Green production method uses carefully selected fibre types:
- 50-100% recycled fibre
- Heavy-metal-free polyester
- Wool with heavy-metal-free dyes
But are the fabrics stylish? Relax, your home or business will relish the design elements built into this amazing product. Crypton fabrics are not only available in a generous range of colours and textures, they are kid-friendly, pet-friendly, allergy neutral and completely stain resistant. With their inspiring range of fabrics, you are empowered to create warm, inviting spaces that combine great performance with great functionality. Crypton offers a breathable, comfortable alternative for those high-traffic areas where vinyl was once viewed as the only option.
