Fiber-Shield® is an advanced stage liquid fluoropolymeric treatment that protects fabrics and carpeting from water-based and oil-based staining. It also resists abrasion from dry soil particulates.
Fiber-Shield® is not a surface coating. It's an example of the latest chemical technology utilizing crosslinking of fluoropolymers to fibers.
Each fiber is impregnated with millions of fluorochemical "umbrellas" that surround each fiber in a protective barrier. This protection does not readily break down with use or with cleaning, thus giving an extremely long-lasting protective affinity to the fiber structure. Fiber-Shield® becomes an inherent part of the fibers, and its protection is uniform throughout each fiber. Fiber-Shield® does not change the breathability of the fiber, nor does it affect color, texture, or flammability.
Fiber-Shield® Check List:
Fiber-Shield® provides stronger resistance against soil, oil and spills than any other protector available. Maintenance with Fiber-Shield® is a practical, cost-effective approach to getting the most out of any furnishing investment.
