How it’s made
First Crypton© fabrics are immersed in a patented formula, which encapsulates each fiber, then the application of impenetrable back coat finishes the process. Fabrics must go through a trial phase and meet stringent test criteria before final approval for a Crypton finish. Crypton finished fabrics offer enhanced physical properties that perform well against abrasion, tearing strength, breaking strength and seam slippage.
Crypton fabrics pass the standard upholstery flammability codes such as Cal 117, UFAC, BIFMA and NFPA 260. To meet additional fire codes such as Cal 133, IMO RES 16-52A, Boston and New York Fire Codes, additional fire protection treatment is required.

Clean Crypton fabrics with Water, Solvent, Bleach or a special Crypton cleaner. For specific information about cleaning, please refer to the manufacturer website or on the back of the fabric card.
