Fluorine-Free Protection from Spills

Our experts developed a remarkable solution for our clients who are looking for fluorine-free protection from water-based stains. Crypton’s other finishes and fabric technologies round out our offerings to stain and moisture protection, and C-Zero Plus offers better water-based stain resistance than any other fluorine-free finish on the market. Awarded Interior Design magazine’s Best of Year Award for Green Innovation.

Why C-Zero Plus?

Stain resistance is an important element to consider in the longevity of a product because it reduces the need for replacement, and consequently the generation of waste, over time. Thus, an environmentally responsible fabric solution involves some level of stain resistance to ensure a lengthy and fruitful product life. There are many steps along the way to environmental excellence, which is why we’re proud to offer C-Zero Plus as another excellent option for responsible specifications!

Where To Use C-Zero Plus?

While we’ve found that C-Zero Plus is a top performer in its class of fluorine-free finishes, it’s not right for every application. C-Zero Plus is great at repelling drink spills but is not resistant to oil-based stains, so it should only be considered for select environments to ensure the best results over time.

How To Clean C-Zero Plus?

C-Zero Plus can be cleaned using a mild soap solution. Just like other fabrics, all soap residues must be washed from the surface to ensure the finish continues to perform. It may take a little more elbow grease than cleaning our Crypton, INCASE, or Nanotex treated fabrics, but in the class of fluorine-free finishes, C-Zero Plus is the best!
