Crypton is committed to sustainable textiles.

We protect and defend against stains, spills and odors and never leave a mark.

We promise more than beautiful, high-performance fabrics, recognized in the industry as the best in category.  We promise best in environmental practices, upholding our responsibility and commitment to continuously innovate the highest-quality fabric and performance with the absolute lowest environmental impact.

We are not about more chemistry, we are about more responsible technology.

Less is more:

Crypton’s patented technology is customized to each and every yard of fabric to deliver the highest performance with the softest hand.    Our team of scientists calibrate the amount of protection needed based on the fiber content and texture of each fabric, with less being more responsible to our end-users and the environment.

To further certify transparency and material reporting, Crypton works with Toxnot and other third-party organizations such as Mindful Materials to ensure that all customers who use our fabrics – whether for healthcare, hospitality, or residential use – we want our customers to understand exactly what they’re receiving as a final product.   We seek to educate and empower consumers with new knowledge so they can make truly informed decisions within their design process.

You can count on Crypton.

Experience PFAS free technology.

Our PFAS free technology has been painstakingly researched and optimized by Crypton scientists over more than five years, employing:

Sustainable chemistry and physics.

  • Hydrocarbon Side Chains are added to create repellency, mimicking the natural repellency and self-cleaning ability of leaves (biomimicry).
  • Partially sourced from renewable resources (Around 40% content from renewable resources).
  • Achieving high-level fluorine-free performance required not only optimizing chemistry but also utilizing physics to create highly effective and permanent performance characteristics.
  • Permanent protection sealed into every fiber for the life of the fabric using the same patented process that Crypton and Nanotex perfected.
  • The meticulously balanced formulation ensures maximum durability and unmatched cleanability.
  • Zero halogenated content (Fluorine, Bromine, Chlorine).
  • Formaldehyde-free.
  • The highest possible standard of fluorine-free performance.

Certainty in our fluorine-free, proprietary technology.

  • Made in our own North Carolina facilities for quality assurance and control.
  • GREENGUARD Gold certified.
  • 2-year warranty for Crypton Home Fabric, 5-year warranty for Crypton Fabric.
