Crypton Waterproof Fabric Intelligence

Crypton waterproof fabric has revolutionised the Hospitality, Healthcare and Aged Care industries around the world. In fact, we were their first export customer in 1993 and the first to bring this revolutionary waterproof fabric to designers and architects in Australasia. Designers weren’t restricted to using vinyl in aged care projects any more! Instead they had the creative freedom to add pattern which was functional as well as decorative.

Crypton’s patented fabric and moisture barrier technology offers superior performance over any other fabric in its class. A full waterproof barrier is applied to the back of the fabric and a water repellant finish to the face of the fabric. Furthermore, there is exceptional protection from stains, odours, moisture and mildew whilst also preserving the comfort of a breathable textile!

Initially there were just print-based fabrics with two different substrates. Now there are beautiful jacquard designs as well as amazing plains including velvets and textures.

Crypton Green

Both Crypton and Crypton Green fabrics use green chemistry and eco-friendly processes. The only difference between Crypton and Crypton Green is the fibre content of the fabric.
Crypton chemistry does not use halogenated FRs, including PBDEs, and is GREENGUARD Certified helping to create healthier indoor environments.

Crypton Care – Safety Data Sheets

Bleach Cleaning Cryptons

With EPA-approved Crypton Disinfectant & Deodorizer there should be no need to subject fabric to the harsh cleaning methods of bleach; however, we know from experience that every facility has preferred cleaners and cleaning practices.

  1. Before bleach-cleaning, make sure fabric is dry and has been vacuumed, and that the space is ventilated.
  2. Prepare a 10% bleach solution in water. NOTE: chlorine bleach concentration can vary from manufacturer-to-manufacturer. Please read your bleach product label to determine the correct solution to prepare.
  3. Test the solution in an inconspicuous location first before applying over the rest of the fabric.
  4. Apply the cleaning solution using a misting spray bottle. Do NOT oversaturate Crypton Wall when applying the cleaning solution.
  5. Work the solution into the affected area by lightly scrubbing the area with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Make sure to work from the outside of the stain inward so as not to spread the stain and rinse your sponge or brush frequently.
  6. Allow cleaning solution to linger for 10 minutes as specified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
  7. Rinse thoroughly to remove all bleach residues from the fabric.
  8. Allow fabric to air dry.
