C-Zero is a proprietary treatment produced by the company Crypton. This patented fluorine-free stain resistance treatment for textiles comes with optional silver ion order resistant and integrated moisture barrier (C-Zero Plus). C-Zero protects products from water-based stains and also prohibits the growths of bacteria, virus, odor, mold, and fungus with the optional Silver ion technology. Applying C-Zero will cause little or no change to the textile’s color and will not harden the fabric, allowing it to maintain a soft hand. Additional to the benefits C-Zero provides, C-Zero Plus adds an impermeable barrier preventing liquids and stains from penetrating into to your fabric. Both C-Zero and C-Zero Plus can be used for indoor and outdoor seating. C-Zero and C-Zero Plus can be applied to flat woven, knits, textured, and printed fabrics, as well as synthetic and natural fibers.
