GreenShield is a proprietary nanoparticle-based textile finish developed by BigSky Technologies. With the C6 fluorocarbon chemistry and amorphous silica nanoparticles, GreenShield is used to repel oil-based stains and water-based stains. There is also a fluorine free option, GreenShield ZERO, which is designed to resist water-based stains.

GreenShield and GreenShield ZERO treated textiles are applicable for a wide range of categories including commercial and residential interiors, automotive, mass transportation, performance outerwear, outdoor products, and the marine industry. These treated textiles can be cleaned with detergents, solvents, or diluted bleach. Barrier backing can be applied as a separate process if desired.
