Fabrics with GreenShield + Balance Barrier have: 1. GreenShield stain-resistant finishing 2. antibacterial finishing 3. enhanced abrasion 4. moisture barrier backing.
Performance Textiles ( GreenShield + Balance Barrier): GreenShield is a topical finish that utilizes 7-10 less fluorocarbons than similar finishes and releases no VOC emissions. The technology is based on amorphous silica nano-particles that permanently adhere to a fabric in a mesh network that prevents particles from becoming airborne. The manufacturing process also requires lower temperatures, and therefore less energy, compared to similar finishes. GreenShield is certified by SCS (Scientific Certification Systems) as a Low Fluorocarbon Treatment product and is the only stain resistance finish that is eligible for use on a MBDC Cradle to Cradle Certified product. BigSky Technologies LLC produces GreenShield®, an environmentally friendly stain-resistant fabric finish.
