A normal fabric just won’t cut it anymore.

No guessing. There is just one to choose.

We’ve made it simple for you. To be 100% certain your fabric is disinfectable, specify Crypton Barrier Fabric. It’s the first and ONLY fabric deemed disinfectable by the EPA.

EPA sets forth its only fabric disinfectability standard in a simple 2-part system:

  1. Crypton Barrier Fabrics are disinfected when…
  2. treated with EPA-approved Crypton Disinfectant & Deodorizer.

When combined, the two create a powerful pair. Crypton has created an engineered system of disinfection for high-use, high-abuse environments or any setting where Crypton is installed.

Follow the Science.

Crypton Fabric is the only smart strategy.

Like everything else we do in design and in life to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19, we must simply follow the science.

Watch the video to view how to find the EPA lists of disinfectable surfaces, disinfectants, and specifics about Crypton’s unique disinfectability. If you’d like to see for yourself, simply place our EPA Registration Number (10324-85) or our Distributor Product Number (1034-85-75190) in the EPA Registration/Product Number Search on the EPA website.

What about antimicrobials? | Crypton

What about antimicrobials?

There is a lot of dialogue about antimicrobials. With Crypton, you have the assurance of our EPA-approved silver-ion antimicrobial protection. A natural element, it is used in cosmetics, medicine, clothing, bedding, and more. Why? Because it stops the growth of odor-causing bacteria. It is permanent and non-leaching. It is an added level of clean and protection needed for today’s interiors.

What’s the difference?

Sanitization vs. Disinfection

The words sanitizer and disinfectant are often used interchangeably, but there are very clear and distinct differences. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has specific definitions for each. Sanitization reduces bacteria but doesn’t necessarily ‘kill’ bacteria and viruses. Disinfection kills both bacteria and viruses.

Buzzwords are confusing. Let us make it simple.
Sanitize = kills bacteria
Disinfect = kills bacteria and viruses
Sanitization vs. Disinfection | Crypton
Crypton Disinfectant & Deodorizer

Crypton’s disinfectant kills
viruses including COVID-19.

Only disinfectants kill both bacteria and viruses.

According to the CDC, disinfectants destroy or irreversibly inactivate viruses, bacteria, and fungus.

This means that disinfectants provide a higher level of demonstrable microbial load reduction than sanitizers. It means that disinfectants don’t just reduce, they kill bacteria, viruses, and fungus. Disinfection means a higher level of clean.

Did you know? The EPA has announced it’s Emerging Pathogen Policy which states that since Crypton Disinfectant & Deodorizer kills a similar ‘common coronavirus’ it is thought to kill the emerging (new) pathogen, COVID-19.

Soap & Water Clean

Cleaning surfaces using soap and water refers to the removal of germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces. It does not kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.

Clean is good, but disinfected is better.

What About Bleach? |Crypton

What About Bleach?

There are some risks when using bleach. Why chance it?

  1. EPA has no statement on the disinfectability of fabrics treated with bleach.
  2. Frequent bleach cleaning can damage fabrics and even lead to product failure.
  3. Bleach can clean, it can also sanitize, but bleach cannot disinfect soft surfaces. Bleach cleanable is just that – clean but NOT disinfected clean.
Don’t just clean. Disinfect!

Read the Label.

Label claims make a difference.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) carefully regulates all products that make a claim of killing an organism. The language and claims contained on each label must be supported with extensive scientific data that is submitted to EPA. These labels govern usage rates, applications and directions for use. End-users must ensure compliance with the label and should understand the meaning behind differing label claims.

Not all labels are the same…
  • Disinfectants have a specific registration and must be tested against every organism the disinfectant claims to kill.
  • Violating a label is a federal offence. Always to follow the label.
