Every day, soil is naturally absorbed into the center of the wool fiber, hiding the dirt from the naked eye. Often, we don't realize a rug is dirty because we can't see the dirt. Unlike a typical fabric protector than only "coats" the fiber, MicroSeal® penetrates the wool fiber to its inner cortex and protects it from the inside out. MicroSeal® not only protects from permanent stains and wear, but also from sun fade damage (nearly 100% according to 25 years of field and laboratory testing).
12 Competitive Advantages of MicroSeal®
- SUN INHIBITORS
MMicroSeal® has sun inhibitors in our product which reduces or totally eliminates sun fading on fabrics. This in itself is a major advantage because the Idaho Falls sun can bleach fabrics in a very short time. TO OUR KNOWLEDGE, we do not know of any fabric protector on the market that has this capability.
- COMPLETE FIBER PENETRATION
MicroSeal® penetrates the entire fiber for a more durable, long lasting bond that cannot be broken or removed by creasing, pinching or cleaning the fabric or carpet. Most fabric protectors only coat the outside of the fiber with a hard finish sealant which wears off easily through normal use and cleaning.
MicroSeal® will also wick or carry throughout the fiber while most other fabric protectors will only protect where the spray actually comes into contact with the fiber. When MicroSeal® is sprayed on a square inch of fabric or carpet, it will carry or wick out 3 to 6 inches.
- ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE
MicroSeal® is considered the most environmentally safe fabric protector on the world market today. Unlike fluorochemcal or PTFE based fabric protectors, our trade secret formula has an EPA rating of GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe). It is also classified as non toxic, non-allergenic and biodegradable. It is manufactured in a carbon free USA facility.
- MICROSEAL® IS COLOR FAST
MicroSeal® will not change the color, texture or feel of any type of fabric including wools and silks. Other types of fabric protectors which are classified as coaters will alter the color, texture and feel of the fabric.
- CLEANING PROOF
MicroSeal® treated fabrics and carpets can be professionally cleaned without removing our fabric penetrant. Most other fabric protectors need to be reapplied after each professional cleaning. It does not stop soiling, but it will make cleaning much easier and faster.
- MOLD AND MILDEW PROOF
MicroSeal® treated fabrics and carpet will reduce or eliminate mildew and molds by sealing the fiber from the inside out. Other protectors make no claim about protecting fabrics against these microbes and problems.
- FIRE RETARDANT
MicroSeal® treated fabrics reduce flame spread by 14%. This is one reason that MicroSeal® is approved to treat the interior fabrics on aircraft. Most fabric protection competitors do not pass the FAA regulations to treat aircraft.
- CREATED FOR NATURAL PRODUCTS
MicroSeal® was originally created to protect wool, silk, suede and leather products in Europe. It also can be applied to synthetics. Competitive protectants in the U S were made to be used mostly on just synthetics.
No product has a broader use than MicroSeal®.
- SMOKE RETARDANT
Not only will MicroSeal® decrease the dangerous effects of fire, but it also decreases the ability of fire to produce smoke by 23%. These two advantages may save a life of a loved one.
- NO WORRY ABOUT OVERSPRAY
MicroSeal®, while not intended can be accidently over sprayed during application on wood, glass, tile or metal without damage or worry. It can be easily wiped up and if not, it does not leave a residue which would damage another surface type.
Because MicroSeal® is not a coater as other protectants, it seals from the inside out of only a fibrous target. Therefore, it will not encapsulate a non-fibrous particle as in dirt. A product may be sealed with MicroSeal®, even before cleaning. Its application will make any subsequent cleaning much easier and the cleaning will not remove MicroSeal®.
- RETENTION OF FIRE/SMOKE RETARDANT
Any normal cleaning of a fabric or carpet will not remove the benefit of the sealed in retardantfor decreasing the dangers of fire and smoke.
