For the last 25 years, Fiber ProTector® has been used to protect some of the finest textiles in the world. Applied to the interiors of the most advanced corporate jets to the most luxurious European hotels, Fiber ProTector® has protected museum pieces and even Embassy and Heads of State textiles.
Fiber ProTector® has been trusted to provide superior protection to the most discerning clientele worldwide and does not affect the natural properties of the surfaces to which it is applied. It uses advanced nano-technologies to preserve the beauty and cleanliness of textiles while maintaining its breathability, original color, and texture. Our products can be applied to nearly any type of fabric, carpet, or rug.
Fiber ProTector® is EPA-rated, safe, non-toxic, and non-allergenic. Fiber ProTector® proprietary formula contains no harmful fluorocarbons, known as PFCs, PFOA, or PFOs. It is the only protection product in the world to earn the EnviroSeal® certification! EnviroSeal® is an evaluation and certification for environmentally responsible maintenance products for carpets, rugs, and furnishing fabrics.
Resists Soiling and Staining
Fiber ProTector®'s nanotechnology-based formula makes a penetrating bond. Although no protection product will last forever, it will provide superior protection for many years and will survive many professional cleanings.
It reduces surface tension. This prevents damage-causing particles from attaching to fibers and reduces fiber-to-fiber contact, leading to fiber wear. It creates an invisible shield against oil and water-based stain-causing liquids and soil types. It even provides a reduction in damage-causing UV exposure.
The Fiber ProTector® formula can be used on virtually every type of fibrous material, including wool, cotton, nylon, polyester blends, silk, natural suede, synthetic suede, velvet, sisal, and even tinsel.
Fiber ProTector® Testing
Mechanical Bacteriostat Testing - Fiber ProTector® makes fibers uninviting to bacteria and viruses by mechanical means, not pesticides. This independent test shows a consistent 99.9% reduction rate in the growth of bacteria; Staphylococcus Aureus and Kiebsiella pneumoniae.
UV Protection Testing - Fiber ProTector® acts like a sunscreen for your textiles. UV damage can damage fine natural textiles. This test shows UV protection vs. no protection. On a scale of 1-8, the seemingly small increment is A LOT of protection!
VOC Emissions Test - The Norwegian Building Research Institute tested samples of Fiber ProTector® to show that no VOCs are emitted.
FAA Flammability Report - Fiber ProTector® has been tested to FAR 25.853 requirements over and over by FAA-designated flammability test labs to show a reduction or no effect on flame propagation in the aircraft cabin environment.
Fluorocarbon Content - Fiber ProTector® has been tested to show that no Fluorocarbons, known as PFCs, PFOA, or PFOs, exist on treated materials.
DNV Certification - DNV is an International Accredited Registrar for Marine Vessels. This Certification Statement shows that professionally applied Fiber ProTector® will not impair the flammability of DNV-certified vessels.
Air Permeability - Natural fibers need to breathe to stay healthy. Many surface protection products try to "seal" off the fiber. This test shows that fibers can still breathe naturally when applied with Fiber ProTector®.
Corrosion Test - This test shows it is safe to apply our Fiber ProTector® leave behind treatments in and around installed airframe structures such as seat track and frame attach points. Once cured, Fiber ProTector® has been proven to be chemically inert.

Is Fiber ProTector® safe for my home?
Yes. Fiber ProTector® is EPA-rated, safe, non-toxic, and non-allergenic. Fiber ProTector® proprietary formula contains no harmful fluorocarbons, known as PFCs, PFOA, or PFOs. It is the only protection product in the world to earn the EnviroSeal® certification! EnviroSeal® is an evaluation and certification for environmentally responsible maintenance products for carpets, rugs, and furnishing fabrics.
Will Fiber ProTector® change how my fabric or fiber smells, feels or looks?
No! After Fiber ProTector® dries and cures, there is no odor. Due to the advanced nano-technology utilized in Fiber ProTector® products, there will be no discernable difference in the look or feel of your fibers.
Can Fiber ProTector® be applied to heirloom fabrics and fibers?
Yes. Fiber ProTector® can be applied to all of your prized heirloom fabrics and fibers. Fiber ProTector® does not "seal in" stains or dirt. Applying Fiber ProTector® will only extend the lifespan, benefit cleaning, and prevent future staining of your heirloom fabrics and fibers.
When can I utilize the items I've had a Fiber ProTector® product applied to?
The length of time will depend on which one of our products is utilized for your project. Our solvent-based product dries the fastest, usually within one hour. Most items are returned to light, regular use about 4-6 hours after application. Fiber ProTector® Delicate, Light, and Water-Base product could take longer. Complete protection is achieved after the product has cured for 24 hours.
Does Fiber ProTector® have an odor?
For our entire line of protection products, there is no scent once cured. Fiber Protector's family of solvent protection products have a discernible odor when applied. The intensity of this odor will depend on which of these protection products is utilized for your project. Our premium protection product utilizes medical-grade Isopropyl Alcohol as a carrying agent, dissipating very quickly. In contrast, our Delicate and Light protection products has a slight odor. Our water-based product has no discernible odor at all. Ventilation and air-movers can accelerate the process.
Will Fiber ProTector® make my textile fibers last longer?
Fibers treated with Fiber ProTector® are up to 60% more resistant to wear and abrasion because the soil must wear off the protection before causing wear on the fibers. Similarly, fibers must wear off the protection before they can wear on each other. This "wear resistance" promotes longer fabric life and less frequent need for replacement.
How does Fiber ProTector® prevent the growth of mold mildew and bacteria?
Fiber ProTector® is created with nano-tech particles that reduce the surface tension of the individual fibers. It creates an invisible yet breathable shield around each fiber, providing an effective barrier against organic fluids, soil, and dust. The unique and proprietary Fiber ProTector® system is engineered to mechanically produce a bacteriostatic surface to resist the growth and spread of pathogens, mold, and mildew. This is of particular value for individuals with allergies, asthma, or a weakened immune system when subjected to recycled indoor air.
Is Fiber ProTector® a disinfectant?
Fiber ProTector® does not claim to be a disinfectant; however, Fiber ProTector's premium solvent-based protection product utilizes medical grade Isopropyl, an EPA-listed disinfectant. Items sprayed with Fiber ProTector® and allowed proper dwell time have had a highly effective disinfectant applied. This is an added benefit of the Fiber ProTector® application.
What types of fabrics and fibers can Fiber ProTector® be used on?
The application of Fiber ProTector® enhances virtually all types of fibrous items' natural characteristics. Some types of fibers include wool, cotton, nylon, polyester blends, silk, natural suede, synthetic suede, velvets, and even sisal! Fiber ProTector can also be applied to almost any porous material you would like to keep the natural look without adding a sheen to the treated item's surface.
Are Fiber ProTector® products safe for wool, silk, or other delicate fibers?
All of the Fiber ProTector® family of protects are Silicone free! Silicone has been shown to produce a residue when applied to natural wool that can cause rapid re-soiling of fibers when exposed to oil-based contaminants. Our Fiber ProTector® products are tested and approved by the WoolSafe Organization and, therefore, safe to use on wool. A Fiber ProTector® application is the best way to protect your silk, viscose, bamboo, or other delicate fibers from damage causing moisture.
Are Fiber ProTector® products safe around my children and pets?
Fiber ProTector® has been tested to be non-toxic to humans and pets and is chemically inert once cured. Fiber ProTector® has been used in healthcare facilities worldwide, in air ambulances, and in nursing homes to help keep textiles clean while keeping patients safe. It is a perfect way to protect your valuable textiles while protecting your family and pets.
