The American company Crypton Fabric Intelligence from Michigan specialises in the clever coating of surfaces and thus ensures that textiles under high stress can be used for longer.

With the help of very complex finishing technology, textiles of all kinds are optimised for use in the medical sector or for contract furnishing. The materials supplied by Crypton are impermeable to water, oil and other liquids, inflammable, odour-neutralising, anti-bacterial and easy to clean. In the USA, the company has been well established since 1993 and its first branch with a production and storage facility was opened in Belgium in 2019: Crypton EU. Textile surfaces often need to be renewed after a maximum of two to three years, especially when used in hospitals or other medical facilities due to the intense use. In this respect, Crypton promises almost double the service life for such textiles and plastics. Before a material is processed by Crypton, it must undergo strict quality control checks. The company holds ‘Greenguard Gold Certifications’ – an emissions certificate for the use of products in schools and healthcare facilities.
