Eco-Friendly GreenShield Technology Provides Water- and Stain-Repellent Finish
- Jun 03, 2008
As part of its “Eco Intelligence Initiatives” to encourage sustainable manufacturing processes and products, Victor Group Inc., has announced its exclusive distribution of GreenShield, an ecological nanotechnology-based stain and water repellent fabric finish. Developed by G3 Technology Innovations, LLC (G3i), GreenShield uses a new technology that reduces a fabric’s flurochemicals by up to 10 times. Using one-third the amount of chemicals of traditional finishes, GreenShield is certified by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) for compliance with the indoor air quality emission requirements of Section CA 01350 and as a low fluorocarbon treatment. When GreenShield is applied to Victor’s Eco Intelligent Polyester, the fabric is certified Cradle to Cradle Silver by MBDC, a product and process design certification firm. Products designated Cradle to Cradle comprise recycled and/or recyclable materials. GreenShield is currently the only high-performance finish that allows a fabric to retain its Silver rating.
