No. Using Fiber ProTector does not change the look or feel of any treated fiber or fabric. Occasionally, slight over-application of Fiber ProTector or accelerated drying (with fans or heat) may cause treated particles to stiffen. If this occurs, simply vacuum the affected areas and the carpet or fabric will feel normal again.
Absolutely! Fiber ProTector was originally designed in 1996 to protect fine fabrics, fibers and much more. It has been tested and approved by the WoolSafe® organization and therefore safe to use on wool. Our water-based protector has even earned the WoolSafe® EnviroSeal of Approval, which is the only protection product in the world to earn this prestigious award. http://www.enviroseal.eu/
This is a long-lasting treatment, which will last years before Fiber ProTector needs to be reapplied. With wear from dirt and traffic, the surface level protection will wear away over time. Even after many years of use, the treated item will still retain the protector that has penetrated inside the cross-sections of the fiber, unless our product has been “washed out” by a high pH cleaner. Normal professional deep cleanings using a pH neutral or Fiber ProTector approved product will not affect the protection levels in the treated item.
Under average room temperature conditions (70°F, 50% Humidity), items protected in your home should be dry in about 1 hour. Always be sure to check before walking on treated areas or using treated items. Longer dry times could occur under the following conditions: colder temperatures, more humid conditions, or heavy applications. Providing for proper ventilation for the product will also provide a quicker dry time in most conditions. Once it is dry, Fiber ProTector becomes inert.
Fiber ProTector works great on most fabrics! Natural fabrics like silks, wools, cottons, sisals and viscose are treated with ease. Even synthetic fibers like nylon, polyester, polypropylene & acrylic can be treated with Fiber Protector to take your stain-resistance to the highest level possible. (It is always good to test in an inconspicuous spot for color bleeding.) We do not recommend using on plastics or vinyl. On upholstery, check furniture manufacturer's care and warranty information. Examples of usage for Fiber ProTector include: sofas, chairs, auto interiors, RVs, boat interiors, outdoor cushions and umbrellas, mattresses, dresses, shirts, shoes and purses, silk ties and blouses, delicate fabrics, area rugs, carpeting, quilts, throw pillows, table linens, hats, gloves & much more!
Fluoropolymers are used in many common products such as artificial heart valves, contact lenses, textiles, carpeting, and non-stick frying pans. Our products are free of PFOS and PFOA, and there are no negative consequences for humans or animals. Fiber ProTector is an inert and non-allergenic material.
