Compare MicroSeal


MicroSeal Vs. Common Fiber Protectors

1. Penetrates complete fiber and will survive many professional cleanings and normal wear
1. Does not penetrate fiber, but coats only where spray hits. Cleaning or normal wear easily fractures the fiber protection and you must pay for re-application
2. Reduces sunfading by nearly 100% on most fabrics – Independent laboratory verification
2. No protection against sunfading. If they make the claim, no independent laboratory verification
3. MicroSeal has been thoroughly tested by independent laboratories from around the world
3. No independent laboratory tests
4. Reduces smoke density
4. No protection. In fact, most fiber protectors are highly toxic when they burn
5. Reduces flame spread
5. No claims of reducing flame spread
6. If flame retardant is applied to fabrics, retardant is sealed in so normal everyday cleaning won’t remove
6. No protection for flame retardant
7. Colorfast-has no effect on color or texture of treated fabrics
7. Have been known to “yellow” light colored fabrics over time or when sprayed
8. Mildew and static electricity resistance
8. No protection
9. MicroSeal only attaches to fibers and will not seal in anything non-fibrous, so fabric / carpet does not have to be clean before application
9. Many products will seal both fibrous and non-fibrous particles. Therefore, dirty fabrics treated with these chemicals will have dirt, stains, etc., sealed in at time of treatment.
10. Does not damage woodwork, metal paint or glass. Safe and easy to use
10. Will spot woodwork, metal and glass. Can cause problems if not removed quickly
1. Can be used on any material with a fibrous nature including suedes and smooth finished leathers
11. Cannot be used on some types of fabrics, such as suede or smooth finished leathers
12. MicroSeal is non-toxic and non-allergenic – Carrier has a EPA rating of GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe)
12. EPA test reports have cited health and environmental concerns with fiber protectors that use flurochemicals and PTFE Resin – 95% of fabric protectors are either fluorochemical or co-polymer / polymer (plastic) based
