In the first quarter of ’19 alone, the company made four important announcements. First, the company launched the professional grade FAST-KLEEN, which cleans carpet and rug spots and stains. This water-based spot cleaner, available in both BOV spray and non- aerosol squirt bottle, is ideal for water-safe carpets. Next, the company announced its latest super-hydrophobic treatment for carpets and rugs – KARPETCRYL SISAL STAIN REPELLENT – for industry professionals. This newest carpet protector comes less than a year after the worldwide debut of KARPETCRYL® VISCOSE. Then, the company launched its super-hydrophobic leather and suede soil , stain and water repellent – SUEDECRYL – to industry professionals worldwide. This powerful new protection for suede, nubuck and non-top coated, or open-faced, leathers is ideal for products in a variety of markets, including footwear, apparel and furniture. Just weeks later, the company announced that all its superhydrophobic products have been certified free of all PFOs, PFOAs, PFAS, or PBDEs (based on independent lab results).


The company’s proven, high- performance products have earned more than an estimated $3 billion in global sales, at-retail, since its beginnings in 1979.  More exciting products are in the R&D pipeline, and that means enhanced ROI for customers of Fiber-Shield Industries, Inc.

The company launches a new nano technology glass treatment that harnesses the effectiveness of the company’s super-hydrophobic research.  Ideal for the automotive aftermarket, the glass treatment actually adheres to the glass, for long-lasting water-repellency.

In addition, the Company develops the first air curing water based textile protector for on site furniture applications.
