FiberGard Plus! Lab Test Results

The following comments are taken from a summary

of two independent lab tests performed at:

Consumer Testing Laboratories, Inc.

Clemson University, School of Textiles, Fiber & Polymer Science

“The sample exhibits good physical properties, composed of a homogenous liquid with no foreign material noted. The sample has a water-thin viscosity and does not emit an odor that is unusually offensive. The sample is very slightly acidic, having a pH value of 6.36.”

“It should be noted that applications of the products does create a barrier in preventing stains from setting in up to one hour. The sample keeps the stains from breaking the barrier to chemically bond to the fibers to create permanent staining. This allows stains to be cleaned effectively as the spill occurs.”

“The stains applied were: black coffee, red wine, tomato juice, cola, motor oil, and chocolate ice cream. The only stains that remained on the fabrics within five minutes after application was a trace of the motor oil. All other stains were completely removed.”

“The substrates used in the test were: cotton, nylon, synthetic carpet, wool, polyester, and a cotton/poly blend…Once applied, the sample increases the tensile strength of cotton and nylon fabrics more than 10%. The sample does increase the abrasion resistance on cotton/poly fabric. After 6,000 cycles on a Wyzenbeck Abrader with a standard screen mesh, an untreated sample revealed broken threads, on the surface, while the treated sample remained unscathed.”

“The sample exhibits good application properties with the separate sprayer included.”
