What is Fiber-Shield®?
Fiber-Shield ® is a blended penetrating mixture of specialty polymers contained in a waterborne, or petroleum carrier - (Simply a means of uniformly "delivering the polymer system") designed to protect fabrics and carpeting from waterborne, oilborne and soilborne elements.
How does Fiber-Shield® work?
Fiber-Shield ® is applied under pressure at 40 psi. Once applied you can expect a dry time of approximately 3 hours (under normal humidity), and a CURE TIME of 24 - 72 hours. During this time Fiber-Shield® works its way from the top to bottom of every fiber, coating, expanding, removing air spaces. This makes a spill or soil less likely to penetrate and stain the fibers, and therefore can be easily removed.
