Introducing Crypton Version 2.0 –
The Hardest-Working Performance Fabric in The Industry
Just Got A Whole Lot Better.
In 1993, we invented an entirely new category of fabric. Twenty one years later, we’ve honed it to perfection. Our latest technology delivers improved levels of performance, uses greener processes and yields a remarkably softer hand, rendering it virtually undetectable from other fabrics. So now when you spec Crypton, you can have the look and feel of your favorite fabrics with no compromise in the hand.
And the best part is you don’t have to do anything different. Just keep specifying Crypton. Our new 2.0 technology will be phased into all production moving forward. Perfectly suited for just about any environment.

With Crypton 2.0, all Crypton Super Fabric will automatically arrive with a brand new hand that’s softer than ever. Through advancements in both our technology and machinery, our engineers have invented a method that incredibly and significantly reduces stiffness, increases the loft and maintains the compression recovery of every fabric.
The end result is the next generation of Crypton – a fabric that offers the performance characteristics like no other on the market with the softness and pliability you’ve been wishing for. You truly need to feel it for yourself. You won’t believe it’s Crypton!

Crypton is committed to be as environmentally responsible as possible. With our new Crypton 2.0 technology, we’ve radically reduced our reliance on petroleum-based materials and reduced CO2 emissions. We’ve changed the moisture barrier so that more than 10% of the feedstock raw materials can be derived from renewable, farm-grown sources, including corn. These advancements are made without sacrificing Crypton’s performance, durability or recyclability.
The introduction of biobased content and the softening of our moisture barrier also bring about environmental advancements in our production process. It takes 40% less energy to produce our corn-derived materials than the petroleum-based alternative. Additionally, we’ve reduced CO2 emissions by improving our manufacturing efficiency, thus generating less greenhouse gas.
Believe it or not, we’ve outdone ourselves! Crypton 2.0 has actually improved cleanability. Our new barrier utilizes the same “repel and release” functionality that was previously reserved just for the fibers. The result is a barrier that more easily releases ground-in stains. Our continued use of the best dual-action chemistry allows both water- and oil-based stains to easily release during spot-cleaning. The culmination of these improvements brings forth the new industry standard – Crypton 2.0 – and the most cleanable barrier fabric in the business.
