Shield Spill Repellent

Home - Shield Spill Repellent

Due to excessive dust and casual maintenance of furnishing fabrics in India, sofa / carpets / curtains / car seat covers (even suits and sarees) tend to become dirty very soon and lose their charm. Once a fabric has got a stain, there are only two options:

  • Let it remain like that
  • Get it changed or dry-cleaned (which may not bring the freshness back)
Now there is third option i.e. protect it with SHIELD. It is a chemical specially formulated by one of the biggest companies in USA (M/s Fibre Shield Inc.) keeping in mind the climatic and living conditions in India. Once the fabric is treated, it becomes water and spill repellent fabric does not absorb liquids and looks spotless and like new for years.

It is a ‘stain repellant’ and helps keep fabric clean for longer period (even after when liquid starts getting absorbed in fabric as thread continues to be protected). Treatment however does not make fabric ‘water proof’ (e.g. a treated shirt doesn’t get converted into a ‘raincoat’). Also the treatment provides limited protection from oil spills.

Duration of effectiveness will depend upon the overall usage and will definitely be less in commercial use as compared to domestic one. Standard effectiveness expectancy is 24 to 30 months with normal use and care.

Treatment: While we also undertake to carry out ‘on site’ as well pre-delivery treatments, Spill repellent is available in liquid form as well as a 'spray can' for sale for those who want to do the treatment themselves.

Shield being a chemical can have some temporary side effects if inhaled. Area where it is being applied should be left empty and duly ventilated for at least one hour. Chemical must be kept away from fire and electrical sparks.

Shield works as a protective layer on the fabric without effecting, in any way, the feel/breath/color etc., provides resistance from liquids, soil, stains and abrasion to all kinds of fabrics (natural and man made) thus is an excellent value for money for those who value spotlessness.
