Fluorocarbons Content Test
This test shows that Fiber ProTector does not contain any perfluorooctanic acid (PFOA) or any perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS).
Skin Patch Test
This test shows that no skin irritation was detected when testing 20 individuals. Cotton fabric samples were soaked with Fiber ProTector and dried. The dried samples were placed on the forearms of 20 test subjects. After 24 hours the patches were removed and the test subjects forearms were examined. There were no reactions to the patch samples.
Bacteriostatic Reduction Test
A sample fabric was treated with Fiber ProTector and allowed to dry. Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumoniae were put on treated and untreated samples of fabric and incubated for 18 hours. The untreated samples had a significant increase in bacterial growth. The treated samples had a 99.9% reduction rate.
Air Permeability Test
This test shows that fabric treated with Fiber ProTector retains it’s breathability. The ability of air to pass through the fabric is not effected.
