Crypton® textiles added to Victor Group’s Facts-certified products

November 5th, 2014 / By: / EcoNote

Victor Group announces that it has completed a comprehensive third-party certification project based on the new Facts sustainability certification program for its commercial fabrics using patented Crypton® technology. To achieve Facts certification, products must meet the multi-attribute requirements of the NSF/ANSI 336 standard. Facts, a new mark, is owned by the Association for Contract Textiles (ACT), and applies to contract fabrics used in the office, hospitality, healthcare, education, government and institutional market segments.

Victor Group’s Crypton Fabrics feature stain, moisture and odor resistance, as well as anti-microbial properties. These fabrics provide a patented, integrated moisture barrier that will not break down. For the assessment and certification of their products and processes, Victor Group chose to work with SCS Global Services, a provider of third-party environmental and sustainable certification, auditing, testing and standards development. SCS evaluated these sustainability attributes: fiber sourcing, safety of materials, water conservation, water quality, energy, air quality, recycling practices, and social accountability.

Victor Group is a North American-based textile company specializing in sustainable and innovative fabrics designed for the contract, healthcare, apparel, and specialty markets. Its other textiles certified by SCS include the Eco Intelligence® line, with products that are antimony-free, contain post-consumer recycled and post-industrial recycled content polyesters, and are Facts certified. New to Victor Group is Eco Intelligent® Wool, which is also certified.
