When the wool fibre is sheard from the animal, the natural protection is no longer produced, subjecting it to faster deterioration (wear) and permanent staining.
MicroSeal was specifically and expressly designed in England many years ago to permanently replenish the natural protective agent that a sheep produces for its own coat. In addition to wear and stain protection, MicroSeal provides substantial sun fade resistance for the wool. MicroSeal protects silk blend rugs from sun degradation.
Every day soil is naturally absorbed into the center of the wool fibre, hiding the dirt from the naked eye. Often consumers don't realize their rug is dirty because they can't see it. Unlike a typical fabric protector that only "coats" the fibre and then breaks up easily, MicroSeal penetrates the wool fibre to its inner cortex and protects it from the inside out. Not only from permanent stains and wear, but also from sun fade damage (nearly 100% on most fabrics according to 25 years of field and laboratory testing).
MicroSeal will not break up, wear off, or clean off and will continue to protect the fibers from permanent stains and sun fading for many years. Don't be fooled by competitors who have suddenly started marketing their product as "nano-technology", "permanent" or "long lasting" in response to MicroSeal's performance.
|Seals All Fabrics/Carpets||Wools, cottons, silk, synthetics, suedes, smooth leather|

The formula's ingredients are proprietary. The EPA has rated our carrier ingredient GRAS (Generally Recogn ized as Safe). The MicroSeal protectant (active ingredient) is non-toxic, non-allergenic, biodegradable and Cal ifornia VOC compliant when wet, zero VOC's when dry.
This is true of poorly formulated and low grade silicon based products. MicroSeal has been proven in the Aerospace Industry, by worldwide certified laboratory testing and by many high profile user's to prevent soiling. Among other certifications MicroSeal is WoolSafe Certified.
Silicon is the second most common element in the earth's crust (oxygen is the first, See silicon - Wikipedia ), which is about as "earth friendly" as a product can get! Silicon also happens to be a vital nutrition for joints, bones and skin . Silicon is found in many natural foods. Depending on the manufacturing processes, there are many vital uses for silicon in electronics, construction, automotive, toy products. Unlike "fluorochemical" or " PTFE Resin " , an internet search for "silicon" won't come up with anything negative . Our factory uses specia lly formulated high grade silicon. MicroSeal does not cause yellowing or stickiness like some poorly formulated silicon based products in the industry. MicroSeal is proven to be superior in performance and environmentally safer than fluorochemical based products.
In addition to being Aerospace and Independent Laboratory Tested and proven, MicroSeal is a penetrator, not a coater. Coaters are hard and fracture easily (upon manipulation or cleaning) becoming dirt traps that makes the fabric more difficult to clean than if the carpet had no protection at all! MicroSeal penetrates the individual fiber die sites or natural pores forming a "flexible" barrier that does not break up easily.
