Frequently Asked Questions –
MicroSeal & Fiber Protector
Why do you have more than one fabric, leather and rug protection product offering?
We are distributors for and provide a combination of the two most respected, tested, endorsed, effective and environmentally safe products in the world, being Fiber ProTector and MicroSeal, allowing us to further target textile compositions, the situation and end usage. Our professional applicators carry all products with them so they can make a judgement call if necessary.
When considering other protectors please remember PSP offers:
- Resistance Protection
Other solutions only coat your upholstery, an application of PSP products will penetrate and encapsulate fibers and withstand multiple commercial cleanings.
- Unique Nanotechnology to Protect & Strengthen
PSP products resist against stains, UV Sun Fade, and bacteria. Even better it adds abrasion strength and wear integrity without changing the texture or colour of your item.
- Great Value For Money
PSP protection can extend the life of fabrics and fibers by years for only a small percentage of the items cost.
- Proven Environmentally Safe By Independent Laboratories
PSP Textile Treatment products are considered the leading environmentally safe protectors in the world with no fluorochemicals, and biodegradable. Tested annually and endorsed by the Woolsafe organisation.

What makes PSP Protection Products more Effective than other products on the market?
MicroSeal – Fiber ProTector – Decorgard
|Most ScotchGuard type fabric protection products including Fluorochemicals and silicon dioxide SiO2
|1. Penetrates and coats complete fiber and will survive many professional cleanings and normal wear.
|1. Does not penetrate fiber, but coats only where spray hits. Cleaning or normal wear easily fractures the fabric protection and you must pay for re-application, water based protectors will never be able to penetrate textiles, fact!
|2. Reduces sun fading significantly on most fabrics. Independent laboratory verification
|2. No protection against sun fading. If claimed, no independent laboratory verification
|3. PSP products have been thoroughly tested by independent laboratories from around the world.
|3. No independent laboratory tests
|4. Reduces smoke density
|4. No protection. In fact, most fabric protectors are highly toxic when they burn.
|5. Reduces flame spread.
|5. No claims of reducing flame spread.
|6. If flame retardant is applied to fabrics, retardant is sealed in so normal everyday cleaning won’t remove.
|6. No protection for flame retardant
|7. Colorfast-has no effect on color or texture of treated fabrics.
|7. Have been known to “yellow” light colored fabrics over time or when sprayed. This is especially true with SiO2 silicon dioxide or liquid glass products.
|8. Mildew and static electricity resistance
|8. No protection.
|9. PSP only attaches to fibers and will not seal in anything non-fibrous, so fabric / carpet does not have to be clean before application.
|9. Many products will seal both fibrous and non-fibrous particles. Therefore, dirty fabrics treated with these chemicals will have dirt, stains, etc., sealed in at time of treatment.
|10. Does not damage woodwork, metal paint or glass. Safe and easy to use.
|10. Will spot woodwork, metal and glass. Can cause problems if not removed quickly. Water based products also cause shrinkage!
|11. Can be used on any material with a fibrous nature including suedes and smooth finished leathers
|11. Cannot be used on some types of fabrics, such as suede or smooth finished leathers, water based products are a disaster for Viscose and in fact any cellulosic fiber
|12. MicroSeal is non-toxic and non-allergenic.
|12. EPA test reports have cited health and environmental concerns with fabric protectors that use flurochemicals and PTFE Resin, just because a product is water based does not mean it is environmentally friendly and non toxic.
Our products will always win the most important test of all…THE TEST OF TIME.
What is in MicroSeal and what makes it so unique? Is it Non Toxic & environmentally friendly?
The Formula was originally developed many years ago by researchers in London to imitate the natural protection of sheep’s wool, but it was found to work on ANYTHING fibrous including all natural and synthetic fabrics, silks, all leathers, sisal and more without changing the look or feel!… Now imagine a superior fabric protector so “earth friendly” it comes from the earth itself… Just like Coca-Cola, a deliberate decision was made to keep the MicroSeal formula a Trade Secret, rather than file a patent that could be partially copied or obtained upon its expiration. This unique formula requires a perfect blend and balance of high grade raw ingredients combined with a trained and practiced manufacturing process that would be nearly impossible to reverse engineer. Internationally recognized companies have unsuccessfully thrown millions of dollars and decades of research in an effort to produce a product that is effective and yet is not hazardous to the environment. Today the MicroSeal Secret Formula is created in a state of the art, Carbon-Free, USA facility. The formula is California VOC compliant, non-toxic and non-allergenic. Independently tested and proven to be a superior stain / sun fade resistant product (by nearly 100%) and dramatically increasing the life of all natural AND synthetic fibers… Thus increasing the life cycle of interiors and further reducing the environmental footprint…
