Stain Resistant

Dual action stain protection technology

StainSmart® is a patented dual-action stain protection technology that repels and releases stains. Water-based liquid spills bead up and roll off the treated fabric, while the technology also enables ground-in stains to be washed out.

StainSmart is engineered to work with other performance-enhancing technologies such as odor control, moisture management, wrinkle resistance, stretch, and soft feel.

The Results

In a side-by-side comparison test between our StainSmart treated fabric and another leading repellent fabric, we stained both the repellent fabric and our StainSmart fabric with oil and washed them. After 30 washes, comparable to the amount of washing you would do over a year, the StainSmart fabric released the oil stain time and time again, easily outperforming the competition's repellent fabric.
