G3 Technology Innovations (G3i) and Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) together announced that G3i's textile finish product, GreenShield, has received its Indoor Advantage Gold Certification.

This standard sets the toughest limits for indoor air emissions and guarantees that products contribute to a healthy and safe indoor environment. GreenShield has now received two certifications from SCS. In addition to the Indoor Advantage Gold certification, GreenShield has also received certification as a Low Fluorocarbon Treatment.

G3i markets the GreenShield brand of textile finishes to the architectural and design community, end-users and facility managers, where indoor air quality is an important issue. For the commercial textile finishing industry, GreenShield is a revolutionary new product that repels soils and stains, reduces fluorochemical usage by a factor of 8 or more, and can deliver flame retardant, antistatic and anti-odor (microbe and bacteriaresistance) properties.

Through the use of green nanotechnology principles, G3i has developed a proprietary process that eliminates waste, uses ambient temperature and pressure, and uses aqueous solvents only to create products that limit or eliminate the use of harmful chemistries while improving their economy of use.

“Receiving two certifications from SCS is a huge step for GreenShield and G3i”, says Dr. Alex Qiao, President of G3 Technology Innovations, “this complements and strengthens ourcommitment to finding solutions for the environment and human health issues”.

GreenShield provides innovative environmental and health benefits unmatched by any other textile finish on the market today, due to the dramatic reduction in the use of fluorocarbons compared to other industry products. “For the first time a textile finish can help fabrics reduce their impact on the environment”, added Dr. Qiao.
