Ultra-Guard outperformed three (3) other known stain repellents for coffee, cola, tomato juice and mustard. Ultra-Guard repelled oil where the two (2) silicone products did not. Diatomaceous earth (soil) clung to silicone treated fabrics and carpeting, while fabrics and carpeting treated with Ultra-Guard exhibited no such clinging.

Ultra-Guard outperformed three major brands and proved to have superior stain resistance. The two silicone formulas treatment did not provide any oil or soil repellency. Silicone is “chemically sticky” and in fact attracted soil to the fabric.
After five (5) dry cleanings using chlorinated solvent and a soft cloth with which to apply and remove the solvent, Ultra-Guard showed better stain resistance than three major brands under the test.
The treated fabrics were exposed to artificial sunlight (Mercury Vapor Arc) for a period of twenty-four (24) hours.
The Ultra-Guard treated fabrics did not show any appreciable amount of fading while fabrics treated with the other products exhibited absolutely no fade resistance.
-National Testing Laboratories, New York, and Georgia Institute of Technology
Textiles treated with Ultra-Guard showed fifteen to twenty-five percent (15 to 25%) greater wear resistance than with the other products under test. And fifty to one hundred percent (50 – 100%) greater wear resistance than the untreated fabrics. The test consisted of using the Taber Abrader Method.
It is estimated that fabrics and carpeting treated with Ultra-Guard should last substantially longer than three major brands.
Two tests were performed: One was to determine whether or not Ultra-Guard changed the flammability rating of the various fabrics that were tested after treatment. The second was to determine if Ultra-Guard had a flash point, making it either flammable or combustible
Fabrics that were treated with Ultra-Guard had the same flammability rating as those that were untreated. Showing Ultra-Guard had no Flashpoint. Therefore, nonflammable or combustible and as such poses no fire hazard to the application site. Silicone products that were tested are combustible and as such, could pose a serious fire hazard to the application site.
Ultra-Guard does not protect fabrics or carpets from damage from such as burns, acid, dyes, pooling, snags, cuts, or tears.
Ultra-Guard is Hypoallergenic and none of it’s components is listed by NTP or IARC as being carcinogenic, mutagenic or teratogenic. Ultra-Guard contains no ozone depleting substances.
