The Crypton process began in West Bloomfield, Mich., at Hi Tex some 17 years ago as a way to make textiles more resistant to spills and stains. Now it will increase the durability of the leather in your business jet. Three years ago, Edelman Leather and Hi Tex began developing a Crypton formula for leather topcoat, and the New Milford, Conn. company introduced it at the NBAA Convention in October as an exclusive product. “It’s a solution to the biggest problem in the interior of a business jet,” said John Edelman, president of Edelman Leathers, “that of maintaining the leather in the same condition it came in.” And between ballpoint pens, coffee, wine and pasta sauce, cleaning and maintaining the original leather is a challenge. “Powered by Crypton,” Edelman calls it, noting that leather treated with the process has the same soft texture, comes in the same colors (50 of them) and is no heavier and no more costly that non-Crypton leather. It’s also antibacterial and antifungal.
