To insure the very best in performance for healthcare and assisted living facilities, restaurants, hotels, and other environments where stain and soil resistance or moisture barriers are required, many Coral fabrics are finished with Nano-Tex, DuraBlock, Crypton, InCase, or Alta. A wide variety are in stock at our distribution center, others may be treated to your specification.
Nano-Tex repels liquids so they bead up and roll off the surface of the fabric. Fabrics retain their original softness and drape-ability, and remain breathable. Nano-Tex will not change a fabric's ability to pass NFPA 701 fire code: fabrics that inherently pass code will still do so after treatment with Nano-Tex. Fabrics finished with Nano-Tex can also be treated to pass other flammability codes. Nano-Tex is environmentally friendly: fabrics finished with Nano-Tex are still recyclable.
DuraBlock provides a moisture barrier, critical in many healthcare facilities or restaurants. DuraBlock may be combined with Nano-Tex to add soil/stain resistance.
Crypton finishing makes fabrics super stain resistant, creates a moisture barrier, adds strength, durability and breathability, and provides antibacterial protection.
INCASE was created specifically for upholstery fabrics to provide a combined solution of “repel and release” stain technology and microbial resistance for the life of the fabric. INCASE® does not change the hand or color of the fabric.
Alta is a state-of-the-art finish that is specifically formulated to meet requirements for fabrics in very specific spaces. Alta can provide all (or combinations of) flame resistance, durability, moisture barrier, soil and stain repellency, and antimicrobial protection, as required.
Bleach Cleanable Bleach cleanable fabrics can be cleaned with a dilute solution of household bleach in the specified ratio. A 1:10 diluted solution (1 part bleach to 10 parts water) satisfies the Center for Disease Control's recommendation for disinfecting a surface. It is imperative that textiles be flushed with clean water after the application of a bleach solution.
Fabrics woven with solution dyed fibers and high-energy dyed polyester have strong colorfastness when cleaned with a bleach solution. PVC and Polyurethane vinyls can be treated to withstand both bleach and high concentrations of rubbing alcohol.
Many bleach cleanable fabrics have additional stain resistant and antimicrobial finishes, and moistures barriers such as DuraBlock or Crypton. This combination of performance features makes them the standard for hospital facilities and food service environments.
