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.
Cleaning With Bleach:
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.
