New High-Performance Upholstery Fabric, Sta-Kleen® Polycarbonate
Introduced by The Mitchell Group
-- Environmentally Responsible, VOC Free, No Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) --
CHICAGO – A new super strong and durable fabric, engineered to be environmentally responsible, Sta-Kleen® Polycarbonate (PC), will be launched by The Mitchell Group, Bill Fisch, president, announced. www.mitchellfauxleathers.com
Mitchell’s latest product in its high-performance faux leather collection is designed for the healthcare, hospitality, contract, and other commercial markets that require a fabric able to withstand demanding applications and yet has a luxurious texture and feel.
“We have engineered Sta-Kleen PC with the highest quality polycarbonate resins,” said Fisch. “Overall, the fabric has outstanding strength, is abrasion and hydrolysis resistant. Moreover, its light fastness far exceeds the Association for Contract Textiles’ (ACT) performance standards for commercial grade upholstery,” said Fisch.
A beautiful fabric for hospitality and contract settings, Sta-Kleen PC is tough enough for the most demanding healthcare applications. While the fabric tailors and cleans easily, as well, is exceptionally stain resistant, Sta-Kleen PC can withstand the effects of commercial cleaners used in healthcare facilities and other commercial environments.
Equally important, Sta-Kleen PC is environmentally responsible, said Fisch. The fabric is VOC free, contains no polyvinyl chloride (PVC), plasticizers, phthalates, heavy metals, or stabilizers. In fact, Sta-Kleen PC doesn’t have any chemical flame-retardants, or toxic by-products. It is RoHS and REACH compliant, with mostly all solvents mill recycled.
Designed to last the life of the furniture, the fabric will initially be offered in five patterns: Donegal, a two tone weave pattern in 15 colors; Matrix, a linen look in 29 colors; Sammie, a solid pattern in 21 colors; Sawcut, a raw cut wood grain design in 19 colors; and Sparkle, a geometric pattern in 17 colors.
