Superior Protection against Germs and Abrasion
Permablok3® is the first upholstery protection that is certified with ISO 18184, ISO 21702 & ISO 22196 and offers superior protection against germs, stains and abrasion. It is engineered to create a tough, effective barrier against the three biggest problems encountered in healthcare and hospitality environments – germs, abrasions and stains. Despite not being able to see or feel it, the protection offered results in extended performance and lasting beauty with minimum care. Obtaining those certifications, Spradling® has placed their Coated Fabrics in the top spot of upholstery materials that guarantee more hygienic environments.
Permablok3® results in a more hygienic environment because germ counts can be kept down. It also guards against the surface growth of fungus, mould and mildew spores, which can cause unpleasant odours, unsightly pink and black stains, and even allergic reactions. This means that any vinyl protected with Permablok3® not only keeps its good looks, but also remains highly resistant to deterioration, such as cracking, splitting and loss of flexibility. So from any standpoint, hygienic, cosmetic, or structural, Permablok3® offers superior bacterial protection that, nowadays, healthcare and hospitality industries can really count on.
Taking good care of their customers is one of the main goals of Spradling®. That is why the company wanted to be the first one to certify its Coated Fabrics against Coronavirus and Bacteria.
In terms of virucidal activity, Permablok3® is an effective barrier against the virus as is certified with ISO 18184 (the reduction of Coronavirus presence by more than 90% within one hour of contact) and ISO 21702 (the reduction of Coronavirus activity by 99.9% within 24 hours of exposure on the surface). Permablok3® also ensures bacteria-free upholstered surfaces as is certified with ISO 22196 (Value of antibacterial activity R>2).
Plus, when caught quickly, most everyday stains like grease, blood, suntan lotion, crayon, ketchup, and black felt tip pens can be wiped right off vinyl that is protected with Permablok3®. For more stubborn stains, a variety of concentrated and solvent type cleansers may be used without damaging the surface.
