Why are PVC coated fabrics ideal during a pandemic?

With the current global pandemic showing no signs of letting up, it’s important that we look to find long term solutions to protecting ourselves against the virus, among other harmful germs. This includes ensuring that the surfaces we come into contact with are kept as hygienic as possible.

So, what does this have to do with PVC coated fabrics?

PVC coatings are ideal for keeping fabric surfaces as hygienic as possible because:

  1. They are easy to clean and maintain – the smooth PVC coating makes the surface very easy to wipe clean.
  2. They are highly durable – they can withstand a high level of wear and tear, alongside rigorous and regular cleaning.
  3. They are resistant to the growth of mould and mildew.
  4. They can be manufactured with antimicrobial technology – additives incorporated into the surface reduce the presence of bacteria and viruses by over 99%.

Because of their versatility, PVC fabrics are an ideal solution for many different applications, such as healthcare upholstery, gym equipment, car interiors, public transport upholstery.
