The vinyl used on this item is coated using PERMABLOK3 protection from Spradling. This is a proven vinyl protective coating that's engineered to create a tough, effective barrier against the three biggest problems encountered in healthcare and hospitality environments: Germs. Abrasion. Stains. You can't see it. Or feel it. Yet the protection it offers results in extended performance and lasting beauty with a minimum of care. PERMABLOK3 results in a more hygienic environment, because germ counts can be kept down. Importantly, it also guards against the surface growth of fungus, mold and mildew spores which can cause unpleasant odors, unsightly pink and black stain, even allergic reactions. Which means vinyls treated with PERMABLOK3 not only keep their good looks, they remain highly resistant to microbial deterioration which can cause cracking, spitting and loss of flexibility. PERMABLOK3 offers unsurpassed antimicrobial protection by resisting gram positive and gram negative bacteria, filamentous fungi and yeast. CFFA standard Wyzenbeek test methods confirm that Permablok offers some of the toughest abrasion protection available for vinyl fabrics today - demonstrating excellent resistance to scuffing and burnishing which can make ordinary vinyls look old before their time.
