Sta-Kleen Silicone – The Future of Coated Fabrics
From Mitchell Fabrics, Sta-Kleen Silicone is the newest innovation in the Sta-Kleen family of coated fabrics. It is a completely new type of coated fabric made from 100% silicone with a 100% polyester double-knit backing (allowing better recover and 4-way stretch for easier upholstering). What is Silicone? Silicone is an organic polymer unlike PU and PVC which are inorganic polymers. Simply put, organic polymers use cleaner building blocks, like Carbon, at the molecular level.
The production process is as environmentally friendly as it gets. Sta-Kleen Silicone is produced through a one station casting process which uses far less energy than a traditional coated fabric manufacturing process. The process does not use any solvents and very little water. Less water to re-cycle (which takes significant energy) or in some cases leads to pollution. There is no VOC released and no air pollution.
Sta-Kleen Silicone exceeds the performance standards for coated fabrics set by the Association of Contract Textiles (ACT). Sta-Kleen Silicone is also inherently stain resistant, chemical disinfectant resistant (more information on chemical disinfectant resistance can be found here), mildew resistant, hydrolysis resistant, UV resistant, denim dye resistant with superior cold crack performance. It delivers the highest Colorfastness to Light rating of any coated fabric on the market today. Suitable applications include Healthcare, Hospitality, Contract, Automotive, and Outdoor/Marine.
Sta-Kleen Silicone does not contain: Polyvinyl Chloride, Plasticizers, Phthalates, Stabilizers, Heavy Metals or Bisphenol A. It does not contain any chemical additives, but passes most commercial flammability tests.
Sta-Kleen Silicone is compliant with the following environmental, green building, and material reporting standards:
LEED v4 and LEED MR Credit 5
CA Section 01350 VOC Emissions
Health Product Declaration (HPD)
Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI)
