Coated Fabrics are textiles that have been treated to make them stronger and longer lasting.

The PVC (vinyl) coating makes the fabrics’ surface more impervious to damage and can be further engineered to resist stains, weather, mildew and other microbes.

Whilst vinyl’s versatile visual characteristics can simulate a leather or textile look, its inherent fire-resistant properties can be built on to meet specific flammability regulations.

Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) molecule

Durable, safe and recyclable

Vinyl coated fabrics are extremely hard-wearing and not prone to peeling or cracking, as is often observed with PU fabrics due to their poor hydrolysis resistance.

For over 50 years, vinyl has been used in various applications including to line potable water reservoirs and pipes.  It is the material of choice for the production of blood bags and intravenous tubes.

Unlike other polymers such as PU, 50% of PVC (vinyl) is made up of common salt – this makes it less reliant on fossil fuel and easily recyclable.

Large quantities of vinyl are re-melted into many useful products and, in contrast to Silicone, numerous vinyl-recycling facilities can be found all over the world.
