Often Imitated. Never Duplicated.
For more than 20 years, OMNOVA’s flagship PreFixx® protective coating has set the standard for performance in the coated fabrics industry. In applications for marine, transportation, auto aftermarket upholstery and healthcare, cleanability is one of the most important factors in a fabric’s success. In these markets, PreFixx coatings mitigate high costs associated with replacing upholstery due to wear
and everyday dirt, grease, grime and spills.
With the introduction of PreFixx in the 1980s, we could offer vinyl upholstery at an unsurpassed level of protection. Spills and stains clean up beautifully without wear and tear!
We revolutionized the industry by significantly reducing maintenance costs and re-upholstery bills.
PreFixx Finish Goes Beyond Previous Protection
Performance — PreFixx protective finish delivers the industry's best-in-class performance, durability and easy maintenance to OMNOVA's upholstery products. Its state-of-the-art resistance to staining, abrasion, scuffing, burnishing and blocking have been demonstrated in repeated laboratory and field tests. These attributes are desired for a variety of applications, including hospitality, transportation, marine, corporate and a bevy of other commercial environments. Also of importance to the healthcare industry is the chemical resistance provided by PreFixx coating. Upholstery products for this market need to be durable as well as cleaned and disinfected with a variety of chemicals without worrying about discoloration or damage to the upholstery finish.
Durability — PreFixx coatings resist stain penetration for unique, long term protection. The superior stain resistance and improved wear-properties help keep PreFixx protected products looking new far longer than most other vinyl upholstery.
Easy maintenance — Most common stains like dirt and smudges simply wipe off. Many difficult stains like ballpoint ink can be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol without damaging the PreFixx coating when the recommended cleaning instructions are followed.
