Sta-Kleen, erasable urethane fabric that feels like real leather

Sta-Kleen, the industry's first truly erasable urethane fabric that enables complete erasing of marks and stains, revolutionizes maintenance and furniture replacement cycles in hospitality, healthcare, office interior, marine and institutional environments while offering the high-end appeal designers demand.

Perfect for high-traffic commercial environments, Sta-Kleen is the first faux leather that withstands repeated cleanings with no damage to the erasable urethane fabric. The performance fabrics' built-in stain resistance reduces maintenance time and expense, and extends furniture life. Marks and stains like ballpoint pen, permanent marker, mustard and Betadine antiseptic that would permanently damage other furniture upholstery are easily removed from Sta-Kleen in most cases with a dry cloth.

"Sta-Kleen is a true revolution in faux leather upholstery because nothing is sacrificed in terms of beauty, hand, stain resistance and wearability," said Bill Fisch, president of The Mitchell Group. "It is the first product that has stain protection cross-linked into the layers of the fabric, making it a permanent feature that can't be worn away."

When covered with Sta-Kleen, furnishings in hotel rooms, restaurants, lobbies, examination rooms and other high-traffic areas won't wear out or dull with repeated cleaning. The highly durable erasable urethane fabric lasts as long as the furniture, making it ideal for casinos, performing arts centers, learning environments and other heavy-use public spaces.

Frequent cleaning won't degrade the fabric in any way because of a proprietary bonding process that makes it impermeable to stains. Sta-Kleen is highly abrasion-resistant and easily exceeds 100,000 cycles. The erasable urethane fabric is also sulfide stain resistant, anti-microbial, and anti-bacterial for healthier indoor environments.

For day-to-day clean-up of Sta-Kleen, a mild soap-and-water solution is all that's required to remove dirt and smudges. And many persistent stains can be dry-erased with a clean cloth. "A little rubbing alcohol on a clean cloth or sponge will easily remove any ghost stain that might remain," said Fisch.

Sta-Kleen is also the first erasable urethane fabric with a hand that feels like real leather. It is available in hundreds of colors and soft and supple patterns that give designers freedom to bring their vision to reality.
