Sta-Kleen Silicone – A New Advancement in Coated 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.

PerformanceSta-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, 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.

Environmental QualitiesSta-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:

  • RoHS 2.0
  • LEED v4 and LEED MR Credit 5
  • CA Section 01350 VOC Emissions
  • Health Product Declaration (HPD)
  • Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI)

Sta-Kleen Silicone Care and Cleaning Guide

Day-to-Day Cleaning -- Remove ordinary dirt and smudges with mild soap and water. Dry with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel. The use of conditioners or protectants is not required nor recommended for use on Sta-Kleen Silicone.

Silicone Upholstery - its cleanability is permanent, and won't wear out. Disinfecting -- A 5:1 ratio of water to bleach solution may be used as a disinfectant. Rinse the surface with clean water after disinfecting. Dry with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel. 

Stain Removal --Upholstery protected with Sta-Kleen Silicone is resistant to most common stains. To keep your furniture looking new, stains such as ballpoint pen can be dry-erased with a clean, lint-free cloth. Gently rub the area until the stain has been removed. Wet or gooey stains such as food stains (e.g., ketchup) or topical stains (e.g., antiseptics, lotions and creams) should first be wiped off with a clean cloth or sponge, then follow the instructions above. 

Stubborn Stains -- If a ghost stain remains, apply a small amount of household rubbing alcohol (91% isopropyl alcohol) to a clean, lint-free cloth and rub the stain until it has been removed. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and go! 

Chemical Cleaners - Sta-Kleen Silicone products are used in many commercial applications. The housekeeping crews often use strong chemicals for cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. It is imperative that when these chemical cleaners are used that they are rinsed off with a wet sponge or damp cloth. 

Blue Jean Dye Resistance - Sta-Kleen Silicone creates an invisible barrier to keep the indigo dye from transferring to the upholstery. However, as there are many types of both natural and synthetic dyes used in coloring clothing, we cannot guarantee there will never be any dye transfer. In the unlikely event that any blue jean dye transfer occurs, follow the Stubborn Stains cleaning instructions above.
