Xtreme Fabric Coatings incorporate infection control and anti-decubitus characteristics.
Our transfer coatings provide an impenetrable barrier to viruses and bacteria. Xtreme fabric mattresses are also be welded which produce seams that are ingress proof, minimising any risk of harbouring viruses or bacteria and transmitting infections.
Xtreme Fabric Coatings are designed to address the technical requirements of the acute healthcare environment without compromising on patient comfort.Xtreme provides multi-direction stretch which will conform to the contours of the patient and medical apparatus for maximum comfort. The moisture vapour transfer or “breathability” properties of Xtreme Fabric Coatings help improve patient comfort and contribute towards the reduction of pressure sore development.
Easy to Clean
Xtreme Fabric Coatings are built to withstand the aggressive cleaning regimes used within the acute care environment.They can be easily cleaned and decontaminated, by simply wiping down regularly with strong cleaning products.
Acute care environments which focus on the clinical care of patients have to follow detailed cleaning protocols and need a fabric that will withstand higher levels of concentration over prolonged contact times. Higher concentrations of chlorine can accelerate the aging of traditional polyurethane fabrics.
Xtreme Fabric Coatings offer extended life compared to these traditional formulations, with increased resilience to frequent or prolonged exposure of 10,000 ppm of active chlorine.
Xtreme Fabric Coatings are waterproof and have been vigorously tested internally and independently to simulate the demanding conditions experienced in the healthcare sector.
Xtreme offers excellent resistance to hydrolysis which ensures that the coating will not deteriorate during the life span of the product.
Xtreme when used on welded covers with the appropriate substrate, ensures the seams are both fully waterproof and ingress proof.
Pressure Relief (Anti-Decubitus)
Xtreme Fabric Coatings are designed to significantly reduce pressure sores and pressure ulcers. Our formulations reduce friction and help disperse moisture, both of which are major contributing factors to the formation of bed sores.
Xtreme Fabric Coatings are designed to offer exceptional durability without compromising on comfort. Our products have been rigorously tested for flex cracking, tensile strength & elongation, tear resistance, bursting strength and coating adhesion.
Xtreme fabric coatings have been independently tested for skin irritation, sensitisation and cytotoxicity and have gained Oeko-Tex class 1 accreditation.
