SILVERTEX

Spradling’s newest vinyl-coated fabric addition was created using a unique and exclusive technique which creates a refined dimensional appearance. Spradling utilizes this art form to bring you Silvertex, a subtle texture indistinguishable from real fabric, with one exception…..superior performance.  It is ideal for Healthcare, Hospitality, Food Service, Corporate Interiors, Residential Interiors, Casino, Marine,RV and Automotive Interiors

 

SILVERTEX is treated with SILVERGUARD™ SILVER ION TECHNOLOGY

 

 

SAFE-SILVERGUARD is a natural environmentally friendly bacteria fighting defense to inhibit odor and stain causig bacteria, plus the the technology is EPA registered and FDA approved.

 

 

 

 

RELIABLE-SILVERGUARD stays fresh and last longer than other silver ion based products due to the proprietary manufacturing process which promotes its bacteria-fighting protection after repetitive cleanings.

 

 

 

 

EFFECTIVE-SILVERGUARDis an antimocrobial agent.  It is safe and efficient in diminishing odors, promoting freshness and extending the life cycle of a product by attacking bacteria and other destructive microorganisms.

 

HOW IT WORKS

 

 

 

 

Silver ions engineered into the unique chemistry of SILVERGUARD are highly effective against bacteria because they destroy microorganisms through multiple paths.  Silver guard attacks the bacteria cell wall, disrupts protein metabolism within the cell, and forms complexes with other biomolecules in the cell to alter cell functions. These ions are slowly released out of their inorganic matrix in the presence of moisture.  SILVERGUARD is released as needed to effectively control bacterial growth, while leaving sufficient quantities of SILVERGUARD to retain antibacterial protection.

Permablok3 Advanced Vinyl Protection
 

Protection against germs, abrasions, and stains
PERMABLOK3® from Spradling is a proven vinyl protective coating that’s engineered to create a tough, effective barrier against the three biggest problems encountered in healthcare and hospitality environments – germs, abrasion, and stains. You can’t see it or feel it, yet the protection it offers results in extended performance and lasting beauty with a minimum of care.

Superior antibacterial protection
PERMABLOK3results in a more hygienic environment because germ counts can be kept down. Importantly, it also guards against the surface growth of fungus, mold, and mildew spores which can cause unpleasant odors, unsightly pink and black stains, even allergic reactions. This means that vinyl treated with PermaBlok3 not only keeps its good looks, but also remains highly resistant to deterioration such as cracking, splitting, and loss of flexibility. So from any standpoint, hygienic, cosmetic, or structural, PermaBlok3 offers superior bacterial protection that healthcare and hospitality industries can really count on.

Superior anti-stain protection
When caught quickly, most everyday stains like grease, blood, suntan lotion, crayon, ketchup, and black felt tip pens can be wiped right off vinyl treated with PERMABLOK3. Just use mild soap and water. For more stubborn stains, a variety of concentrated and solvent type cleansers may be used without damaging the surface. These include alcohol, naphtha, and bleach. (Abrasive household cleansers and steel wool should be avoided - see the Care and Cleaning guide for complete instructions.)

Superior antifungal protection
PERMABLOK3offers unsurpassed antifungal protection by resisting gram positive and gram negative bacteria, filamentous fungi, and yeast.

Gram Positive Gram Negative
Bacillus cereus
Bacillus mycoides
Bacillus subtilis
Enterococcus faecalis
Listeria welshimeri
Nocardia asteroides
Staphylococcus aureus
Enterobacter aerogenes
Escherichia coli
Klebsiella pneumoniae
Morganella morgani
Proteus mirabilis
Proteus vulgaris
Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Salmonella choleraesuis
Yeast Filamentous Fungi
Candida albicans Aspergillus niger
Microsporum canis
Penicillium ochro-chloron
Scopulariopsis brevicaulis
Trichophyton mentagrophytes
Trichophyton rubrum

 

CDC Cleaning Guidelines

Contaminated environmental surfaces account for much of the spread of germs and bacteria in healthcare environments, so it’s important that Spradling customers know how to properly sanitize these surfaces to help prevent the spread of microorganisms and communicative diseases.

There are a number of factors to consider when disinfecting an environmental surface, e.g., whether or not the disinfectants are registered by the EPA, proper maintenance of cleaning materials, and cleaning procedures around patients with immunodeficiencies.

The Center for Disease Control has released a set of cleaning guidelines that will help to prevent any unsanitary conditions. Download the PDF below to learn more.

Care and Cleaning Guide

Step 1 (eye shadow, mascara, grease, black felt tip pen, crayon, chocolate, suntan lotion,

hair and body oils*):  Remove excess spill with a damp cloth. Clean with a 1:1 mix of Ivory®

liquid soap and water.  Next, rinse with clean water and dry.

Step 2 (red lipstick):

Use a straight application of concentrated cleaners such as Formula 409® or Fantastik® spray

cleaner. Wipe with a clean cloth, rinse with water, and dry.

Step 3 (blood, urine, feces, oil base paint, tar, and asphalt):

Use a 1:1 mix of ammonia and water, or a 1:4 mix of bleach and water. Rinse with clean water

and dry.

Steps 4 & 5 (all other tough stains):

Step 4: Use a straight application of naphtha (lighter fluid). Rinse thoroughly with clean water and

pat surface dry.

Step 5: Use a 1:1 mix of isopropyl alcohol and water. If the stain persists, use straight alcohol.

Rinse thoroughly with clean water and pat dry.

Note: For cleaning that requires step 4 or 5, use a soft cotton cloth saturated with the cleaning

material and rub the stain in circles 10 times. Pat dry with another soft cotton cloth and check

the results.

*Must be cleaned after each instance of exposure to hair and body oils.
