FABRICS FAQ : Nanotex textile


Nanotex is a type of textile finishing that uses nanotechnology, the manipulation of matter on an atomic and molecular scale, to alter the properties of a textile to increase resistance to spills and stains. Nanotex is an environmentally friendly finishing option. A fabric finished with Nanotex can be recycled.


DuraBlock is a backing that can be applied to all fabrics finished with Nanotex. DuraBlock forms a breathable, liquid-proof barrier that prevents liquids or contaminants from reaching the seat cushion. Its ideal usage is for seating in high-traffic areas in healthcare, institutional, and educational environments. Fabrics backed with DuraBlock can be recycled.


Nanotex plus Bio-Am is Nanotex with antimicrobial benefits. This is a permanent finish that protects the fabric against microbes such as MRSA, mildew, mold, fungi, algae, and bacteria. It helps to reduce odors and stains caused by microbes. It can be applied to virtually all fabrics, including natural and synthetic fibers. Nanotex plus Bio-Am is environmentally friendly. In addition to being biodegradable, it also does not contain any arsenic, tin, heavy metals or polychlorinated phenols. This finish will not change the hand of the fabric. Nanotex Bio-Am is ideal for cubicle curtains, panel systems, upholstery, and drapery.
