Supreen: Resistance to Cleaners & Disinfectants

A fabrics’ ability to resist specific cleaners and disinfectants is an important part of the product’s performance. SUPREEN performance fab- rics are tested using the rigorous protocol developed by fabric manufacturers and distributors in conjunction with the Association for Con- tract Textiles. This particular test is an accelerated exposure method to evaluate the impact of cleaners and disinfectants on woven fabrics. Test Method: The cleaner or disinfectant at the recommended dilution is placed on a sample of the fabric for 2 hours. Material is blotted dry and these steps are repeated over a four day period for a total of ten cycles. After the 10th cycle any chemical residue is wiped o using fresh water and the specimen is visually evaluated to the control sample for any visual changes.

DISCLAIMER

The test method is to evaluate the material’s relative resistance or compatibility to specific cleaners and/or disinfectant chemistries and is not an approval or recommendation of said cleaners and/or disinfectants. This test method is not intended to replicate a ‘real world’ scenario as there is no way to predict use (or misuse) of cleaners and/or disinfectants within an environment.
