Johnson Controls, a global industrial company, has developed a coating for fabrics that keeps automotive seats clean and hygienic. The coating repels dirt and liquid, protects passengers from microbes and static and can be applied to all cover fabrics. For optimum long-lasting protection, the company coats the entire fabric, not just one side, in the new product.
FreshPer4mance makes textiles liquid-repellent, stain-resistant, antistatic and antimicrobial. Dirt and spills can be removed easily, without leaving any marks, by wiping off the surface. This makes the seats easier to keep clean, hygienic and odor-free.
The coating is well suited for seat covers in commercial vehicles, as well as for vehicles with constantly changing drivers, such as rental cars, car-sharing and pool vehicles. It also increases the cleanliness and value of private vehicles.
FreshPer4mance enables automakers to expand their range of trim fabrics to include lighter colors, offering their customers more distinctive and customized vehicle options.
