The Three Critical ASTM Standards to Qualify Finishes on Vinyl and Textiles for Seating and Upholstery
Plasticizer migration, chemical exposure, stains, and abrasion are the top performance challenges for seating and upholstery that impact the material’s lifecycle. Vynguard® Performance Coatings was developed as a fundamental solution to these challenges.
Vynguard Performance Coatings is a full line of custom engineered finishes and lacquers for flexible woven and non-woven vinyl, leather, textiles, and fabrics. Applied at the OEM, VYNGUARD® finishes are individually formulated for each project to the specification of the manufacturer.
At APV, we conduct many different ASTM test standards to qualify a custom Vynguard® chemistry. The three most often employed tests for seating and upholstery applications include: Martindale abrasion test (ASTM D4966), stain resistance testing (ASTM D1308), and w-flex testing (ASTM D2097).
