Antimicrobial Fabrics for Contract Furniture

  • Antimicrobial Woven Upholstery Fabrics

    Skopos offer a broad range of antimicrobial upholstery weaves, which are waterproof and also soil resist. The active ingredient (BI-OME) is bound to the fabric, making it antimicrobial and antifungal, preventing cell growth. This active ingredient attracts microorganisms and then punctures their cell walls, leaving them ineffective and harmless, killing up to 94% of bacteria. We use this exact same ingredient on our Capa and Nereus upholstery basecloths, allowing customers to choose printed designs for antimicrobial upholstery.

    The Protect-Plus treatment on our woven upholstery fabric has been tested against the Coronavirus strain and demonstrates a reduction of up to 94% within 2 hours of contact, without cleaning.

  • Faux Leathers and Vinyls

    All of the Skopos faux leathers and vinyls have an antimicrobial treatment which is wipe clean and prevents the growth of bacteria and fungus on contact. The        antimicrobial treatment is designed to attack and prevent mildew and fungi on vinyl, polyurethane, and other susceptible polymers. An effective and broad-spectrum fungicide, this technology will prevent any surface growth.

    The Protect-Plus treatment on our faux leather /vinyl upholstery fabric has been tested against the Coronavirus strain and demonstrates a reduction of the virus beyond 97% after 2 hours.
