OMNOVA serves retailers a comprehensive resource for durable, upholstery fabrics for seating applications. We offer high quality contract vinyl and urethane fabrics with superior stain and abrasion resistance under the Boltaflex brand name. Many of these fabrics feature the industry leading PreFixx protective finish which imparts outstanding stain and abrasion resistance. Furthermore, PreFixx protected fabrics can be easily cleaned and disinfected, without risk to the color or finish when the recommended cleaning instructions are followed, ensuring that restaurants and chain eateries can more easily maintain a clean and fresh appearance.

In addition to upholstered seating, OMNOVA's surf(x) 3D Laminates are used in the fabrication of hard seating including benches and chairs. surf(x) 3D Laminates are a high-performing, cost-effective alternative to real wood.

Range of Constructions

  • Vinyl coated fabrics are engineered for long term durability. Available in both expanded and non-expanded constructions. Expanded constructions feature a foamed or sponged inner layer resulting in a softer touch. Non-expanded constructions have a solid construction and are the most durable of all vinyl upholsteries.
  • Polyurethane coated fabrics feature a foamed or sponged inner layer and are the softest of synthetic upholsteries.

PreFixx Protective Finish for Long-Lasting Seating

  • Industry's best-in-class performance protective finish for durability and easy maintenance.
  • Superior stain resistance and improved wear-properties help keep upholstery looking new far longer than most other vinyl upholstery.
  • State-of-the-art resistance to staining, abrasion, scuffing, burnishing and blocking have been demonstrated in repeated laboratory and field tests.
  • PreFixx protected upholstery is easily maintained. Simple stains like dirt and smudges simply wipe off. Many difficult stains like ballpoint ink can be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol without damaging the color or when the recommended cleaning instructions are followed.
