Each individual yarn is coated with a colorless protective layer. This makes it more difficult for foreign substances to penetrate the yarns. Accordingly even problematic stains, such as ink, can be treated much more easily. Because of the new easy care technology, the treatment of stains is clearly and visibly more successful than the one of fabrics without stain protection. This new technology enables us to treat standard household stains on an upholstery fabric with a more successful chance. The typical properties, instructions for use and care instructions for the respective upholstery fabrics remain unaffected.
