Protection against germs, abrasions, and stains

PERMABLOK3® from Spradling is a proven vinyl protective coating that’s engineered to create a tough, effective barrier against the three biggest problems encountered in healthcare and hospitality environments: germs, abrasion, and stains. You can not see it or feel it, yet the protection it offers results in extended performance and lasting beauty with minimum care.

Superior antibacterial protection

PERMABLOK3® results in a more hygienic environment because germ counts can be kept down. Importantly, it also guards against the surface growth of fungus, mold, and mildew spores which can cause unpleasant odors, unsightly pink and black stains, even allergic reactions. This means that vinyl treated with PERMABLOK3® not only keeps its good looks, but also remains highly resistant to deterioration such as cracking, splitting and loss of flexibility. So from any standpoint, hygienic, cosmetic or structural, PERMABLOK3® offers superior bacterial protection that healthcare and hospitality industries can rely on.

Superior anti-stain protection

When caught quickly, most everyday stains like grease, blood, suntan lotion, crayon, ketchup and black felt tip pens can be wiped right off vinyl treated with PERMABLOK3®. Just use mild soap and water. For more stubborn stains, a variety of concentrated and solvent type cleansers may be used without damaging the surface. These include alcohol, naphtha, and bleach. (Abrasive household cleansers and steel wool should be avoided – see the Care and Cleaning guide for complete instructions.)
