PVC Coated Fabrics are those made with polyester scrim and coated with PVC. They are the most popular coated fabrics for architectural applications.
Architectural PVC coated fabrics are most commonly made with a liquid PVC coating on both sides of the scrim. This is done in a knife coating process.
In many cases, a finishing topcoat is applied which provides better resistance against dirt by sealing off the plasticizers in the PVC, which otherwise migrate to the surface and make it sticky. Some finish coatings provide additional UV resistance which extends the life of the fabric, and some provide a surface that is dirt-repellent.
These fabrics tend to be highly durable, often lasting for two decades. We use specialized equipment in our manufacturing which allows us to offer up to a 25-year pro-rated manufacturer warranty on the highest quality architectural fabrics.
We offer a wide selection of PVC coated fabrics from Serge Ferrari to Verseidag, we can't list them all on our site currently. If you have any questions in regards to what other fabrics we offer, please feel free to contact us.
Serge Ferrari offers a weldable PVDF topcoat named S2. This topcoat is a calibrated mixture of acrylic and PVDF. The acrylic keeps the fabric weldable while the PVDF gives the surface its dirt-repellent properties. We offer other Serge Ferrari fabrics, as well.
TX-30 is a pure PVDF topcoat that is cross-linked for additional durability. It is non-weldable and requires abraiding of the TX-30 topcoat for overlap welds.
