Value Vinyls Blog

At Value Vinyls, we take bacteria, mold, and mildew very seriously. Untreated fabrics that have human contact may collect bacteria, which can spread serious, and sometimes deadly infections. We must treat some vinyl fabrics to ensure they are antimicrobial, especially our athletic and medical fabrics. Many of these products see frequent skin-to-skin contact and are often exposed to wounds and injuries. We are committed to using the EPA registered DuraGuard treatment to keep our fabrics safe, clean, and free of microbes. Keep reading to learn more about our antimicrobial vinyl.

Left untreated, vinyl fabrics can absorb and host dangerous bacteria such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), which is a type of staph infection. DuraGuard prevents 99.99% of bacterial growth by sealing the fabric surface, which keeps bacteria from getting trapped in and growing into the fabric’s fibers. This significantly reduces the spread of many infections, including MRSA. Our customers know that partnering with Value Vinyls ensures they are getting the safest, highest-quality vinyl available. This has made us a leader for industrial vinyl, and furthermore, we are proud to be paving the way with safe, antimicrobial vinyl!
