What Is EverSoft™ Vinyl?
It’s no secret that upholstery vinyl, sometimes called faux leather, is a practical fabric for a variety of indoor and outdoor projects. Here at Sailrite®, we have an extensive collection of only the highest quality vinyls. One product that we’re proud to offer is EverSoft™ Indoor/Outdoor vinyl. We’re here to explain why this fabric should be your next choice for any number of DIY projects.
Made of 100% vinyl on a stretchy polyester tricot backing, EverSoft is an extremely comfortable, sleek, waterproof vinyl with four-way stretch and stain-resistant properties. It can flawlessly conform to contours, corners and curves without sagging or puddling. EverSoft vinyl can easily be pulled and stapled in place for a professional look or sewn when construction stitches are needed. Available in a variety of rich solids with a grain that closely resembles real leather, EverSoft is excellent for creating quality projects where look and feel are paramount.
When it comes to EverSoft and its superior attributes, the list goes on and on. And while we can’t say enough about why this vinyl fabric is the perfect choice for your next DIY project, we’ve highlighted the key factors behind this distinction below. See for yourself why EverSoft is a wise decision for a myriad of upholstery and seating endeavors.
Nanocide™ Silver Ion Antimicrobial Agent: Part of EverSoft's durability is due to the Nanocide Silver Ion Antimicrobial Agent: an environmentally friendly, extremely effective, nontoxic antimicrobial agent within EverSoft. This special nanotechnology embeds itself into the fabric via nanoparticles to ensure full protection against mold and mildew. EverSoft also has the capability to withstand bacterial pinking, which is often a problem on inferior boat upholstery vinyl. If you’d like to learn more about bacterial pinking and how to avoid it on your marine vinyl, refer to our blog “Pink Staining — What Is It and How Do I Prevent It?” (#300349XHT).
Blockade™ special finish: This innovative finish on the top of EverSoft ensures that it will possess years of abrasion and UV resistance for lasting beauty. These qualities make it resilient to the elements and allow it to excel in outdoor settings such as marine upholstery and patio cushions. The Blockade special finish is what makes EverSoft so extremely stain resistant. In fact, most messes clean up easily with soap and water, or can simply be wiped away. For more stubborn stains, you can use Formula 409® Multipurpose Cleaner to aid in your cleanup.
When it comes to abrasion resistance, EverSoft rates at 100,000 double rubs (Cotton Test), which means it can withstand everyday wear and tear with ease. If you’re curious about how fabric is rated for abrasion resistance and what it means for your next DIY, check out the blog “What Are Double Rubs and the Wyzenbeek Test?” (#300100XHT). You can rest assured that EverSoft will last — even in areas that experience high traffic and children.
Warranty: To ensure it stands up to the rigors of any environment, EverSoft promises a 3-year limited product warranty. This warranty covers any loss of strength, fabric failure and discoloration. In the rare event that this happens, Sailrite will refund the cost of the original fabric.
IMO Certified: EverSoft has earned the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Flame Retardant Certification for low flammability. The IMO Certification is a maritime fire safety test. The procedure involves testing the flammability of upholstery fabrics using a smoldering cigarette and a match flame. Fabrics that pass this strict and very prestigious fire safety test are certified to be used in commercial marine applications such as cruise ships and commercial yachts. To learn more about this crucial fire safety test and its importance, read our detailed blog “What Is the IMO Certification & Which Fabrics Have It?” (#300348XHT).
When it comes to selecting the best vinyl for home, patio, automotive and marine projects, EverSoft has what it takes to excel. From its special formulation to withstand stains and abrasion to its certifications and warranty, you can rest assured that EverSoft will withstand the test of time.
