With the seemingly unlimited variety of Performance Fabrics available on the market today, many may wonder – what is the best choice for my lifestyle? We want every Pacific piece looking like new forever – or at least until you are sick of it. We thought it might be helpful to provide a little info on a few of the most asked for fabric treatment options on the market, so you can help your clients make an informed decision.
Alta™ is the latest water-based high-performance technology that repels both water & oil based stains. It is the only technology that is engineered to provide the correct level of protection for each application (environment) that it is specified in to include fire code compliance. Alta™ technology is bonded permanently to the individual fibers with a covalent bond, it will not wear off or wash off. Alta™ is durable to spot cleaning, commercial laundering and dry cleaning.
Most generic stain finishes are topical, temporary, and will wash or wear off. Alta™ is bonded permanently to the fiber and will last the life of the fabric. Unbranded soil and stain can often make fabrics burn, Alta™ does just the opposite making fabrics meet the correct fire code. Unbranded soil and stain finishes do not make any claims to efficacy while Alta™ displays each level of benefit. Our competitors’ technologies are designed to provide the same level of performance on a fabric no matter the end environment, which leads to over engineering fabrics, higher cost, and fabrics under performing based on the demand of the environment.
