ACE is environmentally friendly
It's a chemical treatment which has been in use for over 15 years. ACE also contains a Soil & Stain Repellent and as such, materials already with a similar finish are not suitable for treatment, as this will inhibit the compound absorption.
ACE is Dry Clean durable
but will pass the 30 minute soak for Upholstery testing, BS 5651. Suitable fabrics can after treatment achieve Domestic & Contract Upholstery, Curtain & Bedspread standards, thus making this a multi purpose treatment.
A note of caution
Chenille or Pile fabrics may not suitable for this process, as the pile can be ‘crushed’ during the impregnation stage. We strongly advise a trial before production, to be sure there are no adverse effects. Some High Linen content fabrics can be affected by the ACE process, with a potential for a ‘shade’ change. We will need 2–3 meters for these trials, along with the fibre content & percentages. Samples will also be subjected to an independent UKAS test at out favoured Test House, TLS in Leeds.
Please state on your instructions, which Standard/s are required when sending in fabric for orders or trials. Thank you.
