FAIRLAWN, OHIO -- OMNOVA Solutions introduces Prevaill® upholstery with PreFixx Extreme™ Protective Finish for the mass transit markets, featuring a revolutionary graffiti-resistant protective finish applied to the company's leading fire-block transportation seating construction.

Prevaill for Transit is a line of heavy-duty vinyl coated upholsteries designed and manufactured to meet the performance needs as well the smoke generation, toxicity, and flammability requirements of the mass transit and rail industry as defined by the Federal Transit Administration including NFPA130, DOT 49 CFR, Part 216 et al. and Docket 90A.

Prevaill with PreFixx Extreme offers extreme cleanability, stain resistance and extended wear. With the advanced PreFixx Extreme protective finish, stains 'bead-up' and are easily wiped clean helping buses and trains retain a 'like-new' appearance longer. Paint, permanent marker, food and other stubborn soils and stains are easily removed with no harsh cleaning chemicals. The PreFixx Extreme protective finish creates a barrier to resist stains from penetrating the vinyl, resulting in successful cleaning even after the stain has been in place for days.
