PreFixx Extreme™ Sets New Standard for Extreme Cleanability on Nautolex® Performance Products

Published on 2007-10-16. Author : SpecialChem

FAIRLAWN -- OMNOVA Solutions has announced the availability of PreFixx Extreme™-the most advanced protective finish available till date-on its industry-leading Nautolex® performance marine products.

The family of PreFixx protective finishes sets the industry standard for upholstery protection. For years, Nautolex upholsteries with PreFixx protection have been a "must" for both boat manufacturers and owners. Now, OMNOVA is launching an even greater level of protection, offering extreme cleanability and durability. Nautolex marine products protected with PreFixx Extreme will provide boat owners years of performance with minimal maintenance. Stains bead up and can be easily wiped away without the need for any harsh cleaning chemicals. OMNOVA has taken its "Often Imitated, Never Duplicated" wipe-clean finish to the next level, providing extreme cleanability, and unbeatable abrasion and stain resistance to the marine industry.

Compared to unprotected upholstery, Nautolex upholstery protected with PreFixx Extreme, shows improved abrasion resistance from 6,000 to 60,000 cycles using a stainless steel wire screen. PreFixx Extreme also minimizes surface scuffs and scratches, keeping upholstery looking like new longer.

PreFixx Extreme protection will be heralded by boat manufacturers for providing easy delivery of "showroom shine" to the sales floor and buyer. Manufacturing floors, assembly processes, testing labs and transit of finished products can leave behind marks-some impossible to remove! With PreFixx Extreme, grease, grime, ink and dirt simply wipe away with a clean cloth, resulting in improved speed to market.

Witness this exciting new protective finish at the 2007 International Boatbuilders Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) in Miami Beach, Florida, October 10-12, where OMNOVA will be demonstrating how PreFixx Extreme again raises the bar for extreme cleanability and durability. In addition to the demonstration, visitors can see the new Nautolex designs and meet members of the OMNOVA team, including designers who help to provide the industry-leading Design First CollaborativeSM service.

Nautolex marine upholsteries lead the way in design and performance. Designed for the rigors of harsh outdoor environments and with a wide range of both interior and exterior products, Nautolex Performance Upholstery Fabrics enable boat manufacturers to fill their needs with a single source. With a custom design lab featuring over 500 textures and a best-of-class color lab, OMNOVA stands ready to meet the needs of its customers.
