Material Cleaning Guide

9to5 Seating’s broad selection of high-performance textiles includes vinyl/PVC, polyurethane, silicone, and Crypton® options. Although each fabric type has its unique characteristics, all of them resist moisture and stains, are easy to clean and disinfect, and are available in a variety of different patterns and textures. Download some of our most popular performance performance options and their cleanability data here.

In addition to offering selections from our own label, we’ve partnered with some of the most trusted brands in the industry for even more choice: CF Stinson, Knoll, Maharam, Momentum, and Ultrafabrics.

9to5 Seating Mesh, Plastic, and Metal

All of these surfaces can be disinfected with a 1:10 ratio of bleach to water. Following the application of the bleach application, remember to wipe down with water, and dry with a clean cloth.

Vinyl/PVC

Vinyl is known for its ethylene-based coating that laminates the textile. This coating enables it to easily withstand stains, spills and many chemical cleaners. It is an excellent choice for those that are cost-conscious while still requiring design flexibility. Vinyl is not biodegradable and contains phthalates.

Polyurethane

The key to polyurethane longevity is the plastic-based resin. PU fabrics are generally softer than vinyl and can mimic other textiles with ease – even leather. PU is breathable and does not retain heat.

Silicone

Sand is processed into silicone monomers and polymers that result in a textile that is inherently anti-fungal and anti-mildew. Silicone is also a non-toxic and stain-resistant choice. Even ink and marker lifts with ease. It will not crack or peel.

Crypton®

Crypton’s patented technology repels both water- and oil-based stains. This technology also gives it its inherent moisture barrier while also being breathable. With its soft hand, Crypton options are virtually indistinguishable from woven fabrics.

Creating safer environments is our shared goal. Please contact your local 9to5 Seating Sales Rep for any help you may need choosing a high-performance textile for your seating.

ANYWHERE & EVERYWHERE. Omnia fits in any workspace – collaborative areas, conference rooms, touchdown spaces, open environments, and beyond.

DESIGNED TO FIT YOUR MOVEMENT. Sit up straight…or not.  Shift, tilt, and face left or right.  Whatever your favorite posture is, Omnia supports it.

EFFORTLESS COMFORT. It’s never been easier to adjust your chair.  Omnia’s intuitive integrated controls are at your fingertips. Tilt back, lock it upright, move up or down, all at the flick of a lever.

ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT. Omnia’s featherweight frame allows you to move it around freely.
