The physical characteristics of technical textiles are derived as much from the manufacturing processes, as they are from the components used in their production. The improved TXA-F series includes a titanium dioxide (TiO2) reinforced PVC coating and a bilaterally applied PVDF lacquer on both sides.
This multi-layered coating structure will further enhance UV resistance and colour fastness, whilst retaining excellent high frequency and hot air welding characteristics without the need for surface grinding. Backed by a superior 15-year warranty, this series is available in a variety of colours, strengths, weights, thickness, textures and translucency.
Verseidag membrane fabrics offer high levels of protection against environmental influences such as wind, sun, rain, micro-organisms, dust and other pollutants. However, regular inspection and cleaning of the material will ensure longer aesthetic performance and maintain greater functionality of the product.
Innova recommends a regular inspection routine is established with your fabrication expert and extraordinay checks are made after significant events such as heavy storms, snowfall, hailstorms, or heavy objects falling on the membrane.
General cleaning procedures:
The cleaning procedure should be carried out as follows whilst observing all local Occupational Health and Safety regulations.
- Lay membrane flat on a clean and smooth surface (where possible) – avoid damaging the fabric by walking on it with inappropriate footwear.
- Rinse away any dirt on surface using clean cold/warm water.
- Apply a lukewarm pH neutral (range 6 - 8) soap solution with a soft brush (nylon) or sponge to remove any dirt or soiling.
- Remove soap residue and rinse thoroughly with clear water.
- Dry surface thoroughly.
Cleaning Specific Stains:
Pollutant build up that is difficult to remove using the above cleaning procedures may comprise the following:
- A build-up of mineral origin: grease, tar, calcareous sedimentation...
- A build-up of vegetable origin: leaves, pollens, resins...
- A build-up of animal origin: bird droppings, dead insects...
The nature of the above substances can pose stubborn cleaning challenges; however, the use of solvents could damage the membrane and in turn would void any fabric warranty. Therefore, before any action is taken, it is recommended you contact a cleaning specialist for advice.
