The future of upholstery fabrics has arrived with the unique combination of Mitchell faux leather silicone technology and their patented Sta-Kleen® formulation.
Silex is a 100% silicone coated fabric that delivers an exceptional glove-like hand feel with fabulous drapability, and a tough-as-nails performance for abrasion, lightfastness, superior cold crack and denim dye resistance. With amazing strength, excellent UV and remarkable durability, Silex is perfect for exterior and interior applications in the hospital, medical, aged care, office fit out, restaurant, marine, education and commercial upholstery markets.
Silex derives its name from a small town in Missouri USA which was known for silicone mining back in the late 1800’s.
Silex is not only the simplest of fabrics to clean, it is environmentally the "cleanest" synthetic leather fabric. Synthetic plasticisers, phthalates, chemical inhibitors, fire retardants etc. are simply not required due to the unique nature of silicone.
Naturally inert, fire resistant and chemical resistant, Silex is perfectly suited to the most demanding of applications where stain removal and vigorous cleaning regimes are necessary, such as hospitals and other medical and health facilities. Appropriate cleaning procedure is located under download specifications.
Silex is available in 35 gorgeous colours, 12 of which are stocked locally and marked ^ on the Colour Tab.
