C F Stinson Wins Coveted Recognition Award

C.F. Stinson Inc., Rochester Hills, Mich., recently announced that its Jacquard Plus seating fabric has won the Best of Neocon Gold Award as the contract furniture industrys Best New Healthcare Fabric. The award was presented during the Neocon World Trade Fair, held recently in Chicago.The solution-dyed nylon fabric is setting new standards of cleanability, durability and performance in the rapidly growing healthcare and hospitality industries, said Glenn Stinson, the companys vice president.This product is the ultimate fabric for demanding environments such are hospitals, restaurants, casinos, hotels and other high-use settings where fabrics are subjected to stains, spills and cleaning with harsh cleaning agents like bleach or other solvent-based cleaners, he added.Jacquard Plus was created by combining the performance advantage of the Millennium process from MillikenandCo. with the solution-dyed nylon woven fabric of Culp Inc. According to Stinson, the durability of the fabric is unmatched. In industry-standard abrasion tests, Jacquard Plus exceeded the requirement for a Heavy Duty rating by 10 times (300,000 double rubs).The seating fabric also features a unique moisture and fluid barrier that prevents stains and liquids from penetrating the fabric.The 10th annual Best of Neocon new product competition honored products introduced in the U.S market during the year.
