Furniture Upholstery; Indoor and Outdoor

Multi-directional strength, durable, abrasion resistant, uniform surface, anti-soil, washable, quick drying, breathable and easy soil release are all inherent attributes that make Madaline® a great upholstery fabric. Even at the lower weights Madaline® has successfully passed the burst test requirements for upholstery material and Madaline® is lint-free and low-pilling; all of which make it a superior upholstery material compared to microfibers.


Madaline® does not use PVC, solvents or binders during its production therefore no toxic gases are released when exposed to fire. Madaline® is free of VOC (volatile organic compounds) and meets tighter odor regulations.


Madaline® has exceptional capability for enhanced printing and dyeing with stunning visual results. The natural matte color of Madaline® is an excellent base to bond sharp printed images and dye with lively and deep colors.


Madaline® fabrics for upholstery can be printed or dyed. These printed or dyed fabrics can also be laminated with traditional textiles to give the resultant fabric a heavier and ‘full’ fee.


Madaline® can also be used to upholster outdoor furniture and cushions for the garden, restaurants, café’s, etc.


Treatments include hydrophobic, fire retardant, UV protection, oil repellent, softened, and flocked surface.


Madeline® has the wet friction strength required for the upholstery.

Technical Features

Multi-Directional Tensile StrengthMulti-Directional Tensile StrengthMadaline®, as a light weight fabric, has strong multidirectional tensile and tear strength. Additionally, Madaline® poses multidimensional stability due to its endless microfilaments which when entangled consolidate to form a uniformly stable fabric. These attributes make Madaline® an excellent material for the production of home furnishings, uniforms, outdoor active wear, vehicle interiors, etc.Bursting StrengthBursting StrengthMadaline® has been tested for bursting strength in accordance with ISO 13938-1:1999 and achieved a Class A performance level rating.Barrier Against House Dust Mites and High Bacterial Filtration EfficiencyBarrier Against House Dust Mites and High Bacterial Filtration EfficiencyMadaline® is inherently a barrier to the passage of dust mite particles with its intricate entanglement of very fine microfilaments. This web formation blocks mite particles to offer protection to those with mite allergies. Madaline® is also a very efficient filter of microorganisms and bacteria.Cutting, Stitching and Non-Fraying EdgesCutting, Stitching and Non-Fraying EdgesDue to multi-directional strength and endless microfilaments Madaline® is cut without fraying and stitching is secure and long-lasting. Traditional textile converting processes are used to efficiently convert Madaline® into finished products. Products converted from Madaline® have been washed up with no degradation of the stitching nor fraying of the ends or surfaces.Lint-Free and Low PillingLint-Free and Low PillingMadaline® is lint-free and low pilling due to its microfilaments which have no ends protruding from the fabric. Madaline® does not release fluff from friction during cleaning, when washing and rubbing experienced as packaging material. Being lint-free also mitigates the build-up of electrostatic charge which can damage electronic equipment and parts.Resistance to Abrasion Resistance to AbrasionCompared to traditional woven and knit textiles, Madaline® is durable to abrasion and therefore low-pilling. The high strength nylon component of Madaline® mitigates filaments from snapping under abrasive friction and breaking free onto the surface.Cost EffectiveCost EffectiveMadaline is multi-washable but retains its construction, performance and shape over a long lifetime. Treatments such as easy soil release during washing lowers detergent cost and especially, its inherent characteristic to dry quickly reduces energy consumption and saves time.Environmentally FriendlyEnvironmentally FriendlyThe Madaline® production process is environmentally friendly, using recycled water, has negligible C02 emissions, and uses less energy than traditional textiles. Madaline® is performance oriented therefore less fabric is needed to achieve similar performance compared to traditional textiles.

Madaline® fills the gap in textiles with a high performance, multi-use and smart fabric that has reduced environmental impact.
