Amexcoat™ is a new coating system that can be applied to most flexible foam products where comfort, protection or cushioning is required. Amexcoat™ products add strength and integrity to the foam while providing a high-end washable finish that is reusable and provides longer product life compared to most fabrics.
In addition to being durable, Amexcoat™ coated finishes are available in standard colors of blue and gray but can be formulated to custom colors with minimum production requirements. Our unique process can also eliminate the need for fabric covers which can become soiled and/or absorb contaminants, which may collect in the fabric stitching. We can even customize the appearance to a satin look or to a brilliant high gloss finish to give your product an impressive appearing sheen.
Amexcoat™ coatings can be found in such applications as: Medical for positioning or medical pads; Recreational for specialty indoor/outdoor uses; Marine for flotation pads; Athletic for such items as gymnastic equipment and multiple other uses and markets. In addition, an antimicrobial additive is available which helps reduce the growth of mildew and bacteria. If you want your product to have a durable, washable, attractive outer covering without fabrics, Amexcoat™ is your answer!
