Incredibly soft to the touch and carefully curated to coordinate with our existing vinyl and upholstery options, our Sydney coated polyurethane upholstery fabric are great for using in environments where furniture needs to look professional but hold up to regular use.
Polyurethane, commonly referred to as ‘PU’, is fabric coated in a polymer that gives it the appearance of leather. Polyurethane elastomers are a polymer, meaning repeating chains of molecules, that can be shaped into a material used to create fabric. When these elastomers are spun into fibers, they produce a flexible material used for fabric.
Highly resilient, flexible, and durable material, Polyurethane is very versatile and can be manufactured in various forms – to be hard like fiberglass, spongy as upholstery foam, robust and protective when used as varnish, elastic like rubber, or very sticky as an adhesive. PU is becoming increasingly popular as an upholstery material, as it is PVC free and offers a combination of unique benefits including durability, suppleness, breathability, and an attractive appearance.

The flexible nature of polyurethane allows for the ability to be imprinted with different textures. It is commonly used to create rich, and realistic faux leather. Polyurethane fabrics won’t break down, crack, or develop sun damage under normal conditions. Sydney coated upholstery fabric is made with Writer’s Block, which makes these fabrics easier to clean.
Writer’s Block is a proprietary ink resistant technology for faux leather that offers the highest level of cleanability. With its repel and release stain-inhibiting system, Writer’s Block prevents ink and other stains from setting into the material and allows for easy cleaning. Writer’s Block also offers excellent cleaning of other tough food and healthcare stains including mustard, coffee, red wine, iodine, or blood.
