Sunbrella brings Sunbrella Assure fluorine-free textile

Sunbrella has unveiled Sunbrella Assure, a new fluorine-free textile that brings water repellency, stain resistance and enhanced durability. These new fabrics bring opportunities for creating healthy and sustainable indoor and outdoor spaces, while maintaining high performance, design and function standards. The fabrics also stay soft to the touch.

Sunbrella Assure offers stain resistance through a proprietary bio-based formula that combats the absorption of water-based spills and messes without the use of fluorochemicals. Oil-based stains can be removed easily by following the cleaning and care guide. Sunbrella Assure is also highly durable, with abrasion resistance up to 100,000 double rubs. The new fabric delivers on high-performance standards while maintaining design and function standards, as well as staying soft to the touch.

"Sunbrella Assure is yet another example of how we continue to build on our legacy of smart design and environmentally conscious actions," said Steve Pawl, chief marketing officer at Sunbrella. "Sunbrella Assure brings together the benefits of fluorine-free technology with the leading design, performance and warranty that we're known for and has been counted on for 60 years."

Sunbrella Assure is also fade-resistant, bleach-cleanable and able to be sanitised, PFC-free, Greenguard Gold certified, meets Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and Facts Silver Certifications, and is compliant with the Healthier Hospitals Initiative (HHI) and Prop 65.

The first collection, Balance featuring Sunbrella Assure, includes six different patterns in 43 colours and is available now from CF Stinson in partnership with Sunbrella Contract.
