Removes dirt with one easy wipe, without leaving any marks
Johnson Controls, a global industrial company with core businesses in the automotive, building, and battery industry, has developed a coating for fabrics that keeps automotive seats clean and hygienic. The coating repels dirt and liquid, and protects passengers from microbes and static.
"Seat covers are subject to heavy use throughout a vehicle's lifetime. To prevent damage caused by spilled coffee, ketchup, a child's dirty hands or microbes, for example, we have developed FreshPer4mance," said Peter Heift, group vice president and general manager trim at Johnson Controls Automotive Seating.
FreshPer4mance is a highly effective coating that can be applied to all cover fabrics. For optimum, long-lasting protection, Johnson Controls coats the entire fabric - not just one side - in the new product. FreshPer4mance makes textiles liquid-repellent, stain-resistant, antistatic and antimicrobial. All sorts of stubborn dirt can be removed with one easy wipe, without leaving any marks.
This makes the seats easier to keep clean, hygienic and odor free. FreshPer4mance is ideal for heavily used seat covers in commercial vehicles, as well as for vehicles with constantly changing drivers, e.g. rental cars, car-sharing and pool vehicles. It also increases the cleanliness and value of private vehicles.
FreshPer4mance enables automakers to expand their range of trim fabrics to include lighter colors and thus offer their customers more distinctive and customized vehicle options.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
