All fabrics has been awarded with the ‘Skin-Tolerant Textiles’ certification, following rigorous medical tests at the ITV (Institute of Textile Technology and Process Engineering) in Denkendorf, Germany. They all comply with the RAL-UZ 117 requirements for the ‘Blauer Engel’ certification and all Infinity yarns are certified in accordance with “Eco-Tex-Standard 100“ (Öko-Tex-Standard 100) and are ecologically safe.

Colourways have excellent fastness to acetone and chlorine. Infinity is resistant to saltwater/seawater and passes the flammability test according to EN 1021 Part 1 Cigarette Test or BS 5852 Part I Cigarette Test.

Care and cleaning properties

Infinity fabrics can be cleaned without using any special cleaning agents:
Water-soluble stains can be removed with warm water and shampoo (80% of all household stains are water-soluble) stains which are not water-soluble can be removed using solvents such as acetone discolouring caused by crocking of other textiles can be removed with a diluted solution of chlorine bleach (e.g. discolouring caused by denim jeans or cotton trousers).

How to maintain the beauty of Infinity fabrics:
_ Do not place any sources of heat (heating pads, hot-water bottles, ashes, irons, hot liquids, etc.) on the fabric.
_ Lustrous sitting and pressure marks are a typical phenomenon of all pile fabrics. Therefore Infinity Plus, Phönix and Infinity Cotton Feel always have to be stored and transported in hanging condition!
_ Infinity Plus, Phönix and Infinity Cotton Feel must not be stored when folded. Cut-to-size pieces should be processed immediately to minimize the occurance of pressure marks or shiny areas.
_ Slight folds can be equalised by warming the affected area of Infinity with a hair dryer (60° C). Afterwards brush the pile with a soft clothbrush.
_ Do not try to scrape or pull off encrusted stains. First soften the encrustation and proceed with the stain removal to ensure the integrity of the pile.
