Bella-Dura is a performance fabric made with a proprietary solution dyed polyolefin fiber, which resists abrasion, light, stain, microbes, and mildew. Bella-Dura fabric can be used on a wide range of residential or commercial environments including outdoor, hospitality, healthcare, and marine. Bella-Dura fabric can be safely bleach-cleaned and also is durable to common cleaners and disinfectants. Bella-Dura fabric is Marine Equipment Directive (MED) certified and IMO certified when the IMO finish is applied. With GreenShield finish, Bella-Dura fabric is also certified Cradle to Cradle Silver.  With the closed loop recycling program, the fibers can be re-extruded up to ten times or be converted into black plastic resin pallets.
