staynu Technology. Designed for Life.

Makes Surfaces More Dirt-resistant and Durable Than Ever Before

If it still looks new after years of intensive use, it's staynu. This revolutionary technology makes Continental upholstery fabrics particularly dirt-resistant and hard-wearing. staynu is the new, invisible, pleasant-to-the-touch, soft protective coating for numerous skai® interior fabrics. Perfect for real life.

Innovation With High Dirt Resistance and Ease of Cleaning

Thanks to the innovative, especially-resistant surface finish from staynu technology, regular maintenance of heavily frequented surfaces is easier than ever. A special coating seals the surface so that dirt particles rarely stick to it or – if they do – cannot penetrate deep into the coating. Even intentional damage is no reason to re-purchase or even replace the furniture. Amongst other things, suitable cleaning agents can be used to remove this soiling without leaving a mark:

  • Permanent markers, ballpoint pens, gel pens
  • Foods such as ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise
  • Drinks such as fruit juices, cola, coffee, red wine
  • Cosmetics such as lipstick, makeup
  • Dye that comes off jeans and even shoe cream

Thanks to the special surface finish, skai® fabrics with staynu technology do not gradually fade when continuously exposed to light – the surface is light-resistant. 

Cleaning Made Easy

For light soiling, such as from foodstuffs, we recommend regular cleaning with mild soap or skai® cleaners and a microfiber cloth. Stubborn stains can be removed without leaving a mark if immediately treated with isopropanol or white spirit. You do not need to treat the surface with special care products; it is essential to avoid scouring or bleaching agents. As always, please test on a hidden location first.
