FAQs

How do you apply Fresche treatments?


Fresche is a liquid, applied either directly to the polyol prior to mixing or via the mix head during pouring. Fresche is not a suspension, so it will not create blockages or cause pump cavitation.




Is it compatable with Urethane Chemistry?


Yes! During foam manufacture, Fresche is injected with the polyol to disburse evenly throughout the foam. It is fully compatible with conventional urethane chemistry and will not char, discolor, harden or cause odour. Fresche concentrates become an integral part of the foam chemistry during manufacture, in some cases allowing manufacturers to reduce or eliminate raw material inputs. It is also compatible with other ancillary coatings such as fire retardants or waterproofing compounds, although prior testing should be undertaken to validate your compounds. Fresche products are the world's first silane quat that can easily be incorporated into urethane foams as it's stabilised in a liquid non-flammable carrier.




What is it effective against?


Substrates treated with Fresche become effective against*: - Fungi - Bacteria - Mould - Dust Mites - Viruses - Protozea - Gram Negative - Gram Positive *Not all claims can be made in all markets.




Can you use it with rebonded materials?


Absolutely — we even recommend it. Rebonded foams manufactured using recycled foam stock can often have significantly high levels of fungal infestation. Fresche offers a program of unique duel function formulations with an initial flash kill agent, together with long term, durable microbial protection of the treated substrate.




How effective is it against dust mites?


House Dust Mites (HDM) are an unwelcome but prevalent guest in most homes. Fresche concentrates have been demonstrated on both polyurethane foam and textiles to be completely effective at controlling HDM populations. Using test standard AFNOR NF G 39-011, treated textile and bedding foam was subjected to a six week trial to assess the efficacy of Fresche on the development of HDM (Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus), when compared to the development on untreated fabrics and foams. Both Textiles and Foam treated with Fresche gave a complete control of the dust mite population, whilst the untreated controls showed greater than 17 fold increases in the mite populations. * Not all claims can be made in all markets.




Are Fresche treatments harmful?


Fresche is easy to apply, bonds to the foam, delivers optimum microbial protection and lasts the service life of the foam product. Foam treated with Fresche is free of fugitive chemical pesticides and heavy metals, and ideal for people and the environment. Fresche offers powerful microbial control and protection for foam mattress bedding in hospital, aged care and child care settings, where nosocomial and other infection issues are a serious infection control problem.
