With a significantly higher MVTR* than standard cover
fabrics, Dyna-Form® Vapour-Flow™ utilises our most
advanced moisture vapour transfer technologies.
Dyna-Form® Vapour-Flow™ has been designed specifically
for medical mattress applications in collaboration with Dartex
Coatings, world leaders in medical support surface fabrics.
Dyna-Form® Vapour-Flow™ is fire retardant to BS 7177: 2008+A1:2011
and has been tested extensively, both in independent laboratory tests and in demanding healthcare environments.
* Moisture Vapour Transfer Rate comparison; Dyna-Form® ® Vapour-Flow™ 50% versus Standard Fabric 8%.

The image shows the bundles of fibres in the knitted textile which is coated with a number of thin layers of moisture vapour permeable polyurethanes. This coating prevents the ingress of liquids through the fabric, but allows transmission of moisture vapour to improve the microclimate at the patient interface.
• Breathable coating at contact surface to help maintain
comfortable skin microclimate
• Creates waterproof and bacteria-proof barrier
• Contains pigment to make the material any desired colour
• Fire retardant
• Reinforces the topcoat for improved waterproof properties
• Breathable coating
• Bonds the Dyna-Form® ® Vapour-Flow™ layers to the fabric
• Breathable adhesive
• Provides physical strength and controls stretch properties
Whilst remaining completely waterproof, the unique molecular structure of Dyna-Form® Vapour-Flow™ allows water vapour to pass through up to five times faster than a standard fabric, producing a ‘cooling effect’ and helping to contribute to the control of both temperature and humidity. The wipe-clean cover fabric also features 4-way stretch to help minimise the effects of shear and friction forces.
