Decorative vinyl leader Morbern introduces first flame-retardant-free product

Morbern, the leader in decorative vinyl upholstery for hospitality, healthcare and contract markets, has introduced the Bloom Collection, the company’s first flame-retardant-free vinyl. Mobern is the first manufacturer to bring an FR-free vinyl to the commercial interiors market.

“Bloom is customer driven,” says Morbern VP of Sales Doug McClendon. “The needs of the architecture and design community are constantly changing, and Bloom provides a solution for their current challenge to find FR-free materials.

Bloom is anti-bacterial and anti- microbial, with a stain-resistant finish and enhanced abrasion resistance (no wear at 100,000 double rubs) to meet the demands of high-traffic interiors.

Bloom features Modbern’s exclusive MGX MorGuard Xtreme stain-resistant and cleanable topcoat that protects against – and easily cleans – the toughest soiling agents – including denim, mustard, marker and ballpoint pen. Most stains can be effortlessly cleaned using warm, soapy water and clear water rinses.

The Bloom collection is available in three patterns (City, Radio, Holly) and 11 colours ranging from black and white to vibrant blues, yellow, red and green.


Established in 1956, Morbern is North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of decorative vinyl upholstery for the contract, healthcare, hospitality, automotive and marine markets. Headquartered in Cornwall, ON, with U.S. offices in High Point, North Carolina, it operated nine manufacturing and distribution centres across the continent.
