Sunbrella™ is the premiere name in durable, long-life outdoor fabrics. The name and product has an unsurpassed reputation worldwide. The reason Sunbrella products are so widely used and preferred is simple: Sunbrella not only looks terrific, but will also last outdoors for years. That‘s because Sunbrella is solution-dyed, which means the color is placed into the fibers as they are extruded. Sun, wind and rain will never diminish the color intensity. Furthermore, Sunbrella is made out of acrylic, so that it resists moisture and mildew, and won’t harden or crack, unlike many other fibers. For protective covers, Sunbrella is soft, promotes breathability and can be fabricated into a product that you will be proud to own for years.
Stamoid is a vinyl-coated woven polyester material that can be used for a wide variety of applications: console covers, spray hoods, convertible tops, mooring covers, dodgers, biminis, awnings, and protective covers. Stamoid is completely waterproof, easy to clean, cool to sit under, and folds and stores well. The high-tenacity weave holds its shape and does not show the humidity-related sagging problems common to lower grade marine fabrics.
WEBLON® is a lamination of two plies of specially-formulated vinyl, with an inner, reinforcing core fabric woven from high-strength polyester yarns. WEBLON’s exclusive Rain Kleen finish on the weather-side provides ease of cleaning, prolongs the life of the fabric, and adds a pleasing surface finish. WEBLON® offers exceptional mildew resistance and is also waterproof. The extreme strength and multi-directional stretch resistance, including the bias direction, affords superior contouring and lasting, trim fit.
Bayer® Makrolon® is a durable, transparent extruded polycarbonate sheet that can be utilized to fabricate extremely long-lasting enclosures. Makrolon is less brittle than acrylic but offers the same level of crystal-clear transparency, ensuring maximum visibility. Makrolon cleans easily, resists sun, rain, and salt, and resists scratching, yellowing and scuffing, meaning that your enclosures will continue to look new for a long period of time.
Strataglass is a press-polished, scratch-resistant vinyl that blocks out 94% of the harmful spectrum of UV light. Strataglass is designed for any application in today’s environment: from boat curtains to automotive windows, tent and awning applications– anywhere perfection of clarity and lack of distortion are demanded.
The key benefit of choosing Strataglass is the scratch-resistant coating that maintains its new look for years. The near-perfect clarity of Strataglass allows for maximum vision in rain or shine.
Strataglass’ protective coating is uniquely resistant to today’s harsh environment and industrial fallout. The coating prevents these elements from leaching into the vinyl, allowing a cleaner look and longer life expectancy for your vinyl. This coating also locks in the plasticizer, which prevents Strataglass from turning yellow and becoming brittle over time.
Use Strataglass wherever you need a durable, crystal-clear vinyl product. Its only limit is your imagination.
GORE® TENARA® thread is a Teflon sewing thread that ensures maximum durability and quality. GORE® TENARA® thread is the perfect choice that simply does not fade or deteriorate due to sunlight, weather, cleaning agents, salt, or decay. Its UV resistance is built into the thread, and is not a coating or additive that can wear off over time. It is stain-resistant and easy to clean. TENARA® thread is made with non-fading pigments that are highly resistant to light and colored thread retains its bold appearance over time. GORE® TENARA® Sewing Thread is pigmented–not dyed. GORE® TENARA® thread is a standard we are proud to offer to our customers in all of our products.
