SOME FACTS ABOUT SUNBRELLA COVERS
- Long Lasting Strength - Acrylic fibers suffer minimal loss of strength from exposure to heat, moisture and UV.
- Fade Resistant - Colors are a result of pigments which are actually built into the fibers (solution dyed), instead of just dying the finished fabric.
- Water Resistant - Treated for moisture resistance (but remember, this material is primarily for UV protection).
- Rot, Mildew Resistant - Acrylic fibers resist growth that occurs in moist environments.
- Material colors available - Pacific Blue (D1), Sky Blue (D2), Cadet Gray (D4), Jet Black (D5), Toast (D6)

Thanks to it's unique construction process Sunbrella provides protection, and years of service, in intense sun areas, like Arizona and other areas of the sun-belt, where UV rays will rapidly degrade the paint and interior. Because of the use of acrylic fibers, which are naturally UV resistant, Sunbrella has long been the recognized leader in long-wearing marine fabrics for bimni tops, sail covers and deck enclosures. Besides marine uses, Sunbrella is also used for commercial awnings due to it's ability in providing UV blockage with a rich, woven finish. The acrylic fibers are solution dyed, before the fabric is woven, to assure the color goes all the way through the fabric. Using a special finish process, the material is then softened for use as a car cover fabric. The fabric is exceptionally strong and coupled with it's UV resistance it also makes an excellent cover for RV's and trailers that spend extended time stored outside.
