Sunbrella offers the best protection from wind, sunlight and rain. On one side, the fabrics have a breathable acrylic water-resistant coating that forms a barrier against the penetration of condensation and moisture and increases mould resistance. Sunbrella fabrics are soft to the touch and are machine-washable.
Water and stain resistant
Due to a fluorocarbon treatment, Sunbrella fabrics absorb little to no moisture, which prevents the penetration of stains and greasy substances.
Sunbrella® textiles are made exclusively from Sunbrella® fibres. This new generation of acrylic fibres developed by Dickson’s Research & Development team is mass-dyed, meaning that the colour pigments are added during the fibre production process instead of afterwards, as is the case with most yarns and fabrics. That is why the colours withstand the test of time so well and do not fade, even after many hours of exposure to sunlight and varying weather conditions. The best way to describe this is to imagine a carrot, which is orange through and through. This also applies for Sunbrella fabrics, which are even resistant to chloride. Fabrics that have been dyed after the fibre production process can be compared to radishes, which means that, in time, they will fade. Sunbrella is the best ranking outdoor fabric in the world.
Sunbrella® textiles are Oeko-Tex certified. They do not contain any ingredients that might harm the skin, health or environment. Sunbrella® ensures maximum UV protection and is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation (UPF 50+ = 100% blocking of UV-radiation).
