100% Solution-Dyed Acrylic Fabrics
100% solution-dyed acrylic fabrics are ideal for residential awnings, marine applications, and most outdoor situations. When acrylic is 100% solution-dyed, you get a bright, clear, and colorful fabric that appears the same from either side.
In the solution dyeing process, the color becomes an integral part of the fiber by being added when the fiber is still in liquid form. This gives the awning fabric an unbeatable colorfastness without fading. These fabrics can be woven in a wide variety of solid colors and stripes.
Vinyl Laminated Polyester Fabrics
Vinyl laminated polyester fabrics are ideal for welded frame awnings with commercial graphics. They work well in sunny, high-humidity areas due to their waterproofing and resistance to UV rays and mildew. They feature a matte finish that's ideal for the adhesion of most types of graphics.
