Polyester Army Duck
Superior protection and very tough. Specially finished to our specifications. Non-shrinking, non-stretching, non-absorbent, mildew resistant 100% polyester army duck 14 oz. per yard. Superior combination of water repellency and abrasion resistance. Outstanding for trailing and excellent resistance to sun's UV damage. Lasts longer than acrylic or canvas.
100% acrylic fiber silicone coated for water repellency. Very resistant to rot, mildew, shrinking, fading, or stiffening. Breathable acrylic marine duck is a long lasting mooring cover material due to its excellent resistance to damaging UV rays of the sun. White acrylic is best for your boat due to its much lower heat retention. However, colored acrylic does last longer due to the dye in the fabric. Ideally suited for well-sloped enclosures as leaks when flat. Low abrasion resistance so not as tough as poly for trailing. Also, we do not recommend acrylic for trailing.
Boatshrunk, mildew resistant, breathable pearl grey (pale green) cotton fiber. Today's canvas lasts 1/2 as it use to because the mills are no longer allowed to use the same chemicals that so effectively protected it from mildew.
Specially water repellant material with white flannel-like inside for bottom, rudder, daggerboard, and tiller covers. Flannel inside acts like a polishing cloth and keeps racing surfaces smooth and clean.
Special polyester fabric which has a urethane coating which adds to the stability of the weave and makes the cover more water resistant as well as shrink/stretch resistant.
- High UV and mildew / mold resistance
- Highly water resistant
- Excellent tear and abrasion resistance
- Non-abrasive to gelcoat or other popular marine finishes
- Light weight makes putting bottom covers on easier than Napbac
Adding an acrylic skirt to a poly cover is a great way to get the durability of our polyester while reducing the over all cover weight. We have been able to find materials that complement each other extremely well.
