Interpolymer alloy fabric

January 1st, 2013 / By: / Fabric & Film

Marine fabrics are expected to resist mold and mildew, retain their color, and stand up to wear and tear despite constant outdoor exposure. Additionally, sustained fabric flexibility has been a desirable, but elusive, attribute with coated fabrics. Safety Components Fabric Technologies of Greenville, S.C., now has the answer with Breakwater X. This new interpolymer alloy remains soft in punishing environments and is backed by a 10-year warranty. Breakwater X is a premium interpolymer alloy fabric that does not rely on plasticizers to remain soft and pliable. At only 13.1 ounces per square yard, it retains all the advantages of a lightweight fabric and offers maximum resistance to prolonged exposure to salt water, heat and UV rays. Breakwater X meets ASTM standards for abrasion resistance, strength and the ability to withstand temperature extremes, delivers significantly better tear resistance than comparable fabrics, and is covered by a 10-year warranty, double the five-year warranty period offered by other companies on competitive fabrics.
