At one-third wider, high-performance WeatherMAX from Safety Components is now available in an 80-inch width, according to an August press release.
The release said that this new introduction stems from international demand and from original equipment manufacturers (OEM) programs.
The press release noted that with its new 80-inch width, WeatherMAX offers manufacturers the freedom to explore fresh applications and provide customers with a top-quality fabric. Additionally, fewer seams and less waste mean lower costs.
The UV-resistant WeatherMAX, woven from 100 percent pigment solution-dyed SaturaMax, is finished with breathable HydroMax for water, dirt and mildew resistance. The release said that, in testing, it routinely out-performs acrylic and polyester outdoor fabrics for strength, color fastness and abrasion-resistance. Available colors in the 80-inch width are black, light charcoal and captain navy.
The release said that Safety Components’ high-performance fire, military, auto air bag, technical and outdoor fabrics and its ability to weave custom fabric creates new opportunities for manufacturers.
The press release noted that the full line of Safety Components’ WeatherMAX technical fabrics and its new yacht fabric, Breakwater X, will be on display at the International Boatbuilders Exposition & Conference (IBEX), Sept. 15–17, in Louisville, Ky., booth 1325.
