Breathability – Why is it so important?

In the UK environment, water ingress and condensation are a fact of life. The ability of the fabric to breathe is essential in reducing dampness, heat build up and condensation. This in turn reduces the chances of problems such as, mould, mildew, osmosis etc. Modern coated acrylic canvas fabric has taken away the need to make a choice between a waterproof and a breathable fabric by offering a solution to both. Our fabrics are breathable, but still highly water resistant.


Will it affect the aircraft paint and surfaces?

Acrylic fabric is totally inert and soft, and therefore will not affect Perspex or Paint, either chemically or abrasively.


What about strength and abrasion?

We use 330gsm Acrylic canvas, which quite simply outperforms the competition. It has twice the strength of regular canvas and is more durable under abrasion and rubbing.


Why does Acrylic Canvas not fade?

With a solid solution dyed spun yarn the colour physically becomes part of the yarn itself. The solution dyed acrylic yarns ensure an excellent depth of colour in the fabric and have excellent UV and fade resistance.


Is the fabric protected against the elements?

Our acrylic fabrics have an additional impregnation that provides a water repellent finish and protects the fabric from general dirt, soiling and staining.
