What is solution Dyed fabric and how is it made?READ MORE
POLYACRYLIC (or more simply acrylic) fibre is a general term used to describe all those fibres containing at least 85% of acrylonitrile monomer. The solution dyed acrylic fibre represents today the material mainly used all over the world in the production of outdoor covers such as sun protection , marine covers, and garden furniture.
Of course, to obtain an excellent acrylic fabric for outdoor uses, it is of course necessary to use the best fibre available. But, careful consideration for the spinning, weaving and finishing is very important. Quality control is of fundamental importance. Only if all three functions are performed with absolute quality in mind is it possible to obtain a fabric with features suitable for outdoor purposes and retractable awning and shade use.
At the end of the weaving, the fabric is submitted to the FINISHING process, which main purpose is to add further technical features to the fabric using chemical products. First, the fabric is submitted to an intense washing procedure in water and soap to remove possible impurities accumulated during the previous manufacturing phases. After that, the fabric is immersed into a basin including a mixture of chemical products that are allowed to penetrate into the fibre. Para / Tempotest uses the internationally known TEFLON coating to make the fabric water, oil and mould resistant. Now we have a fabric that will perform well on our awning systems that will last many years without fading or being soiled by dirt.
