All of our solution dyed acrylic fabrics have been tested and proven to provide up to 98% UV protection from the harmful effects of the sun depending on depth of color.
Whites and lighter colored fabrics provide less protection than darker fabrics, which have more depth of color. This protective factor is inherent to the fabric and will not be reduced by usage and/or fabric exposure to the sun. In addition lighter fabrics will repel slightly more heat than darker fabrics similar to white versus black paint on a vehicle.
