Block-It 380: Deluxe Performance at a value price.
380 Series fabric is Kimberly-Clarks newest film barrier fabric, offering great performance at a competitive price. At 3.2 ounces per square yard, its about half the weight of the popular high-performance NOAH fabric. The three-layer construction uses inner and outer layers of spunbond, sandwiching a middle layer protective film barrier. The film barrier has microscopic holes, smaller than droplets of water (and most dust particles), to stop moisture but still allow any moisture vapor or heat to easily escape from under the cover.

Covercraft Universal Truck SUV and Wagon Covers Ready-Fit Covers covers actually be called "semi-custom" since they are designed to provide a very good fit using incremental sizing and a hatchback silhouette. While any of Covercraft's 80,000 + custom-patterned covers can be purchased by special order, you'll find most Ready-Fit covers in stock. Covercraft semi-custom car covers use Block-It Series non-woven protection fabrics made by Kimberly-Clark in the U.S.A. For extended outdoor use Covercrafts covers will provide all-weather protection. The 380 Series fabric cover offers the perfect level of protection to fit your needs and budget.
Kimberly-Clark pioneered the technology used to construct non-woven fabrics. Polypropylene (and other) fibers are extruded and then bonded together using special laminates and/or heat and pressure. Depending on the application, the fibers may be bi-component (using two different performance synthetics) and/or multi-layered for dust, ding or moisture control.
For the fabrics K-C developed for car cover use, one of the key requirements is the fabric's ability to stand up to UV degradation. You are buying a cover to protect BOTH the exterior and interior of the vehicle and, if the cover won't hold up to the daily onslaught of UV rays, you've wasted money and can end up damaging the car you wanted to protect.
K-C's development scientists constantly monitor fabric performance of their own, and competitors', fabrics using "real-life" fence tests where fabrics are affixed to panels and left outside 24/7 in the Florida sun. This is done in addition to weatherometer testing conducted in controlled lab conditions. Both fabric tests rely on control samples for comparing results and performance evaluations, which are usually reviewed on a quarterly basis.
One of the most expensive components in non-woven fabric construction is the use of UV inhibitors. Kimberly-Clark fabrics are U.S. made with added inhibitors to assure optimum fabric performance. Depending on fabric construction, K-C covers carry a warranty to the original purchaser of up to 3 years. For a cover to last, the fabric has to be built right from the start!
Quality Components = Quality Covers...don't take the risk with inferior grades of fabrics when it comes to protecting your vehicle.
