Custom Patterned WeatherShield HD car covers shed moisture immediately and all you have to do is shake the cover and it will dry in minutes. WeatherShield HD car covers fold to about 1/2 the size of non-woven covers and "breathe" to let moisture and heat escape from under the material. COVERCRAFT's WeatherShield HD car covers feature Nextec, a finish that uses a patented encapsulation process to place an ultra-thin film around the fabric fibers. This durable barrier is built into the fabric and between the fiber bundles, safeguarding your vehicles interior and finish.
The Heavy-Duty Version for Maximum Sun and Weather Protection
Developed primarily for intense sun environments and long-term storage, WeatherShield® HD uses heavier denier thread for maximum UV opacity. Approximately 40% heavier than WeatherShield® HP, the 300 denier fiber construction results in almost double the tear and tensile strength, finished with the same great EPIC® by Nextec encapsulation process.
Who should use WeatherShield® HD? People who live in intense sun climates and along the coast will benefit most from this extreme-performance fabric, as well as RV owners seeking the best cover for long-term storage.
WeatherShield® HD is not as compact as WeatherShield® HP and the heavier fibers aren't as silky-smooth but, for maximum performance in harsh environments, you can't beat WeatherShield® HD.
WeatherShield® HD uses a superior fade resistant solution-dye production process that SAVES 1,000 gallons of water for every 1,000 yards of fabric produced
WeatherShield now has a "big brother".....WeatherShield HD
Developed primarily for intense sun environments and long-term storage, WeatherShield HD not only provides UV opacity, it repels water, blocks dust, tree sap and bird droppings, and is still breathable to allow moisture and heat to escape from under the cover.
The base material for WeatherShield HD is woven by Glen Raven Mills (makers of Sunbrella), using solution dyed UV resistant polyester fibers (see insert below to learn why solution dyed fabrics are better - courtesy of Glen Raven Mills). Not only is the fabric solution dyed, the 300 denier construction is 40% heavier than regular WeatherShield and the heavier denier thread provides double the tear and tensile strength.
This superior base fabric is then finished with the patented EPIC by Nextec encapsulation process...the same high performance finish used on our popular WeatherShield fabric. Using up to 40 computer controlled proprietary processes Nextec forces specially formulated polymers inside the fabric to bond to each individual thread and fill the valleys between the woven fibers (see close-up at left). These special polymers have amazing elasticity to block moisture and dirt, while still maintaining the breathability of the fabric. You can see why Nextec's slogan is "Outsmart the Outdoors".
Who needs WeatherShield HD? People who live in intense sun climates and along the coast will benefit most from this new fabric, plus RV owners looking for the best cover for long-term storage. It's not as compact as regular WeatherShield, and the heavier denier fibers aren't as silky-smooth, but for maximum performance in the harshest environments you can't beat WeatherShield HD.
