Covercraft Industries ultimate all-weather cover fabric, the WeatherShield car cover
has now been improved. The WeatherShield HP car cover is the next generation
of this exclusive high-performance fabric, and technological advances have made
it almost totally fade resistant. This Eco-friendly material is finished with the
worldwide patented EPIC by Nextec encapsulation technology to help shed moisture
and harmful UV rays. It’s rated BEST for severe weather outdoor storage. This exclusive
Weathershield HP cover finish protects against dirt, tree sap, bird droppings and can
assist against minor paint damage. WeatherShield HP covers breathe to allow moisture
and condensation to escape from under the cover, preventing surface damage and interior
mildew. WeatherShield HP car covers are available in eight solid colors, or a combination
of two colors, and all car covers are custom made from Covercrafts library of over 80,000
domestic and import car, truck and SUV patterns. WeatherShield HP car covers fold into
a small compact size for easy trunk storage, and can be cleaned in most home washer/dryers!
Custom Weathershield HP car covers can be made from your measurements and specifications.
WeatherShield's Key Features and Benefits
Dramatic Rain Dispersion - Fabric sheds water as soon as it hits the cover.
Superior Dry Time - Because the fabric sheds moisture, just shake the cover and it dries in minutes (HD fabric is heavier and
requires additional drying time).
Breathable - Allows any heat, moisture or condensation under the cover to easily escape.
UV Resistant - Special additives to the encapsulation formula reduce fabric UV degradation.
Superior Paint Finish Protection - Silicone polymers used in the encapsulation formula help create a silky-smooth finish that's even
less abrasive than flannel (HD uses heavier denier thread which is not as smooth).
Packs Small - Cover packs into roughly 1/3 the volume of multi-layer fabric covers (HD covers are bulkier).
Easy Care - Wash and dry at home... most mid-size covers will fit in home washers and dryers - and, unlike non-woven materials, they
can be thrown in a dryer.
Durable Fade-Resistant Base Fabrics - Premium solution-dye fibers mean the covers resist fading and hold their color longer.
Over 20 years ago Covercraft partnered with Nextec Applications, Inc., a
technology leader that pioneered a new process for creating performance
fabrics used primarily in the outdoor clothing industry. By using precise
polymer placement and special chemistries, they were able to place
protective finishes inside the fabric, encapsulating the actual woven fibers
to transform ordinary fabric into extra-ordinary! The encapsulation
processes, methods and equipment are protected by more than 51 patents
issued or pending in the U.S. and internationally.
Working with Nextec's extensive R&D resources Covercraft created what is
considered the "perfect" fabric for outdoor or indoor vehicle protection.
WeatherShield® HP (for "high performance") is manufactured with solution-dye
fibers which makes fabrics more fade resistant and is currently one of the
most ecologically responsible ways to produce fabric. Solution-dye isn't
really a dye process, the color pigments are mixed into the compound that is
extruded as thread. This puts the color all the way through each fiber (fade
resistant) and saves 1,000 gallons of water for every 1,000 yards of fabric
produced since we don’t have to surface dye the fabric!
To construct this amazing fabric, prefinishing chemistries are applied to
the solution-dye polyester fabric to prep it for the encapsulation process.
Nextec proprietary equipment then applies a viscous (gooey) patented mixture
of silicon-based polymers onto the fabric. Energy (heat and pressure) is
applied to the polymers, working them inside the fabric and wrapping the
individual fade resistant fibers. All but the smallest spaces are filled and
the micro holes that remain allow the fabric to "breathe" so any moisture or
heat under the cover can easily escape. Specially designed ovens cure the
polymers to a solid state and the fabric is ready to make into covers.
No microfibers, no laminates, no surface coatings... EPIC® by Nextec's
encapsulation process delivers all weather protection, compact packability,
easy care, and a soft-to-paint touch without sacrificing breathability.
WeatherShield is not waterproof, but if kept clean it will shed most water
and help prevent dust, dirt, bird droppings and tree sap from reaching the
vehicle surface. The breathable properties of the fabric assure that any
heat, moisture or condensation under the cover can easily escape.
Available in 8 Colors:

The Ultimate all-weather Weathershield car cover fabric just got better!
How can you make a fabric that's been selected as an OE choice for luxury,
high-performance and specialty vehicles and motorcycles better?
patented EPIC by Nextec finish helps shed moisture and stops dust, dirt and tree
sap from reaching your vehicles finish. The fabric "breathes" to
allow moisture, condensation and heat to easily escape from under the cover.
The encapsulation technology goes INSIDE the fabric, around the fibers, resulting
in a silky smooth finish that glides over fine paint finishes.
have now married solution-dyed fibers to the EPIC finish in an environmentally friendly
process that features much lower CO2 emissions! Also called "dope-dyeing"
the high-performance polyamide fibers require no dyeing after weaving, saving water
and energy consumption and slashing wastewater, a byproduct of traditional surface
dye processing. Using solution-dyed fibers can save as much as 1,000 gallons
of water for every 1,000 yards of fabric produced!
Color permanency is the
key to our new WeatherShield HP - the color is extruded INSIDE the fibers for maximum
fade resistance, NOT a surface dye coating. The result is a cover that's
provides all-weather protection, machine washable, fade resistant AND environmentally
friendly! WeatherShield HP Car Covers are available in eight (8) colors and
you can order your cover in single or two color combinations.
The best vehicle protection available
now comes in colors! Covercraft's custom patterned WeatherShield car and truck
covers are now available in custom colors as well. You can combine Black, Red, Yellow,
Bright Blue, Green, Light Blue, Taupe or Gray into the color scheme of your choice.
You can have a striking solid color or select two different color panels, one color
for the sides and a different color for the top, in whatever combination you want.
These colorful WeatherShield car covers are custom made for your vehicle and are
a perfect fit. WeatherShield car covers weigh only 5-ounces per square yard, packs
into 1/3 the space, and a mid-sized cover or smaller can be washed and dried at
home. Weather Shield car covers provide immediate water dispersion, dries in minutes,
is dust proof and UV resistant, and breathes to allow moisture to escape while keeping
your vehicle dry and clean. Weather Shield car covers patented immersion process
uses heat and pressure to make ordinary fabric extraordinary! Custom Patterned WeatherShield
custom car covers shed moisture immediately and all you have to do is shake the
cover and it will dry in minutes. WeatherShield custom 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 custom car
features 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.
WeatherShield Car Covers Weather, both good and bad, has an effect
on your vehicle. The potent summer sun’s heat and UV rays, and winters cold and
damp, can damage both the interior and exterior of your vehicle. WeatherShield Car
Covers is Covercraft’s answer to both seasons, plus it repels water, blocks dust,
tree sap and bird droppings, while allowing heat and moisture to escape. And, WeatherShield
car covers are heavier thread construction provide double the tear and tensile strength
of most vehicle covers, and can assist against minor paint damage! Plus it folds
into a compact size for easy trunk storage and can be cleaned in most home washer/dryers.
WeatherShield Car Covers eco-friendly solution-dye is fade resistant with pigment
added during fiber production. These fibers are then spun into yarn, resulting in
permeated color throughout the fabric, creating a consistent, lasting color. The
world-wide patented Nextec encapsulation process forces specially formulated polymers
inside the fabric to bond to each thread, and fill the valleys in between the woven
fibers. This creates a fabric ideal for maximum performance and protection in harsh
environments, and the covers glide over fine paint finishes for easy installation
and removal. It’s also perfect for long-term outdoor storage. It’s available in
eight solid colors or a combination of any two colors. Find out more about WeatherShield
