WeatherShield®, uses the patented EPIC by Nextec® encapsulation process, originally developed for high performance outdoor sports-wear. Their proprietary technology uses precision and controlled placement of special polymers to make ordinary fabrics extraordinary! This encapsulation process places an ultra-thin film around the fabric fibers and precisely places a durable, breathable barrier within the woven polyester fabric to complete the high performance finish process. Unlike traditional coatings and laminations that just protect one side of the fabric, Nextec uses up to 40 computerized process controls to place protective polymers inside the fabric, to shed water, dust, bird droppings, tree sap and industrial pollutants.
The result is a fabric that provides maximum protection, but isn't bulky and hard to store. Using Nextec encapsulation technology Covercraft has created the ultimate car cover...and named it WeatherShield because no other fabric has every shielded your car or truck from the elements like this one!
photo gives you an idea how the encapsulation coats the fibers and fills the
voids between the threads with a breathable barrier to assure moisture, dust
and pollutants are kept away from the vehicles finish. The base, high-strength,
polyester fabric is naturally UV resistant, but Covercraft has added UV inhibitors to the
polymers to help slow-down the degradation that occurs naturally on anything
exposed to sun for an extended period of time.
