Why 100% Solution Dyed Polyester Is the Best T-Top Cover Fabric
These are custom fit T-Top boat covers. They use a lot of fabric and that fabric matters. Taylor Made has chosen three of the best fabrics on the market for this particular application.
LIGHTWEIGHT T-TOP BOAT COVER FABRIC
Despite the glossy magazine ads touting solution-dyed acrylic canvas, it simply isn’t the best T-Top boat cover fabric. It’s heavy. It doesn’t breathe. And, over time, the acrylic starts to both wear down and stretch. This creates pools of water that eventually leak through acrylic fabric boat covers. That’s why Taylor Made T-Top covers – as well as our quick release webbing straps – are constructed from polyester, not acrylic, material.
LONG-LASTING STRENGTH AND COLOR RETENTION
All three of the marine grade T-Top boat cover fabrics we offer are 100% solution-dyed polyester canvas custom made in the USA. All are the optimal weight for these very large covers, and all are created with the highest standards for durability and longevity – giving you top strength and color retention for years and years to come.
FABRIC THAT STAYS STRONG IN ALL CLIMATES
These tough, all-weather fabrics hold up to any climate with incredible tear-strength and abrasion resistance. They offer you the highest water repellency while staying breathable – an important factor that makes them mildew resistant. And, you won’t have to worry about damaging the finish on your boat, as these canvases are non-abrasive to gel-coating and other marine finishes.
T-TOP BOAT COVER FABRIC OPTIONS
So, what’s the difference between the three high-quality fabrics we offer? Mostly, it’s fabric weight and price. The least expensive option (Ultima) is a little lighter (7 oz.) and comes with a shorter warranty (3 years). The mid-priced option (Weathermax) is a bit heavier (8 oz.) and extends the warranty to 5 years. And, our Elite fabric option is a very sturdy 9-ounces and carries a 5-year warranty.
