What is UV Resistant Vinyl?
UV rays are a form of radiation produced by the sun that can cause premature aging. These rays can be extremely harmful to your skin and other items that might have continued sun exposure, such as fabric. There are two types of rays, Ultraviolet A, associated with skin aging, and Ultraviolet B, which causes the skin to burn. While both can be harmful to skin, they can damage fabric and cause fading if left untreated. If you need UV resistant vinyl treated to prevent premature breakdown or fading, Value Vinyls has a selection of fabrics for you. Here are just a few of our treated fabric lines: Advantage, Aquafloat, Impact, Soluna, Sureseal, Visiontex, and more!
Our Treatment Process
The Value Vinyls team works with our partners to ensure we develop and treat each fabric to meet stringent standards. We thoroughly test all of our materials in the Value Vinyls V2 Lab to ensure they meet all specifications. Our specifications include UV resistance, abrasion, adhesion, tongue tear, tensile strength, puncture resistance, and color consistency. We can also treat fabrics to be anti-mildew and anti-bacterial. Thoroughly researching and testing products in our laboratory sets us apart from other suppliers.
Our extensive testing ensures that each of our 80+ fabrics will be long-lasting and perform as intended, even under harsh weather and environmental stressors.
