WeatherMax® Now Features Eco-friendly C6-based HydroMax Finish
"Our technical staff and suppliers have been working on making our fabric even more environmentally friendly for over a year to make sure our performance level did not decline," said John Pierce, WeatherMax product manager. "We are very pleased we were able to improve the finish for both WeatherMax 80 and WeatherMax LT, while reducing environmental impact."
WeatherMax 80 weighs 8 ounces per square yard (oz/yd2), and WeatherMax LT weighs 6.5 oz/yd2. Safety Components also makes WeatherMax in an 8.5-oz/yd2 flame-resistant variety, WeatherMax FR.
According to Safety Components, WeatherMax is completely recyclable and highly breathable, and is twice as strong and six times as tear- and abrasion-resistant as acrylic fabrics. The company guarantees the fabric's color retention for five years minimum.
