Fabric Technologies Inc. (SCFTI) has made its WeatherMax 80 fabric – made with solution-dyed
SaturaMax yarn and suitable for heavy-duty outdoor applications such as patio furniture, umbrellas
and awnings, among others – available in six new colors including cobalt, graphite, sand, scarlet,
silver and taupe.
“This is a demand-driven decision for us,” said John Pierce, product manager, WeatherMax. “
Our customers have been requesting these colors so they can use WeatherMax in more applications.”
WeatherMax features a HydroMax mildew-proof finish that won’t crack in cold weather. The
fabric is lightweight, and has double the tear-resistance and strength of acrylics, among other
features, according to SCFTI. It also carries a five-year, fade-resistance guarantee.
