Custom-Fit Covers Fabric Info

Custom-Fit Covers Fabric Info
Custom-Fit Covers are offered in a wide selection of fabrics, to allow you to select the one that will meet your vehicle's protection needs and budget.



Different fabrics offer different levels of protection performance. Our range of fabrics is based on experience in manufacturing covers since 1965. All Covercraft fabrics are "breathable" to allow good air circulation under the cover. That's important because it assures that any moisture or condensation under the cover can easily evaporate, and it also reduces heat build-up on hot days. Remember, rain water (not acid rain) won't hurt a vehicle's finish; it's UV rays and pollutants in the air that cause the most damage to the exterior and interior finish. See the fabrics listed below to help identify which fabric is best suited for the protection needs you require.

200 Series / Multibond® Fabric
Kimberly-Clark developed BLOCK-IT 200 Series fabric to be a mid-price leader in quality and performance. It uses 3-layer polypropylene construction for moisture and dust resistance, and the fibers are treated for extra UV resistance. If you are looking for an inexpensive cover for indoor storage and limited outdoor use, this U.S. made fabric offers good, basic protection and is an excellent value.

380 Series Fabric
380 Series fabric is Kimberly-Clark's newest film barrier fabric, offering great performance at a competitive price. At 3.2 ounces per square yard it's about half the weight of the popular high-performance NOAH® fabric. The three-layer construction uses inner and outer layers of spunbond, sandwiching a middle layer protective film barrier. The film barrier has microscopic holes, smaller than droplets of water (and most dust particles) to stop moisture, but still allow any moisture vapor or heat to easily escape from under the cover.

Reflec'tect
Reflec'tect is a woven fabric that has a UV-reflective silver-colored finish that helps keep the vehicle cooler. The fabric is water resistant and also repels dust and dirt to help keep the vehicle clean. Compact for easy trunk storage and easy to handle for installation and removal, this lightweight cover provides good all season protection.

Evolution/Technalon®
Technalon® covers, made with Kimberly-Clark's Evolution® 4-layer non-woven polypropylene fabric, provide maximum protection in all weather conditions. Often imitated, but never equaled, U.S. made Evolution fabric covers are used by millions of satisfied car enthusiasts around the world.

Recent improvements include a stronger outer layer and softer inner layer. The inner layer is constructed with similar processes used for our Dustop™ interior storage covers - gentle protection for fine paint finishes (inner layer is now light gray). Through extensive testing in Florida K-C has confirmed Evolution has the highest UPF rating of all their non-woven fabrics. This is important because UV rays are what damage both the exterior AND interior of any vehicle. Block the UV rays - protect the vehicle!

Dustop
Made in the U.S., by Kimberly-Clark, this flannel-like fabric is a 4-layer non-woven composite, ultrasonically laminated to provide a high degree of dust protection during inside storage, while remaining breathable and soft against any fine paint finish. Maximum dust protection, yet it's lighter and easier to handle, compared to traditional woven fabrics.

Noah
NOAH barrier fabric actually stops water, yet it "breathes" to allow any trapped moisture, seam seepage or condensation to easily evaporate. The unique construction process (patent pending) results in a cover with maximum all-weather protection...highly water resistant, dust resistant, UV resistant and breathable to make sure moisture and/or heat don't stay under the cover. Made in the U.S. by Kimberly-Clark, the fabric weighs only 4.75 oz./sq. yd., so it's easy to handle and fold.

Ultratect
Ultra'tect was developed from the need for a cover that would retain it's color and strength during extended outdoor exposure, while providing a high degree of water resistance and UV protection at a reasonable price. Ultra'tect is made from solution-dyed WeatherMax® SL fabric.

WeatherShield HP
The worldwide patented EPIC by Nextec® finish helps shed moisture and stops dust, dirt and tree sap from reaching your vehicles finish. The fabric "breathes" to allow moisture, condensation and heat to easily escape from under the cover. The encapsulation technology goes INSIDE the fabric, around the fibers, resulting in a silky smooth finish that glides over fine paint finishes. Nextec engineers have now married solution-dyed fibers to the EPIC finish in an environmentally friendly process that features much lower CO2 emissions! Also called "dope-dyeing" the high-performance polyamide fibers require no dyeing after weaving, saving water and energy consumption and slashing wastewater, a byproduct of traditional surface dye processing. Using solution-dyed fibers can save as much as 1,000 gallons of water for every 1,000 yards of fabric produced! Color permanency is the key to our new WeatherShield®HP - the color is extruded INSIDE the fibers for maximum fade resistance, NOT a surface dye coating. The result is a cover that's provides all-weather protection, machine washable, fade resistant AND environmentally friendly!

WeatherShield HD
WeatherShield® now has a "big brother"..WeatherShield HD
Developed primarily for intense sun environments and long-term storage, WeatherShield HD not only provides UV opacity, it repels water, blocks dust, tree sap and bird droppings, and is still breathable to allow moisture and heat to escape from under the cover.
The base material for WeatherShield HD is woven by Glen Raven Mills (makers of Sunbrella®), using solution dyed UV resistant polyester fibers (see insert below to learn why solution dyed fabrics are better - courtesy of Glen Raven Mills). Not only is the fabric solution dyed, the 300 denier construction is 40% heavier than regular WeatherShield and the heavier denier thread provides double the tear and tensile strength.

Covercraft has over 80,000 listings in their computerized pattern library and add new patterns every week. If the pattern is not currently listed, or if the pattern is special, we'll provide a dimension sheet which is easy to complete. The measurements you provide will be input in a CAD system that creates the custom pattern for your application. We can accommodate hood scoops, roll bars, grille guards, winches, you name it, we'll custom make the pattern to fit any vehicle. Remember, if it has wheels, Covercraft can cover it!

Custom-Fit covers are made to order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
