  • What is a coated fabric?
    Under a specialized process, a polyester fabric (made at Carolina Performance Fabrics) is impregnated with liquid PVC. The result is a material with high resistance to abrasion, wear and tear.
  • Coated canvas vs. laminated canvas
    A coated canvas offers greater durability, resistance during the life cycle of the automotive packaging project and easy cleaning, therefore, lower repair and maintenance costs. The characteristics of a laminated tarpaulin make it prone to detachment of PVC, easy damage from abrasion and tearing. Our coated fabrics have been developed with the end user of automotive packaging in mind.
  • Is a Top Coat fabric better than a Tyvek or a non woven fabric?
    Each material has a different purpose and requires particular care. Although they can coexist and be compatible in a packaging project, it is important to identify the conditions and use to which it will be subjected so as not to fall into bad practices or incorrect specification, which can generate scrap, damage, losses and extraordinary expenses.
  • How to clean coated fabrics
    It is recommended to blow or vacuum; if necessary, wipe with a damp cloth and dry. Do not use dryers or hot air. DO NOT USE SOLVENTS.
  • How to clean Tyvek
    Blow or vacuum is the best option. It can be cleaned with a microfiber cloth or similar with cold water and mild soap, rinse and dry. Do not use hot air dryers. DO NOT USE SOLVENTS to try to remove stains.
  • How to clean Dubetina/Oropal/Polipro
    Blow or vacuum is the best option. It can be cleaned with a microfiber cloth or similar and a little water so as not to affect its performance. Do not use hot air dryers. Do not use soaps or solvents as they alter the composition and appearance of the fibers.
