When shopping for a new, comfortable, and breathable tent that will keep you cool this summer, you might be tempted to look for a PU coated fabric. But, there are several types of fabrics that fall under that umbrella term and all can offer great comfort if used properly. And, there are several companies that make tents specifically designed for use with particular fabrics in mind. So, how do you decide what type of tent to purchase?
First, consider the two major categories of materials: PVC coated fabrics and FR PU Coated fabrics. If you're looking for a material that will allow your body to breathe. Think about camping trips, where airflow is an important factor, and you'll understand the importance of being able to "breathe." When shopping for pvc coated fabrics, go for those with zippers or openings on both sides of the material that allows air flow.
And, the next consideration in purchasing the right canopy is whether you want a fabric that's durable and will stand up against a lot of use. Most of the popular polyester products are more durable and long lasting than their acrylic or nylon water resistant cousins, but there are some exceptions. You should know, however, that almost all polyester products will tear apart quickly if they get wet.
Think about durability as it pertains to cloth-coated fabrics. You might find that they cost more initially but you can pay up front for longer lasting durability. Some of the best fabric protection comes from coated nylon materials and they tend to be very good at repelling water. The biggest problem with these types of materials is getting them wet. If they are on the surface of the water, they can be washed and dried fairly easily. However, they will quickly form a film on whatever they come in contact with once they have come in contact with water.
With regard to longevity, polyester and nylon coated fabrics are about the same. The big difference between the two tends to be in the manufacturing process. As mentioned earlier, cotton cloth-coated fabrics take much longer to develop than their textile counterparts do. It takes more manufacturing steps to produce cotton cloth-coated fabrics, too. As such, they tend to last much longer than their textile counterparts.
There are three other major differences between the three fabrics discussed above and what would be considered a plus point for purchasing one over the other. For starters, the biggest difference is the price. As discussed above, cotton, polyester, and nylon are coated fabric are more expensive than the textile alternatives. However, there is still a big difference between them. If you are interested in buying your next apparel, then you may want to consider spending a little extra for a top that can stand up to a lot of wear and tear.
Also, when it comes to the way that these products stand up to wear and tear, it appears that one of the main differences between all of the three is that one will simply fall apart faster than the others. If you are in the market for a new formal shirt, you may want to spend some extra money and get a top that is going to stay looking nice for a longer period of time. On the plus point side, all of these fabrics will hold up to a lot of wear and tear and keep looking sharp.
All in all, the three different fabrics discussed above fall into one of three categories. They are all highly desirable, but there are significant differences between them that can be significant when it comes to purchasing your next apparel. When it comes to which one you should purchase, your options are really up to you. Take some time and make sure that you do some online research to learn more about each fabric before you decide. You will certainly be happy that you took the time to learn more about all of these great fabrics.
