    Video Transcript

    • When it comes to fabricating boat covers, especially covers for larger vessels such as houseboats and pontoon boats, you need a fabric that's lightweight, easy to sew, and water repellent with some breathability. Hydrofend performs on all three levels. Developed by Trivantage and exclusively available to Trivantage customers, Hydrofend is a solution-dyed polyester with the proprietary high performance back coating to protect gel-coated boat surfaces from abrasion, which is especially important when trailering a boat. At eight ounces per square yard and a tear strength of almost 40 pounds warp and fill, it makes handling large boat covers an easier task for your customers.
    • There are also fabrication benefits including reduced fraying and puckering during sewing. Hydrofend was created to protect boats and it performs well on both water repellency spray and hydrostatic suitor tests. It keeps most water out while allowing water vapor to escape. It's UV fade resistant and bleach cleanable, and resists mold and mildew growth. Hydrofend comes with a five-year limited warranty backed by Trivantage and is made in the United States. In addition to covers, this fabric is ideal for boat tops, enclosures, and furniture covers with its matte woven fade resistant top. Hydrofend provides long-lasting beauty while its coated back makes it a top performer. Contact your Trivantage representative to learn more about Hydrofend today.
