What is PVC Fabric?
Woven polyester with PolyVinylChloride.
Generally using a polyester woven base cloth, PVC fabrics are coated with various polymers then a special material to give the material colour, strength and waterproof properties. There are many different top surfaces applied to PVC fabrics ranging from basic acrylic coatings to highly specialised self cleaning finishes like PVDF which prolong the life of the fabric. PVC fabrics are described by their finished weight in grams per square meter. Many different thickness fabrics with different life expectancies are available; generally thicker fabrics have extended life spans. Coloured fabrics are available but usually only in the lighter acrylic coated variants.
