Top Gun:
 

Top Gun is a durable, high count woven polyester coated on both sides with a specially formulated polymeric coating that will not harden, crack, or peel after outdoor exposure or in extreme temperatures. The coating adds UV, mildew, and water resistance but can breathe so it will not trap excess moisture. Use for dodgers, biminis, tops, full canvas enclosures, boat covers, anchor riding sails, awnings, junk rig sails, equipment covers and bags. 11 oz. per square yard. 5 year manufacturer's warranty.

Breathe Ability (2): Slightly less breathable than routinely suggested for full enclosures without providing other means for ventilation.

Waterproof (4): The tight weave and polymeric coating together make this fabric almost waterproof.

Abrasion Resistance (5): The polymeric coating will not harden, crack, or peel after outdoor exposure or when subjected to temperatures below 0 degrees F. An excellent choice for all types of protective covers and especially for those that are subjected to a good deal of abrasion.

UV Resistance (3): Polyester is a UV resistant material but less so than acrylic fabrics like Sunbrella and vinyl coated polyester fabrics like Stamoid.

Colorfastness (2): The color will not stay true as long as materials that are solution-dyed (like Sunbrella and Sur Last). Colors are also not as vibrant or consistent as Sunbrella or SurLast outdoor fabrics.

Clean Ability (3): Easy to clean, but the polymeric (acrylic) coating on both sides make dislodging dirt slightly more difficult than cleaning non-coated woven fabrics. Pre-soak Top Gun with a mixture of water, chlorine bleach, and non-detergent soap, brush, and thoroughly rinse for the best results.
