But new cars aren’t the only cars needing protection. Manufacturers have been making traditional car covers out of nonwoven fabrics for many years.
Why Nonwovens Make Terrific Automotive covers
Nonwovens are a perfect fit for car covers, custom or otherwise. Here’s why:
- Durability. Nonwoven covers often have multiple layers, usually with a soft lining, a dust barrier and then a tough outer layer.
- Weather protection. Because of their strength and layers, they typically provide good protection against weather, specifically if the car is repeatedly exposed to snow, ice, wind, hail and mud. In addition, the cover can be effective in keeping the interior cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
- Treated fabric. Nonwoven fabrics can be treated for UV protection to make interiors and tires more resistant to ultraviolet damage.
