Vinyl-coated Waterproof breathable outdoor fabrics polyester mesh is one of the most commonly used materials in the world. Available in different weights and strengths, it’s used for everything from tote bags to patio sling chairs to banners, truck tarps and beyond.Most woven vinyl mesh fabric starts with a polyester yarn as the core, which is then extruded with vinyl also known as PVC. Each yarn is individually extruded and bonded to the polyester core yarn. The PVC coating means that no moisture can reach the polyester fiber, making it extremely durable and prevents wear from freezing and thawing in cold weather.
The strength and dimensional stability of vinyl-coated polyester mesh fabric is determined by a number of factors including the original thickness of the polyester yarn also known as the denier, the strength technically referred to as the “tenacity” of the yarns, and how densely the yarns are woven together in laymen’s terms, how many yarns per inch. The thicker the yarn and the more yarns per inch, the stronger the final fabric.Many of Phifer’s PVC-coated mesh fabrics use 100% polyester yarns as a base, but our Olefin Blends are a little different. As their name suggests, this fabric is woven with a mix of PVC-coated polyester and soft olefin fibers to add extra softness without compromising on strength.
