Polyester Umbrellas have canopies made from premium grade polyester fabric in six to eight ounce weights of polyester canvas. The fabric is usually treated with 3M Scotchgard protection for stain resistance and is also waterproof. Polyester also gives UV protection and is lighter in weight than either olefin or acrylic outdoor fabrics.
Polyester holds its color very well and is fade resistant. It is a durable choice for umbrella canopy fabric and is known for its long lasting qualities. Polyester is a more durable choice than plastic, cotton or vinyl and comes in a variety of vivid, rich colors in today's most popular shades.
