Material Information - Coverguard™

Coverguard™ is a budget fabric used by Coverking for our entry level universal car covers.  This material is made in China.  The technical name of this material is Spunbond Polyester.  The specification Coverking uses for Coverguard™ is:

Coverking uses spunbond polyester.  Most competitors use spunbond polypropylene.  Polyropylene is inherently less UV resistant and is more likely to degrade with exposure to UV rays emitted from the sun.  Coverking also adds additional UV retardant, which ensures even longer stability in the sun.  Finally, Coverking insists on 85 gram per square meter - far thicker than the usual 70 gram used by most competitors.

Coverking uses wax coated thread in overlapped, double stitched seams.  The wax coating expands in the pierced hole created during the stitching process, to help cover the hole.  Once again, some competitors  take the cheaper route by using an ultra-sonic welding of the material instead of sewing.  This process is far cheaper, because it melts the fabric layers together.  It also doesn't use any thread.  Unfortunately, the area melted together becomes very hard and examples of scratching the vehicle surface are not uncommon.

Coverking offers a 1 year repair or replace warranty on universal Coverguard™ covers. 

Coverguard™ can be easily cleaned by washing while on a vehicle.  Use common carwash detergent, and air dry.
