Silverguard Plus™ is a great all-weather fabric used by Coverking for our custom car covers. Silverguard Plus™ is a special woven polyester fabric made with 300 denier yarn (twice as thick as similar fabrics) with a thick, silver reflective urethane coating on the outside. The polyester material is non-scratch and the urethane outer coating should withstand extreme sun for years. After this base material is produced, we take the material to another facility to adhere a special soft lining to the inside. This lining adds softness, and also some bulk.
Coverking developed Silverguard Plus™ to address the middle-market with special consideration for sunny climates, and for people who need a soft inner liner. Silverguard Plus is also water resistant and extra soft to the vehicle's paint, so it is a great all-round cover. Keep in mind the extra inner lining makes Silverguard Plus almost twice as bulky as the regular Silverguard.
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 3 year repair or replace warranty on custom Silverguard Plus™ covers.
CARE and CLEANING
Silverguard Plus™ can be easily cleaned by washing while on a vehicle. Use common carwash detergent, and air dry.
