Material Description:

Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor:
VCI layer which emits ions that bond with water molecules preventing them from bonding with metal. This stops electron transfers thereby preventing corrosion. The ions do not bond with metal or optics nor do they affect electronics in any way. VCI weave is inert and lasts for over five years. Reduces formation of corrosion by up to 95%.

The waterproof membrane cannot be clogged by microscopic sand, dirt, and dust fragments. This prevents diminished breathability over time and eliminates the need to regularly clean the inside of the cover.

Robust materials perform exceptionally well in tensile strength, seam strength, tensile elongation, tear resistance, puncture, and abrasion testing. The materials are resistant to degradation from grease, oils, lubricants, and cleaning agents. Cover life expectancy is over five years for ground applications with some exceeding eight years.

Water, rain, and precipitation will not penetrate the cover. Passes the water column at over 13, making the cover impervious to even the most severe driving rains.

UV Resistant:
Blocks 99.9% of UVA and UVB rays helping to preserve paint, coatings, wiring, grommets, and other sensitive components. Also keeps temperatures under the cover within twelve percent of the ambient temperature.

Mold & Mildew Resistant:
The materials scored zero on Fungal resistance tests, meaning they are not conducive to mold, mildew, and fungus growth. This protects operators from exposure to potentially dangerous substances.

Easy to Maintain:
The cover can be washed using soap and water and isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. The materials will not absorb water ensuring ease of use for operators.

1.Hydrophobic wicking layer pulls moisture from surface of equipment.
2.Non-porous membrane eliminates intrusion of corrosion causing micro Sulfur Dioxide and Chloride molecules, while preventing clogging to maintain high breathability rates throughout the life of the cover.
3.Vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) releases ion that prevents oxygen molecules from bonding with equipment, reducing corrosion up to 90%.
4.Durable outer material is waterproof, breathable, and 100% UV resistant-allows moisture to evaporate outward, thereby preventing the greenhouse effect.
