Branded Umbrellas’ Canopy Material
What is the point of having a ultra strong frame, if you don’t have the canopy material to back it up. Both of our Über and LoGU premium branded umbrellas ranges only utilise polyester pongee for their canopies. Our upgraded canopies use a premium polyester pongee which has a higher waterproof grade than the standard nylon canopy. Plus this fabric is twice as strong helping the umbrella’s rigidity and strength.
Polyester for Printed Umbrellas:
Polyester is a group of synthetic compounds that can be woven or knitted into fabric.
Polyester is formed through a chemical process involving a chain reaction. The reaction occurs between mono ethylene glycol, purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) to create bis terephthalate. bis terephthalate is heated, it turns into PET, which is highly malleable and can combine into long, thin and unbroken fibres.
Polyester evolved in the UK in the early 1940s. It had already become a popular textile around the world. Today, polyester is used to manufacture a variety of products. These include textiles, belts, furniture, insulation, padding, tarps and glossy finishes for hardwoods.
