Marine Outlook: High Water Resistance with Hydrofend™

Hydrofend™, a solution-dyed polyester designed to balance high water resistance with breathability, is now available from Trivantage.

“We aimed for a fabric that lets little water in and water vapor out,” said Dan Fouratt, Director of Business Development. “Hydrofend achieves this balance.”

Applications for Hydrofend include boat covers, Bimini tops, boat enclosures, storage covers, and furniture covers. To ensure superior performance, the fabric was designed with a tear strength starting at almost 40 pounds warp and fill. The product also comes with a five-year limited warranty.

“We are a strong believer in coated fabrics,” Fouratt said. “Through experience, we found the coating on the back of the product protects the surface it covers from abrasions. Coated fabric does not fray in the assembly process, making our customers’ jobs easier.”

Hydrofend is in stock and ready to ship for your next project. Your local sales representative is available to answer any additional question. You can also visit or contact us at 1-800-786-1876.
