Sunbrella is a type of popular fabric that is used in our Sunbrella patio umbrellas. Sunbrella is 100% solution-dyed acrylic fabric. Sunbrella patio umbrellas withstand sun, wind and rain while remaining beautiful for years. The secret to the lasting color is found in the solution-dying process which locks colors into the acrylic fibers, so they can't wash out or fade. Sunbrella fabric is not waterproof; it is water repellant. This means that during the finishing process a water repellant finish is applied to the fabric of the Sunbrella patio umbrella. Normal wear and usage will reduce the effectiveness of this finish as will cleaning the fabric. Sunbrella fabrics used in our sunbrella patio umbrellas, if kept clean, will not mildew. An inherent characteristic of acrylic fiber is that it will not support the growth of mildew, as a natural fiber will. Sunbrella fabrics have been tested and proven to provide up to 98% UV protection from the harmful effects of the sun depending on depth of color. White patio umbrellas and lighter colored fabrics provide less protection than darker fabrics which have more depth of color. This protective factor is inherent to the product and will not be reduced by usage and/or fabric exposure to the sun. Sunbrella Patio Umbrellas carry a Three-year warranty. Sunbrella Patio Umbrellas are Made in the USA.
