Do you know which fabrics are used for umbrellas? What are the characteristics?

There are three main types of fabrics for umbrellas, and the order of cost from low to high is: polyester, PG cloth, nylon, and transparent plastic.
The characteristics of polyester cloth are: the color is brighter. After rubbing the umbrella fabric with your hands, the creases are obvious and it is not easy to restore. When the fabric is rubbed, it will feel resistance, and there will be a rustling sound when rubbing. Coating a layer of silver glue on the polyester is what we usually call a silver glue umbrella. The silver glue cloth has a better anti-ultraviolet function, but after a long time of use, the silver glue is easy to fall off in the folded place. Coating a layer of silver powder on the polyester is what we usually call a pearl cloth umbrella. The color of the pearl cloth is relatively bright, which is very popular among women, but the anti-ultraviolet effect of the sun is not ideal.


PG cloth
PG cloth is also called impact cloth, and high-density impact cloth is a new type of cloth. PG has the following characteristics: the color is matte, dark. The cloth feels like cotton cloth and has good light blocking properties. The cost of PG cloth is relatively high, but the anti-ultraviolet function, quality stability, and color grade are all ideal. It is a relatively good umbrella cloth. Generally, PG cloth is only used in high-end products. in the umbrella.

Nylon cloth is also a high-grade variety of umbrella fabrics. This kind of rain cloth is bright in color and feels like silk in the hand. Rub it back and forth with your hands, and the resistance is very small. But this kind of cloth has a weakness. It is greatly affected by air humidity, and the umbrella cloth shrinks more seriously, sometimes even affecting the normal opening and closing of the umbrella surface. So in our commonly used umbrella fabrics, there are not so many.
