Acrylic fabric is best described as fabric woven or knitted with acrylic yarns. As a synthetic fabric, acrylic is not something that comes from the natural world. Instead, acrylic fabric produced artificially through a synthetic polymer known as acrylonitrile. Acrylonitrile is derived from petroleum or coal-based chemicals and synthesized to for acrylic resin pellets. This resin is formed into pellets and extruded through a shower like device known as a spinneret. The spinneret makes continuous filament acrylic fibers that are then spun into yarn. The yarn can then be woven or knitted into textiles for various uses.
This fabric is ideally suited for retractable awnings and stationary fabric canopies providing comfort in the heat of the summer. Acrylic fibers are saturated with highly UV stable pigments. These fabrics are breathable creating a comfortable space.
Application: Sun umbrellas, sunshade tents, outdoor sofa pillows, beach seats, camping tents, car interior awnings, flags, yacht tarpaulins, and household goods and other outdoor decorative fabrics.
