Each Bubble Cover is normally made from Silver Acrylic Sunbrella or Silver Solution-Dyed Polyester and is lined 100% with a soft and smooth microfiber. Bruce's Custom Covers developed this material combination especially for aircraft protection. The outer material is medium weight and treated for water resistance, UV resistance and anti-static buildup. The inner lining is a very soft and smooth microfiber to prevent scratching. The materials are extremely UV reflective, and tests show that the cabin interior temperature can be reduced to near-ambient temperature on even the hottest of days. It is water, ice and snow repellent, yet breathable enough to allow moisture to escape from between the cover and the aircraft surface. Our materials do not contain hydrocarbon compounds that can harm Plexiglas windshields and acrylic finishes. Other colors are available. Please contact us for availability and price. We also have an ultra lightweight material available for fitted hangar dust covers.... read more
