Auto is made from solution dyed and UV stabilized polyester and solution dyed acrylic.
These yarns are extremely resistant to fading due to the colouration by high light fast pigments introduced to the polymer whilst still liquid, and the colour is evenly distributed through the cross section of the yarn.
Auto is not affected by mild acids and alkalis, so will NOT be weakened by perspiration. Auto has a resistance to abrasion of > 80 000 rubs (SABS spec requires 50 000).
Auto can be washed at 40°C, and warm ironed.
Auto is protected from dirt using a fluorocarbon system from Rudolf chemicals in Germany.
