Car Covers And The Summer Sun

Car covers are made to protect your car all year around but at this time of the year it is even more important then ever to have your car covered. The sun can cause more damage to your car than you may think. Your car’s paint is under constant attack by the sun’s UV rays, industrial fallout, acid rain. Left unprotected your car’s paint will suffer irreversible damage. Not only is the paint in danger your interior is under attack from the heat the sun generates. On a mild 73°F day, the temperature inside a car can reach 120°F in 30 minutes. On a 90°F day, the interior can reach 160°F in minutes. This will cause your dash and other materials to dry out and crack, also any plastics may melt, like your CD’S or DVD’s. Having a car cover can protect your vehicle from this and a lot more.
There are many types of car covers on the market today but one cover will help you protect your vehicle better then any other cover form UV rays. This cover is the Tyvek cover made from a white material that not only reflects the sun but is also water resistant. This space-age, lightweight Dupont Tyvek is easy to handle and store. It’s long been used by contractors to protect homes during construction. HAZMAT suits are also made from Tyvek to protect people from the most harmful conditions. It is fast drying, mold and mildew resistant and will help protect a vehicle from acid rain, tree sap, dust and other harmful pollutants.
There are many types of protection to protect your interior like window shades that will help keep the sun off your interior, these are good but usually only cover the front windshield and that means that the sun still can damage other parts of your interior, this also allows the temperatures to clime in your interior damaging all your plastic items. With a car cover you will be protecting the hole interior from the sun’s rays also helping to keep temperatures down protecting any items in your car and making it nicer when you need to get in and go somewhere. The overall protection that a car cover provides is well worth the price. It will help you keep the value of your car and you will spend less time washing your exterior and conditioning your interior from the sun’s drying and heat damage.
The one thing I can think of that may be a drawback to this cover is the fact that this cover is only one layer thick and is vary light weight. In windy conditions it may be hard to keep it on your car or other vehicle, yes this cover does come with two tie down grommets in the middle of the cover to help keep it in place with a cable lock or bungee cords to help secure it.
So if you live were the wind is strong and blowing all the time you might want to buy a three or four layer cover to help keep it in place. These covers are also UV protected and ether water resistant or waterproof, they also come with tie down grommets to secure it from the wind and the extra weight of these covers will keep them in place. Having a cover on your vehicles will be a benefit to you and your vehicles.
