What is sunforger canvas?
Sunforger canvas is a tight weave cotton army duck finished with a patented chemistry(sunforger) that helps the canvas withstand the harshest elements. Start with a tight weave army duck canvas that is woven with the best yarns. Our 10.4 army duck canvas is woven with ring spun yarns(these are longer staple fibers) which makes the fabric extremely strong while keeping the weight down. The canvas is then pre-washed to get rid of all the natural starches and contaminants. The fabric is then run through the dyeing machine where it picks up the non-toxic chemical. The chemical is waxed based, and once on the fabric it goes through an oven to cure it. The sunforger canvas is then taken to inspection to ensure all flaws are removed prior to packaging. Sunforger canvas is then tested for the following:
- Tensile and tear strength
- Water repellency
- Leech testing-this is done only on fireproof sunforger canvas. The canvas is soaked in water for 72 hours and re-tested for flame resistance
- Mildew resistance
- PH levels
Once all these tests are passed the sunforger canvas gets it’s stamp of approval to be sold to the consumer. The weight of the fabric(10.4 oz) is perfect to make wall tents for hunters. Most hunters need a lightweight shelter that they can load onto their horses.
