This is the high water-resistance version of our 1.6 oz Silpoly line of coated materials in Woodland Camo print. This fabric is coated with a silicone/PU layer on one side, then a multi-pass PU coating on the other to create a highly waterproof/non-breathable fabric.
Same silpoly benefits of lower water absorptionand increased UV resistance, but in a much higher waterproof rating. The PU4000 also has less bias stretch, making it easier to sew.
In general, 1.6 oz Silpoly offers higher strength, lower bias stretch, and better puncture/abrasion resistance than our lightweight 1.1 oz Silpoly and ultralight Membrane Silpoly. Best used when you prefer a more robust material over the absolute lightest weight.
Great for projects such as tent/shelter floors, ground sheets, tarps, ponchos, gear sacks, pack covers, or any application where a robust/durable waterproof/windproof fabric is needed.
*Note - shiny side is PU4000 and dull is sil/PU. If seam sealing this fabric, you will need a sealant intended for PU coated materials (e.g. Seam Grip).
