How to Protect Fabric From Sun Damage With Silicone
Fabric protectants are common; they're found on most upholstered furniture, outdoor fabrics and even children's pajamas. There are different types of protectants, some of which are intended for water repellency, others for protection against combustion, and still others for protection against oil and dust accumulation and ultraviolet radiation. Silicone-based protectants are primarily focused toward water repellency, but some silicone protectants also incorporate strong UV protectants. These are particularly for use on fabrics used outdoors.
