Encapsulation technology blocks out water and dust better than your average cover.
Kimberly Clark, the maker of Covercraft
, took car cover technology to the next level with the Weathershield
. Car covers are no longer just for dust protection; this cover blocks out everything that threatens your finish with patented encapsulation technology. Think of it as a soft body of armor for your vehicle.
, uses the patented EPIC by Nextec encapsulation process, originally developed for high performance outdoor sportswear. Their proprietary technology uses precision and controlled placement of special polymers to make ordinary fabrics extraordinary! This encapsulation process places an ultra-thin film around the fabric fibers and precisely places a durable, breathable barrier within the woven polyester fabric to complete the high performance finish process.
Unlike traditional coatings and laminations that just protect one side of the fabric, Nextec uses up to 40 computerized process controls to place protective polymers inside the fabric
, to shed water, dust, bird droppings, tree sap and industrial pollutants.
The result is a fabric that provides maximum protection, but isn't bulky and hard to store. Using Nextec encapsulation technology, Covercraft
has created the ultimate car cover, called WeatherShield
because no other fabric has every shielded your car or truck from the elements like this one!
This magnified photo gives you an idea how the encapsulation coats the fibers and fills the voids between the threads with a breathable barrier to assure moisture, dust and pollutants are kept away from the vehicles finish. The base, high-strength, polyester fabric is naturally UV resistant, but UV inhibitors have been added to the polymers
to help slow-down the degradation that occurs naturally on anything exposed to sun for an extended period of time.
Despite all its strength and durability, the Weathershield
is light and easy to handle. When not in use, it folds into a compact size so you can store it anywhere. Clean your cover in the washer and dryer when it gets dirty.
Easy storage and care paired with outstanding protection equals the Weathershield
cover has a 4 year warranty to go along with its durable construction and excellent protective properties.
For any weather conditions, inside storage, outside storage, long term or short term, the Weathershield
is the car cover that does it all.

Weatherproof and Waterproof - Fabric sheds water as soon as it hits the cover.
Superior Dry Time - Because the fabric sheds moisture it has an absorption factor of only 2%, compared with up to 40% for standard woven and non-woven fabrics. That means, if the cover has been sitting out in the rain you only need to shake it and the residue moisture will easily dry, in the trunk or on the car.
Breathable - Allows any heat or condensation under the cover to easily escape.
UV Resistant - Special additives prevent UV degradation and protect the vehicles finish and interior.
Dust-proof - Patented fiber encapsulation process prevents dust from filtering through the fabric.
Scratch-less - Polymers provide a silky smooth finish to the fabric and provide superior paint protection. Nextec fabric has been tested at 1,000 cycles on abrasion wheels without scratching (surface must be clean and waxed).
Durable - The encapsulation process is not affected by heat or cold and the process won't degrade over the life of the fabric.
Easy Care - Unlike non-woven fabrics you can clean most car-size WeatherShield covers in your HOME washer and dryer.
Packs Small & Light - All this protection in a lightweight package that packs into 1/4 to 1/2 the volume of multi-layer, non-woven fabrics.
Double stitched overlapped seams
Neoprene elastic hems – the elastic in the front and rear hems helps hold the cover in place
Reinforced, non-scratch grommets – use a tie-down rope (supplied) or a vinyl coated cable and lock (optional)
Antenna openings – All Covercraft covers are made to fit vehicles with retractable antennas. If your vehicle does not have a retractable or removable antenna, you will need to cut a small opening in the fabric. Call us at 1-800-215-4460 and we will include an antenna grommet with your cover at no extra charge.
Mirror pockets – Patterns for vehicles manufactured before 1965 may not include mirror pockets. In some cases, the cover will fit over the mirrors without pockets. If you need mirror pockets, they can be included but they will not be sewn into the cover. Call us for details. This applies to some pre-1965 models only.
Cleaning Instructions - For general cleaning, spray off the cover with the water hose while it is on the vehicle. Allow it to air dry. To spot clean stains, spray the spot with Simple Green All Purpose Cleaner. Agitate the spot lightly with a sponge and rinse.
You can wash the WeatherShield cover in most home washing machines. Use powder laundry detergent and wash on normal or permanent press. Do not use bleach or hot water to wash your car cover. Dry the cover on permanent press or lay it over your vehicle to air dry.
The WeatherShield cover is available in 8 colors:
For added security, add the Car Cover Lock & Cable to your purchase. The cable is vinyl-coated so as to thread through the grommets without scratching.
