Patented shrinkable fabric

3 – 10 Mil Transhield Cover Material

In 1994, the first Transhield cover was made to protect automobiles from environmental damage. Since that time, we’ve listened to customer feedback. We’ve expanded our material offerings to thicker and thinner materials that address a wide variety of products and industries, all based on Transhield’s original patented formula. The outer layer is a water resistant film that not only shrinks, but also stretches, while the inner layer is a soft, microfiber-like polyester nonwoven. The material is used to make custom covers for a wide range of products to protect against environmental damage during transportation and storage.

Quick Facts
  • Water resistant – outer layer resists moisture, rain, snow and sleet. Transhield products have proven effective in all climates.
  • Anti-Condensating – prevents condensation under the cover
  • Protects from environmental damage including UV rays, dust, rocks, etc.
  • Optional VCI (vapor corrosion inhibitor) additive to reduce corrosion
  • Shrinkable up to 20% – creates an aerodynamic fit
