Solution-dyed acrylic fabrics provide longer lasting color fastness, ensuring colors stay vibrant longer than traditional fabrics, while providing high resistance to water and dirt.
Solution-Dyed Acrylic Fabrics
Outdura exclusively uses solution-dyed premium acrylic for its casual furniture fabrics. Solution-dyed means that the pigment is already added to the yarn during the manufacturing process. Acrylic yarn is resistant to UV without having to add any additional substances, making your fabrics last for many years.
Solution-dyed acrylic yarns have color pigments in the fiber, not just on the surface, giving the fabrics superior color fastness, making the colors shine for a longer period of time.

Solution-Dyed Acrylic Fabrics (SDA)


The quality of the fiber used to make a fabric is crucial in terms of fading resistance. Our fabrics are made from 100% solution-dyed branded acrylic.

This means that the color pigments go all the way into the fiber (similar to the carrot shown on the right), not just on the surface of the fiber (like you see with cucumber). This gives the fabrics a superior color fastness and makes the colors shine for a longer period of time.
