- EcoPULTM is made in the USA. 73% polyester 27% polyurethane. 153 gsm.
You may see laminated cotton woven or knit fabrics available on the market we do not recommend cotton PUL, as it is difficult to achieve a truly waterproof finished product.
Benefits of PUL Fabric by EcoPULTM
The most important characteristic of EcoPULTM is that it forms a waterproof barrier, while still being breathable. In this context, breathable does not mean that you can hold the fabric over your face and breathe through it. It means that the fabric releases heat and water vapor. This keeps the wearer comfortable. Our PUL fabric has a soft hand, making it quiet never stiff or crackly.
EcoPULTM fabric is washable in hot water in commercial or home laundry. It resists abrasion, is fire retardant, and antimicrobial.
