Popular among car owners for many years now, neoprene seat covers are still a top choice for those seeking a durable and versatile seat cover option. If you’re considering neoprene for your vehicle, have a read of some of the many benefits of neoprene seat covers below.
Is neoprene good for seat covers?
Neoprene seat covers can be used on cars, SUVs, trucks, buses and more. Known for its durability and versatility, neoprene is a synthetic rubber fabric that is used to make many products. You may be familiar with it being part of wetsuits because it is great at protecting against water. Neoprene's protective value and reliability makes it a perfect all-round seat cover for comfort and safety. Its durability makes it a perfect choice for everyone from families to tradespeople or professional drivers because of its strength, washability and affordability.
Are neoprene seat covers durable?
One huge benefit of neoprene seat covers is durability. Made from a strong synthetic material, neoprene seat covers look better for longer because they can withstand the heat and light of the sun, they are also easy to wipe clean when dirty. Neoprene seat covers are strong enough to take on the daily wear and tear car seats are faced with. If cleaning of stubborn stains is required, they can also be easily washed with laundry detergent and water.
How neoprene seat covers keep you cool
Neoprene seat covers deflect heat and help in keeping the internal temperature of your car cool. They don't absorb as much heat as other materials and because of their water resistance, they don't store moisture. Some materials cause your car to heat up substantially in warmer temperatures. This can cause your body to sweat and stick to the chair, resulting in an uncomfortable and sometimes painful ride on a hot summer's day. Neoprene seat covers prevent this. The cooling effect also makes your air conditioning have to work less hard because you don't feel as hot. It has the reverse effect in winter because they can work hand-in-hand with seat warmers if your car has them.
Do heated seats work with neoprene?
If covers can be used on your heated seats, neoprene is a good option to use because it's a heavy-duty fabric resistant to heat damage. It can withstand temperatures associated with seat warmers because they don't get hot enough to cause any issues with the seat covers. Neoprene works well as a neutral fabric that isn't hot to touch when placed over a seat warmer but manages to create a cozy feel once you're settled into the seat.
