Are floating covers resistant to UV radiation?

Floating covers are designed to be resistant to UV radiation because prolonged exposure to sunlight can degrade and weaken the materials over time. Floating covers are made UV-resistant through the use of specialized materials and additives during the manufacturing process. High-quality geotextile liners, often composed of polyethylene or other UV-resistant polymers, are selected for their inherent ability to withstand prolonged exposure to sunlight. Additionally, manufacturers may incorporate UV stabilizers and inhibitors into the material formulation.

These additives act as protective agents, absorbing or blocking the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation, thereby preventing degradation, discoloration, and loss of structural integrity. The combination of UV-resistant materials and additives ensures that floating covers maintain their effectiveness over an extended period in outdoor environments.
