The Benefits of a Nylon American Flag

Think all American flags are the same? While they may feature the same design consisting of 50 stars and 13 stripes, their quality may vary. There are high-quality American flags, and there are low-quality American flags. Those made of nylon typically fall under the former category. Nylon American flags can last a long time — all while providing a brilliant display of American patriotism. By choosing a nylon American flag, you can take advantage of the following benefits.

Superior Strength

Nylon American flags offer a superior level of strength. They are stronger and more durable than most other types of American flags.  Nylon, of course, is a synthetic material. It’s made of carbon-based chemicals using a combination of heat and pressure. When compared to organic fabrics, such as cotton and linen, nylon is stronger.  Nylon American flags retain this same superior level of strength. You can fly a nylon flag outside of your home or business for many years without it degrading.

Mold and Mildew Resistance

You don’t have to worry about mold and mildew developing on a nylon American flag.  As a synthetic material, nylon is naturally resistant to mold and mildew. Mold and mildew are classified as fungi. And like all fungi, they feast on organic materials. Nylon isn’t an organic material; it’s a synthetic material, so it discourages the growth of mold and mildew.

UV Treated

The nylon American flags sold here at Star Spangled Flags are ultraviolet (UV) treated. They feature an invisible layer over the surface that’s designed to reflect UV light. When other types of American flags are exposed to UV light, they tend to fade. UV light will degrade American flags while causing them to fade. UV-treated nylon American flags, though, are protected from fading. You can display them in direct sunlight without fear of them fading.

In addition to being UV treated, our nylon American flags are lock stitched. They aren’t chain stitched like other types of flags. With their lock-stitched construction, our nylon American flags are protected from unraveling and fraying.

Dries Quickly

Another benefit of choosing a nylon American flag is its fast-drying properties. Unless you display it under a covered area, such as a patio, your American flag is bound to get wet.  If it’s made of nylon, however, it will quickly dry. Nylon is a fast-drying material. After it stops raining, nylon American flags will quickly dry out.
