    I dont know the answer, but I do know that my S58 ones are original and after 14 years they are tired but by no means dead - so Sunbrella does last.

    I have been using these people for my info on fabrics.

    I have to say that I have changed to a fire retardant acrylic for my tonneau 2 years ago and it looks good as new.
    The previous by vynil lasting less than 5 years was an expensive mistake.
