Behind every Budge protective product is a ton of science, a fair amount of trial and error and even a little bit of luck. Consider the tightrope walked in balancing two properties essential to almost every protective cover: water resistance and breathability. The fabrication must repel water, yet be porous enough to permit the escape of water vapor molecules smaller than oxygen and nitrogen molecules. Then add in the challenges of engineering the same cover to incorporate a myriad of other protective qualities that may include UV resistance, acid rain resistance, puncture resistance, scratch resistance, salt resistance, tensile strength and colorfastness. At Budge, we thrive on these challenges and excel at surmounting obstacles that stump less experienced companies.
Our track record for success in bringing superiorly engineered and technology advanced protective materials to the marketplace is no less than 70 years' strong. We will continue this tradition by collaborating with some of the best minds in the business, including leading national and international materials experts (such as DuPont and Polymer Group, Inc), relationships with independent engineers (with laboratory privileges at such institutions as Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and small specialty fabric shops.
That's why private industry and branches of government frequently turn to Budge to solve their most perplexing protective needs. Whether it's a car manufacturer seeking a way to cover freshly painted vehicles without trapping lingering paint gasses, the U.S. Military needing to protect the F/A-22 Raptor's sensitive canopy during storage, transport and maintenance, or the U.S. Postal Service wanting to shield mail sorting trays from paper dust, Budge has been there and done that with exceptional results.
Have earned Budge Industries many product patents, including our new heat-proof/fire-proof motorcycle cover allowing bikers to cover up before cooling down the engine – the perfect combination of protection and convenience!
Among other eco-friendly initiatives, we now vacuum pack many of our products and use recyclable shrink wrap instead of cardboard shipping containers.
