CFL - Flynight is a blackout fabric which, thanks to the black acrylic coating on the back side, produces a total barrier to light.
The degree of light absorption, on the other hand, is mainly produced by the black colour and it's not comparable to that of plushy fabrics or velvet.
The front side has such a tight weft that it is barely noticeable and to the touch one can guess its impermeability to water.
It acoustically contributes to the improvement of reverberation, but to a lesser extent than other blackout fabrics.
However, it has some peculiarities that, if needed, make it irreplaceable: it is the lightest of blackout fabrics, it is water repellent and it has excellent tear resistance.
Thanks to the coating it does not fray and it can be used with raw edges.
It must be sewed with precautions that are needed to prevent light from seeping through the seams.
It is mainly used for masking applications, such as perimeter backdrops, skirts for stages, curtains to totally obscure the external light, etc..
