What is 190T Nylon fabric?

Is it waterproof as well as UV resistant like beach umbrella canopy material? Or is it coated to make it such? Are there superior fabrics or taffeta's to 190T Nylon for waterproof and UV resistance?

    It's a type of nylon that's often (but not always) coated for waterproofing. Not waterproof on its own (true of most fabrics.) And most nylons are not UV resistant... look for types that have been treated for UV resistance.

    What are you trying to make? What functions does the fabric need to perform, for how long, and in what environment?

    Not having the answers to those questions, I'm going to send you to the Beacon Fabric website, http://www.beaconfabric.com , for some reading on the virtues and foibles of various common outdoor fabrics. The owners ran a marine upholstery shop in Florida for many years, so they're familiar with the sorts of fabrics you seem to be looking for.
