I've heard some synthetics will break down eventually from exposure to the sun. Is this the case with the Ultimate Collection?
No, but many products made from recycled material will eventually break down with exposure from the sun because of the harmful ultra violet (UV) rays. This line is impervious to UV rays and will not break down; It comes with a lifetime warranty on material parts.
