What is the coating made of on the REI Flash Air 1 & 2 tents?

Does anyone know what material coating is on the fly of these tents? Silicone, Poly Urethane ??? 

Thanks in advance.

@Mulestomper The outer finish is a DWR and the inner coating is Polyurethane.

I hope that helps! I love those tents!

@Mulestomper Thanks for the question!

@REI-DaveM is correct that the material coating on the new REI Flash Air 1 & 2 tents is Polyurethane and a DWR coating. We checked with our Co-op Brands team and wanted to add that there is a flame retardant treatment on the fly of these tents as well.

Thanks!
