Suitable for marine applications

RECACRIL® Marine fabrics are designed for use in boats (hoods, Biminis, flybridges,etc).

Like RECACRIL® fabrics, RECACRIL® Marine fabrics are made from solution dyed acrylic fibers, which gives them an exceptional color resistance to high salinity environments such as marine.

RECACRIL® Marine fabrics have an outer surface finish according to the enhanced Infinity Process, for a greater waterproofing.

The enhanced Infinity Process provides to RECACRIL® Marine fabrics a softer and more ductile touch than the standard fabrics, facilitating their preparation to better adapt to the complex shapes of the nautical structures.

All RECASENS fabrics have warranty period from the date of installation.
The warranty covers the abnormal deterioration, decay and loss of color of the fabrics subjected to normal atmospheric conditions and when correct maintenance has been systematically carried out. Within the period, RECASENS will replace free of charge the defective yardage or pay its cost. The warranty covers only the value of the fabric and specifically excludes any other elements of the awning (hardware, mechanisms, etc.), as well as the costs of producing and installing the awning.
The warranty does not cover any deterioration due to abuse, negligence, vandalism, burns of any kind, fires and natural disasters.

Maintenance for RECACRIL® Marine Canvases

The high-tech finish Infinity Process provides Recacril® RECASENS fabrics with long-lasting protection against mold and mildew excellent water and oil repellency making Recacril® fabrics protect you from both sun and water for many years.

However the accumulation of dust air pollution particles organic materials fatty substances and dirt in general can damage this protection shortening the life of Recacril® fabrics which makes their removal necessary.

The most effective method to keep Recacril® fabrics in good condition is to clean the fabric once a month with a hose with little pressure thus preventing the accumulation and penetration of dirt on the canvas.

It is very important that after cleaning with water the canvas is allowed to dry completely before closing the awning.

If under any circumstance the wet awning had to be closed it should be opened again as soon as possible and allowed to dry completely. In times of heavy rain it is advisable to keep the awnings closed.

If this washing is carried out periodically with water in most environments it will only be necessary to do a more in depth cleaning process every 2 or 3 years.

Normal cleaning: 
  1. Brush the dirt with a very soft brush. NEVER brush with hard brushes since they damage the protective treatment of the fabric.
  2. Spray the awning fabric with clean water. If a hose is used, avoid using high pressure.
  3. Prepare a solution of neutral soap in warm water (no more than 40° C) and apply it on the fabric.
  4. Rub with a soft brush allowing the solution to penetrate the fabric.
  5. Rinse with plenty of clean water to remove all soap residue.
  6. Let dry in the open air and do not roll up the awning until the fabric is completely dry.

If the stains persist, it will be necessary to perform a more intense cleaning following the following procedure:

Intensive cleaning:
  1. Brush the dirt with a very soft brush. NEVER brush with hard brushes since they damage the fabric finish.
  2. Prepare a solution with 10% household bleach, 20% neutral soap (solvent free) and 70% water.
  3. Apply the solution on the fabric, allowing it to act for a maximum of 15-20 minutes.
  4. Rinse with plenty of clean water to remove all soapy residue, since if residues of bleach remain in the fabric, with the combined action of the sun, they could end up damaging it.
  5. Let dry in the open air and do not roll up the awning until the fabric is completely dry.
  6. Repeat the above process if necessary.
To protect the environment, be sure to collect dirty water when using bleach, as it can be harmful to people, animals and plants.

Consumer information

RECASENS fabrics, Technical Textiles, are fabrics easy to maintain. The fabric surface is non-porous plastic, making it difficult for dirt to adhere but easy to remove.

Dirt accumulation can end up damaging the PVC canvas finish, causing accelerated deterioration. It is recommended to periodically clean the canvas to prevent rot and mold growth.

For effective cleaning, sponge out using soapy water and then rinse with clean water. Let dry the fabric positioned in a perfect tension.

We recommend using neutral (non-ionic) and a low percentage of alcohol detergents. Avoid using highly acidic or highly alkaline detergents and do not use solvents or bleaching agents such as bleach or hydrogen peroxide.

To avoid damaging the canvas finish, do not use chemicals or abrasive brushes or cleaning systems using water jets at high pressure.
