For your safety, always wear protective gear when handling boat care products.a
Dirt, including soap scum and moisture are key ingredients for mold, the others being still air, warmth and darkness or shade which are conveniently provided by boat covers. The removal of one or more of these ingredients will prohibit the formation and growth of mold and their associated stains and health hazards.
Boat covers can be safely and thoroughly cleaned with free rinsing FABRI-KLEAN fabric cleaner and waterproofed with CANVAS SHIELD water proof spray. FABRI-KLEAN will not leave a soap residue. CANVAS SHIELD will not support mold growth and because of its deep penetrating power, it encapsulates and protects the underside of the threads in the fabric as well as the exterior side, giving it better protection.
Mold spores are ever present in the air. When they land on a suitable host they rapidly grow and multiply. The visible mold that you see and even wipe away is the bloom, like the flower of a dandelion. You can remove it but unless you remove the root or inhibit it from growing, it will continue to grow and the root will burrow deeper and become stronger and more tenacious. The bloom releases spores into the surrounding air to propagate more mold and the root continues to devour the material under the surface. It’s this degradation under the surface that gives the indelible mold stains visible on vinyl seats, inflatable boats and synthetic fabric boat tops and cushions. Removal of the mold stains usually causes even more damage to the substrate.
Regular cleaning with free rinsing FABRI-KLEAN and annual re-application of CANVAS SHIELD plus proper ventilation under the boat cover can easily double or even triple the life of your boat canvas.
No, it’s not a new form of algae or a strange bug. PFOA is the acronym for Perflurooctanoic Acid, C8HF15O2, which is a chemical used in the production of PTFE, Teflon™, for water proofing canvas and other outdoor fabrics. As the PTFE material breaks down, it releases PFOA into the atmosphere. Some products are intentionally made with PFOA.
It was discovered that PFOA has been found in the bloodstream of over 98% of American men, women and children. No one is exactly sure how it made its way into the bloodstream of such a large number of people, but the EPA is now pressuring industry to eliminate its use.
The study has shown that PFOA was still present in the human body approximately four years after exposure and that levels were only reduced by approximately one half. PFOA has been implicated in causing cancer of the pancreas, testicles, liver and mammary glands. It’s also been linked to miscarriages, thyroid problems, low birth weights and weakened immune systems.
Aurora Marine’s latest discovery CANVAS SHIELD™ fabric guard is a new Waterproofing coating for marine and other outdoor fabrics and clothing that does not use PTFE, Teflon or Silicone. The secret is that it utilizes Nanoized Polymers and is completely PFOA free. It’s also a much greener alternative; it’s nontoxic, nonflammable when dry, VOC compliant and safe for most natural and synthetic fabrics.
CANVAS SHIELD fabric guard penetrates deep into the fabric to coat and protect each thread, rather than just residing on the surface, so it continues to protect against water migration when the surface coating is worn away from washing, abrasion and environmental degradation. Even though water no longer beads on the surface, your marine canvas still remains waterproof if protected with CANVAS SHIELD fabric guard. The fabric maintains its natural breathability, flexibility and color, even after repeated application. Re-application is recommended annually or when the fabric finally loses its waterproofing ability.
In addition to waterproofing, it also resists stains, mold, UV and color fading.
For best results, the fabric must be clean, dry and free of surfactant residue from soap or detergents. Aurora has also developed FABRI-KLEAN™ fabric cleaner, specifically for pre-cleaning fabrics prior to treatment with CANVAS SHIELD fabric guard and for regular maintenance. FABRI-KLEAN is a free rinsing, concentrated, low sudsing and environment friendly, water based and water activated cleaner with deep penetrating power to clean the threads, not just the surface. It’s effective at removing oil based as well as organic soil such as airborne pollutants, bird droppings, dirt, mold, even grass stains and fish blood. Wet the surface first and spray a bit of the environment friendly concentrate onto the surface, agitate it with a brush and rinse it clean. It’s free rinsing so there is no residue to affect adhesion. When dry, spray on two coats of CANVAS SHIELD fabric guard and allow to cure for 24 hours. Enjoy your waterproof canvas.
Maintenance is easy. Just rinse dirt off with a garden hose. If tough stains, such as bird droppings, remain, we recommend washing with FABRI-KLEAN. When washed with free rinsing FABRI-KLEAN, CANVAS SHIELD can withstand multiple washing before re-application is required.
