SeaMark Waterproof Marine Fabric
SeaMark is an ideal combination of Sunbrella, the premier woven acrylic fabric, and Haartz textured marine-grade vinyl. The result is a rich, colorfast, waterproof fabric that stands up to the harsh conditions of any marine environment. Including salt, moisture, sun, win, and temperature extremes.
When it has to be durable and cost-effective, it has to be our traditional boat toppings. Fabrics feature traditional diamond grain, shallow grain, and Haartz' new, innovative linen fabric grain texture for easy cleaning. Manufactured with Haartz' exclusive water-repelled backing, our marine coated fabrics are exceptionally mildew-and UV-resistant.
Available in both solids and tweeds, this 60" fabric has superior seam and tensile strength.
SeaMark is ideal for boat tops and covers, entrance canopies, upholstery, tonneau covers and equipment covers. Vinyl back-coated, 16 oz. per square yard. SeaMark has five year manufacturer's warranty.

Cleaning & Care
SeaMark Cleaning Instructions
Although the fabric does not promote mildew growth by itself, mildew may develop on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed. This is especially true in warm, humid, dark environments. A program of keeping the fabric clean through regular washings, BEFORE it gets dirty, will enhance the life and beauty of the acrylic and make successive cleaning easier.
Hand washing in shade or partial shade, not direct sunlight, is best. DO NOT USE DETERGENT. Bird and tree droppings, as well as other loose particle soils, should be removed immediately. Vacuum with a brush attachment and rinse thoroughly with water to remove loose particle soils. This will also prevent the soils from being redeposited during the cleaning process. Once the fabric has been rinsed thoroughly, spray Bimini Topp Marine Cleaner evenly over the entire surface while still wet. Allow the cleaner to soak for 10 to 20 minutes and then scrub lightly with a soft nylon brush or terry cloth rag. Rinse thoroughly, preferably until no remaining soap foam is observed. Additional cleanings may be required. It is best to determine the need for additional cleanings after the fabric has dried completely.
Washing with soap (ie. Ivory) and warm water is a safe alternative to Bimini Topp Marine Cleaner, but not as effective.
For more stubborn cases, mix a solution of no more than 1/2 cup (4 oz.) bleach and 1/4 cup (2 oz.) Bimini Topp Marine Cleaner per gallon of water, soak for approximately 20 minutes and scrub lightly as indicated above. (Excessive soaking with the bleach solution can deteriorate seam threads). Rinse thoroughly to prevent streaking on painted and chrome surfaces. Several cleanings may be necessary.
Once dry, cleaning must be followed be re-water repelling with Bimini Topp Marine Protectant. Failure to apply will result in rapid resoiling of the unprotected fabric.
