Surlast 3871-0000 Walnut 60" is an all weather 100% solution-dyed polyester that offers great protection for anything outdoors! Glen Raven Surlast was originally developed for the marine industry to endure the stress put on boat covers, but it is quickly becoming the standard for automotive and motorcycle covers and accessories as well. Surlast fabric is a tough, non-abrasive polyester fabric with excellent weather and abrasion resistance and good breathability.
Surlast fabric is solution-dyed meaning that the color, UV inhibitors, and stabilizers are actually a part of the fiber and cannot be separated. The result is a strong, long lasting fiber with rich color that will not fade, wash out, or transfer to your gel coat when trailering. A urethane coating is added to one side to provide additional stability, increase water and mildew resistance, and minimize shrinking or stretching. The coating also keeps this outdoor fabric from raveling (no hotknife required!) for easy construction.
Surlast fabric is designed for outdoor use. Use Surlast Walnut for boat covers, PWC covers, automotive and motorcycle covers and accessories, storage covers, sail bags, and packs. There is a right and wrong side to this outdoor fabric, meaning that the uncoated side of the Surlast should be exposed to the sun.

Surlast Cleaning and Care:
Surlast is easy to clean and can be washed or brushed off and rinsed to keep looking like new! For normal care and cleaning add 2 oz of mild soap (Wool-lite, Dreft, Ivory soap) to 1 gallon of water (less than 100°F). Clean with soft bristle brush. Rinse thoroughly with cold water and air dry. For stubborn stains, add maximum of 1 cup of bleach to 1 gallon of water. Spray on lightly to the fabric face (non-coated side). Do not soak fabric. Prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals can damage the coating (coated side) of the fabric. Rinse immediately. Do not leave on for more than 2 minutes. After cleaning with bleach, use 303 Fabric Guard to restore water repellency.
