Description

Crystal Clear 30 Gauge Vinyl Material Clear is a press polished window material with a clear tint designed for marine and automotive applications. Crystal Clear is made using the same quality vinyl and processing as Strataglass (without the coating) and has good optical clarity with no haziness, dimples, distortion, or fish eyes. Crystal Clear can be sewn just like fabric and is a great window material for marine windows, enclosures, dodgers, sail windows, and awnings.

Crystal Clear 30 Gauge Vinyl Window Material Specifications:

Sheet Size:* 54 in.x 111 in. (usable area: 51 in. x 108 in.)
Thickness: .030 inches (1.00mm, 30 gauge)
Color: Clear

Crystal Clear Installation

Baste window material in place with seamstick over the fabric. Sew the window in place using a #18 or #20 needle and V-69 or V-92 thread. After sewing, use scissors to trim away the fabric from the window. Bind the raw edges with binding for a more finished appearance.

Crystal Clear Care and Cleaning

Wash regularly with mild soap and water, rinsing away salt and debris first. To prolong the life of Crystal Clear, use 303 Aerospace Protectant on a regular basis to help restore plasticizer protection and add UV protection. Do not leave window curtains rolled up over a prolonged period of time. Roll down and snap into place nightly to avoid fold distortion or cloudiness from trapped water.


Why do vinyl windows turn cloudy and become brittle?

The key to keeping vinyl looking and performing like new is maintaining the integrity of the topcoat and protecting against UV damage. Vinyls contain plasticizers, chemicals that make them soft and pliable, that over time work their way to the surface and evaporate, wash away, or rub off. The top coat (PVF or PVDF) is applied to block plasticizers from migrating out of the material.

Top coats, such as 303 Aerospace Protectant, greatly increase the life of vinyl windows, especially those left up permanently. Its effectiveness is reduced on applications that are taken on and off or folded regularly.

*The manufacturer lists the size of the sheet as 54" x 111", however we have found that the sheet size varies up to 3 inches in length and 1 inch in width.
