Description

This is a clear vinyl window material ideal for marine and light industrial applications. This 20 Gauge, lightweight Plastipane is double polished for good optical clarity. It also makes good patterning material, as well as light windows for sails, dodgers, boat side curtains, automobile seat covers, tents and any application where minimizing weight is more important than optical clarity or durability. Sews easily and rolls up compactly.

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. Finish the raw edges with a binding for a more finished appearance.

Care and Cleaning:

Wash regularly with mild soap and water. To prolong the life of Plastipane, use 303 Aerospace Protectant or IMAR™ on a regular basis to help restore plasticizer protection and add UV protection.

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 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. Strataglass has a special polymer coating that is more scratch resistant and less susceptible to damage caused by folding.

Product bought based on Sailrite recommendations for doing a Sunfish window install. It was right on and we were able to see it in with a quilters sewing machine.
