Stamoid™ Top Vinyl Fabric is the most popular vinyl used on super yachts. This vinyl-coated, high-tenacity woven polyester is completely waterproof and treated against mildew. Stamoid Top has outstanding UV resistance and almost no shrinkage (less than 0.5%). Due to its high-tenacity, woven polyester construction, Stamoid Top does not expand or have humidity sagging problems common to many other marine fabrics. It maintains flexibility in temperature extremes from the hot tropics to near zero temperatures.
Stamoid Top Vinyl Fabric is easy to sew, as well as being easy to fold and stow in tight places. As it has a vinyl coating on both sides, Sailrite® recommends using it with the lightly textured, coated-side facing outside and the smooth, shiny side facing inside. It's great for marine awnings, biminis, boat covers, T-tops, chafe protection, dodgers, enclosures and weather cloths. It's also perfect for outdoor and RV/automotive awnings.
Keep your Stamoid Top Vinyl Fabric clean with mild soap and water. Sailrite recommends protecting your Stamoid with IMAR™ Stamoid Marine Vinyl Protective Cream to keep your vinyl fabric protected and looking great.
Stamoid Top Vinyl Fabric is specifically designed for outdoor use. Do not use for seating.
Please Note: Stamoid Vinyl Fabric is also available in a lighter 8.82 oz. weight that is vinyl-coated on only one side for lightweight covers.

The finished product looks great!
We replaced an existing canvas bimini top with the stamoid fabric. The stamoid was easy to work with but because of the size of our bimini it took two of us maneuvering the fabric while sewing. We are home sewers usually just making repairs to existing canvas seams, zippers or taking on small jobs using our Sailrite sewing machine. The new stamoid bimini turned out great.
I made a large t top with white stamoid fabric. It is very strong, easy to sew and doesn't fray. I made a 2 inch strip which I first attached with 1/4 inch basting tape prior to sewing the inside and binding the outside. The center of the fabric was sewn together with a 1/2 inch seam and a top stitch. Our boat has a black stamoid top and still looks brand new after 4 years. We have been regularly treating it with 303 but other than that we haven't done a thing to it. This fabric is tough, easy to sew and does not leak. I have also made bolsters out of the lighter grade stamoid and found it easier to clean than most other fabrics. Stamoid is tough, long lasting, does not stretch and is easier to clean than most materials.
