Sunbrella Clarity® 83008-0000 Black Fabric is a solution-dyed acrylic awning fabric from Glen Raven's Sunbrella Clarity Collection. Sunbrella Clarity is engineered for awnings that need to look their best even when regular cleaning is out of reach. It features a durable polyurethane undercoating for superior water resistance and a special finish that uses the natural elements of sunlight and rain to remove organic contaminants and stains. Sunbrella Clarity is specifically designed for awnings and other permanent structures rather than removable applications, such as covers, in order for the self-cleaning technology to properly work.
The Sunbrella Clarity technology works in two ways to help awnings stay clean and maintain the "like new" appearance. The natural cleaning element of the fabric is first fueled by UV light (even cloudy days or moderate shade will do). The sunlight activates the decomposition of organic material like oils, mold, mildew, grime and VOCs. The second part of the process is triggered by rain or moisture. The surface of the fabric will wet-out by spreading the moisture out to wash away particles of inorganic matter. The fabric will temporarily darken during the wet-out process but will return to its original color quickly after drying. By working together, the natural elements of sunlight and rain will ensure that Sunbrella Clarity is long-lasting and always beautiful.
Clarity is backed with a special polyurethane coating to increase its water resistance and prevent water from penetrating through the awning. This awning fabric is also extremely durable, easy to maintain, and UV resistant. There is a right and wrong side to this awning fabric, meaning only the smooth, soft, uncoated side is meant to be exposed to the outside. Keep the coated side of the fabric on the inside or underside of your applications.
Sunbrella Clarity Fabric is intended for outdoor use. Sunbrella Clarity is perfect for commercial and residential awnings.
