Fire-retardant clear vinyl 

Visilite FR passes NFPA-701 Test Method 2 for fire resistance and is part of a collection that also includes double polished, extruded and interleaf styles. The vinyl offers lasting visual clarity and durability for a variety of outdoor applications including patio and marine enclosures, car and boat windows, commercial enclosures, tents and more. All styles offer easy handling, heat stability, and are available in a variety of thickness and put-ups.

Snap-on cover fastener 

New Strex® stretch fastener is a snap-on boat cover accessory that makes mooring and covering a boat easy. It attaches to the existing snap-on boat cover in minutes without special tools and provides strength and durability to prevent canvas from tearing. It ensures that fastening and removing the cover is hassle-free. Installation only requires a few minutes, a Phillips head screwdriver, adhesive and the looped fastener.

Pattern digitizing system 

PhotoModeler Technologies has released a Pattern Capture Add-on to its software. PhotoModeler uses a standard camera to measure and model objects, and converts the pattern outlines and markings to accurate digital CAD files. The software corrects distortions to produce an accurate digital vector representation that can be further fine-tuned in CAD and sent to CAM for automated fabrication. The system offers large pattern capture, high accuracy, cost-effectiveness and flexibility.

Durable, stylish upholstery 

Designed for beauty and strength, Batyline Lounge performance upholstery fabrics for exterior applications hold up under the demands of weather, UV rays and active lifestyles. Its dimensional stability resists sags or tears. With subtle colors that blend with nature, the fabric is low maintenance, quick drying, easy to clean and fire retardant. Phthalate free and recyclable at the end of its service life.

Aqualon thread 

Vicar International has added new colors to its line of Aqualon #92 Polyester Thread. Now offering 32 colors, the thread provides excellent UV resistance and matches the most popular acrylic colors available in the marine marketplace. Specifically constructed for outdoor applications, the thread is recommended to match Sunbrella® marine acrylic colors. Intended for awnings, canvas, patio furniture and automotive
convertible tops.

Pinking-resistant vinyl 

Sunbrella® Horizon is the company’s first nonwoven marine seating fabric crafted to resist the notorious pinking effect. It is backed by a three-year warranty against bacterial staining, a first for marine vinyl products. In addition, the fabric carries a five-year limited warranty against loss of strength and color, plus resistance to mildew and atmospheric chemicals. Boasting a luxuriously soft hand, the fabric is available in two distinct embossing patterns and a wide array of 30 colors in a 54-inch width.
