PVC Technical characteristics

The enhanced Infinity Process provides to RECacril® Marine fabrics a softer and more ductile touch than the standard fabrics, facilitating their preparation to better adapt to the complex shapes of the nautical structures.

RECacril® Marine Warranty

For 10 years after installation, RECASENS warranty covers only the rot-proof properties and color fastness of the fabrics regularly maintained, under normal use and environment.

RECASENS should either replace free of charge or, at its convenience, reimburse the invoice value of the section of fabric recognized as faulty, excluding any costs or any other compensation for any reason whatsoever.

The warranty may not protect against any damage due to abuse, neglect, vandalism, burns of any kind, fires and natural disasters.

Consequently there is no cover for:

  • Faulty maintenance or the use of unsuitable products or instruments: no detergent, chemical product or solvent can be used, NOR any scraper or other instrument that may damage the surface.
  • Defects due to the aging and normal wear of the fabric.
  • Atmospheric or phytosanitary pollution.
  • Soiling caused by animals.
  • The repair of damage or defects in the fabric resulting from accidents or negligence not attributable to RECASENS or resulting from force majeure.
  • Faulty assembly or handling by the user, the projection of various products, hanging objects on the fabric, falling objects, bumps, road accidents, vandalism, burns from cigarettes or other sources, fire.
  • Lightning or unusual climatic or environmental conditions.

The warranty excludes the cost of any mechanical device (hardware, mechanisms, structures, etc.) as well as any cost of manufacturing, assembly and installation.

The warranty takes effect from the date of installation of awnings, curtains or any other product made with RECASENS canvases.

The RECASENS canvases are a component of the final product. If you detect any defective fabric, please contact your installer or distributor from whom you purchased the product.

Maintenance for RECacril® Marine Canvases

The  high technology finish, Infinity Process provides the RECASENS canvases with a long lasting protection against mold and excellent water and oil repellency, making awnings protect you from both sun and water for many years.

However, the accumulation of dust, air pollution particles, foreign organic materials and general dirt can damage this protection, shortening the life of the canvas so they must be eliminated.

The most effective method for maintaining canvases is to clean once a month with water with a low pressure hose, thereby, dirt accumulation into the fabric is avoided.

It is very important that after cleaning with water, the canvas should be completely dry before rolling back the awning.

In case of rain we can leave the awning open, since rain washes dirt. If for any reason you have to roll the wet awning, it must be unrolled as soon as possible and let it dry. In times of continuous rains is advisable to keep the awnings rolled.

If this periodic water washing is done, in most environments, you only need make a process more thorough cleaning every 2 or 3 years.

The steps to follow are:

  1. Brush off excess dust and dirt with a soft brush. NEVER brush with stiff brushes since damage the finish film tissue.
  2. Spray the awning with clean water. If a hose is used, to avoid high pressure.
  3. Prepare a solution of solvent-free soap in warm water (no more than 40ºC) and apply it on the awning, letting penetrate tissue.
  4. Rinse with water to remove all traces of soap.
  5. Let air dry and no wind the awning until the canvas is completely dry.

The RECacril® Marine tarps are protected against the growth of fungi, however, whether fungi can grow on embedded dirt.

To clean these stains are needed more intensive cleaning using the following procedure:

  1. Brush off excess dust and dirt with a soft brush. NEVER brush with stiff brushes since damage the finish film tissue.
  2. Prepare a solution with 10% household bleach, 20% of solvent-free neutral detergent and 70% water.
  3. Apply the solution onto the fabric, leaving act between 15 and 20 minutes maximum.
  4. Rinse with clean water several times, as if bleach residues will remain on canvas, with the combined action of the sun, could damage the fabric.
  5. Allow to air dry and no wind the awning until the canvas is completely dry.
  6. Repeat the process if necessary.

To protect the environment, be sure to pick up the dirty water when using bleach as it can be harmful to animals and plants.

Consumer information

RECASENS fabrics, Technical Textiles, are fabrics easy to maintain. The fabric surface is non-porous plastic, making it difficult for dirt to adhere but easy to remove.

Dirt accumulation can end up damaging the PVC canvas finish, causing accelerated deterioration. It is recommended to periodically clean the canvas to prevent rot and mold growth.

For effective cleaning, sponge out using soapy water and then rinse with clean water. Let dry the fabric positioned in a perfect tension.

We recommend using neutral (non-ionic) and a low percentage of alcohol detergents. Avoid using highly acidic or highly alkaline detergents and do not use solvents or bleaching agents such as bleach or hydrogen peroxide.

To avoid damaging the canvas finish, do not use chemicals or abrasive brushes or cleaning systems using water jets at high pressure.
