Marine Fabric

Marine Fabric. The mission of Tempotest Marine Fabricis to live every sailing experience with confidence, versatility and style. Thanks to the innovative Teflon® Extreme fabric protector finishing by Parà, all Tempotest Marine fabrics are water/oil repellent, resistant to mould, stains, salt and U.V. fading. Tempotest Marine Fabric combines performance with style and colour, and offer a collection of patterns featuring elegance and originality.

The resistance to horizontal, vertical and diagonal stress is one of the main features of the Tempotest Marine Fabric, Tempotest Malmoe, TempotestStar, Marine Resinato and Tempotest Home, each is studied for maximum adaptability to different uses in the marine industry. 

Marine Fabric refers to a varied array of materials and substrates used in the fabrication and production of awnings, covers, tarps, sunshades, signs and banners for the advertising, boating, trucking, tenting, structural and medical industries.

One of the most popular fabrics used today is solution dyed acrylic such as Tempotest. Such synthetic fabrics last for many years before deteriorating due to harsh UV rays. UV damages varnish (causes degradation, loss of color and elasticity and finally cracking and peeling) and the materials of which sails are made (often Dacron today). To avoid constant boat repair, covers are fabricated for all sails that are left outside, and all brightwork, or highly varnished wood. Hatches are covered for interior sun protection and winches are covered to protect them from deterioration of airborne particles and rain.
