Surlast is a solution dyed polyester fabric designed to be flexible and easy for manufacturers to use. Its urethane coating enhances the stability of the weave and allows for greater water resistance, while also minimizing shrinkage and stretching.
Surlast features a high UV, water and mold and mildew resistance and has excellent tear and abrasion resistance. It is also non-abrasive to gel coat and other popular marine finishes and offers outstanding silkscreen adhesion.
Surlast does not require a hot knife or serging during fabrication and resists unraveling. As with most coated products, for best results, the non-coated face of the fabric should be exposed to the sun.
