Sunbrella Firesist® 3rd Edition - Black - 82008.0000 60" yarn uses state-of-the-art technology to produce fiber that is engineered for awning applications and formulated to be inherently fire retardant. Since fire protection is an inherent attribute of the fabric, it will not leach or wash out during the life of the fabric.
Glen Raven is utilizing years of awning "experience" to apply a special finish and coating that will enhance stain resistance and water resistance. With the proper awning pitch and fabrication, water beads and runs off the fabric.
Enhanced dimensional stability and strength keeps Firesist® taut on the awning frame through the full range of climatic conditions ensuring that your awning project "fits right" regardless of temperature and humidity.
Abrasion: Exceeds 50,000 Double Rubs.
FIRESIST is easy to maintain. It can be washed, or simply brushed and rinsed. Proper care and cleaning will help keep Firesist looking great.
For normal care and cleaning add 2 ounces of mild soap (such as Woolite, Dreft, Ivory) to 1 gallon of lukewarm water. Clean fabric with a soft-bristle brush. Rinse thoroughly with cold water and air dry.
For stubborn stains, add up to half (1/2) cup of bleach to 1 gallon of water. Spray lightly on the fabric. Do not soak. Rinse immediately. Prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals can impact the fabric coating.
Cleaning with harsh cleaners such as bleach may require a re-treatment for restoring water repellency. Glen Raven recommends 303 High Tech Fabric Guard for FIRESIST fabrics.
