Strataglass - Press Polished Clear Vinyl


Strataglass™ is the clear-choice alternative solution to vinyl and the preferred choice
in applications where clarity is a necessity!

High performance Strataglass sheets have established an international reputation for quality enclosures
in the boating world. The special formulations and manufacturing procedure of Strataglass offer a unique
coatingStrataglass U Zip ensuring extreme scratch resistance, exceptional transparency, dirt resistance and durability.

The exclusive manufacturing process prohibits imperfections such as air bubbles and creases, delivering perfect vision from all angles and in all atmospheric conditions. Strataglass also possesses superior
resistance to the ageing affects of UV rays when compared with other materials and a special finish also prevents scratching and friction burn.

An extremely smooth surface combined with the special finish, Strataglass sheets prevent build up of dirt
and pollution, thus avoiding yellowing and prolonging the lifespan of the product.

From center consoles to mega yachts, Strataglass has been used by the most
discriminating canvas shops in the world for the past 20 years.


Scratch Resistant Coating
Prevents fine line scratches from washing, drying, rolling up and down and abrasion from roll-up straps. Regular vinyl can be scratched by a simple paper towel.

We have made our name on the near-perfect visual clarity looking through Strataglass. Regular vinyls have blue or gray haziness to them which is instantly visible when comparing Strataglass to the regular vinyls being offered on the market.

Resistance to Fallout, Runoff and Overspray
You may have noticed gray streaks in your vinyl curtains in the past, consistent with the brass grommets on your Bimini top or runoff points of your top. The coating on Strataglass blocks these elements from etching into the surface of the vinyl. This is true of most trace elements, even overspray can be carefully cleaned off using lacquer thinner (see Trouble Shooting section for more information). Regular vinyls absorb runoff elements and would be destroyed using lacquer thinner to remove overspray.

Because you will see clearer, longer, you will find you don’t need to replace the curtains as often. The question often asked is “How long will Strataglass last?” Our only answer is that the original boats installed with Strataglass still looked great after 5 years in the brutal Florida sun.

Environmentally Advantageous
The protective coating on Strataglass is uniquely resistant to today’s harsh environment. Industrial fallout – power, steel, chemical, paper, plants, jet exhaust and acid rain – are realities anywhere on our waterfront. Our coating prevents these elements from leaching into the vinyl. The results of leaching can be spotting, hazing, “orange” corners, and gray lines in the vinyl, to name a few. Strataglass resists these elements to give you a cleaner, longer life expectancy for your vinyl.
