12 in. x 12 ft. Black Marine Carpet
The 12 in. x 12 ft. Black Marine Carpet installs on wood cradle bunks on a boat lift or on a boat trailer. Able to withstand harsh marine environments. Water repellant. Factory dyed black. The adhesive backing helps hold the fibers tight that helps with long-lasting carpet. Rolled up and sealed for shipping.
The Cut Pile is a carpet where the fibers are looped through the primary and cut on the “face” side during the manufacturing process. This allows the fibers to bloom out and give a clean, uniform look.
Designed for outdoors. Suggested that you protect it from the elements whenever possible.
Over time, sunlight will fade the color of the carpet. Keeping it out of the sunlight when not in use, will reduce fading and keep the yarn fibers from drying out.
Due to the inherent nature of marine yarns, a water/bleach mixture of 50/50 can be used to clean most marine carpets. You will want to use the mixture in a small area not seen to confirm any problems. Cleaning quickly and moderation in applying the mixture and blotting with a dry towel is your best course of action on any stains.
When to Replace?
Depending on your climate and location and how you store your boat, over time, your carpet will begin to show its age. The yarn will begin to fade or in some cases start to fall out of your carpet. The backing may break down over time and separate. Once these start to happen, unfortunately, it is time to replace the carpet. Unfortunately, due to their inherent nature, marine carpets cannot be repaired.
