Fabric and Bimini Tops
Bimini tops are often made of canvas, which will fade and deteriorate due to sun exposure. Regular treatment with Marine 31 T-Top Fabric Protectant with SunBlock will keep bimini tops, boat covers, and sails looking great. It resists spots and stains and repels oil, grease, and soil. Plus, Marine 31 T-Top Fabric Protectant with SunBlock has a strong UV protectant to slow the effects of the sun. Use it on outdoor furniture, too.
For spots and spills on carpet and seats, use Marine 31 Fabric & Vinyl Cleaner. The great thing about this cleaner is that it works on carpet and fabrics and on vinyl seats and covers. You only need one product to clean it all. Afterwards, use Marine 31 T-Top Fabric Protectant with SunBlock. Use Marine 31 Vinyl Protectant with SunBlock on vinyl upholstery.
Step 1: Cleaning Your Bimini Top
The key to keeping your boat’s vinyl and fabric surfaces looking and performing like-new is to regularly clean and protect them. Even if you think your boat cover, seat cushion or bimini top is ready for protection, a thorough cleaning with Marine 31 Fabric & Vinyl Cleaner first will ensure all ground-in dirt and grime is removed so your protectant of choice will properly bond to the surface. Simply put, the cleaner the surface, the better your fabric or vinyl protectant will work to repel UV rays.

Step 2: Protecting Your Bimini Top
Once the bimini top has been thoroughly cleaned and allowed an adequate amount of time to dry, apply two coats of Marine 31 T-Top Fabric Protectant with SunBlock.
Marine 31 T-Top Fabric Protectant with SunBlock provides the best UV protection for all exterior and interior marine fabric surfaces including old and new bimini tops. Formulated using SunBlock technology – a fusion of Marine 31’s proprietary UV absorbers and advanced Ciba Tinuvin UV Blockers – treated surfaces will retain their color and texture while repelling dirt, dust, oil, grease, acid rain, salt, insects and bird droppings. Regularly treated surfaces will resist UV-induced fading, cracking and discoloring.
Marine 31 T-Top Fabric Protectant with SunBlock creates a durable, crystal clear protective barrier that resists common stains that plague a boat’s fabric surfaces from every day use, including salt, acid raid and bird droppings. You’ll be amazed at how water beads up and rolls off treated fabric surfaces, taking dirt and grime with it. Fabric surfaces that are regularly treated with Marine 31 T-Top Fabric Protectant with SunBlock will remain cleaner in between regular washes.
