Care & Cleaning
Outside Surface Only

 

Intercept Fabric™ with WeatherMAX 80 is bleach cleanable, with no unpleasant running, marking, or color transfer. Due to our HydroMax finish, it is inherently more resistant to dirt and mildew, and requires
much less maintenance than comparable woven fabrics. Intercept Fabric™ with WeatherMAX 80 may be spot washed by using a soapy solution of a mild detergent and lukewarm water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove soap and allow to air dry.

If sewing machine oil is transferred to the fabric while working with it, we recommend Pull Out 2™, manufactured by American Niagara Company. It has proven to be the best method for removing oil spots from outside of the Intercept Fabric™ with WeatherMAX 80 without leaving stains or spots behind. For best results, Pull Out 2™ requires two applications. To find out more, contact ANC: www.americanniagara.com or (770) 441-5900.

Mildew cannot grow on the fabric itself. However, if not cleaned regularly, mildew can grow from the accumulation of dirt on the surface of the fabric. For mildew stains, prepare a solution of one (1) cup of bleach plus one half (1/2) cup of mild detergent per gallon of water. Spray on the entire area and allow soaking. Rinse with clean water and allow to air dry.

Care & Cleaning
Inside Surface Only (Intercept)

(1) Distilled water, soap and water or a mild solvent such as IPA (isopropyl alcohol) can be used to clean the inside of the Intercept canvas.

(2) Clean and thoroughly dry the inside surface – an IPA can be used to accelerate this drying process since it flashes (evaporates readily)

(3) Check for tears, abrasions and/or holes. Do not use abrasive cleaners or abrasive pads on the inner surface of the Intercept fabric.

Cleaning, per the above instructions, will not impact the longevity or performance of the Intercept Fabric. Call or email us for additional information if required.
