Isinglass Restored

We first hand wash with fresh microfiber cloths to remove the dirt and salt.  We then select a polish specifically formulated for isinglass restoration then apply and buff.   The process involves many repetitive wipings in both vertical and horizontal directions and may require removal of the panels from the boat and machine polishing.   The procedures we employ will also remove most ultraviolet (a yellow/brown discoloration) damage unless the discoloration has permeated the vinyl to such an extent that replacement is required.  Never use alcohol, ammonia, RainX or any other chemicals on your isinglass as they will accelerate discoloration, degradation and promote drying leading to tearing and cracking.  We recommend and use only Plexus as part of routine maintenance to protect and keep isinglass supple.
