Boat Canvas Reviver - Application Instructions

Please note: Do not dilute or mix Reviver with any other product! This would seriously impair the product performance and may damage your boat cover.

How to revive your boat canvas

  1. Ensure that the boat cover is dry and free from grease, dirt and previous waterproof coatings by thoroughly cleaning with Boat Canvas Cleaner before commencing application.
  2. Unscrew the bottle top and pour Reviver into a suitable container/bowl.
  3. Stir well prior to application.
  4. Apply Reviver with a new 5cm/2inch paintbrush using even strokes across the cover. It is best to commence application in the centre of the boat cover and as quickly as possible progress towards each side, front, and back of the boat cover. Wipe excess drips from bodywork, trims and glass with a damp cloth. 
    Do not apply in direct sunlight, as this will cause the Reviver to dry out too quickly and produce an uneven result!
  5. It is important to allow Reviver to dry between coats. Always ensure that you have enough Reviver to coat the boat cover completely and that you will not run out half way through application!
    Renovo recommends applying at least two coats to achieve greater depth of colour on badly faded boat covers.
    Reviver can also be applied in the same way as above to the fabric on the interior of the boat canvas.
  6. Allow the boat canvas to dry for approximately three hours, this will depend on the drying conditions. The Reviver may dry out more quickly if it is a warm day and may take longer to dry if it is a damp day. Do not expose the boat canvas to rain/wet weather until the Reviver has completely dried.
  7. Wash out brush in warm, soapy water.

We advise that to prolong the life of the re-colour provided by Reviver, you should allow 24 hours drying time and then protect it by applying Renovo Marine Ultra Proofer.
