Introducing an exciting breakthrough in marine maintenance: Monofoil safely and effectively repels mold, mildew and over 50 types of bacteria on upholstery, canvas, fiberglass and any other boat surface without damaging chemicals – for up to 3 months! Unlike traditional cleaners and disinfectants that only kill during the original application, MonoFoil molecularly bonds with the surface then attacks mold and mildew each time it attempts to adhere to the treated surface—for up to three months. This can save you money in cleaning solutions, countless hours in maintenance and can add years to the life of your canvas.
