Quantum Sale - What is Vacuwash and why should I use it?


Vacuwash was developed in North America over the past decade and has shown exceptional results with even the modern laminated sails. The process involves placing the sails in a vacuum chamber, removing the air and water from the voids between the sails layers and fibres, slowly introducing a cleaning agent that penetrates every layer and subsequently thoroughly rinsing the sail. The sails are cleaned in 3-4 days.

There is nothing else like Vacuwash on the market. The process removes mildew in sails and does so without damaging the sails or adhesives in any way; there is no agitation, scrubbing or high pressure water washing at all.

Cleaning your sails and canvas will increase the replacement cycle. Salt, mildew, dirt, bird droppings and pollution are all working at the fibres and stitching. An annual professional clean will remove all this and help keep the fabrics in tip top condition. When you consider how often the rest of your boat is cleaned, then it is a wonder why sails and canvas have been left of the list for so long.


Prevention is always the best option, applying McLube Sailkote Plus to the sail after cleaning will help prevent the mould from returning, as well giving a friction free surface which will furl up to 30% tighter, great for in mast and boom furled mainsails.

Make sure to request a quote from Quantum to go into the running to win a $500 Vacuwash voucher.
