Cushion Wrap Silk Film Demonstration
Cushion Wrap Silk Film Center Fold 54″ is a noiseless plastic silk film that makes cushion foam easier to install into a fabric cushion cover. Wrap the silk film around the cushion foam and slip into the fabric cover. This cushion silk film is specially formulated to be silent under decorative or contract fabrics and also acts as a moisture barrier for outdoor cushions. Use Silk Film, also known as EZ Film, with a vacuum to shrink the cushion foam by up to 70% before inserting into the fabric cover. This makes for even easier foam installation and ensures that the foam fills the cushion evenly (even into corners). Cover and tuck the film loosely around the foam. Insert a vacuum hose into an open end of the film directly onto the foam and turn on. The vacuum's suction will compress the silk film over the foam and shrink the foam. Turn off the vacuum and the foam will expand to original size. Sold in 10 yard lengths at: http://www.sailrite.com/Cushion-Wrap-Silk-Film-Center-Fold-54 Cushion Wrap Silk Film Center Fold 54″ Specifications: • Color: Opaque White • Material: EMA (Ethylene-Methyl Acrylate Copolymer) • Folded Width: 27″ • Unfolded Width: 54″
