Pinking comes from a hardy bacteria which multiplies inside the boat’s cushion and, regardless of effort, cannot be wiped or scrubbed off from the surface using traditional cleaning solutions. This is because the Pinking stain, much like an ink blot on a shirt, is not just on the surface but is soaked all the way through the vinyl fabric. Until now, boat owners were left with little choice but to replace the seats at great cost or live with the unsightly stains.
The patent pending Pink Away Treatment System is the culmination of two years of R&D. The system consists of two components which work in tandem: the Halotron treatment unit and a special chemical agent called PA-15. The Halotron utilizes a powerful computer control system that relies on sophisticated sensors and proprietary lights to activate Gestalt Scientific’s patent pending PA-15 cleaning agent which is applied to the vinyl. The Halotron together with the PA-15 agent can entirely and safely remove “pinking” stains in 60 minutes. The Halotron is rugged, light weight, portable and, although powerful, is so easy to use anyone can be an expert.
The Gestalt Scientific’s Pink Away System is being offered to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), who have warranty exposure due to Pinking, and boat service providers, such as boat dealers and boat storage facilities, who want to solve their customer’s Pinking problem while creating a revenue stream for their business.
