Verolite eliminates exterior maintenance and periodic repainting. Verolite covered canoes therefore do not take on added weight with the passing years. Verolite is more durable and scuff resistant than painted canvas and it is lighter.
Verolite is available on Chibougamua canoes 14'-17' in red, green and orange, also on Wacanichi canoes 15' and 16' in red, green or orange.
Verolite is available on all other models and sizes up to 20' in green and orange only. Verolite is not affected by heat or cold. It has been thouroughly tested for several years and is now the expressed preference of knowledgeable buyers including dealers, camp operators and outfitters. Verolite is available in Red, Green or Orange.
The red verolite is not guaranteed to keep its color.
Tremblay Canoes Ltd. does not guarantee the Verolite material against any acids, oils, greases, solvents or cleaning compounds to which the purchaser may bubject the covering; nor any discoloring which may be caused by undetected chemicals or algae present in the water.
