After some time in use, sails become dirty and loose their shape. Mould stains appear if sails are packed humidly. VM-Sails offers a solution unique in Switzerland to revitalize old Dacron sails in their former properties by bringing back major parts of their original profiles, by regaining their textile tension thereby making them stiff and cracky once more and by brightening up the faded white colour.
