OMNOVA Marine Upholstery.
Oceans of Experience and Leagues of Versatility.

OMNOVA Solutions has served the needs of manufacturers of marine equipment since first converting Chris Craft Marine to vinyl during the 1950s – replacing the traditional canvas material with a higher performing alternative.  Today, we are still the industry’s “one-stop-shopping” resource for watercraft interior and exterior upholstery, along with a number of performance accessories. Our products are supplied directly to OEM manufacturers, as well as to distributors, seat builders and retail outlets. As a measure of our reputation for quality in the marketplace, OMNOVA is an approved supplier of choice to the prestigious American Boatbuilders Association (ABA) industry buying group.

Our established Nautolex® performance upholstery products, serving the Marine OEM market, include:

  • Interior Urethanes
  • Interior semi-polyurethanes
  • Nonwoven-backed exterior vinyls
  • Knit-expanded exterior vinyls
  • Vinyl exterior flooring

Manufacturers and end use customers trust the Nautolex name, along with our high performance PreFixx® protective coating.  By accommodating the specific and, sometimes, non-traditional needs of manufacturers, OMNOVA is known throughout the market for its expertise and flexibility in both design and custom capabilities.  With our Design First Collaborative* custom design service that can access over 500 textures, and a best-of-class color lab, we are prepared to meet the customer needs of today with an eye on innovative trends for tomorrow.
