Frequently Asked Questions
- What will your product do for my boat?
(Depending on condition of gelcoat and pigment remaining in paint.)
UV/96 will give your boat a very shiny wet look finish and protect it
from ultra violet rays, pollution, and tanic acid thus increasing the
longevity of its finish.
- Do you use compounds?
Only in dire circumstances. Our cleaners are non-abrasive and
chemically remove the oxidation. In most cases with severe oxidation,
a light compound with Finesse, followed by our application of UV/96
will do the job.
- Is UV/96 a wax, Teflon, or silicone?
UV/96 is an acrylic based marine formula that when applied with a
machine creates a molecular fusion between the surface to be treated
and the finish, and becomes part of the finish, not a coating.
- Why is your product better than a normal wax?
Waxes have a very low melting point. In the hot sun the chemicals
break down and lose their efficiency. Waxes then become a temporary
cleaner and last approximately 7 days.
Our cleaners are non-abrasive. Because of this, the top layer of
gelcoat is not harmed in any way. Our UV/96 with its acrylic base can
withstand the sun and last 6 to 200 times longer than your
long does your product last?
(Depending on the condition of pigment remaining in the paint or
The hull will last up to a year, and the superstructure should last
from 6 to 12 months. At this time we would apply an annual recoat of
UV/96 bringing the boat back to its original appearance when we first
applied the system.
