SUITABLE FOR ALL FIBREGLASS ITEMS EXPOSED TO THE ELEMENTS
Do you know what your boat is made of and how it came to be.
It may help explain the special characteristics of these amazing vessels.
Fibreglass as we know it was patented in 1936 under the brand Fiberglas by Owens-Corning. That same year, polyester resin was patented by DuPont.
It was found that the fibreglass could be reinforced with the resin to make a very strong, sturdy composite. The first boat made of fibreglass impregnated with polyester resin was built in 1942 and that is still how most boats are built today.
For added durability and style, the fibreglass hull is covered in a gel coat that gives it its slick, shiny appearance. This gel coat is subject to oxidation but this can be prevented with regular maintenance.
Boat manufacturers recommend washing, polishing, and waxing all the fibreglass surfaces regularly to prevent oxidation of the gel coat.
Even though the boat may be structurally sound forever, it won’t look it if the gel coat is corroding.
Meguiars 49 Oxidation Remover eliminates moderate oxidation, scratches, stains and tough water spots on all fibreglass gel coat and painted marine or RV surfaces.
Bring the lustre and colour back to your boat or RV Gel coat oxidizes just like clear coat auto finishes. Exposure to salt water and sun accelerates the oxidation process, resulting in a dull, chalky haze over fiberglass boats and RVs. The chalkiness obscures the true colour of your boat or RV.
Meguiars 49 Oxidation Remover is a heavy duty cleaner for the stains, oxidation, and scratches that affect fibreglass gel coats. Oxidation Remover eliminates the chalky, cloudy signs of oxidation and restores the vibrant colour to the gelcoat.
Most scratches, stubborn stains, and water spots will disappear, leaving only smooth, shiny fibreglass. Meguiars 49 Oxidation Remover is specially formulated for gel coated fiberglass. Gel coat is a very tough, resin finish. Meguiars 49 deep cleans the gel coat better than a car polish to restore the depth of colour. Older RVs and boats will look like new
