If you've ever spent time aboard a boat, you know that boats can be corrosive. Several things may harm a boat and make it look not very good. Maintaining a boat may be costly, but if you take the time to safeguard it, you can save money. Ceramic coating is a terrific product to protect your boat and preserve its appearance for many years. Learn more about ceramic coating for boats and the finest ceramic coating materials for boats available from HydroSilex!
What is Boat Ceramic Coating?
Ceramic coating is a relatively recent innovation in the marine industry. Ceramic coatings are transparent polymer coatings put over the existing paint job or bare metal on a yacht. The protective layer adheres to the underlying surface and creates a highly resistant barrier against UV rays, pollutants, saltwater, and freshwater. The ceramic coating adheres to the surface of your boat, making it simple to remove any debris, oil, salt, or saltwater that may come into touch with it. Ceramic coatings are also highly corrosion-resistant owing to their hydrophobic properties and ability to scatter water droplets.
Ceramic Coating Spray Vs. Normal Ceramic Coating. Which Is The Best One For Your Boat?
Each of these goods provides users with unique advantages. But which type of coating is the best option for you? It depends on what you want in an automobile ceramic coating product. Here are our recommendations for each customer type.
Spray Ceramic Coatings
Spray Ceramic Coatings are solvent-based sprays containing 10 to 14 percent SiO2 by weight. It is extremely simple to use; spray it over the surface, wipe it off with a microfiber towel, then turn the towel over to remove any residue.
These goods may be used as a ceramic coating "booster" to increase the durability of your nano-coating or as a stand-alone product. The hydrophobic characteristics may last for about one year. However, in most situations, users apply the product monthly or every few months.
How To Apply Ceramic Coating For Boats?
Boat ceramic coating consists of three stages to applying the ceramic coating. Let's take a look with HydroSilex!
Wash The Boat
This stage is to remove all the contaminants that stick to the boat's paint. After removing the dust and grime, we will dry the boat to get a high gloss finish for your boat.
Use HydroSilex Surface Prep Spray
Mix and spray the surface prep spray on the boat. Wait for a few seconds, and then we use the clean microfiber towels to buff the surface. This stage will remove any previous wax or sealant, which is safe on vinyl and Gelcoat. We go through the entire boat.
What Is The Lifetime Of Ceramic Coating On A Boat?
The durability of each coating varies. The coating's durability will also depend on how well it is maintained over time. It is advisable to clean the boat using a nonabrasive, high-foaming soap formulated for ceramic coatings. Additionally, we suggest applying Activate, a marine-grade silica surface spray, every three to six months to preserve the coating.
