Video 01 – Marine Ceramic Coating Product Overview - View Product

We have our Marine Ceramic Coating here that’s been specifically designed to apply to marine gelcoats, paints, and metal surfaces. This product is developed in South Florida and optimized to be applied and used in a marine environment and withstand the harsh environment of salt and sun exposure that your boat is going to get. This product is going to give you up to 18 months protection leaving the surface extremely hydrophobic giving you incredible gloss to the surface and make overall maintenance much easier on your boat. It comes in a variety sizes. We have as small as 50ml up to 250ml here. On the 50ml size you’re going to get about 60SQFT of coverage. That allows for two coats. And then on the 250ml size, you’re getting roughly 300 SQFT of coverage.

It's important to note that with the marine ceramic coating, is this product does not hide or remove oxidization. So this must be removed before applying the ceramic coating. This is designed to enhance and lock in the current condition of the surface. It will not hide or cover up any imperfections.

Marine Ceramic Coating Benefits:

  • Creates a hard barrier that protects up to 18 months
  • Better-than-new finish, increasing gloss and shine
  • Creates a super hydrophobic surface
  • UV protection prevents fading and oxidization
  • Protect and enhance gelcoat, paint and metal surfaces
  • Maintenances is a breeze

This is going to remove light swirl marks and scratches from the surface and very moderate or very light oxidization. This is designed to smooth the surface out and increase the shine while getting it ready for ceramic coating.

Nano Polish Benefits:

  • Light abrasive – removes light swirl marks and scratches

Video 06 – RPL Product Overview - View Product
We have one of our newest products here – RPL. It stands for Repellent Protective Layer. This product is designed to specifically deal with exhaust stains and soot on the surface as well as black streaks. This product is a top coat after you have already applied some protection on the surface, whether it be our Marine Ceramic Coating or our Ceramic Spray – Shine & Shield. And this, like I said, is a top layer that’s going to provide that stain resistance. It’s an oleophobic product that resists the oils that are in exhaust stains and the black streaks making it much easier to clean by simply wiping off with a wet rag.

This product is very easy to apply. You use a microfiber applicator and put a little bit onto the sponge. Wipe it up and down, side to side in a 3’ section and lightly buff it to a uniform finish. Only one coat is required.

RPL Benefits:

  • Say goodbye to black streaks and exhaust stains
  • Final top-coat enhances the self-cleaning of the surface
  • Exposure to natural light chemically breaks down dirt & contaminants
  • Creates an oleophobic surface (oil repellent)

Video 08 – Vinyl Ceramic Coating Product Overview - View Product
We have our vinyl ceramic coating here. This product is excellent! It’s a ceramic coating designed specifically for vinyl cushions. And the difference between this product and a ceramic coating you would be applying to your paint, is this is going to allow the material to still maintain its flexibility. So this is a flexible coating and is ideal for surfaces that are soft and they are going to expand or contract over the course of time. So this won’t alter the feel or the softness of vinyl cushions but it will protect it from UV damage, fading, salt exposure and moisture from getting into the surface.

Vinyl Ceramic Coating Benefits:

  • Protects and enhances the appearance of vinyl cushions
  • UV protection to reduce fading
  • Creates a hydrophobic surface to help reduce staining and mold
  • Flexible coating allows the vinyl cushions to expand and contract

Pontoon Ceramic Coating Benefits:

  • Hybrid sol-gel coating that molecularly bonds to the surface
  • Designed to be directly applied to metal surfaces

This product is going to make the surface super hydrophobic and very slick and add a lot of gloss. It’s a very simple spray-on / wipe-off application. And this can also be used as a maintenance product for the Marine Ceramic Coating.

It's important to note that this product does not remove oxidization so the surface does need to be properly buffed and prepped before applying the coating.
