Yes a bottom paint that last more than 5 years, that bonds and seals the fiberglass, that increases the speed of any boat, without poluting is kind of difficult to believe...we are actually testing this product, next week we will spray a 40 Luhrs open custom to run some more tests.

Small samples are sitting on a very hot lagoon in Martinique, we are documenting the condition every week. we also have samples in Pompano Beach Florida and Lauderdale.

We do not understand what contribute to this coating molecular stiffness but all the test results demonstrated a lack of crystalline structure (the amorphous nature of the polymer) We came to the conclusion that as a coating to seal the bottom of the boat to avoid osmosis is far superior that any barrier coat available. ( we attempted in vain to do significant damage on this this coating after hitting repeatedly the surface with a metal hammer!)
We were told that Robalo will do several hulls with this product on the mold, this will not only protect the fiberglass from moisture but also work as a bottom paint, we are waiting for our Luhrs to be completed to better understand the application and to run more tests.

For now it is too good to be true! "this coating is like finding a very nice looking girl, that love to cook, great in bed, with very good income, a yacht and a nice house on the canal, funny, smart, out going and on top of all, single and looking for a man just like you..... (what is wrong with that picture? it is for all of us to find out....) I will keep you posted.

Or, you might be connected with the company.

The website says nothing. No list of ingredients, no explanation of how the product works, and no comparison to existing, commonly used products.

I believe I'll use something that's been tried and tested. My diver recommends Petit Trinidad SR for my area.

It would certainly be very good and a blessing, particularly in Europe where many boats are kept afloat, but there has been many similar products announced and most have dissapeared from the market in a short time ............ hope that this one does not and is as good as promised ...

Does the product have blisters under it--and the laminate OK, or has the laminate blistered? Why sandblast, rather than sodablast or if the laminate peel? Sand blasting has been shown to lead to further osmotic problems down the line.

This thread has the appearance of potential SPAM, with possibly a troll chiming in. The junior members taking an interest is just too strange. So I'm going to lock this up until someone convinces me otherwise.
