Prevention is Better Than Cure
The importance of having a moisture-free
hull cannot be overemphasized. The drier
the laminate, the lighter the hull, the better
the performance, the more efficient fuel use
and the longer the gelcoat life. A boat hull that
has absorbed moisture will also sit lower in the
water than intended and will reduce the
responsiveness of the boat.
The InterProtect® System was designed to
repair hulls which have experienced gelcoat
blistering. However, the best time to attack hull
blistering is before it happens.
Taking preventative action before a problem
occurs will greatly reduce the likelihood of an
expensive repair and increase resale value.
If you’re buying a new boat, protect your
investment with the InterProtect® System
before it ever goes in the water!
InterProtect® is a unique two-part epoxy
designed to reduce the potential of water
absorption by fiberglass hulls. InterProtect® is
unique among epoxies because it has
Micro-Plates®, a protective barrier within its
film to slow down water permeation.
Technically, InterProtect® Micro-Plates® provide
millions of overlapping microscopic plates that
create a barrier similar to shingles on a roof.
These overlapping Micro-Plates® eliminate any
direct path for water migration and also
improve the sag resistance of the epoxy
making application easier.
