You can help your customers avoid costly paint jobs or protect the finish of their newly painted boats with the Paint Protection System and the Polishing System from Sea-Shield.


The latter includes three products for paint and gelcoat exterior-surface restoration: Heavy Cut No. 1, Cut and Polish No. 2 and Swirl Remover No. 3. The paint and gelcoat protection system consists of two products: the UV- and water-resistant Nano Coating and Exhaust Guard, which is applied after the Nano Coating has cured. Exhaust Guard protects the entire boat from exhaust residue, not just the transom, says Sea-Shield owner Francisco Linares. The products are targeted to marine professionals, although boat owners can be taught to use the system, Linares says. The San Diego company is looking to expand distribution. The products are available in Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Miami and Stuart, as well as in San Diego, Spain and the South of France, Linares says.
