These are some of the most common questions and answers about our product.
Repel Pro will last much longer than a traditional boat wax or polymer sealant without re-applying, typically 18-24 months in southern states and 3-4 seasons up north. Depending on how often you want to perform maintenance, the boat will need wax every three months while Repel Pro will only need a touch-up (not a complete application) every 12-18 months in order to keep the finish well protected.
Repel Pro has a hardness of 9H, which is currently the best rating in the industry. The marine grade formula is composed of SiO2 nano particles suspended in our advanced carrier agent with solids of roughly 90%.
No, we do not suggest applying wax or sealant over the coating because it will create a static layer that will attract contaminates. Repel Pro is superior to traditional waxes and polymer sealants, and once applied, you will never need to wax again, only maintain and touch up the coating as time goes by.
Any polishing or paint correction along with surface decontamination should be completed before the application of Repel Pro. If you’re happy with the condition of your finish, make sure the paint or gel coat has been thoroughly washed and decontaminated. Once the surface has been washed with Dawn, clean the panels with Prep Wipe (IPA) to remove any remaining polish, wax, and surface contaminants before apply the coating.
Repel Pro requires washing and upkeep. This upkeep is easier with a coating than it is with wax. The better you maintain the coating the longer it will last. We recommend using Replenish SiO2 maintenance spray every 1-3 months and washing with Pure Clean boat soap. The cost is minimal compared to waxing every three months.
Repel Pro can be applied to most exterior surfaces including gel coat, paint, metal, stainless steel, chrome, plastic, acrylic glass and isinglass.
