This is not to debate/change/convince anyone's opinion of poliglow...
However this is to answer your question about my experience with poliglow.
Facts as I have experienced them over last approx. 8-10 years...based on using the product.
Reason (right or wrong) for using product ...long time owner same vessel, 23 years..used to use good wax, very happy with results except as years past
found that I might be, little by little, cutting away the gel coat every time had to compound boat. not good.
With poli glow...1... you must apply it over a clean surface..comes with poli prep,
this removes dirt which would otherwise be sealed under.
This is most important step... takes me 2-3 hrs on 30' boat.(I usually dilute poli prep slighty less than recommeded..goes faster, less work.)
Applying poli glow is the easy part...put it on the applicator supplied and go...
Goes on fast and dries in about 90 seconds ...need to apply 5-6 coats but it really goes on fast with very little effort. Time about 2 hours..and that includes
everyone stopping by complimenting my new looking 23 year old finish.
points of info...
You can surely do the job in 1 day.
if your hull
is oxided, poli glow will just make it shiny oxidation...test small area.
I have applied it, after heavy oxidation removal
, to a boot stripe I thought would have to be painted... with very good results.
be careful when 1st applying... try to feather edges avoid bubbles and heavy
excess edges..won't look like much until 2nd 3rd coat.
poli glow recommeds touch ups mid season, I rarely do...but it will wear
at lower bow area after 500-1000+ mile passage
I choose to remove and apply new each year, not necessary but find cleaner,
easier that way....and I don't cut into my gel coat every year.
if you need to do something fast for a year you won't go wrong.
if you hate it...take the poli prep and remove it in a few hours, if
nothing else you will have nice clean surface.
search forum...poli glow...it has been discussed, it's what makes this
if you do use it, come back and post results... for better or worse.
and just in case anyone was wondering I don't have any realationship
with product, except I pay my money
and use it.
