Due to the current situation we are all in, the Crick Boat Show has now been postponed and so Owatrol UK will no longer be able to exhibit. So, we thought we would highlight our top 10 marine care products that we would have brought along with us to showcase to show you all!
Our marine care range has a wide variety of products. Whether you want to revive your gelcoat, restore your wood or clean your sails there is something for everyone!
1. Gelcoat and Surface Restorer (Marine Polytrol)
Owatrol Gelcoat and Surface Restorer (Marine Polytrol) is a highly saturating oil that penetrates deep into gelcoats and other surfaces to re-wet the pigments and restore the original colour and shine.
After application, it dries to a tough and long-lasting flexible finish, therefore, eliminating the need for expensive and time-consuming waxes and polishes which sit on the surface and dry out quickly.
It is quick and easy to apply by using a cloth or soft brush and is ready to wipe off in as little as 10 minutes! Use on plastics, gelcoats, GRP (fibreglass), metal, painted or varnished surfaces, stone, tiles, bricks, metals and more!
2. Deks Olje D1
Owatrol Deks Olje D1 is a highly saturating wood oil that penetrates into the wood to protect from within. It drives out any moisture or air within the wood and fills the pores to replace lost oils. This unique formula enriches and stabilises the wood providing long-lasting protection.
Deks Olje D1 can be used on interior or exterior timber (including below the waterline) and on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. It gives a clear matt finish that enhances the wood’s natural beauty and once dry, there will be no film left on the surface. This means that there will be no peeling, flaking or cracking.
Deks Olje D1 is especially good for use on dense, oily and difficult to impregnate woods.
If you want a high gloss finish, you can then use Dek Olje D2 as a topcoat.
3. Deks Olje D2
Owatrol Deks Olje D2 is a tough, flexible, high gloss finish that enhances the natural beauty of both interior and exterior wood. Once dry, the highly flexible finish moves with the wood to prevent peeling and flaking. It is easy to apply and maintain and the more coats you apply, the glossier the finish will be.
Before application of Deks Olje D2, you must first prime the wood with Deks Olje D1. This is because the wood fibres need free of air and moisture and instead filled with oil so that D2 can create a strong adhesion, so that water unable to get underneath.
Deks Olje D2 can be used for all applications above the waterline, however, as it has a high gloss finish, it is not suitable for use on surfaces that will be walked on as it would be very slippery.
4. Transyl Oil
