The chemists of the Brite Group, manufacturers of the Captain John's Boat Brite Specialty Boat Maintenance Products, have been challenged by David Marlow of Marlow Yachts to develop an alternative to the Acetone/MEK products commonly used in our marine industry to remove mold release wax from the hulls and assorted parts of new boats.
After rigorous field testing conducted by the Brite Group's President, John Coleman and then by David Marlow, this new product is the winner!
Non-toxic, odorless and VOC-free, the Captain John's Boat Brite Marine and Mold Release Wax Stripper is a simple spray and wipe formula in a thixotropic format (able to be sprayed through a simple trigger sprayer, will remain moist for hours and will not drip, even when sprayed on the underside of the hull). The best results were enjoyed when the product was lightly agitated with a scrubee sponge, emulsifying the wax, allowing for removal with a dry terry cloth towel. A quick rinse with a wet towel will remove any residual product. Tests showed that after this quick and harsh chemical-free application the adhesion of resin-based coatings was excellent.
Additional good news is that the Captain John's Boat Brite Marine and Mold Release Wax Stripper has twice the square foot coverage and is significantly less expensive than harsh liquid chemicals.
- Safe for your employees
- Reduced VOC emmission fees
- Twice the coverage for less money
Certainly this product should be a stock item in every boat builders production area.
More Good News! While the Brite Group staff tested the new wax stripper at a prominent marine paint and detailing company in SE Florida it was found that the wax stripper did a great job of de-waxing boats when being prepped for new paint and when tested by the detailing department of the same company, the manager found that when the old, imbedded into the gelcoat wax was removed in advance of a compound/wax job, the freshly detailed yacht had a much richer, deeper, swirl-free finish.
Captain John's Boat Brite Marine and Mold Release Wax Stripper comes in Gallon, 5 Gallon, and 55 Gallon Drums and is in stock, ready to ship.
