Iosso Brings New Life to Gelcoated Fiberglass
The traditional way to restore gelcoat is a three-step process requiring plenty of time and a lot of product and elbow grease. Iosso Fiberglass Reconditioner is an easy-to-use, one-step product that quickly brings new life to chalky, oxidized powerboats, sailboats, canoes and kayaks. It brings back the deep, original color and adds a high gloss shine without waxing.
Iosso Fiberglass Reconditioner provides long-lasting protection for up to six months. It does not contain silicone, so there is never an issue of refinishing. Unlike some products, it does not stop with gelcoat. It removes minor scratches, waterline scum and unsightly surface rust. For trailed boats, it’s perfect for getting rid of vehicle exhaust stains, oil and road tar.
It’s easy to use Iosso Fiberglass Reconditioner. In an overlapping pattern, it’s applied with a brush or soft cloth in 2’ to 3’ sections. Then, it’s worked into the surface until the haze is gone; an electric polisher or buffer speeds-up the process. A video is at bit.ly/2y1i0m8.
Iosso Fiberglass Reconditioner is exceptionally effective. A one-pound jar cleans a 30’ boat from the waterline to the deck. It’s also available in five-pound and five-gallon containers, making it ideal for professional detailers who need to bring a surface from old and tired to showroom quality in the shortest amount of time. 1 lb. costs $23; 5 lbs. is $85.45; 5 gallons is $730.
