Ceramic boat sealant - protection for tides

You have saved for your boat for a long time. That is why you care a lot about good maintenance. Water, algae, but also mussel infestation, temperature fluctuations and bird droppings can really get to the collar of the material and cause serious damage in the long term. You can prevent this with a suitable coating.

You save yourself the need for costly care and protect the sensitive surface in the long term. The solution of choice is a strong ceramic boat sealant. We supply such a sealant with a strong Nanoflex Dura sealant.

This sealant is high quality and durable. It has its origins in aircraft construction and has long been convincing there with a number of good properties. This technique is now also being used more and more frequently for watercraft. Sailing ships, motorboats and yachts are sustainably protected with such a finish.

 

The advantages are obvious. Such a coating is environmentally friendly in the long term, can be applied to different types of surfaces and requires little maintenance. In the long run it is cheaper than other solutions because it lasts longer. For boat care, the new surface treatment is the state-of-the-art solution. It is technically state-of-the-art and clearly superior to other methods. 

Advantages of ceramic sealant

The ceramic boat sealant offers lasting protection and convinces with its long durability. It should be applied by a professional so that it really does what it promises and you can enjoy it for a long time. It can be used indoors and outdoors on various types of surfaces. The appearance of the material is not affected, as this surface technique is invisible. The transparent coating has similar good properties as bullet-proof glass. The original colour of the material remains unchanged. The material only gets a stronger gloss.

Advantages for interior design

Nanoflex Dura VF sealant can be applied to a wide variety of areas on and in the boat, e.g. not only for painted surfaces, but also for wood and metal in the interior of your boat. It is even suitable for some types of textiles. So you can also use it to treat the interior of your boat like seat covers. In this way your high-quality seating furniture in your watercraft is better protected against dust. Dust is easier to remove from the upholstery. This technique is only less suitable for polyethylene and polypropylene.


Cleaning the interior of your boat is child's play. Dust does not adhere to the surface as quickly. Of course, you cannot prevent dust, but it is easier to remove. This is especially beneficial when you are treating your boat to a spring treatment and getting it fit again for the coming season. You save work when cleaning.
 

Perfect protection for outside with the boat sealant

With the long term protection boat you can spend more time on the water, because you save yourself a lot of work in maintenance. Even older boats can shine again with a new shine. The weathered paint surface is sanded down before the new boat sealant is applied. Older boats look like new again. The colours come into their own more intensely, for example.

This surface treatment offers a longer value retention. This is not only important so that you can enjoy your motor boat or yacht for a long time. If you would like to sell your watercraft at some point in the future, it will look better. You can achieve a higher sales price, for example, by using a surface treatment. With the high-quality top coating for your boat you will leave a lasting impression on other boat owners and your friends. Your motorboat or yacht will always look well maintained and will not get dirty so quickly.

For outdoor use, long-term protection has some decisive advantages

  1. Well-groomed appearance
  2. Beautiful shine
  3. Brings the colour to shine
  4. Protects against dirt
  5. Protects against scratches
  6. Offers corrosion protection as it is air and water resistant
  7. Protects against a wide range of environmental influences
  8. Protects against UV light
  9. Low maintenance
  10. Environmentally Friendly
  11. Less fuel consumption
  12. Several years durable

One convincing argument is protection against UV light. This is noticeable in summer when the sun shines intensively. The boat skin could quickly become brittle and fade without this long-term coating. This is prevented with the innovative surface technology of Nanoflex Dura HD. The ceramic-based surface coating is environmentally friendly in several ways: You need less care products, which benefits the water and the animals living in it. Resources are conserved, as the bullet-proof glass-like coating lasts for many years. Not to forget the lower friction due to less infestation which allows higher speeds and reduces fuel consumption. Algae, mussels, aggressive bird droppings and other influences have no chance on the hull. If you spend a lot of time at sea, salt water could seriously damage the paintwork. Show such influences the red card. The boat sealant is heat and cold resistant. It protects better against scratche

The comparison: Less efficient solutions for protection and care

For boats there are other possibilities for surface protection and care. However, they are less efficient and sustainable.

Wax

Wax is available colourless and as colour wax in different colours. It is suitable for use above and under water. Wax is also available with UV protection, weathering protection and anti-slip formula. However, it does not last as long. The treatment must be repeated frequently. In the long run this can be expensive. Wax is not so corrosion resistant. Especially sea water can quickly damage the wax layer. Algae and mussels can destroy the wax layer within a short time. The hull is then exposed to seawater and other influences without protection. Wax also requires more intensive care. As wax involves quite a lot of effort in application, it is only suitable for smaller boats.

 

Surface sealing and waterproofing

Various products are available for surface sealing and waterproofing. Frequently one speaks of nano sealing. These products can protect against various influences, but they are not as robust as ceramic boat sealants. They are transparent and thin, but they are sensitive to scratches. Mussels, but also algae, seawater and bird droppings can quickly destroy such thin coatings. These variants must be renewed frequently and are therefore not sustainable. In the long run they can become expensive.

 

Polishing

A common form of boat care is polishing. Before applying the polish, the boat must be thoroughly cleaned. Damaged areas in the paintwork should be repaired beforehand. A matt or worn surface must be sanded down. You can apply the polish with a machine or by hand. You must wait until streaks appear. Only then can you go to the actual polishing and polish the hull by hand or machine. This is particularly time-consuming on larger boats and does not last as long as the ceramic-based long-term protection boat.

You must be careful when polishing. Especially during fast rotation with the machine, heat can build up, which can cause damage. For a longer protective function, you must seal the surface afterwards. You will need manual skill if you want to do the polishing yourself. Polishing and sealing require more maintenance. They are not as resistant to damaging influences and not as dirt-repellent as the ceramic boat sealant.

 

Various common care sets

Various care products are available for boat care. Often they are offered in sets, as this is cheaper. Often these sets contain detergents, cleaning cloths, polishing bonnets for the polishing machine, various polishes and wax. The wax is often available as spray wax. The suppliers advertise these care products with easy application, long durability and reasonable prices. These care sets are not suitable for all surfaces and do not always contain what you actually need for your boat. The use of these products requires a lot of effort.

As you have to repeat the cleaning and maintenance often - sometimes even several times within a season - this can be expensive. Such care sets are not environmentally friendly. For cleaning, you can buy boat shampoo, some of which is available in a set with a polishing glove. Such boat shampoos may contain aggressive cleaners. They damage the paint or coating as well as the environment.

 It is clearly superior to the other care options because it is sustainable and durable. It is easy to maintain and protects the environment. The investment in such a surface treatment pays off, because you can enjoy it for a long time and save a lot of time and money for maintenance.

The ceramic boat sealant Easy to clean

Inside and outside, the ceramic coating such as Nanoflex Dura allows easy cleaning. It is easy to use. In order to ensure that everything is even and that even hard-to-reach areas of your boat are covered, you should have the surface coating applied by a specialist.

Nanoflex Dura supplies sealants that convince. Simply order here here.

You save time and do not have to deal with time-consuming work such as thoroughly cleaning or sanding down your boat before applying the protection. Inside and outside you can clean without chemicals. Your wallet and the environment will thank you for this.

Easy cleaning from the inside

For cleaning from the inside, a microfibre cloth is sufficient to wipe the dust off the furniture. Since upholstery can also be sealed, you save yourself the trouble of vacuuming. You only need to use a hoover from time to time and you can wipe off dirt from the upholstery with a microfibre cloth and a little water. Dust does not settle so quickly because the surface is dust-repellent. Since you have to invest less time in cleaning, you can enjoy the beautiful hours on the water longer.
The boat sealant is absolutely non-toxic when dry and even has a certificate for food approval. Therefore, it is perfectly suitable for worktops in the kitchen area. Splashes and grease residues can be quickly removed. Should the work area become a little more stubbornly soiled, you can use some warm water and mild detergent to remove the dirt. With a microfibre cloth you can polish to

Easy to clean outdoors

The advantages of the ceramic-based boat sealant become apparent when cleaning outdoors. Bioshampoo into the water. This will not harm the sealant or the animals and plants in the water.

An important aspect that will benefit you when cleaning is the lotus effect. Dirt particles, rainwater and other impurities can roll off. You need to clean your motorboat or yacht less often.

As the coating is also suitable for glass from the inside and outside, you will have to clean the windows of your boat less often. Even bird droppings are easier to remove.

Less cleaning thanks to lotus effect

An outstanding characteristic of boat sealing is the lotus effect. It saves you a lot of work when cleaning. You don't have to rub and polish for hours because the dirt doesn't stick so quickly. You will have to reach for a bucket of water and a cleaning cloth much less often and will not have to polish for a long time. The lotus effect is perfect for boats. It is a self-cleaning effect. Water drops roll off and take dirt particles with them. Our smart bionics have copied this effect from the lotus plant. Dust, bird droppings, pollen and other dirt do not bother the surface as much.

The technique of ceramic coating

The ceramic surface coating can also be used for other objects. It has its origin in aircraft construction and is used for aeroplanes and helicopters, but it is also suitable for cars and motorhomes.

As this surface treatment is also suitable for large scale, it is also used for large ships. The boat sealant is perfect for surfaces that are exposed to strong mechanical stress for example by water at high speed, as well as aggressive substances such as seawater, algae, mussel adhesion and bird droppings.

The coating is thin and yet has similarly robust properties to bullet-proof glass. The appearance is not changed. Your boat will only get a slightly stronger shine. Despite its hardness, the long-term protection boat is characterized by high elasticity. Depending on the strain on your boat, the surface protection can last up to 10 years, while a nano sealant only lasts for about six month

 

The technical properties of ceramic boat sealant

The ceramic-based boat sealant is a strong improvement on the nano sealant. A nano sealing has a much shorter durability and hardly differs in price from the higher quality version. Since it has to be renewed frequently, it is even more expensive in the end.
The nano sealing forms a three-dimensional crystal lattice and has surface tension. Due to these properties, water can bead up and take dirt particles with it. The ceramic surface coating bonds with the paint on a molecular basis. The surface coating and the lacquer are joined together in an abrasion-resistant manner. This results in a smooth and dirt-repellent surface.

 

How the ceramic surface treatment is done on the boat

Before the surface coating is applied, your boat must be spotless. At this opportunity, damaged areas in the paint can be repaired. The surface sealant is applied and worked in the second step. As it bonds with the lacquer surface, a wafer-thin butextremely stable protective layer is created with glass-like properties. In this surface coating, there is a chemical bond with the lacquer. The coating also bonds with other surfaces such as wood, metal or glass. This property makes it so durable. Because it is less stressed in the interior of your boat than on the outside, the durability inside is even longer.

 

The technique of polysilazanisation

The chemical reaction that the coating undergoes with the surface material is called polysilazanisation . Polysilazanes, which have a silicon-carbon and nitrogen - or oxygen - backbone, can bond to most surface materials by a cold chemical reaction. Since the material is protected, this technique can be used without any problems for sensitive surfaces, such as boat hulls. The coating technology was developed for space travel, aircraft construction and vehicle treatment, but its robustness also makes it perfectly suitable for boats. It protects against the special influences above and under water. This technology is also used where things get tough and where a variety of harmful influences affect the hulls of ships: In the navy. Naval ships are permanently protected, for example.

This technique has been developed and tested in extensive studies and test procedures. It has taken about 10 years to make it what it is today.

 

Conclusion: A long-term protection that will inspire you!

The boat sealant on ceramic basis is suitable for numerous surface materials and has its origin in aircraft construction. It has proven its worth in aircraft, cars and motorhomes and is now used by many boat owners. A special feature is the long-term protection of the boat. The surface coating can be applied inside and outside the boat. It is suitable for metal, paint, wood, glass and even for some textiles. The long-term protection is guaranteed by the fact that the surface coating enters into a chemical reaction with the surface material and bonds permanently. Depending on the strain on your boat, it can last up to 10 years. Unlike a nano sealant, this sealant does not have to be renewed again and again. Due to its excellent technical properties, it is far ahead of other methods for surface treatment and maintenance. Wax, nano coating and polishes do not last long and ultimately become much more expensive.

So: Save time and money. Do something good for your motorboat, your yacht and the environment and convince yourself of the high-quality ceramic surface coating. Enjoy your time on the water and spend less time cleaning and maintaining your boat. Not only will your boat shine in new splendour, but you will also shine with other boat owners
