Detailed Description

WX SpeedCoat

WX SpeedCoat

High Performance & Protection in One Coat

WX SpeedCoat has Wx/Block chemistry which features the latest nanotechnology. It enhances the gloss and longevity of sailplane gel coat finishes. This premium finish protection contains maximum levels of UV protection and anti-static surfacing agents for gel coat finishes. WX SpeedCoat helps maintain a high level of sailplane gel coat integrity by reducing the effects of environmental exposure.

WX SpeedCoat Outshines the Rest

Achieving high level of gloss comes from cleaning and surface micro-sealing. Improvement in visible gloss is a result of nanoscale contouring for a micro-smooth finish. Try the “hand test” - Apply WX SpeedCoat to a small section, then drag your hand across the area. You’ll feel the difference and so will your gel coat.

Gel Coat and the Sun

Sailplane finishes when exposed to the sun are under attack by ultraviolet solar radiation. Gel coats undergo a chemical processes called photoinitiation and photo-oxidation. This process causes chemical unwanted changes in a micro-thin surface layer of gel coat. Photo-oxidation degrades surface molecules. Sunlight and reactive atmospheric conditions yellow and embrittle gel coat. Traditional hard wax or consumer type waxes will polish gel coat. However, their UV protection is limited or non-existent. Wx SpeedCoat’s solution is to provide long lasting active UV protection.






APPLICATION: Shake bottle well to insure complete mixing. Spray WX SpeedCoat onto the surface. Spread into a thin uniform film with a clean non-synthetic rag. Inspect surface from different angles to insure complete coverage. Allow several minutes to dry. WX SpeedCoat is then easily hand polished to a high gloss finish. If a second coating is desired for maximum protection, allow 30-60 minutes between applications, depending on temperature and humidity. Several extra coats on the leading edge reduces future bug impact buildup.

Nanotechnology Improves Performance

Nanoscale particles in WX SpeedCoat improves smoothing and levels microscopic inconsistencies on gel coat surfaces. Leveling of surface topography results in a higher gloss and better sealing of micro-porosity present in all gel coat finishes. Nanoscale formulation improves reflectivity of gel coat surfaces, giving increased gloss, and better retention of active UV suppression.
