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.
