Which August Race product to use and what is it for
Boat Was Pro
This is the ultimate boat cleaner! Boat Wash Pro provides protection and shine while leaving a deep glossy finish. This product is able to remove dirt and scale from most boat materials and is PH neutral.
Liquid RIB – RIB & INFLATABLE CLEANER
Liquid RIB is able to clean both hypalon and PVC RIB floats to an unparalleled standard, often with an “as new” finish, bringing your RIB back to life. Liquid RIB gives truly amazing results by gently working deep into the surface to remove salt deposits, dirt and oxidation. We recommend using August Race LR Sealer coat to protect your dinghy or RIB after treating it with Liquid RIB.
LR Sealer Coat
August Race LR Sealer Coat is a semi-permanent crosslinking polymer coating formulated to prevent water spots on inflatable RIB floats and protect against UV and bird pollution. LR Sealer coat gives a silky finish to floats and can even be used on fabric impression fabrics. It is environmentally friendly and 100% biodegradable. In combination with Liquid RIB, it is sufficient to use this per boating season.
Due to its high strength we recommend to re-polish following treatment using AR Smooth Opacity Polish this also helps to protect against future stains.
Smooth Opacity UV – Protective UV Wax
August Race Smooth Opacity Polish is a cleaning wax especially for a deep treatment of the gelcoat your RIB. The deep-treating fluid applied UV wax polish with unrivalled ease-of-use it restores gloss to dull surfaces and helps to protect against UV rays.
August Race Vinyl Bright restores tired looking vinyl upholstery in one quick step and often leaves them as good as new. Super easy to use.
Liquid RIB UV
Liquid Rib UV is a conditioning / protective UV treatment for older or (UV) damaged PVC or Hypalon tubes. This provides long-lasting protection against both salt and UV damage. To be applied extremely sparingly Liquid Rib UV will quickly absorb into the tube fabric to give great results that can last up to 1 year. Liquid Rib UV is an annual/bi-annual treatment. We recommend using Liquid Rib to clean and revitalize the tubes before using Liquid Rib UV for conditioning and protection. And for the best results, apply LR Sealer Coat afterwards.
August Race Spot Off low-foaming mould spot remover for use on a variety of surfaces including inflatable boat (RIB) tubes, vinyl upholstery and paint. Less aggressive than conventional bleaching agents, Spot Off gives amazing results fast.
