Interlux Watertite YAV135 is an excellent fairing compound due to its unique two-phase cure, which gives a long easy-to-sand window. Watertite can be applied to a thickness of 3/4" without sagging and its superior spreadability makes it an ideal glazing compound for filling small nicks and scratches.
What is Gelcoat Blistering?
Osmosis is caused by a chemical reaction between water and unreacted substances remaining in the manufactured hull. Water breaches the exterior gelcoat and reacts with the chemical components creating acidic substances. These substances create pressure behind the gelcoat which causes blisters and eventually cracking. Once the gelcoat is breached in this manner, the underlying laminate is capable of absorbing water like a sponge.
Use the Interlux Interprotect system to treat and help prevent this insidious problem.
