Product Details

Owatrol Gelcoat Restorer returns dull, faded fiberglass to its original color, luster, and shine. Conventional waxes and polishes sit on the surface and dry out quickly. Unlike expensive polishes, Gelcoat Color Restorer is an oil that penetrates deeply into the fiberglass surface to re-wet the original pigment. It then dries to a durable, long lasting flexible finish.

Owatrol Gelcoat Restorer is easy to apply and simple to maintain.

Note: Not to be used on white gelcoat.

Such a simple fix!
By Cliffy from Montana

I tried buffing with abrasives and waxes. This product replaces the original oils which have dried out. And you simply apply with a rag and a few minutes later wipe away excess. In my case a second coat only gave 5% more color. It really is so easy and amazing!

After 5 minutes
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Restored 36 year old paint
By DK from Provo, Utah

I looked hi and low for something that would give life back to the paint on a 1984 Bronco II. I used rubbing compound on it, which helped, but the paint was dried out. I got the best results with the Gelcoat Restorer by putting some on a very small pad and applying a thin coat on a fender, then a door, then the hood etc. I actually didn't try to wipe off the excess, since I put so little on to start with. The results were amazing. The paint regained its true deep color and had nice gloss. It looks like it was painted yesterday.

1984 paint revived by Gelcoat Restorer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Did more harm than good
By Bill from Sandwich

Used this product based on the great reviews on gel coat of an RV. The surface was clean - no oxidation, dry and clean. Owatrol left a hazy mess when it dried - looks terrible!

A great product!
By "D" from Detoit area

Brings back the color of faded gelcoat. Wipe it on, let it set for five minutes, wipe off gently then come back and buff gentlely. The original color will pop!
