Poliglow Products

Hi Everyone
We have a 2008 Damon Outlaw 37ft. We want to keep the unit in good shape so I have been looking at products to use. This one is in the Highways mag.
Has anyone have any comment on this product or recommend another?
I had a price of $500.00 to have a company called Perma-Shine wax the unit. They say it needs it every year.
I do not mind doing it myself if I can apply a product that is easy to use without buffing. I do have decals on the unit that I do not want to damage.
Poliglow looks like it was made for boats so if anyone has info on personal experience or better products it would be a huge help.

Thanks Pitbull

Polyglow is made for boats whose gellcoat is in bad shape. It's made for fiberglass with a gellcoat finish. I use it on my motorhome because it's 14 years old and the finish is in bad shape. I makes it look new again. I would not recommend it for your 3 year old unit. Once you start using it unless you keep your unit indoors you will have to treat it every year, forever. My suggesgtion to you is to worry about it less and enjoy it more.

Happy trails, Peppi

PS, It takes a lot of prep before use and from 4 to 6 coats to get a proper finish, not real hard just very time consuming.

I have used Poliglo on a boat. It works! However it is a stop gap product, it will not replace a new paint job but it will put a shine on one that no longer shines cheaper than you can by repainting. It is a process that takes some time and elbow grease to complete and you will need to do it again and again. Well worth the effort if you do not have the budget to do it right with paint!

Anthing EXCEPT paint will require renewing at fairly frequent intervals; compounding and waxing might have to be done several times a year if your underlying fiberglass is dull and you want to have a shiny finish.

Poliglow (and its cousin Red Max Pro #3) need refreshing only once a year with a single wipe-on coat. Never any rubbing or buffing.

A $15 gallon of Red Max Pro versus a $15,000 paint job? Call me a cheapskate but...

Just finished putting a coat of ZEP on both my caps. Looks good and will last about a year. ZEP is another poly product sold by Home Depot. Same as RED MAX. Used this on my old boat for years. Works well and NO BUFF! I like that! Must be very clean and very dry for application.

The first time that you apply Poliglow you have to put on 5 coats. The prep is very important. Go to their web site to learn more.
