Tips & Tricks on OEM Super Poly-Fill (w/ video)

polyfill2One of our top products is a filling/fairing putty called OEM Super Poly-Fill. It’s now being sold through Amazon.com and Ebay.com so we wanted to take a moment and give you some tips from the pros on how to make sure your project benefits from this product.

  1. It uses MEK-P just like Polyester Resin does, so you want to refer to the catalyst chart for mixing ratios:catalyst chart small
  2. Do your surface prep! Make sure you clean the surface, remove any paint or rust and rough the surface with some sandpaper to get the best adhesion.
  3. The product working time is 12-18 minutes, IF catalyzed at 1% and if it’s the magic temperature of 77 degrees in your working area. If it’s hotter out, and we all know it will be, our pros recommend cooling the product down before use to extend the working time.
  4. If you are using it to fill holes, always fill a little high and plan for a slight amount of shrinkage. Once it dries, you can easily smooth it out with a little sandpaper.

Check out a little more about the product from our time on Ship-Shape TV, with its Host, John Greviskis and our own VP, Jeff. They give a few more tips on how to get your project to look professional.

St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show 2014 – St. Petersburg, Florida

We were recently vendors at the St. Petersburg Power & Sailboat Show that was held at the Mahaffey Theater Yacht Basin and Albert Whitted Park in
St. Petersburg, Florida. This show featured power boats and sailboats that can be used on land and in water.  It was a great weekend for a boat show filled with lots of Florida sunshine. Seminars were held daily and there was also a 40,000 sq. ft. tent with all different types of marine gear and equipment. Hope to see you at the St. Petersburg Power & Boat Show next year!
