Guaranteeing a Proper Finish
Ensuring a good, long-lasting boat refinish means taking steps to remove all the old, loose paint so you have a solid base for the new paint. You need to prep your fiberglass or other material by blasting away all the old paint with an abrasive blaster and the right media. Media that is too soft won’t adequately remove the old paint, while media that is too hard can damage and warp your boat or even create holes.
Here at Finishing Systems, we have the equipment and media you need to make quick work of your boat-refinishing project. We have experience helping businesses and sailboat and powerboat owners choose the right equipment and blasting media for their refinishing needs.
If you’re wondering how to refinish a fiberglass boat, make note of the following steps:
- Scrape off all loose flaking paint
- Remove the remaining paint with an abrasive blaster
- Sand the entire surface to be painted
- Clean the surface with a marine solvent
- Apply paint according to instructions
The abrasive blasting step is critical to get a smooth, attractive, long-lasting finish. Failure to remove the old, flaking paint can cause adhesion issues with the new paint and allow blisters and cracks to quickly form in the new paint. Choose our top-quality abrasive blasting machines that give you all the control and precision you need to carefully remove old paint without damaging the hull of your boat.
