It’s best to use both. Alumetron protects the aluminum against corrosion, oxidation, staining etc. and VS721 gives added protection to the area below the waterline against fouling and the area above the waterline against UV, minor scuffing and soiling.
Make sure that your pontoons are pristine prior to applying Alumetron. If you boat is new, wash the pontoons well with Boat Clean Plus and water and apply after they are dry. If it’s an older boat clean and restore the pontoons with Algex, Alumabrite and Alumabuff as required.
