Should I use Alumabrite CBX or Alumabuff to brighten my pontoons?


Lance Morgan asked:

I would like to clean my pontoon of water marks and oxidation. I am confused if I should use Alumabuff or Alumabrite CBX? Please advise.

Alumabrite CBX will remove brown or green stains. If you have streaks or etching from acid cleaning or road salt during transportation then you must use Alumabuff to get the pontoons clean and bright.

Since you’re going to all the trouble to get your pontoons looking new again, I suggest that you protect the finish with Alumetron and apply VS721 Bottom Coat. Alumetron can keep your pontoons shiny for up to 10 years and comes with a 5 year warranty. VS721 will help prevent attachment of marine growth below the waterline and Zebra Mussels can’t stick to it. Many pontoon boat owners are also coating the top of their pontoons with VS721 to prevent dirt, bird droppings and other pollutants from sticking. The difference is quite remarkable and you won’t have to repeat the cleaning and polishing next year or for the next 5 to 10 years.

Thanks for your question.
