Will additional coatings of Poly Guard give my inflatable better protection?


Stanley Galper asked:

Will extra coatings of Polyguard on my Hypalon inflatable give better protection than the recommended two coatings?

You’re better off applying Poly Guard more often than to apply it thicker. Inflatable boats and the tube on RIB’s flex a lot and thinner coats flex more easily than thicker ones. Over time, the Poly Guard will wear and lose its UV protection. Re-application every 3 to 6 months is a much better idea.

Thanks for your question.
