It quickly and easily removes stubborn dirt, exhaust soot, grime, stains, chalking and scuffs that other cleaners can’t touch. Use dedicated Aurora system matched products to keep your inflatable boats, zodiac boats, walker bay, RIB’s or rigid inflatable boats and inflatable dingies looking their best and reducing maintenance. Look at this poor rigid inflatable boat that’s been neglected for over 3 years. It’s dirty, gummy and stained with diesel. Inflatable Bottom Spray got the algae off In no time. Next, Speed Clean boat cleaner got the Yuck off. Quickly and easily. Poly Guard inflatable boat protective coating made the tubes shine better than new. Repelin clear polymer fouling release coating provides invisible protection against marine fouling. It’s a green alternative to antifouling paint.
Keeping your new RIB or Inflatable Boat clean and protected against environmental damage can easily double the useful life of your boat, keep it looking like the day you bought it, increase your pride of ownership and bring a much higher return when it comes time to trade up or sell.
Your boat will be expected to live and survive in the Marine Environment; the toughest environment on the planet. It will be under constant attack from dirt, grime, UV, infrared, suntan lotion, marine growth, bacteria, bird and spider droppings, scuffs, stains, ozone and more. A simple and regular maintenance regime can easily defeat these ravages, but you need the right specialty products and procedure to do the job. Failure to keep your boat clean and protected will result in it looking old and tired before its time, may void your warranty and is sure to bring additional problems that can be costly to repair.
Using the right products to care for your boat is important. Household, automotive and industrial products can often cause more harm than good and should not be used. Aurora Boat Care Products are specially formulated for optimum care and maintenance of RIB and Inflatable boats. They’re endorsed, recommended and used by the top boat manufacturers in the world. These products are safe to use on Hypalon, PVC, Polyurethane, Rubber, Fiberglass and Aluminum.
NOTE: Detailed instructions for use and application of all products are on the product labels and on www.AuroraMarine.com
This is the easiest and best time to protect your boat. Within a few months in the marine environment, an unprotected boat can become soiled, stained, fouled and begin to degrade, requiring restoration before it can be properly protected.
When the special fabric for your tube and inflatable floor was manufactured, lubricants and other chemicals were used and they remain on the surface of the fabric after the boat was manufactured. It’s important to strip them away before applying the UV protector otherwise poor adhesion and failure of the protector can result. Even though your boat is new and appears clean, scrub it well with SPEED CLEAN™ and a MARINE POWER MITT™ to remove these pollutants, rinse well and dry. When the tube and fabric floor is dry, apply 2 coats of POLY GUARD™. These products may also be used to protect rub rails and other rubber fitments.
If the boat is to remain in the water for more than 2 days at a time, apply REPELIN™ fouling release coating to all underwater fabric surfaces to reduce the attachment of marine fouling and make cleanup easier. REPELIN™ can also improve performance and reduce fuel consumption. These products are effective for use in salt as well as fresh water.
If your RIB is to remain in the water for more than 2 days at a time, protect the gel coat with REPELIN™ fouling release coating. In addition to reducing the attachment of marine fouling it will keep the bottom cleaner, eliminate salt attachment, improve performance and reduce fuel consumption. Gel coat is porous and REPELIN™ will seal the pores to prevent osmosis blisters.
New gel coat is coated with a mold release agent which can impair proper bonding of long lasting protective coatings. To ensure proper attachment of REPELIN™, the hull must be scrubbed with SPEED CLEAN™ and a MARINE POWER MITT™ to remove any pollutants, prior to application.
If your RIB is to remain in the water for more than 2 days at a time, protect the painted bottom with REPELIN™ fouling release coating. In addition to reducing the attachment of marine fouling it will keep the bottom cleaner, eliminate salt attachment, improve performance and reduce fuel consumption. Wash the surface first with INFLATABLE BOAT CLEANER™ to remove any pollutants and then apply 2 coats of REPELIN™. If the hull is raw aluminum, after washing as above, coat it first with ALUMETRON™ prior to applying REPELIN™.
The deck or floor surfaces of RIB’s either have a textured pattern or sand is imbedded in the gel coat, or paint, in order to provide traction and reduce slipping, especially when wet. Protecting them with wax or polish is not recommended as it can make them dangerously slippery. Left unprotected, the decks are susceptible to UV damage, soiling, staining and excessive scrubbing to keep them clean. SURE STEP™ is a pressure sensitive sealer and UV protective polish that utilizes Adaptive Reflex technology. It seals the surface, protects the New Boat shine and makes the decks easy to maintain and keep clean. When you step on the deck, your weight creates pressure which gives you grip. When you take your foot off, releasing the pressure, they become smooth and slippery again making dirt attachment difficult. When the decks are wet, the traction increases even more.
Scrub the non-skid deck with SPEED CLEAN™ and a scrub brush and the smooth parts with a MARINE POWER MITT™. Rinse well and dry. Apply 2 coats of SURE STEP™ and buff to a beautiful shine with a SURE STEP BUFFING WHEEL™ on a portable drill.
Once your boat is properly protected, maintenance usually consists of keeping it clean by rinsing with clear water and wiping dry from time to time but if stuff happens, we’ve got you covered. If your boat gets soiled from greasy atmospheric fall out, diesel soot, scum line, or other nasties, wet it with water, spray on some free rinsing, biodegradable INFLATABLE BOAT CLEANER™, wash away the grime with a MARINE POWER MITT™ and wipe dry with a chamois or microfiber cloth.
Even though your boat bottom is protected with REPELIN™, if it sits in the water for more than a few days you may see slime forming on the bottom. Simply wipe off the slime and the bottom will stay clean for months. If the boat sits in the water for long periods of time, without maintenance, marine growth may attach. Soft growth such as slime and algae can be removed with INFLATABLE BOTTOM SPRAY™. Hard growth, such as barnacles or zebra or quagga mussels can be removed with FOUL OFF™. Bottom cleaners can remove REPELIN™ and POLY GUARD™. After removing the growth, scrub with SPEED CLEAN™ and re-apply POLY GUARD™ and REPELIN™.
POLY GUARD™, REPELIN™ and SURE STEP™ have a life of 6 to 8 months in continental climates and 3 to 4 months in tropical climates. At the end of each period, scrub all surfaces with SPEED CLEAN™ and re-apply the protectors. Regular use of these products can extend useful life of your new RIB or Inflatable Boat, make maintenance easier and add value and pride of ownership to your boat.
Harsh cleaners like bleach, toluene, acetone, etc. can harm the fabric by making it sticky, porous or yellow and should be considered cleaners of last resort as you may destroy your boat.
Your best bet is to try using Aurora Speed Clean with Hypexine. Hypexine is a leaching agent that will not damage the fabric. I would suggest rubbing the Speed Clean into the stained spots with a sponge or scrub brush and let it sit until it dries. Add more Speed Clean and give it a good scrub. You may wish to clean the rest of the boat at the same time. The next step is to expose the boat to sunlight. Over time it will bleach the stain out. This may take weeks or even months, but it won’t damage the boat.
During the sun bleach period, do not put any protection on the tubes and do not cover it. You can clean it periodically with Speed Clean. When the stain has faded to your satisfaction, apply 2 coats of Poly Guard to protect the fabric. Poly Guard will also protect the substrate against future staining from mold or mildew.
I would not recommend painting the inflatable. I have yet to see good results from painting PVC or Hypalon. The boat looks like it was painted and often will peel and flake. Not pretty.
Before you can put anything on your inflatable, you have to make sure that it is clean, stain free and the surface is not oxidized.
If you have any fouling on the bottom, spray it with Inflatable Bottom Spray. Let it sit for about 20 minutes and that should get the fouling off. Next, use Speed Clean and a Marine Power Mitt, sponge or scrub brush to get the boat clean and deoxidized. This should get any stains out and bring up the original color. If you boat is a RIB, you can also use the Speed Clean on the hull and for cleaning the non-skid floor.
When your boat is as clean and bright as you can get it, apply 2 coats of Poly Guard to the tubes. If the boat is going to spend any amount of time in the water, apply 2 coats of Repelin below the waterline. You can use this on the tubes, rigid hull and the lower leg of you outboard. (Do not apply to the prop as it will cause it to slip too much). It will keep marine growth off and make it easier to clean. If yours is a RIB, apply 2 coats of Sure Step to the non-skid floor.
You’ll be amazed at how well these products restore your boat and make it easier to keep clean. Achilles made a good boat. When you get through, you might decide that it’s a keeper. I would even suggest that you take some before and after photos, otherwise no one will believe you.
The product you want to clean up the diesel soot from your hypalon dinghy the first time is Speed Clean. It will deep clean and deoxidize the fabric and if your dinghy is a RIB, can also be used to clean and polish the fiberglass hull, inside and out. It will also remove scuff marks, other dirt and superficial stains. It’s specially made for tough cleaning and restoration of all inflatable surfaces. To make cleaning easier and faster use a Marine Power Mitt with the Speed Clean.
Once you have it cleaned apply two coats of Poly Guard to the tube to seal and protect the fabric. The protective coating is not greasy or oily and will help to reduce the attachment of diesel soot, dirt and scuff marks and make the boat easier to clean. It will also help protect the fabric against chalking and fading from the sun. It’s easy to apply and two coats will last for months, even in the Florida sun.
I recommend that you protect the fiberglass hull, if your boat is a RIB, and bottom of the tubes with Repelin. Repelin is a clear, biocide free, anti-fouling coat that seals the pores in the fiberglass, prevents attachment of marine growth when the boat is in the water and gives the bottom of the boat an extra layer of protection against the attachment of diesel soot. You will find that the bottom will be much easier to keep clean. Even salt won’t stick to it and can easily be rinsed off.
After the boat is protected, ongoing maintenance will be simplified. Diesel soot is very tenacious and tends to smear around, but it won’t penetrate the Repelin and Poly Guard so it can be easily removed. The procedure is to rinse the boat with water, spray a bit of Boat Clean Plus on it, give it a quick wash with a sponge and rinse it clean. Boat Clean Plus is a water activated, environment safe, cleaner and degreaser that quickly penetrates and lifts the greasy diesel soot as well as other dirt and soil, making it easy to rinse clean. Al though it’s a very tough cleaner, it’s gentle on all marine surfaces. When diluted with water this way, it won’t remove the Repelin or Poly Guard.
