PaiBoat Nauticlean - This is a polishing cleaner, specially created for yacht and boat washing. It easily removes stains caused by natural elements and exhaust gas, insects, grease and bird droppings. Unlike many other boat cleaners on the market, Nauticlean is a non-acid formula, which is not aggressive for the gelcoat and does not strip sealant or wax protection (hull). Rather, through its innovative components it is able to shine the surface and leave a lasting protection and anti-static waterproof film, which prevent dirt accumulation. It generates a minimum quantity of foam and it may even be used with seawater (rinse with clean water). Thanks to the total absence of solvents, phosphates and colourants, it is a biocompatible product.


Driven Wash Concentrate safely cleans all automotive and marine finishes without stripping polish or wax. Activated by water, this unique combination of cleaning agents foams away surface contaminants while brightening and nourishing the finish with a full spectrum of protective polymers. Completely biodegradable and pH balanced.


Compound (Correct)

Remove moderate-heavy defects and imperfections; restore colour and surface gloss.


PaiBoat Extra Cut - This is a super cutting compound designed to be easily used by hand to remove heavy oxidations, bad scratches and severe chalking from boats. It assures both an excellent cutting action and a very good final gloss, restoring the surface to its original condition. Its balanced formulation allows for a quick and efficient application as well as making it extremely fast and simple to remove. It can also be applied by machine polisher with optimal results.


PaiBoat Just 1 - Cutting polishing liquid compound 2 in 1, which combines an excellent restoring action with a supreme gloss finish. It removes either medium oxidation, marks and yellowing or medium-fine sand scratches (P1000-P1500, according to the hardness of treated resins), very fast and well, without overheating the surface. Just 1 is the quickest and most effective way to restore the deep shine of the surface back to a like-new condition with just one product and without a waste of time and material.

PaiBoat Topfinish 2 - This is a nano-abrasives based refinishing polish able to permanently remove swirls, polishing marks resulting from previous coarse compounds and holograms, which are more visible on dark colours.

These precision abrasives with numerous exterior facets and extremely sharp edges are the critical element for safe removal of oxidation, heavy water spots, surface contaminants, stains and light surface scratches. Driven Finish Restorer simultaneously feeds the finish with a full spectrum of essential polymers and oils resulting in a phenomenal shine.

This unique combination of safe cleaning and nourishing is sure to bring out the very best in your finish.


Polish & Protect (Rapid Care)

PaiBoat Easy Gloss - This is a renewer protective polish, which gives high gloss finishing while adding wax protection on gelcoat and composite surfaces. It safely removes light oxidation, stains and water spots, restoring the original deep shine of the surface; at the same time, it helps stop fading caused by UV rays, natural elements, salt water and chalk. Thanks to its advanced formula made of next-generation polymers, Easy Gloss adheres to the surface, thus leaving an enduring protective and water-repellent film, as well as an unbelievable slick finish and radiant shine. It is very fast to apply with a foam applicator pad (by hand or machine polisher) and extremely easy to remove. Unlike many other polishing products on the market, it can be wiped off effortlessly, even after several hours.


Clean, Shine & Protect (3-in-1 Care)

Remove light oxidation and surface contaminants; enhance shine; add protection.


Driven Marine Polish is the best of the best. It’s loaded with the material necessary to hold up and protect in all harsh marine environments including intense sun and saltwater exposure. Driven Marine Polish can be used on all marine finishes and windows, giving your fibreglass, gelcoat or paintwork a beautiful high gloss wet look with incredible depth and clarity. Driven Marine Polish can be applied in sun or shade and once applied, environmental contaminants refuse to stick and easily wash off. We recommend applying twice a year for incredible results. Driven Marine Polish safely cleans and protects: fibreglass, gelcoat, paintwork (all paint types), glass, plexiglass, polycarbonate, high-gloss plastics, decals, chrome, polished aluminium, anodised aluminium, stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper and much more. Driven Marine Polish seals and protects against harsh marine elements: UV rays, water spots, salt spray, bugs, bird droppings, algae, barnacles, fish blood, fish scales, fuel, oil, exhaust fumes and dock marks.


Protect (Finish Protection)

PaiBoat UV Shield - Super protective and ultra-performing wax for gelcoat and composite materials, with amazing water beading properties and highly weather resistant. It leaves a thin but tough film that anchors to the surface, keeping it shiny and protected from UV rays, weathering, pollution, tree sap and bird droppings. UV Shield has been specifically formulated by our lab to assure a real protective shield that lasts a season. Thanks to its balanced blend of UV ray inhibitors, Carnauba waxes and polymers, it feeds and restores the original deep shine of surfaces, leaving a protective water repellent barrier and a rich gloss that lasts for a long time.
