Step 1: Wash (Maintenance Wash)

Remove loose surface contaminants (with a sealant/wax-friendly protective wash).

Wash [heavily soiled vessels]: Maintain surface/finish with PaiBoat Nauticlean or Driven Wash Shampoo Concentrate.

Rinseless Wash [lightly soiled vessels]: Maintain surface/finish with Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine or Wash & Wax.

Waterless Wash [lightly soiled vessels]: Maintain surface/finish with Ultima Waterless Wash or Optimum Opti-Clean.

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.

Step 2: Clean (Surface Preparation)

Remove bonded surface/sub-surface contaminants (before polishing or protecting).

Decontaminate: Remove contaminants with detailing clay in combination with a quick detail spray (clay bar & lubricant).

SmartClay (Bar) is a surface care product that safely removes the bonded contamination that washing leaves behind. With SmartClay, insect remains, paint overspray, industrial fallout, brake dust, tar spots and tree sap are erased away like magic. Use the SmartClay bar in conjunction with a quick detail spray (to lubricate the surface). SmartClay glides over the surface, removing the protruding contamination. Claying is an important step in proper finish care (prior to polishing and waxing).

Step 3.1: Correct (Surface Correction)

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

Compound [heavily weathered finishes]: Apply PaiBoat Just 1 (by machine polisher) or PaiBoat Extra Cut (by hand).

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.
