Bundle makes ceramic-coated boats shine brighter

Glidecoat Ceraglo

June 26, 2023

Ceramic coatings protect marine finishes longer than any wax, and periodic touch-ups further extend the life of their protective qualities. The custom-formulated Maintenance Bundle from Glidecoat includes everything to preserve and enhance the showroom shine of a boat and keep it looking great all season long.

The Maintenance Bundle begins with a bottle of Glidecoat’s innovative Ceraglo Polymer Infused Soap. This concentrated and pH-neutral cleaner produces a high-foam content that safely removes dirt, salt, oily exhaust grime, bird droppings and other contaminants. Its formulation has added polymers that create a supplemental protective layer on the finish.

Next is Glidecoat’s Shine & Shield Polymer Sealant, an easy-to-apply wax replacement that includes 42% active ingredients. It creates a sacrificial layer that adds gloss and UV protection while enhancing the ceramic coating’s hydrophobic properties. Sprayed onto the clean finish, it’s buffed lightly with the included double-sided Microfiber Cloth. The product is ideal for any boat surface including gelcoat, paint, vinyl, plexiglass, stainless steel, chrome, rubber and wood.

Glidecoat Maintenance Bundles are made in the USA and come in three sizes. For boats up to 20′, the Regular bundle contains a 16 oz. bottle of Ceraglo Polymer Infused Soap, a 16 oz. spray bottle of Shine & Shield Polymer Sealant and two Microfiber Cloths. The Large size covers vessels up to 30′, has an additional bottle of sealant and four cloths. The X-Large size is ideal for boats up to 40′ and contains two bottles of soap, three bottles of sealant and six cloths.
