Undrdog Marine FAQUpdated 6 months ago
Quick Q&A about our boat coating flagship product - Undrdog Marine
An innovative professional marine coating to keep vessels looking glossy, protected from the elements, and easily maintainable for up to 2 years.
What is Undrdog Marine good for?
It will reduce your maintenance by at least 50% and protect your vessel from incidents that occur through day-to-day boating or storage, like bird droppings, bug accumulation, acid rain, and other things of that nature. A coating adds a layer of protection between your vessel and the elements.
Is Undrdog Marine like a ceramic coating?
Yes, it's similar: it beads water, it is glossy, and offers protection from the elements. However, as we listen to the market and adapt to fix the most critical pain points, we make it way easier to install, which in turn makes it more affordable for both the installer and the customer.
How difficult is it to apply Undrdog Marine?
Undrdog Marine is one of the easiest if not the easiest coatings to apply on the market today. With a slow flash time and weather-tolerant composition, it makes applying this single-layer coating a breeze.
Can Undrdog Marine be applied to the interior?
Yes, it can. Undrdog Marine protects well on all surfaces including vinyl, plastics, metal, and glass. However, it is not advised to use it on fabrics.
How big of a boat can I coat with 100ml of Undrdog Marine?
Anywhere between 25-35ft, depending on the type of boat.
Can I apply more than one layer of Marine?
Marine was designed as single-layer coatings. Technically, you can layer it. When applying additional layers, you increase the risk of mistakes and hazing. You're also reactivating the previous layer and removing some of it. We find applying a single thick layer and letting it flash for as long as possible to be more effective.
With that said, many UD Installers still decide to apply an additional layer. If you choose to do so, we recommend you wait 30 - 60 minutes before applying another layer.
What happens if it rains immediately after I coat my vessel?
Things happen - if it rains on your boat within 24 hours of having it coated, you should dry your vessel with soft microfibers as soon as it stops. Be conscious of damages. We've seen that 95% of the time no damages occur, but in the event they do, you can apply another layer. The best thing to do of course is to keep it out of the rain while your coating dries.
How often do I have to reapply this coating?
This is totally dependent on the wear and tear that your vessel experiences and how well you take care of it. Most users see a couple of years before needing to reapply, but again it is completely dependent on aftercare. Remember that aftercare is greatly reduced by having Marine applied.
How long will my vessel be protected?
The coating will last for a couple of years, depending on how you take care of your vessel. The best way to do that is to wash it once a week or every other week when in use. And always dry after an outing.
Is there a specific maintenance program that I need to keep doing or is it just set-it-and-forget-it?
It can definitely be a set-it-and-forget-it, however, to get the maximum performance and longevity, the following is recommended:
- Regular vessel washes with our Soap and a soft wash mitt or brush.
- Regular usage of our Quick Detail, a product that can add some slickness and hydrophobicity for those looking to get the most out of their coating.
What happens if I no longer want the coating on my vessel?
You are stuck with it forever! Joking aside, a quick polish will remove the coating. From there you can reapply the coating or carry on without it.
Do I need to be trained and certified to apply this coating?
No, of course not! That's another perk of Undrdog, we listened to the market and made an easy-to-apply and highly effective single-layer coating that just about anyone can do. One of many ways we are saving you money and time.
Can I apply Undrdog Marine to vinyl wraps?
Yes, absolutely you can. Undrdog Marine absorbs into the vinyl and seals it from stains, and sun fade. The coating will also make cleaning and drying a breeze.
Will Undrdog Marine make the deck of my boat slippery?
It depends on the type of deck. The standard grated non-skid deck won’t be slippery, but roll-on sand non-skid will be. As for synthetic decks, it's moot to coat them with any coating on the market.
Can I apply wrap or stickers over the coating?
Typically not, because the coating has anti-stick properties, and it's typical for wraps or stickers to delaminate if applied over the coating. We recommend getting your wrap or stickers applied prior to coating application.
What’s the difference between Undrdog Pro and Undrdog Marine?
Undrdog Marine is specially designed for Gelcoat and lasts up to 2 years. It is mostly used to coat vehicles that are outside most of the time, like vessels and RVs.
Do I really need to wear gloves and proper safety gear?
Yes, when working with any chemical including ours you should wear gloves and respiratory wear. No two bodies are alike and it is better to be safe than sorry.
