Quick Q&A about Undrdog Marine+
The next evolution of Undrdog Marine: an elite coating made for professionals only.
Who Is Undrdog Marine+ Good For?
Undrdog Marine+ is a product we strongly recommend for seasoned coating installers and detail shops only. If you’re a weekend warrior or car enthusiast, Undrdog Marine will be a better fit for you.
How Difficult Is It To Install Undrdog Marine+?
We stuck with our single-layer methodology to ensure efficient installation. However, the mean protective punch that Marine+ provides comes with a shorter flash time that only pros can handle.
How Big Of A Boat Can I Coat With 100ml of Undrdog Marine+?
Anywhere between 25-35ft, depending on the type of boat.
What Surfaces Can I Apply Undrdog Marine+ To?
Undrdog Marine+ protects all surfaces including vinyl, plastics, metal, and glass. However, it is not advised to use it on fabrics.
Can I Install Undrdog Marine+ On Vinyl Wraps?
Absolutely! Undrdog Marine+ absorbs into vinyl and protects it from stains and fading.
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 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 Installation?
Things happen. If it rains on your boat within 24 hours of having it coated, dry the surface with soft microfibers as soon as it stops. This will prevent the occurrence of water spots and any potential damage to the coating. 95% of the time no damages occur, but in the event they do, you can apply another layer.
How Long Will My Vessel Be Protected?
With proper maintenance, Marine+ can last up to 3 years. However, you can expect a reduction in longevity if the coating is neglected or maintained using improper aftercare methods.
How Do I Maintain Undrdog Marine+?
To get the maximum performance and longevity, the following is recommended:
- Regular vessel washes with our Soap and a soft wash mitt.
- 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.
How Can I Remove Undrdog Marine+?
A quick polish will remove the coating. From there you can reapply the coating or carry on with raw, boring paint.
How Does Undrdog Marine+ Compare To Undrdog Marine?
Both Undrdog Marine and Undrdog Marine+ are based on Polytetrafluoroethylene - (C2F4)n, Silicon, and Paraffin to create the trifecta of awesomeness: durability, performance, and value. So the difference between them isn’t the chemical composition itself - it’s the ratio of ingredients.
The concentration of silicon (the “ceramic” in ceramic coatings) is higher in Undrdog Marine+. Because of this, Undrdog Marine+ is more durable, provides better chemical resistance, boats higher hydrophobicity, more gloss, and extra paint saturation, as well as slickness!
What Is The Shelf Life Of Undrdog Marine+?
If stored in a cool, dry location, an unopened bottle of Undrdog Marine+ can last up to 2 years. An open bottle with the lid tightly closed lasts up to a year.
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.
