Gluvit barrier coat is a waterproof epoxy sealer that protects hulls and decks. The formula seals leaky seams and rivets in aluminum hulls and leaks around fiberglass cabins or decks. Hard protective coating flexes with hull movements to bridge and seal hairline cracks. Gluvit also fills minor cracks and pinholes. Its long working time allows penetration into cracks to seal and strengthen. Acts as a barrier coat to minimize water absorption and galvanic corrosion. Deteriorated wood can be renewed with a few strokes to penetrate and strengthen stringers, decking, and molding. On wooden hulls, Gluvit seals and protects planks and sheeting against water absorption and damage from marine parasites. On aluminum hulls, Gluvit seals seams and rivets and acts as a barrier coat to minimize galvanic corrosion. On PWCs, rowboats, and canoes, Gluvit provides abrasion resistance to protect hull sides and bottoms from damage by grounding on beaches or rocks.
For maximum ultraviolet protection, Gluvit must be painted after full cure. Gluvit can be overcoated with any marine paint or other coating compatible with epoxies. Check with a paint supplier to make sure the coating you are using is epoxy friendly and suitable for your application.
