Polymarine have formulated a specialist PVC paint called Superflex for the renovation of inflatable boats made from PVC and any other PVC variant material.
Superflex adheres in a super strong flexible bond, becoming part of the surface withstanding weathering, abrasions and retaining colours and bright whites for many years.
It has a super high stretch ratio that will not crack or flake off.
Superflex’s coating properties are highly opaque, easy to apply and quick drying.
Application is one coat for good surface adhesion and a second coat for a smooth satin appearance and improved, lasting durability to UV and the elements.

BY BRUSH (recommended)
It is recommended that Superflex be applied using a good Brush with Natural Bristles. Synthetic Bristles may dissolve due to the solvents present within Superflex.
ROLLERS (not recommended)
Use of Gloss Paint Rollers is not recommended as they’re usually synthetic and prone to breaking down due to solvents, thus spoiling your final finish.

Spraying can be done using the Polymarine Superflex 2661 Thinners, at a mix ratio of 1 Base to a maximum of 30% Thinners. Two spray coats should be applied as a minimum. Refer to SDS for cautionary and safety procedures.
