Wiping boat hull after polishing

The exposure of a boat's painted surfaces to the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays is doubled due to sunlight reflecting off the water. This makes it essential to utilise a wax containing UV inhibitors to guard against this threat. When dealing with larger areas, it is recommended to apply Profile Polymer UV Wax using a machine for effective protection. For those instances where hand application is required, Profile UV Wax is the preferred choice, ensuring the preservation of the paintwork's integrity and appearance.
