Gel Coat Yellowing Oxidization & Dullness Issues & Causes.
Gel Coat Yellow / Yellowing is a major issue in the marine industry. It degrades the value of a vessel and usually ends up costing manufacturers (when under warranty claim) and boat owners loads of their hard earned money. Most detailer’s / skippers / similar will buff or even sand and buff the surface of the Gel Coat in an attempt to cut back the yellowed / dull (coloured or non coloured) gel coat or oxidized surface layer, while this may assist in the short term it certainly won’t fix the problem. Before you know it the surface will require re-sanding/buffing again which only serves to thin the gel coat and the process will continue over and over until you end up with a large total bill and in extreme cases parts of exposed fibre glass and areas requiring touch up gel coat spraying and more money.
