Yacht Surface Protection
In addition to wrapping using coloured films, LuxWrap also offers a range of extremely hard wearing clear Surface Protection Films (SPF) designed to protect against general wear and tear and scratches.
Available in gloss and matt finishes, with a range of thicknesses and features, the best SPF offers both Hydrophobic and Self-Healing properties.
Hydrophobic - The film repels water making it extremely easy to clean.
Self-Healing - Minor scuffs (such as rubbing aggressively with a wire brush), return to their original finish with a small amount of heat, be it sun or hot water.
Some of the many applications for SPF include:
Externally - High wear deck areas, wooden cap rails, high gloss surfaces such as table-tops, surfaces exposed to UV, areas where ropes and fenders rub, tender scuff areas. Applying SPF around exhaust fume areas prevents carbon buildup on the paint, and makes cleaning quick and easy.
Internally - All types of interior surfaces that are vulnerable to scuffs and scratches or which require ease of cleaning: stainless steel galleys, fridges and freezers, high gloss varnished surfaces, wooden furniture and worktops, table-tops, wooden and stainless rails.
As with vinyl films, SPF can be removed and replaced when it has completed its life cylcle.
LuxWrap offers SPF both as a standalone solution and as part of our hull/superstructure wrapping service. Our experience includes large scale installations on some of the highest profile new build yachts in recent years, as well as on many other Superyachts.
When combining the best SPF with the best vinyl film, you have a yacht finishing system not only comparable to paint in appearance, but easier to clean and more resistent to abrasion and UV, whilst still being much lower cost.
