A look at how MagicEzy 9 Second Chip Fix compares with Fiberglass Repair Kits.
Most Fiberglass Repair Kits consist of a fiberglass matting, an epoxy resin and a hardener. As you probably know, working with fiberglass can be hazardous. And working with epoxy resins exposes you to noxious fumes. Then there’s the preparation, the application and finishing processes.
When repairing chips with a Fiberglass Repair Kit you need to cut the fiberglass mat to shape and place it over the blemish. You then need to mix the resin with a hardener and brush the solution on over the fiberglass mat. Next – wait 1 – 2 hours for it to dry.
Then – comes the finishing where you sand down the surface so it’s level. What you’re left with is a flat surface but the challenge is, in most cases, the color doesn’t match your boat’s paintwork.
As you can see, the process is complex, messy and takes a lot of time.
Instead, for chips, gouges and nicks, MagicEzy 9 Second Chip Fix offers a superior solution and can be done in a fraction of the time.
