Frequently Asked Questions
Are MagicEzy repairs long-lasting?
Yes. MagicEzy products are designed to withstand the elements for years. The unique combination of ultra strong adhesion, flexibility and UV protection make our products supremely durable. In fact, we tested it against the leading gelcoat brands and MagicEzy was more than 5 times stronger. This is why we guarantee that MagicEzy repairs will last for at least 3 years.
How should I prepare/clean my boat before application?
A few drops of Kitchen Dishwashing detergent in a cup of water is all you need. If the chips looks dirty or black use a paint brush to agitate inside the chip – then rinse out the hole with fresh water and allow to dry. You may also need to clean the crack out with a pin.
Why do we clean a crack with a PIN?
In the first months a hairline crack is nearly clear. Over time it fills with dirt which looks more black. That dirt must be loosened quickly with a pin and followed by a soapy water wash and rinse so that the Hairline Fix can get inside the crack.
Why not clean with Acetone?.
Acetone removes grease very very well but misses cleaning dust and grime. It is also expensive and the fumes are dangerous. However “dishwashing detergent” is inexpensive and safely but effectively cleans most surfaces..
What is the Catalyst?
MagicEzy is air dry.
What is the largest damage that I could repair?
There is no largest size. All sizes are repairable and guaranteed. Larger damage may need a larger spatula to apply.
Can you tell me which color to use for a particular model of boat?
Due to the fact that gelcoat can discolor quickly over time, it’s virtually impossible to give an accurate color recommendation that is based on the model of your boat.
The best thing for you to do is refer to our Color Chart and estimate the closest match.
The two most popular whites are Snow White (pure white) and Oyster White (creamy off white). If required, you can mix two or more colors together to form a new color. Mix on a clear plastic wrap on top of the surface and match to the color of your boat.
I did the repair and then it vanished?
Hairline cracks can be deep or shallow depending on the thickness of the gelcoat. The deeper ones require up to 4 coats of Hairline Fix. Apply additional coats immediately if it disappears.
How long does it take to cure?
Cure time can vary depending on the size of the repair and current weather conditions. If the temperature is expected to drop below 20°C / 70°F within 24 hours, blow dry the repair with a warm hairdryer for about 2 minutes after each coat. This will remove surface moisture and help the product cure.
MagicEzy products have ultra-strong adhesion that provides tough, long-lasting repairs. In order to achieve this strength, MagicEzy needs a little extra time to cure. Allow 48 hours before subjecting the repair to contact. Avoid getting wet for 14 days (If necessary, cover area with a temporary shield. Eg. plastic bag, sealed with electrical tape ). MagicEzy will continue to strengthen and harden over the next 2 to 4 weeks.
Re-coat time: 2 hours (at 20°C / 70°F)
Can MagicEzy be used for repairs under water?
Due to some environmental laws in certain parts of the world, our products are not recommended for areas permanently below the water.
Is there enough product in the tube to do all repairs?
In short – A little goes a long way and you will be surprised just how much you can repair with one tube. There are many variables which can influence how much you will need, but professionals who have used the product tell us they repair over 10 boats with each tube.
