Poly Glow in Lieu of Wax

Postby Moondance » Thu Apr 09, 2020 3:13 pm

Has anyone used Poly Glow on the fiberglass in lieu of old fashioned wax.
Any comments as to the durability? How long before it has to be redone. W
What does it look like when it wears off
Does it have to be removed after you want to go back to waxing

Not familiar with that product. My routine is "3M Cleaner and Wax" https://www.fisheriessupply.com/3m-mari ... er-and-wax and Mer-Maids boat wash with carnauba wax https://www.fisheriessupply.com/mermaid ... ncentrated. Works well with using the cleaner and wax 1x per year. PNW.

Thanks for your comment; it makes sense to stick with the tried method of clean and wax ones a year.

I don't use a true wax. This is 3m cleaner and wax in one shot. Probably not as good as a full true wax but it works pretty well for me.

Yes, I have used the same stuff in the past and will use it again. Do you use a buffing polishing tool?

No, unfortunately I have found that doing it by hand with a buffing pad produces good results. I used a buffing pad on a drill and that works OK but when I did it I could see circular marks that I wasn't happy with.

Thank you Jamie; Nice to communicate with you, even about simple topics.... Perhaps due to having lots of spare time during these unreal times
Stay healthy

I do use 3m marine cleaner like Jamie however I do use a buffer with foam pads. You can get the pads on Amazon pretty cheap. With the 3m your not supposed to let it dry some your just doing small sections at a time. Once I have done that I go back over with NuFinish. This one you do let dry to a haze before removing. The buffer works well and decreases the fatigue factor. If I had to buy a buffer again I would save a few $$$ and just get it at harbor freight with a 20% off coupon.
