Plastic and vinyl parts in the marine environment are exposed to extreme negative emissions that cause ageing of the material quite quickly and intensively. The most prominent among these emission factors are heat, dampness, UV-radiation and the use of aggressive detergents. The strong Australian sun creates a great deal of heat that plastic is exposed to, the opposite is the case in winter. These natural emissions cause the plastic to lose moisture leading to discoloration and also cracking at a later stage. Sun damaged vinyl is the major cause of retrimming - an expensive exercise that can be avoided with regular applications of Swissvax Protecton.
For the care and protection of plastic and vinyl parts, Swissvax offers "Protecton", a preservative product enriched with precious oils. It replaces moisture that the material has lost over time, frees solvents that are enclosed in the material and restores old plastic and vinyl parts to their original appearance and maintains new plastic parts in new condition for a very long time when applied regularly.
