Best way to protect laminate exterior from oxidation?

This is what we used and recommended when I had a boat company operating. Waxed twice a year we never had any fading or chalking on any of our hulls or decks. But you have to wax it religiously.

We primarily built offshore fishing yachts, so salt water and UV exposure was gelcoats enemy.

How did you apply it? Hand or machine? If machine, what type. I have a Porter Cable Random Orbit polisher. Is that overkill for this?

The richest are not those who have the most, but those who need the least.

I use 303 on my fiberglass MH. It is really not a wax, but has a very nice shine, last a fairly long time and

has UV protection.

Just my 2 cents and an idea you might try.

 

I have Zero oxidation. My MH is stored outside.

Use Mothers Carnuba wax and apply by hand 2 times a year. Unit is 6 yrs old now and have had many people say it still looks like new.
