The 7 steps (The Renskib system)

1.
Rinse the vessel off once ashore. Remove all “old” wax and protection layers by using our R-110 Gel Coat Cleaner.
If you find chalk deposits on the surface use R-100 Yellow Stain and Barnacle remover. The latter is an acid that softens the calcium and then you can remove it.
Now the yacht is ready for polishing”.


2.
By seriously matted surfaces you may have to start by wet and dry grinding.
Then the surface must be polished by applying the R-120 Rubbing Compound. This is a coarse 6000 grit liquid polishing paste.
This product is polished by using a machine with a lambskin buffer or a polishing disc.


3.
Now the hull and/or the superstructure shall be polished with the fine R-130A liquid pre-sealer.
This is a fine 8000 grit liquid polishing paste for Gel Coat and hard two component painted surfaces.
The surface will now regain its shiny and smooth surface and leave it with a deep gloss.


4.
If your need to clean the teak with the R-125 Teak Cleaner, now is the time.
R-125 Teak Cleaner is a very mild and effective cleaner for the teak.
This product removes all organisms and dirt from the teak and freshens up the wood.
By brushing the teak in circles the treatment will also remove all the “dead” wood from the deck.
It is important to keep the deck wet at all times.
You may use the R-125 Teak Cleaner during the season without harming the sealer.


5.
After the hull and/or the superstructure has been polished, and the teak is cleaned, wash the yacht with the Renskib R-140 Shampoo.
This will remove any remains of the polishing and teak cleaning, and the final sealing of the Gel Coat and two component painted surfaces can commence.
The cleaning ensures that the R-130 B Sealer will stick well to the treated surfaces.
 

6.
Now all polished gel coat and/or hard two component painted surfaces shall be sealed by applying the Renskib R-130 B Sealer, which protects against the UV-radiation.
ONLY to be used on smooth surfaces (Do not use on raw plastic parts).
Apply the sealer by using a damp sponge, let it dry up for just a few minutes and polish it by using a multi-fibre cloth.
This final treatment gives the yacht a deep ceramic gloss and protects the treated surfaces against the influences of sunlight. The product is also a non-sticking agent.

7.
The routine maintenance will now be very easy and fast by using the Renskib R-140 Shampoo. This will make the result of the steps 1 to 6, even better.

Renskib recommends:
Mix 20 ml R-140 in ½ liter of water in a spray bottle, or as needed. Spray on a small area and wipe with a damp microfiber cloth. Subsequently, dry/polish with a dry microfiber cloth.
This ensures low water consumption and less lime and mineral deposits left on the surface.
