What is Oxidation? How do I remove it?

Oxidation can be a common problem on cars and boats, as they are often exposed to the elements and can accumulate dirt and debris over time. This can cause discoloration, fading, and other forms of damage to the paint or fiberglass. In this blog, we'll discuss some effective methods for removing oxidation from cars and boats.

Cars

Removing oxidation from car paint is an important step in maintaining its appearance and value. One effective method for removing oxidation from car paint is to use a compound or polish specifically designed for this purpose. These products contain abrasives that can remove the oxidized layer and reveal the clean paint underneath.

To use a car polish or compound, start by washing and drying the car thoroughly. Apply the product using a clean applicator pad, working it into the surface in a circular motion. Depending on the severity of the oxidation, you may need to repeat this process several times, using progressively finer abrasive compounds.

Once the oxidation has been removed, rinse the car thoroughly with water and dry it completely. Finally, apply a coat of wax or sealant to protect the paint from future oxidation and damage.

Boats

Oxidation on boat surfaces, particularly on fiberglass, can cause discoloration and damage over time. To remove oxidation from boat surfaces, start by cleaning the surface thoroughly with a boat cleaner or soap and water. Once the surface is clean, you can use a specialized oxidation remover specifically designed for boats and fiberglass.

Apply the oxidation remover according to the manufacturer's instructions, using a clean cloth or brush to work it into the surface. Depending on the severity of the oxidation, you may need to repeat this process several times, using progressively stronger products.

Once the oxidation has been removed, rinse the surface thoroughly with water and dry it completely. Finally, apply a boat wax or sealant to protect the surface from future oxidation and damage.

In conclusion, removing oxidation from cars and boats is an important step in maintaining their appearance and value. By using the appropriate products and methods, you can easily remove oxidation and protect the surfaces from future damage.
