Re: Engine room lining on Amel 54


I feel certain Roque's methods are probably the best (earlier post in this thread).

I have had several clients take another approach by brushing-on and rolling-on this product. I will ask my client(s) to post the finished photos.

Hi Lior 

I decided to try "liquid rubber" last year and I am pleased with the result. A lot of work and time, though.

I spray painted using a high quality liquid rubber made for industrial use: Protex by BioLub Industries, made in Brazil. I also tested with "Plasti Dip". This Plasti Dip, or similar, you can easily find in US and the end result was satisfactory.

Before applying "Protex", I diluted with Xylol solvent, and tested on a piece of foam I had. Only after a few days with no damage, I painted a test 10cm x 10cm patch on the boat foam itself. I used a small brush for this test, but waited for a couple of months (Covid helped here!) As it has not damaged the foam at all, I made two new patches with 2 and 3 coats to compare. Two coats seamed about right to me.

The finish is not bright, and if the foam had imperfections before due to lack of linen, of course they will not completely disappear (see pic). But even in this case it protects the foam from further degradation and renders a much, much better look.

I also decided, for now, not to paint the areas where the original protection was not peeling off or cracked. But  will do before it starts.

Hope it helps

Hello everybody

I have the same problem and wanted to ask if somebody found a good solution that solve the problem. 
Did you found good paint? or any material that you can stick on the foam?
