[Amel Yacht Owners] Dodger glass thickness


Bill & Judy Rouse <yahoogroups@...>
 

Ben,

I am 99.9% sure it is Plexiglass brand, and I am 100% sure it is 10mm (3/8"). Consider a light tint...and be sure that the edges are painted where they glue to the fiberglass.

Can someone confirm the original specification for SM hard dodger glass.  What is thickness ?  And is it acrylic or polycarbonate ?

Do you know that it can be polished? The polished is sold in automotive supply store for polishing head lights.

Yes, but crazing will not polish out...only discoloring.

Actually Mark Hanna, that used to be on this forum, they own, or may be owned a Sharki once told me to use toothpaste and yes it worked very well to remove scratch!

I think Ben is dealing with crazing from UV damage. Polishing will have little to no improvement for crazing.

I just had all new dodger Windows cut from polycarbonate. Bill, you mentioned glueing them in. I assume you would mean using 5000 for this? I am on the fence on whether to go that route or use Silicon that can allow more flex. I was concerned that the window might crack as the dodger flexed. Thoughts?

We used a flexible product from Sikaflex. But, 3 of the 4 pieces on a SM are also screwed. I think it will take a lot of force to crack 10mm plexiglass.

Jay,
just for clarification: Plexiglass is a product name, not the material, which is acrylic - this is used for the dodger windows of the SM. You bought polycarbonate, which is fine: more sensitive to scratches, stronger against impact.
If you use polyurethane for bonding (either a Sicaflex or a GE product), you will need some kind of UV protection for the sealant. Amel used a thin coat of gelcoat on the windows. To put it on you have to check with the manufacturer (of the polycarbonate), if there is any kind of wax/protection on the "glass", how it can be decreased and if you need to sand the strip of polycarbonate, where you will put the UV cover (first) resp. the polyurethane (later). For the polyurethane you will need some kind of spacers (like small rubber strips) to keep a certain thickness (about 2mm) of the polyurethane.
If you use gelcoat as UV protection, it will be sticky on the surface (if you don´t cover it with tape). Either sand the sticky surface or don´t bother, because you will use polyurethane afterwards.
If you use topcoat (which contains paraffine for getting a glossy and nonsticky surface) as a UV cover, you will have to sand it to get a good bonding of the polyurethane.
I´m not sure about what you mean with "5000" - if is it some kind of rigid adhesive with a thin coat, it might be difficult to make it waterproof.

Walter (Noa, SM2K #436)
