HOW STRONG IS POLYETHYLENE?
Polyethylene has an impact resistance around 5 times better than fiberglass. It is quite difficult to severely damage a boat made out of polyethylene as the inherent nature of the material is to flex on impact.Categories: Polyethylene
WILL DIRECT SUNLIGHT AFFECT A POLYCRAFT?
The plastic compound used by Polycraft is a low density Polyethylene manufactured specifically for the construction of our boats. The material is UV stable and has a UV rating of 11 which is much higher than most plastics (for example, a wheelie bin which spends all its time in the sun and outdoors only has a UV rating of 2).Categories: Brumby, Drifter, Polyethylene, TuffTender, UV, Warrior
HOW DO I CLEAN MY POLYCRAFT?
Normal everyday washing only requires fresh water and you may wish to use a form of marine wash. If your Polycraft is really grubby you can use engine degreaser, truck wash, or CT18 which is available at most Supercheap Auto stores and wash down with a high pressure hose. NOTE: Do not try and polish your boat with car polish or any type of buffing compound, this will have the reverse effect. Once the boat has been washed thoroughly you can buff the boat with a lambswool buffing pad (no liquids).Categories: Cleaning, Maintenance, Polyethylene
