I'm a recent convert to traffic film remover. Smells like exactly the same stuff, works just as well and a fraction of the price

RIB Revive... I can't seem to find where to buy that in Australia! Any Aussie's on here with a suggestion for a product I can get in Australia to CLEAN my SIB?

Cheers.

tubes:-For a true deep clean I got hold of some G101 it's amazing stuff I don't know what it does but I put abit on scrubbed and it was orange again and the washed with lots of water I found it better than using solvent to clean. I have tried rib revive and although it is amazing stuff G101 and TFR win hands down and is about half the cost.

After G101 I used the rib revive uv gel stuff which amazing it give a nice depth of colour which makes all the difference.

Come to thing of it It needs to be done again.

Best Inflatable boat protectant

Here in South Florida in the Sub-Tropics we have very intense sun. The most popular product used by RIB owners, Yacht Captains with RIBS and commercial yards is a product know as 303 protectant. It was developed by NASA, and as hard as it is to believe, it will stop 100% of UV fading if used on a regular basis. I use it every two months, just wipes on with no effort at all. Here is a US link to information on 303. It is available in the UK.

303 Aerospace Protectant 1 Gallon

Of course the optimal way to protect you RIB is to keep it covered at all times when it is not being used. I also always immediately do a wash down on the boat and a good dry. Nothing is ruin a boat faster that salt water left on the boat.
