ShowBoat Custom Coatings Inc. provides a coating product that keeps boat fittings looking like new.

When exposed to the elements of salt moisture, wind and sun, stainless steel fairs better than aluminum but begins to rust in as little as three months and eventually leads to surface damage in 2-3 years. Brass, Copper, Bronze and other metals on your boat falls somewhere in between aluminum and stainless steel. The first stage you will notice is the metal will begin to turn green or bluish-green. The next stage will begin to turn brown or black as deterioration accelerates.

ShowBoat Custom Coating Inc. states that these various stages of deterioration can be stopped through the application of their patented SB-230, thus reducing the need for costly and time-consuming maintenance and eliminating further oxidation and corrosion.

SB-230 is a high-gloss clear ceramic coating that not only keeps metals looking like new, it also provides protection on a variety of surfaces in all types of conditions. SB-230 has excellent adhesion to ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It is exceptional for sealing polished metals such as aluminum and stainless steel while reducing the cost of your maintenance and preserving the life of your metal. SB-230 is not available in any stores. It was developed and is manufactured by a company that has been in business for over 20 years and have adapted SB-230 to the marine environment.

In addition to selling the product, ShowBoat Custom Coating, Inc. also provides the service.
