Pedros, an approved Awlgrip application
centre, has the highly qualified staff to care for your boat
and produce a shiny new
finish matching virtually any colour to add value to an older
vessel and give new life to a tired looking boat making it
look almost as if it’s just been delivered from the factory
The paints used are based on polyurethane or epoxy plastics
which cure by using a combination of chemical and physical
processes giving a strong, durable surface with high protection
against both the sea and the sun with improved gloss retention.
New, highly technical formulas are used which give improved
pot life and also mean the finish achieved with brush applications
is comparable to that of spraying.
Improvements have also been made to gloss finishes with additives
ensuring the ‘wet look’ shine is kept for longer.
All paintwork takes place in our purpose built spray facility
which has extraction equipment controlling the atmosphere as
the paint systems used are sensitive to variations in the ambient
conditions during application.
The first stage of any paint work is to thoroughly prepare
the surface, a procedure which takes many hours for each square

On most boats, Pedros will use a two component system. But
on older, wooden boats, conventional single components will
still be used as these are more forgiving towards flexibility
and surface imperfections.
Pedros’ staff are experienced in achieving the best
results possible using these complex materials. By only using
the best quality paints from the world’s leading manufacturers
we ensure we stay at the forefront of technical development.
