Coverage of Our Osmosis Rot Repair Kit

This will clearly depend upon the extent of the Osmosis Rot that is affecting your fibreglass hull. The example pictured above is particularly nasty.

Coverage of CPES and Fill-It for repairing Osmosis Blisters

Budget 2 Gallons of CPES and 1 Gallon of Fill-It for every 10 square metres of hull with osmosis rot. Badly rotted hulls may use twice this amount. The least rotted hulls will use far less than this amount. Send us photos to assist in estimation if you would like assistance estimating coverage. Please include a ruler against the photos to assist in estimation.

Feel free to purchase these products on a sale or return basis. It is important to have enough product at the start of the Osmosis rot repair. Return unused product to us for resale if you have any leftover.

We supply black pigment free of charge to aid mixing with all Osmosis rot repair kits.

Coverage of International Interprotect when curing Osmosis Rot

International Interprotect covers at up to 8 square metres / litre for a single coat.

5L of White and 5L of Grey International Interprotect treats around 40 square metres of hull. This also offers the contrasting colours between coats. Contrasting colours aid even coverage of the Interprotect.
