I had PPG Urethane applied to my boat. What is the recommended maintenance protocol. Wax, polish etc.

Thank you.

Though you do not specify which one you used, from their website and the materials there I get the impression that no wax is required. ( ie: after cured, it is ready to use )

I am sure you could email them with the details of the product chosen and receive their views on post-cure care.

If you do, post the results here. Inquiring minds want to know!

I asked the guy that applied it and the only response was go ahead and wax, if you want. It looks great, as is, but I want to keep it that way. The previous gel coat was so oxidized I couldn't keep a gloss. I'll keep investigating and if I come up with something I will post it.

Similar to car finish, treat it the same.

I would use a non wax polymer sealant. Try to protect from UV and it will last a long time.

Plus sealant helps with clean up.

The paint that was used is PPG Concept Acrylic Urethane.
