If the signs of time passing by start to show on your boat or if you simply want to change the colour, forget about painting and switch to boat wrapping!
Painting needs time, days of boat stop and, above all, is very expensive. Moreover a painting has to be constantly polished and treated with special products.
With Ritrama films you can change the colour (or keep the same) of your boat in a very fast and not expensive way.
More benefits to come... the films guarantee a very high level of protection from UV rays and do not suffer of colour loss.
Forget also about maintenance because, contrary to painting, there's no need to polish or treat the film-covered surface: you only need to clean it with water and soap, or any other non granular cleanser.
Boat Wrapping Specific Films
The range of RI-WRAP MARINE self-adhesive materials includes three shades of blue, two grey and a white. The particular use has needed the development of a different kind of film with respect to the automotive version, highly waterproof in order to protect the boat and scratchproof. Actually Ritrama is the only producer of a nautical specific, high-quality film all over the world
In addition to "Marine" films, it is possible to put on the boat all the range of Ritrama films, that includes matt shades, chrome shades, glossy shades and carbon or leather-like textures. After the application the most damageable parts will be covered with a scratchproof film, in order to obtain the same characteristics of the nautical films.
How it works
The application is very easy and has to be done only by Ritrama Certified Application Centres technicians. There's no need for any particular preparation, no abrasive material is used, and no material is taken away: just clean the boat perfectly and fill any damaged parts if necessary. In few minutes it will be possible to start with the application that usually is finished within a day for a 9 metres boat. The films needs to rest for about 48 hours. Apart from complete wrapping, it is also possible to realize special decorations or simple details like striping and personalized logos.
Advantages of boat wrapping
Painting a boat is a very hard operation, that can require up to 15 days, and has to be made in special structures. Boat wrapping can be realized in very few days (e.g. a 13 metres boat needs only 10 hours for the application and 48 hours of rest, compared to the 10 days for a painting) and can be made also in the open air. Boat wrapping is an ideal solution for every kind of boat, from little boats to super yachts.
