Osmosis in boats is a very serious and widespread process.
It is manifested by the more or less large bubbles in correspondence of the submerged parts of the hull and such bubbles constitute the terminal phenomenon of a process which can take 10 years to appear.
The primary cause of its formation is due to the lack of the gel coat impermeability, which, both for quality and for natural aging and / or for external corrosive agents, can become a semi-permeable membrane, allowing water to agglomerate into bubbles, with the consequent increase in humidity that causes the hull of fiber delamination.
After a careful and proper diagnosis, with the finding of the exact moisture content present in the hull, we proceed to the actual treatment: it starts with the peeling, via Gelplane, for the elimination of the gel coat; We then proceed with forced drying (high temperature and vacuum) through the application of HotVac panels up to the achievement of an optimal moisture level.
To complete the work, we then proceed with the epoxy treatment and, finally, with the antifouling.
