: Hello Bert,
: Actually, if there is not an extreme temperature difference
: between the warmer inside of the hull and the cold sea water,
: the moisture passes from outside inwards. Water in the bilge
: has a cooling effect which increases the inward moisture movement.
: Further, as you can find in the web site book, it is not the moisture
: that causes the hydrolysis problem. Instead it is the hydrolysis
: which creates the voids, delaminations and capillaries which allows
: the laminate to absorb and HOLD a larger than normal amount of moisture.
: When all the voids are filled, moisture starts to evaporate from the
: inside again.
: The only way to stop the problem is to remove the true causes for the
: hydrolysis, which unfortunately is a difficult task.
: Regards Bengt
Thanks for your reply. Am I correct that a 'Protective product" includes Interlux 2000 and that you don't recomend using this product after sand blasting a hull? I live in Toronto On. Canada where Interlux 2000 is widely used. Do you have a repair facility or agent in Toronto?
