Water slide painting is vital to keep the beauty and durability of water slides, especially those made from fiberglass, which are usually susceptible to sun damage and incursion depending on the resin used in the manufacturing process.
Water incursion can cause bubbling or blistering, though it would take years for this to develop. But in the case of water slides which are often exposed to sun and water, blistering tends to appear faster. It can be a major problem when not attended immediately during the first few days of the appearance of blisters.
In order for water and ultraviolet light or sunlight to be added with barrier, Solid Water Slide Repair performs water slide painting to provide a protective layer against the incursions. Aside from protecting the surface, it also enhances the look of fiberglass water slides.

Proper preparation of the surface is highly important in water slide painting. The gel coat will not stick on surfaces that are oily or greasy. Hence, the surface should be thoroughly sanded with the proper grit of sand paper. At which point, if there are gouges or if the surface is rough, thin, or stress cracks/blistering is discovered, this would also be addressed at this time. Paint will not adhere well to surfaces that are glossy therefore the preparation is the most vital step in the refinishing of a water slide, which is why this process must be done by our gel coat refinishing and painting specialists. In this industry, along with just about any other, you get what you pay for. If it sounds too cheap, or too good to be true, the product being applied to your slides is likely not gel coat.
