ALUMETRON™ FIGHTS CORROSION, PROTECTS ALUMINUM AND KEEPS YOUR PONTOONS CLEAN AND SHINY
ALUMETRON™ is a new discovery from Aurora Marine Industries that pontoon boat owners have been waiting for. The biggest single complaint that pontoon owners have about their boats is the difficulty and drudgery of maintaining their pontoons. Most are impractical to haul out of the water after each use so they are traditionally left in the water all season long. Within a few weeks of launching them, the pontoons begin staining and corroding and by the end of the season they look more like rusty steel drums than the highly prized shiny silver look they had when the boat was new.
WHAT IS ALUMETRON™?
ALUMETRON™ is a clear polymer coating that protects raw, anodized and cast aluminum against oxidation, tarnish, staining, corrosion, pitting, salt spray, road film, acid rain and environmental damage. It’s so tough that it will stand up to constant fresh and salt water immersion and still keep aluminum pontoons and boat hulls looking shiny and new all season long. It will protect trailered pontoons, fence rails, wakeboard and fishing towers, outriggers and sail rigging against corrosion and pitting for up to 5 years.
ALUMETRON™ is unique because it bonds chemically as well as mechanically to aluminum, making it superior to any other aluminum coating. It’s water based and does not contain the many toxic chemicals and solvents associated with other coatings. It is not flammable or corrosive and is safe for the environment, the boat and the applicator. It’s easy to apply by wiping and inevitable scuffs and scratches can easily be retouched during the year. It seals the fissures in the aluminum making the surface less susceptible to attachment of dirt and marine growth. It even gives the aluminum a smooth silky feel which women appreciate when swimming near the boat.
WHEN TO APPLY ALUMETRON™?
The ideal time to apply ALUMETRON™ is when the boat is new, before the logs become corroded, but Aurora Marine makes a full line of products that easily cleans and restores abused pontoons. Now even older pontoons can be made to look new again. They also manufacture a clear, environment friendly, anti-fouling that can be applied over the ALUMETRON™ which resists the attachment of marine growth.
Keeping your pontoons clean and shiny not only improves the value of your boat and enhances pride of ownership, but the reduced friction improves performance and reduces fuel consumption. ALUMETRON™ might be one of the best investments you can make for your pontoon boat.
YOU TOO CAN KEEP YOUR PONTOONS SHINY & CLEAN FOR UP TO 10 YEARS:
||The ideal time to apply ALUMETRON™ and VS721™ is when the boat is brand new.

• COVERAGE: 250sq. ft. ONE COAT (16oz bottle), 2000sq. ft. ONE COAT (1US Gal Jug)
ALUMETRON™ is an easy to apply clear polymer coating that bonds chemically and mechanically to aluminum for a smooth, durable, protective finish that resists environmental damage and attachment of dirt. It keeps your aluminum looking shiny and new all season even with constant water immersion.
New Aluminum: Clean & degrease aluminum. Wet aluminum with water, spray BOAT CLEAN PLUS™ onto surface andwash with a MARINE POWER MITT™, cloth, sponge, or pressure washer. Hot water improves cleaning. Rinse and dry.
Fouled Aluminum: Remove fouling from aluminum with ALGEX™. Clean & degrease as above.
Tarnished Aluminum: Remove oxidation and stains with ALUMABRITE CBX®. Clean & degrease as above.
450ml / 16oz- 250 ft²
3.8L / 1US gal – 2,000 ft²
APPLICATION: Surface must be clean and dry.
WIPE: Apply 4 thin coats ALUMETRON™. Wipe on with a lint free cloth pad, in long, even, overlapping strokes. Do not overwork application or bubbles and streaking will result.
|CURE TIME at 77°F – 50% R.H.:
• To touch 10 min.
• To recoat 20 min.
• To light service 8 hrs.
• To full cure 48 hrs.
• To water immersion 96 hrs.
• To application of VS721 96 hrs.
15°C – 35°C
60°F – 95°FHUMIDITY
CLEAN UP: Soap & Water. Cured ALUMETRON™ can be removed with lacquer thinners.
DAMAGE REPAIR: Repair scratched or abraded surface by cleaning damaged area as above and apply 4 thin coats of ALUMETRON™ with a folded cloth pad.
WATER IMMERSION: To protect surfaces that will be continuously submerged, apply 2 coats VS721 BOTTOM COAT™ to fully cured areas below the waterline. Coating the entire hull or pontoon with VS721™ reduces abrasion damage, makes cleaning and maintenance easier, reduces salt attachment and increased durability and longevity.
SAFETY: Wear safety glasses and protect skin from excessive exposure. If splashed in eyes, rinse with water for 10 minutes. If on skin, wash with soap and water.
