With the advances that have been made in the last ten years in laminated sailcloth and sail handling systems, it would be a shame to not be able to take advantage of these advancing technologies because we could not get a foot hold on mildew growth.
We have now developed a technology that attacks and resists mildew at the growth stages. Over the past few years, there have been a few topical solutions that have proven to be either ineffective or had a very short effective life span or both.
SAILKOTE Plus is specially formulated with Dupont Krytox®, an easily applied environmentally friendly translucent liquid lubricant specifically designed for marine use. It is a derivative of McLube, with an anti-mildew additive that fights mildew before it starts.
It dries quickly to a hard, smooth, ultra-slick, hydrophobic dry coating that bonds tenaciously to almost any surface. And because SAILKOTE Plus is a dry lubricant, it will not attract dirt or contaminants and will not transfer to other surfaces.
SAILKOTE Plus will severely limit, if not ILLIMINATE, the growth of mildew on your sails and, depending on use, need not be re-applied any sooner than every 4-5 years.
