Original coating for your kite Your kite is treated with a coating. This coating gives it its snappy finish. More importantly, the coating gives the sail stability (shape-retention). Without this coating the threads would be more inclined to slacken. (Think of an old tea cloth). Using the correct coating, those threads become 'glued' together. This improves shape-retention (stability).
Has your kite become slack, vulnerable and wet? Over time, the original coating on the sail will suffer wear and tear as a result of flapping, folding, UV-radiation, salt water, sand, etc. The sail will feel less firm, will lose its shape and retain more water. It will also become more prone to mould and dirt.
Your kite "as good as new" again With the Ultramar Kite-Refit Coating you will be able to make your kite as good as new again. After treatment, the kite will snap and crackle like it used to and be perfectly water-repellent. The sail will be more airtight, will keep its shape and will be much more stable diagonally.
Lighter, drier, more airtight The Kite-Refit Coating will keep your kite dry. The sail will retain less water. This will make the kite a lot lighter. It will also make it more airtight.
Making waterstarting easier Older kites tend to stay wet longer. Not only are they heavier, they tend to 'stick' to the water or to itself. This makes waterstarting a lot more difficult. With the Ultramar Kite-Refit Coating the kite and the lines remain dry, which makes waterstarting a whole lot easier.
Protect your new kite Ultramar's Kite-Refit Coating provides excellent protection for new kites. The sail will be better protected against UV-radiation, dirty water, salt crystals, wear and tear and mould. It even makes new kites more water-repellent.
