System X Marine coating on a yacht

Marine Coatings

Ready for superior protection?

System X ceramic protection by Element 119 is the world's most trusted marine coating, delivering exceptional marine protection from damaging UV rays, salt spray, temperature extremes, and pollution.

Shine, brilliance & protection for
your boat or yacht

Whether at sea or the dock, System X preserves the fiberglass and painted areas on your boat or yacht, above and below water. System X is the latest in ceramic technology, not a clear bra, wax, polish, or typical paint sealant. This new coating exhibits outstanding resistance to salt water, friction, and solvents.

System X seals, protects, and bonds to all painted marine surfaces, including composites. A breakthrough in marine protection technology, System X is a semi-permanent ceramic coating that bonds directly with gelcoat.

Depending on the size of your marine craft, the coating is easily applied by hand or HVLP to your boat, yacht, or ship to provide long-term shine and protection.

UV Protection

System X marine ceramic protection provides maximum UV ray protection for paint, gelcoat, and stainless steel to prevent unsightly damage associated with aging and fading colors.

A Shield Against Corrosives

From salt and exhaust to oxidation and sea life contaminants, the marine environment is unforgiving. System X marine treats surfaces like metal and gelcoat with water-resistant properties that prevent spotting and make cleaning fast and easy.

High Gloss

System X imparts a high gloss and brings out the full luster and sheen of your boat’s finish. Through its hydrophobic properties, you’re assured cleaning can be done easily without the use of abrasive chemicals and detergents.

Highest Degree of Hardness

System X marine ceramic protection registers over 9H on the industry’s hardness scale, equating to a coating hardness that provides an exceptional level of paint protection.

System X is a semi-permanent coating that actually becomes the functional surface of your craft’s hull and other paintwork. By creating an inseparable bond on a molecular level with your surface, you get a coating that cannot be washed off like a wax or sealant.

System X acts as a clear coat, which provides increased protection against the elements. This new clear coating is glossier, chemical resistant, and harder than the original paint, providing incredible protection against salt water, minor scratches, swirl marks, acid rain, bird droppings, and UV rays.

This coating doesn’t just form a sacrificial shield of protection like other products. Instead, it bonds into your gelcoat or metal surface, creating a semi-permanent shell. This shell provides a very easy-to-clean barrier against the adherence of contaminants. System X paint protection can be applied to the entire exterior of your vessel, except rubber and soft plastic.

Testing has shown System X coating to be extremely resilient to salt water, weathering, and general wear and tear. View the Saltwater Submersion Test to see how System X can protect your boat from the ocean’s salt water.

What if you need to paint or touch up your paintwork? No problem. Since System X is only a couple of microns thick, you can polish or compound the coating off before completing these tasks.
