Water park ride surfaces are subjected to some of the most brutal conditions in the amusement industry. From harsh UV exposure, submersion in chlorinated water, and near constant guest traffic during peak season, it’s no wonder these rides end up looking so tired and worn out!
A key component to maintaining not only a water slide’s aesthetic appeal, but also it’s functional integrity – comes from the regular inspection and restoration of worn out fiberglass surfaces, via gel coating.
From sand-blasting and stripping off previously applied coatings along with the original top layer of factory finish, to properly cleaning and preparing the surface for it’s new top coat, there are many important steps required in order to achieve a beautiful and long lasting finish that can proudly be displayed for years to come.
