Quick Overview

Kevlar Shield Skid Plates. Protects the bow of small boats and canoes

Details

Protect your canoe, kayak etc with a Kevlar Shield Skid Plate.

It's almost bullet proof!

 

Installing Kevlar® Felt Canoe Skid Plates is a simple and extremely effective way to protect both the bow and stern of your canoe, kayak or boat from shoreline scrapes and strikes on submerged rocks.

Skid Plates offer excellent cut and abrasion resistance to protect water craft from impact and wear.


Kevlar® Felt Canoe Skid Plates are made from 100% para-aramid needle felt. Each Skid Plate is yellow in color and tapered from 4 inches to 2 .5 inches wide along a 30 inch length.


Kit comprises of
2 x 8oz Mud-skipper Shield Part A and 1x 8oz part B
2 Kevlar Skid Plates
1 sheet 120 grit sandpaper

You will need  a chip brush 1 or 2”, masking tape roll.

Instructions for installation.

For Polyethylene canoes: A propane torch is required.
Lay the Kevlar strip into position and mark a line approx 1” around it.  
Then light the torch and adjust the flame to a 1” long blue central cone.
LIGHTLY and quickly run the flame over the entire marked area.
If the plastic becomes shiny, you are moving too slowly.
This process will burn off the oils in the plastic, which would otherwise interfere with the adhesion.

Lay the Skid plate onto the canoe and mask up around it leaving a 1” gap all around the sides.
On each end allow approximately 2” because the Kevlar can stretch a little.

Sand the area thoroughly, especially the edges, with an 80 grit paper to dull the surface and rough it up.

Mix up 2 teaspoons of Part A to 1 teaspoon part B and paint that onto the area previously masked up.

Remove the skid plate and paint a thin layer of the mixed resin onto the surface inside the masked area.
Leave this to setup for approximately 30 minutes to one hour, depending on the temperature.
You need it to be sticky, not runny.
Take the Skid plate and lay it carefully onto the resin, and then rub it into the resin with a gloved hand.
Work from the center to the sides, to remove any bubbles,
Avoid working from end to end as this will stretch the material.
You may also place a piece of polyethylene sheet on the Kevlar to aid in smoothing out.
Once you are satisfied with the result, leave the job to set up a little further (at least an hour), checking
occasionally to ensure all areas are firmly stuck down.

When applying the final coat, you want the skid plate to be fairly well stuck down,
so as you do not move it with your brush.
Once you have finished applying the final coat, remove the masking tape carefully.

Let the job harden off for at least a day at 70 degrees, (Longer if cooler) before putting into service.
