MEGAWARE KEELGUARD PATENTED ENGINEERING
EXPERTS IN PROTECTING YOUR WATERCRAFT
Every aspect of the patented Megaware KeelGuard has been developed with boat designers and 3M engineers. Many factors contribute to its success, such as:
A precise, abrasive-resistant blend of polymers and urethanes to achieve optimal durability and pliability.
Pressure-sensitive 3M adhesive creates strength, while permanently bonding and sealing the Megaware KeelGuard contoured edges to the hull surface.
Angled grooves produce hydrodynamic channels, creating air pockets and providing a slicker surface.
Machine-tapered ends aid in the reduction of drag or snagging.
The perfect combination of these factors makes the Megaware KeelGuard the easiest keel protector to install, providing unparalleled quality and dependability.
EASY DO-IT-YOURSELF APPLICATION IN 4 BASIC STEPS*
Etch the surface where the KeelGuard is to be installed with the 3M Scotch-Brite pad provided. Any fiberglass mold release agents and wax must be removed.
This step is extremely important and must be done thoroughly so the the full bonding qualities of the 3M adhesive can be realized.
Thoroughly clean the area with isopropyl alcohol using paper towels or a clean rag. Repeat until there is no sign of residue.
Apply a thin coat of the 3M primer provided in the kit. The Primer interacts with the adhesive to create an instant bond that eliminates the need for any additional curing time.
The 3M adhesive has a red protective liner that has been scored down the center to aid in centering of the guard. Pull back the liner and use the patented burnishing tool provided in the kit to apply pressure.
You are now finished and ready to enjoy boating.
*The KeelGuard is a very simple product to install; however, the Application Instructions contained in the package must be STRICTLY followed in order to not compromise the full bonding capabilities of the 3M adhesive.
Choose From 11 Good Looking Colors to Match Any Boat. All Colors are UV-Stabilized for True Color that Lasts.
Available in 9 Standard Length Kits From 4-12ft. For Extra Protection, Choose a Longer KeelGuard.
In order to achieve the full bonding capabilities of the 3M adhesive, the Application Instructions contained in the KeelGuard kit must be followed STRICTLY and THOROUGHLY. Any shortcuts or missed steps will compromise and jeopardize the 3M adhesive and will result in product failure.
It is important to have a good solid surface before you begin the installation process. The adhesive bond is only as good as the surface to which it is applied to. Severe damage to your boats keel, repairs that have not been done professionally, or any paint or gelcoat that is not properly bonded to the boat's original surface can cause separation of the KeelGuard, taking any loose or improperly prepared paint or gelcoat with it.
3M recommends the adhesive should NOT be applied when the temperature of the boat hull is below 65°F or above 100°F. If possible, bring your boat into a warm shop/garage and give it sufficient time to rise to an acceptable temperature. It is also important that the KeelGuard and the boat hull are at the same temperature during the application process. Do not install the KeelGuard on a hot day. The 3M adhesive will not adhere to the surface of the boat.
The KeelGuard should be mounted at least 4-6 in. ABOVE the waterline on the bow, and extend 2-3 in. beyond the lowest point of the keel. Please refer to the chart above for the recommended length of your KeelGuard.
A KeelGuard is NOT RECOMMENDED in the following applications:
If your trailer is designed with the boat resting on center rollers or a support beam along the keel. This will compromise the adhesive bondresulting in product failure. If you can lower the rollers or raise the side bunks so the boat is not resting on rollers or support beams, then the KeelGuard adhesive bond will not be compromised.
On aluminum boats designed with a raised reinforced center rib that protrudes, has large rivets on the center keel, or any hull design where a full surface bond is unachievable.
On hulls with a non-standard V-shape, or with aggressive complex angles or curves. This is found on canoes, kayaks, pontoons, catamarans, some boats and modern PWC (personal watercraft) such as Jet Skis.
On vessels made from LSE (low surface energy) plastics, such as polypropylene and polyethylene. This is found on Kayaks, canoes and some personal watercraft (PWC) or Jet Skis. The 3M adhesive will not adhere to this kind of material.
On boats that use a floating or drive on dock where the entire weight of the boat rests on the keel or where the rear of the guard could snag on the dock during launching.
