“The Ultimate UV Flexible Paint Coating System for the Marine Industry”


Marine Shield provides a high quality UV protection to marine fabrics. It will reduce the amount of breakdown caused by UV exposure. It is one of the thinnest coatings while still giving one of the highest UV ratings in the world. Our products have been given up to a 5 Year UV Warranty by Resene NZ our licensed manufacturer, after in depth testing at their testing facility.

    • Marine Shield when applied can be up to 300% lighter than other products presently available.
    • Marine Shield provides a hard surface which retains its flexibility and makes the surface easy to clean. It also has a mould inhibiting quality, as mould can cause a rapid deterioration of materials.
    • Marine Shield has an excellent resistance to a variety of chemicals, e.g. oil, diesel, grease, turpentine, etc.
    • Marine Shield has an extensive colour range including fluorescent, pearl, and metallic finishes giving it a unique customised appearance which has not been previously available.

Marine Shield trains all applicators to a high standard.   All Approved Applicators have on-going training, annual reviews and access to technical advice.

Product Testing


Extreme product testing has been independently carried out by Resene New Zealand’s head chemist Dr. Mark Glennie. Marine Shield is designed to withstand the harsh maritime environment and has outperformed all expectations, testing was terminated at 1825 hours as opposed to the planned 3000 hours test because the unprotected fabric was destroyed beyond further testing. The tests were monitored in a QUV Salt Blast cabinet which accelerates the UV process to establish how long the product and the substrate will last in our harsh New Zealand environment. The protected samples were in the cabinet for 1825 hours which is equivalent to 2 years UV exposure in the Southern Hemisphere and approximately 4-5 years in the Northern Hemisphere, without showing any signs of fabric or product breakdown. This is one of the tests that allow our licensed manufacturer to give a minimum 5 year product warranty to Marine Shield. This also gave us the encouragement needed to conduct further research and development of the capabilities of Marine Shield. We believe our product has the highest UV, colour fade, mould, anti-fungi and algae, abrasion and chemical protection capabilities in the world.
