Rupes Professional Marine Product Solutions
In this Blog, we will take a look at Marine Polishing with the Rupes LHR21 ES Marine 31 Kit for boat oxidation removal, the LHR 21 MarkII/MAR and the LHR 12E/MAR

When you think about marine polishing, then we have just the product you need. The Rupes LHR 21ES Marine 31 Boat Oxidation Removal Kit is a ground breaking kit that enables you to remove oxidation, yellowing, and surface staining from your boat faster than any other system available. The 21 mm stroke of the Rupes LHR 21ES paired with the correct pads and 31 boat compounds and polishes, will give you the perfect smooth, glossy gel coat required for a great finish. The all-inclusive Rupes Marine 31 kit includes everything you need to polish your boat from start to finish.

The Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher, ensures a perfect finish with its random orbital motion and exceptionally large throw.

One of the biggest advantages of the LHR 21ES is that no swirls or holograms (buffer trails) are instilled into the gel coat as you polish. The Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher will give you that perfect finish you are after, without any swirls or holograms or the risk of burning through the gel coat. WHY?  Because it has the largest stroke of any polisher on the market.

The Rupes BigFoot LHR21 MarkII has extra-large 21 millimeter throw.  This tool features stronger, reinforced housing helping to protect the insides of the machine (just in case you drop it!)

It also features rubber inserts INSIDE the tool which improves handling and  provides a better level of comfort when using it.  The new rubber tool rest on top of the machine allows you to set the polisher down pad-up and not contaminate either your pad or the paint you’re working on.  This machine comes with a 6 inch backing plate.

The Duetto is equally effective working with soft or interface backing pads teamed with micro-abrasives
during the defect correction step or with foam polishing pads and compounds during the polishing
stage. Extensive research on random orbital dynamics and exhaustive testing resulted in the choice of
a 12mm orbit for Duetto. This orbit length greatly improves the surface rectification abilities of the latest
generation of micro-abrasive discs. The combination of Duetto and micro-abrasives is especially effective
when smoothing orange peel or significant defects. The finish generated by this combination is both homogenous and predictable with no deep sanding marks.
