Tim Weinzirl grew up boating on the Colorado River and Arizona’s Lake Havasu. So it’s fitting that his company, Performance Boat Candy, is set to unveil its newly developed boat restoration products—Crystal Cut Compound and Crystal Cut Extreme Compound—at the Lake Havasu Boat Show and Desert Storm Poker Run events later this month. To demonstrate the effectiveness of its new products, Performance Boat Candy also will have a 34-year-old boat on display.
According to a press release, the new compounds incorporate the company’s advanced proprietary DCT2 (Diminishing Cutting Technology) formula designed to quickly remove oxidation, swirl marks, UV damage and scratches while producing a uniform high-gloss finish. The Crystal Cut Compound removes 1500-grit sanding marks while the Crystal Cut Extreme Compound removes 1000-grit sanding marks and, according to Weinzirl, has replaced the need for color sanding in certain applications when used with rotary or dual-action polishers.
“Our DCT2 formula was tested by some of the most skilled detailers we know on everything from pleasure boats to high-end yachts, and everyone involved is excited with the results,” Weinzirl said in the release. “A lot of customers from around the country told us they needed a product that removed oxidation buildup on their aging boats. It was simply a function of listening to our customers and developing products they want, not developing products we hope they need—this is critical, especially when entering a market that’s traditionally been dominated by companies such as 3M.”
The company also has a boat care system dubbed “The Performance Boat Candy Advantage,” which includes its professional-grade products, proper tools and expert techniques to help boaters restore and care for the finish of their boat.
“The PBC Advantage packages everything the average owner needs to restore and protect their finish and makes it easy for even novice boat owners to get a professional result,” said Weinzirl, adding that he’s planning to shoot a series of videos at the end of April to explain the step-by-step process that takes the mystery out of restoration.
The videos will be available on the company’s website, and Weinzirl said he’s even introduced a series of professional tools on the site to complement the products that can be purchased online. The new Crystal Cut Compound and Crystal Cut Extreme Compound start at $22.95 for a 16-ounce bottle. Gallon-size bottles are also available for $139.95.
