This stuff is the bomb for getting the latex gaskets back to being supple and pliant after a rough season. But watch out that you don't leave the juice on too long or it will start to weaken the latex.

I used it about every two weeks when I was guiding this summer. It made the wrist and neck gasket easier to put on and stayed dry.

    Comments about 303 Aerospace Protectant:

    We use this on our packrafts, inflatable fishing kayak and paddle boards (just keep it off the area where you stand - it's slippery!) and everything still looks like new after years of heavy use.

    Found several other great uses for this around the house and garage - installed an in ground basketball hoop in the driveway that gets a lot of sun and treat the painted pole, glass backboard and supports every year and it looks as good as the day we installed it after almost 10 years. Also use it on our Thule & Yakima roof boxes as well as Ortlieb bike bags, NRS dry bags, outdoor ping pong table, etc. with same results.

    Far and away pays for itself many, many times over in extended gear life and everything always looks awesome!

              I use it on my drysuit/dry top wrist and neck seals. Had not used my one drysuit in 7 years. Just pulled it out, figuring I'd have to replace the seals. They are in as good shape as when I put the suit away! I'm astounded.... It's easy to apply. I put another dry top away without it, and the seal had to be replace in 3 years. I'm sold.

                  A:

                  We have an E-140 that we use for both whitewater and fishing. We clean
                  it with the Inflatable Boat Cleaner and then 303 it at the end of the
                  season before we pack it away for the winter. It's 15 yrs old and looks
                  like new. We keep a tarp over it on the trailer all summer, but if it
                  was parked in the sun, I would recommend using the 303 a couple times
                  during the season. Be aware though, it makes the raft really slippery!
                  We buy it by the gallon, but I'd estimate it takes 12-16 oz to give the
                  entire boat a good coat.

                  We have a 13 foot whitewater raft and treat it twice a year. The 16 ounce size lasts a couple of years. If you store your raft outside you may want to treat it more often.

                  I use it for the neoprene gaskets on paddle wear. One squirt,about 1
                  teaspoon, seems to about 1sqft. I use it once per month. The instructions
                  say every 6 weeks. the important thing is to use it in the off season as
                  well because it prevents drying, which leads to cracking. the instructions
                  say spray on and wipe off. that will likely work in your application but I
                  spray onto a rag and then wipe on to the surface to protect.

                  I don't know how big your raft is. I guess 16 oz. would be enough for a
                  small raft, but you probably ought to get a 32 oz. container for a large
                  raft. If you have a lot left over, use it like Armor All on your car or
                  truck.

                  David, it should take ~4-6 ounces per application. Apply at least a couple of times a season (AIRE recommends only twice a season for their boats). 303 really does help block harmful UV rays. You can also use it on other gear that spends a lot of time in the sun.

                Has anyone else found their raft extremely slippery after useing this product? I applied it exactly how the directions said to, wiping it dry after 5 minutes. The next several Rafting trips I had people complaining about how slippery the boat was and they were sliding off their seats. This product is a few years old. Could age have caused this problem?

                  Eric,
                  I 303 Protectant a lot on whitewater boats and boating gear (as do most of the boaters I know), especially on rubber drysuit gaskets but also on the bottom of Royalex boats and also on a raft. It does make surfaces significantly slipperier for a time. Age doesn't affect it. It is part of the normal effects of the product. Many of us found this endearing when it came to the outside of our boats, but raft seats would be a different story. The slipperiness does tend to subside after a few uses. Also, it does seem to really protect well against sun damage.

                  A:

                  303 protectant is a preservative for rubber and plastic. You spray it on,
                  allow it to soak in and dry for a few minutes, and wipe off the remaining
                  excess. It is similar to ArmorAll protectant used on automobiles. I use it
                  on dry top gaskets, kayak skirt rubber rim that stretches and holds it onto
                  the cockpit rim, and assorted rubber and plastic items which are exposed to
                  sun, water, and physical abuse.
                  I suggest you contact the company that makes 303. On a pfd, it might be
                  beneficial to treat plastic buckles and snaps with 303. I'm not sure what
                  it might do for the fabric. It might restore or preserve the fabric's water
                  shedding properties but I've never noticed that my pfds have any problems in
                  that area. I've never used 303 or anything else anywhere on my pfds but the
                  solid parts might benefit from a treatment. I'd talk to the manufacturer
                  before putting in on the fabric.
                  FYI I am a private individual and not an outfitter. I do have a lot of
                  rafting and kayaking experience, though. You might consider calling a
                  commercial outfitter like Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC). They own and
                  maintain rafts and conduct raft trips and they own and use hundreds of pfds
                  for their customers.

                  We use 303 on most of our boating gear. It definitely helps slow down
                  the "sun burn" effect on PFDs, straps, tarps, cushions, coolers, rafts
                  and kayaks. The only things we don't use it on are items with DWR water
                  repellent finishes like tents and absorbent fabrics like neoprene and
                  foam (and maybe you can, IDK).

                  303 really makes things slick. I only use it on the outside and top of the shoulder straps on PFDs, to prevent the PFD from slipping up on the person wearing it.

                Q:

                I have a older hypalon inflatable. I have used 303 in the past. How "water proof" is 303? If I put it on the bottom of the tube which sits underwater.
                I'm very interested in your inflatable boat cleaner. Any chance I can get a couple ounces as sample?
                I have purchased patching material in the past...no leaks so far.

                  It is waterproof in that it does not flow off when exposed to water if you
                  let it dry and wipe off the excess. It is not a waterproofing agent.

                  303 is really meant to protect from sun (UV) damage. I spray it on the
                  entire inflatable as I use it as a dinghy ( take it out of the water and
                  store on land frequently. ) I do re-coat the underside once or twice
                  during the summer season and the boat seems to be in better shape for it
                  (compared to others that do not use the 303.)

                  Sue, 303 is a water-based formulation that blocks UV radiation damage and repel stains. Applied correctly it does not readily wash away. Applying it to the bottom of a boat, unless it is being left outside and upside down isn't effective. Using it on your boat will definitely prolong its life. We don't have any sample sizes of the Boat Cleaner. You can see from the reviews that it is a popular product. I use it on my E-150 and think it does a good job of removing frame marks, scuffs and the crud that accumulates. Be sure to apply 303 after using it.

                  I'm really not sure, partly because I have 2 inflatables that are PVC-based instead of Hypalon. Also, I thought the reason I was advised to get the 303 Protectant was to help protect my PVC from degrading from UV light, but maybe it helps with water-proofing as well. In all honesty, I haven't used the stuff as much as I know I should have, so my feedback probably isn't very helpful. It is supposed to be highly recommended though for inflatable boats.

                  I treat ALL of my gear that is exposed to UV with 303 spray. Until this stuff I just assumed everything sun rotted, changed colors and fell apart after a few years. With a couple applications per season my pontoon boats, my fins and pretty much everything else I hit with it, just looks better and lasts longer.
                  I have not seen any damage to gear that I would attribute to 303. I love the stuff!

                  The company says that 303 "provides superior protection against harmful UV rays that can cause loss of mechanical properties such as; discoloration, fading, embrittlement, cracking and/or chalking. Treated surfaces repel dirt, soiling, staining, water spots, salt water and mildew." At one point in their literature they recommend against using it on "fabrics (canvas)". However, we know of outfitters who use it on their life jackets, seemingly with no problems.

                  to one you would use for bug spray or weed killer. Maybe use a sponge mop to
                  work it in. This stuff is great and in my opinion superior to other
                  protectants. I used about a half a gallon on my 18ft Sotar boat. I think the
                  rubber roof of a 5th wheel might absorb the protectant a bit more than the
                  slick finish on a raft.

                  Just get the gallon.  You'll want to reapply after rain, and there are a million other uses for this, so you can never have too much.  The smallest size would probably cover the job once, and maybe even twice, depending on how much the material absorbs the 303.
                  I apply to canoes and car trim with small (4" diameter) thin car buff pads.  For something that big, you might want a larger one or even use a towel.  Don't use too thick an applicator or you will waste 303.  Rub it in to the surface as you go, rather than spraying the whole thing then wiping it in, as it can leave spots if not evenly applied.

                  I don't know, but it is more for protecting things like clothing from sun.. Your kayak can withstand a couple decades of sun no problem, but it would probably keep it from fading if it works on plastic. Seems like overkill, but if you plan on keeping it for twenty years it may help.

                  Using 303 won't hurt…although I question how long it remains on the surface of the boat once it gets wet. I've used it on roto-mold plastic & kevlar-carbon fiber kayaks, as well as my epoxy waveski with no problems or issues. It does make them look great…beyond that, I can't say.

                  I would say yes. The manufacture recommends it for all different kinds of

                  natural rubbers, etc.
                  They also recommend it on leather, fiberglass, chrome, and aluminium. I
                  don't see any warnings about any polymers that you shouldn't use it on. It
                  should help with UV breakdown, especially for boats stored outside.
                  ...this is my read of their website nothing more, have a look and happy
