When you do boat repair, and work in a marine environment, you will often
find your tools encountering fresh water, salt water, and chemicals. Nylon
panel poppers and pry tools are a must have.
The covered wood and fiberglass panels are meant to stand firm, but they
must come off for the repairman to complete his job. Most boat panels are
made of vinyl covered fiberglass or wood, which can mar and tear easily.
Prylon tools can help reduce damages to customer boats when used
properly by up to 95% over similar marketplace tool sets. How is this done?
FRN and FRP tools from Prylon.
FRN, or Fiber Reinforced Nylon, is a composite material consisting of a
strong fibrous backbone,mixed with a flexible non marring nylon. The result
is an insanely strong, semi flexible tool. These have the power to work free
some of the boating industries toughest panel retaining clips, without
damaging the exposed gel coated panels they are attached to.
FRP, or Fiber Reinforced Plastic, is very similar to FRN in it's design as a
composite. Much smoother to the touch then FRN and generally has a more
refined glossy finish too. Some of the benefits of FRP over FRN is it's price -
plastic is cheaper then nylon to produce, and the cost saving s are passed
to you. Lighter weight tools are ideal for light industry use where precision
demands are made for long periods of time. Also, they are extremely easy
to reshape if damaged.
Boat repairmen have to depend on their tools all day, every day, in very
high pressure situations. To replace a dented or scarred up cover, or repair
a damaged gel coat surface can run hundreds of dollars! That's why they
choose Prylon. Spend a little, get a lot.
