Wood rots – steel rusts – GFK gets osmosis. Whereas in wood and steel it usually takes some time, osmosis can occur on fiberglass hulls at any time. As a rule, risk factor is: the warmer the ambient fluid, the lower the density, the greater the risk of osmosis. This explains why the risk of osmosis in the Mediterranean is about twice as large as in Baltic and North Sea – and in the Caribbean twice as large as in the Mediterranean.
The manufacturing process decides whether a fiberglass boat gets osmosis or not. The reason are small bubbles between laminate and gelcoat that may arise during production. These bubbles fill with time with water molecules, the bubble grows and the gel coat stands out from the laminate. If the process is not stopped in time, the entire laminate can be affected and may become unstable in the extreme.
Identified early, osmosis can, however, be stopped with modern techniques and materials. For this purpose, the affected gelcoat is removed and rebuilt with a substitute. This requieres several operations. This work is our daily bread, we have plenty of experience with it. An osmosis ckeck therefore is part of our standard program.
Don’t believe self-proclaimed hobby specialists scaring you with rumors that osmosis is the death of your yacht. It is only important that the first signs of osmosis to be detected in time, before major damage occurs – and that it is treated consistently and professionally.
