    Hi all, has anyone any experience of speedcoat. My shower tray needs repairing and have just found their website. They offer a lifetime guarantee. All comments welcome. Thanks

    Sorry I have no experience with the product, but it looks interesting.

    http://speedcoateuro.com/

    Hope the link works (y) for those wondering (like me) what it was.

    We had ours repaired by spinney Motorhomes
    Great job done still cheaper than replacing with new tray that is going to break again and the bonus of a lifetime guarantee

    I had a go water skiing behind one once. It was very fast, but not all that big. I suppose your talking about a much larger boat if it has a shower.:)

    Trays fail due to not being supported properly, I really can't see how spraying on gunge to a failed tray is a good repair.

    the coating they use was designed to be impact resistant and elastic to be used as bed liner. stress cracks generally only move a few millimetre so easily absorbed by the elastic properties of the coating
    only downside is they charge silly money knowing its cheaper than a new tray plus fitting. you can buy the same product in spray cans for about £10

    makes sense.. it was as you say popular with pick up trucks when I ran them...

    chap that repaired my sink last week does shower trays as well but he is in Portsmouth and only goes as far as south London..

    fits speedcoat agent wanted £350 + the dreaded. this chap did it for £150 at my home

    if you can remove the tray I would have a go myself. using plastic weld or a soldering iron for the crack then a few costs of spray for finish. maybe support underneath with expanding foam or something when refitting?

    I put a smear of bathroom sealant over mine as a temporary fix three years ago...

    When that fails I shall put a bit of glass fibre mat over it for a more permanent job...

    various it's produced by several companies. I have a couple of cans in the garage so will check tomorrow. but a search for bed liner, pool paint or pond paint will give various options
