In Topic: Gates SP44 Acrylic port polishing out watermarks

I have already contacted Gates for some advice. I did order the Novus kit, so hopefully I will fix my problems. I will keep you informed.


Thanks for the replied so fare.

Post up a photo if you can of the port but if it is not scratched you should be able to restore it with the Novus but if that does not work well enough you will need some very fine sandpaper, something like 8000-12000 grit paper and then apply the Novus.

Your local Gates dealer will be able to supply you the Novus 2 part polish.

Depending on how bad it is, you may need to sandpaper it first before applying the Novus.

A bit of elbow grease and you will be fine.

I have a Gates SP44 acrylic port which has some watermarks in the glare coating. I know that underwater you won't see it but with curtain angles you will see the marks on your shots.

Can anyone tell me if I can polish this water marks/coating out my port completely.





Are you sure it is acrylic, the glass ports are coated but I don't think the acrylic versions are coated.
​If it is acrylic, use the Novus 2 piece polish to restore it.

Wooo!,That's HI tech!!. Great Idea!

It's pretty cheap insurance really.

The one I use costs $150 to buy so if your bag was lost/stolen, would you pay $150 to get it back?

I know I would and it would make any insurance claim or lost baggage claim very easy to deal with.

I turn on my phone once I leave the plane and check the tracker app while I am walking to the baggage collection and I already know my bag has arrived.

I am going to buy another couple of trackers for my other bags now as the piece of mind is worth the investment alone.
