Can I sand the awlgrip and apply over the epoxy paint? Normally you could apply Awlgrip over primed gel coat. Usually gel coat should go over other polyester resin or gel coat for good adhesion. I wouldn't recommend putting gel coat over awlgrip. No it cannot be used over epoxy. I messed up and used 2-part epoxy fillersto fill small voids and smoothing out the bottom and polyester gelcoat willnot sure over these areas.
I have tried all the tips and tricks and wasnot successful. I will probably try epoxy resin gelcoat with tint to coatmy boat.
These gelcoats can be used on top of epoxy as well as polyester resins for cosmetic repairs, but it must be properly and thoroughly cured. We have found that for larger scale work than small cosmetic repairs, using an epoxy barrier coat or tie coat before gel coating improves the adhesion. Yes you could, no need to seal out moisture as it air drys.
Ad heat from heat gun to speed up process. In short, this product can work for you, but you may prefer non-waxed gelcoat, depending upon your repair approach. The air-dry gelcoat can be applied to the crack using a wooden mixing Popsicle stick.
A stick is easier and cheaper to use than a syringe. If the gelcoat color doesn't match your existing gelcoat, the repairs may be more visible than you would like. Regardless of whether you use this product or a non-waxed gelcoat for this approach, I would recommend filling the cracks before you apply the new gelcoat layer over the entire surface, otherwise you will likely have low places where the cracks were ground out. My larger plan was to use it for the entire non-skid area on our decks, and this was a limited area where I could try the approach.
I tried a small roller and I tried brushing it on, but had the best result stippling the gelcoat with a brush; that helped get it into the texture of the nonskid. Unfortunately, I needed a second coat and, after that found that I hadn't covered one area heavily enough, so had to add more there. With this air-dry product, I had to again dewax with solvent and abrade the surface before each additional coat of gelcoat. I still have to do the side decks and will be using non-waxed gelcoat for that.
You can V out the spider cracks and crazing with a dremmel or similar tool, and fill them with gelcoat, but depending on the root cause of the cracks, it may only be a temporary cosmetic repair. We are able to get most colored gelcoats without wax as well.
Oyster White without wax is regularly in stock here. The colored gelcoats match the Awlgrip color pallet. Still, I'd order the necessary tints to go along with your order to get the best match. Oyster white was the closest match for my Dolphin 24, but I got yellow, brown and white tints to fine tune the match for my application. The colors are close to the standard Awlgrip colors. You could call to have a color card mailed to you.
If the gel coat is set then you must wait for it to cure, sand and clean before next application. It usually sets fairly quickly so it's not like you have to wait a long time. This is gelcoat which is used to fill and repair scratches in existing color. If you are repainting then I don't know if this is the best way to go. I'm just a boat owner and have never repainted a boat so I don't know the right answer.
Josh,Gelcoat may not be the best product for your project. I'd suggest looking at 1 part or 2 part epoxy paints. Mask between colors with a good quality tape for the two tone paint scheme you desire. The colored gel coats at Jamestown match the Awlgrip color chart. I got one from Jamestown several years ago. Still, I'd plan on getting tints the small tubes of colorant: Adjust the tint on a small amount of uncatalized gelcoat, put a dab near the area you're trying to match and wipe it off and readjust if you're not happy with the color.
Keep track of how many drops of tint you add so you can replicate in in a larger batch if necessary. If the scratches aren't too deep, you can sand the entire area to blend fair, clean and dewax, then use a preval sprayer to touch up the entire area.
You may need several coats to cover and with air dry gel coat, you'll need to lightly sand between coats. You'll want to order styrene as a thinner for spraying, acetone as a cleaner and white, yellow and brown gel coat coloring agents to fine tune the color match to your boat. Adjust the colors to un-catalyzed gel coat, put a dab on your boat and check for color match.
If not right, wipe off with acetone, adjust the color and try again. If they're deep grooves it'll fill them like putty if you apply it correctly which is not easy but will hardly be noticeable if you get the color match correct.
If they're shallow try sanding them out and buffing step 4 only. Had done some major repairs to my old fiberglass dinghy. Brush applied this gelcoat to the interior of the dinghy.
Cured hard everywhere, looks great. Should last far longer than paint. Has always preformed well for me. I use it a lot on touch ups as my base color, a little picky on mix but is good. I have an old fiberglass canoe. We did an excellent repair, sand, prep job on it and used this is claret red on the canoe.
