How to Apply
HOW TO APPLY AQUAGARD AQUA-GLOSS WATER-BASED MARINE ENAMEL
APPLICATION: Brush or Roller
NUMBER OF COATS: 1-2 (Additional coat at waterline)
- If the paint on the bottom of your boat is flaking, you should get a scraper and remove all loose flakes.
- If the paint on the bottom of your boat is in poor condition, consider using a paint stripper and removing the old layer completely.
Remember: The adhesion of the new paint is only as good as the paint it is being applied over. Watch for signs of adhesion failure.
- If your bottom paint is in good condition, you really only need to sand it a little with 80-grit sandpaper (you can use a finish sander or a random orbital sander), clean it up, tape it off and roll on another coat.
- Clean the hull surface thoroughly with de-waxing solvent and plenty of clean rags.
- Sand the de-waxed hull lightly with 80-grit paper.
- Wipe down the area again to remove all sanding residue.
- Apply Primer. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for primer application.
Mixing the Paint
- If you have a pain shaker, run it for at least 5 minutes to get the pigment evenly distributed.
- Each time you add to your roller tray you will want to stir again to ensure consistency.
Applying the Paint
- Roll the paint onto the hull using a short-nap roller cover (usually 3/8 nap).
Note: Don’t add any thinner to the bottom paint unless the manufacturer specifies otherwise. Be sure to stir the paint before refilling the paint tray.
- Check the specifications of the paint you are using. A second coat is usually recommended and will increase the life of almost any paint.
- No sanding or other prep is needed between coats.
