How to Apply Toon-Brite Protective Clear Coat

Toon-Brite Protective Clear Coat can be applied to aluminum, fiberglass, stainless steel, brass, copper, and galvanized steel. All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of all contaminants (especially waxes, grease, & oils) prior to application.

Coverage: One quart will cover approx. 200-300 sq. ft.

Surface Preparation

  • Metal
    • Thoroughly clean surface with an acid wash.
    • Once the surface has been properly cleaned, test the surface for adhesion by applying Clear-Coat to a small area and observe for 5 minutes.
    • If the coating stays flat and flows out, the surface is adequately clean.
    • If beading occurs, re-clean.
    • Once surface is properly cleaned, apply 2 coats (or more) of Toon-Brite Clear Coat.
  • Fiberglass
    • Thoroughly clean the surface of oxidation, wax, and polish.
    • For heavy build up, use Toon-Brite Fiberglass Cleaner.
    • Apply Toon-Brite Clear Coat. Multiple coats may be necessary.
    • Follow up with fiberglass polish then wax.

Application Information

  • Provide adequate ventilation when applying Clear Coat and remove all sources of ignition or spark.
  • To apply by hand, use a 3" or 4" foam applicator.
  • To apply by spray, Toon-Brite recommends using a HVLP paint gun. If needed, dilute with acetone.
  • Apply to the surface in long even strokes being careful not to let runs or sags develop.
  • Make sure to overlap each pass.
  • The surface temperature should be above 50°F. Do not apply when humidity is above 85%.
  • For applications requiring multiple coats, the preceding coat should be dry to the touch.
  • Allow at least 8 - 24 hours to cure.

Clean up can be done with soap and water for hands. Use acetone or lacquer thinner for Clear-Coat clean up.

Toon-brite Protective Clear-Coat FAQ’s

Q: What type of surface will Clear-Coat work on?

  • A: Clear-coat can be applied to Aluminum, Fiberglass, Copper, Brass, Stainless Steel, or any other surface you want to prevent from staining and discoloring.

Q: Can you see Clear-Coat once it’s applied?

  • A: Clear-coat is virtually invisible on all surfaces other than a high polished surface. On a high polish finish, Clear-coat when wiped can sometimes leave slight sheen. This will some what lessen with a second coat and it also tends to diminish with time.

Q: Will Clear-Coat work on painted surfaces?

  • A: Yes, Clear-coat can be applied to dull painted surfaces that are beginning to get chalky and oxidized. Clear-coat will prevent the chalky finish from returning as well as bring back a rich shiny finish.

Q: What will Clear-Coat protect against?

  • A: Clear-coat will protect your surfaces from Oxidation, Stains, Weathering, Salt Spray, UV Rays, Corrosion and Electrolysis.

Q: How long will the average application last?

  • A: On boats that are kept on the trailer, or on a lift, it’s not uncommon to get 3 to 4 years of protection, If you leave your boat in the slip all season long, from the water line down, it should last a couple of years or more. There are just too many variables such as water conditions and content, as well as severity of marine growth etc. But from the water line up, you can expect the same protection as any other boat. On things like RV’s ECT., you can expect 3 to 4 years.

Q: What temperature is it safe to apply Clear-Coat?

  • A: Clear-coat can be applied at any temperature but, you’ll get a better finish at 50 degrees, than at 90 degrees.

Q: Can I apply Clear-Coat in the sun?

  • A: Yes you can, but try to avoid direct sunlight if at all possible.

Q: What is “Cure Time”?

  • A: Although Clear-coat dries to the touch in about 15 minutes, it takes as little as 2 or 3 hours, or as long as 24 hours depending on temperature and humidity.

Q: Do I need to remove the first Clear-coat application before I reapply years later?

  • A: No, All you need to do is clean with Toon-brite, Aluminum or Fiberglass Cleaner, and apply the new coat.
