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

On Fiberglass surfaces, it’s also a GREAT color restorer.
Q: Will Clear-Coat work on painted surfaces?
A: Yes, Clear-coat can be applied to dull painted fiberglass 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: Will Sunlight cause Clear-Coat to yellow?
A: NO! Clear-coat will never yellow or discolor.
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: Will Clear-Coat keeps Moss and Algae from growing on my boat hull?
A: No!!! Clear-coat is not Anti- Fouling bottom paint.
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 4 to 6 years of protection, if you leave your boat in the slip all season long, from the water line down, it should last 3-4 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 other things, you can expect 3 to 4 years.
Q: How do I apply Clear-Coat?
A: Clear-coat can be applied by Spraying with HVLP Paint Gun or 3-4” black Foam Brush, depending on the surface texture and desired finish. Generally speaking, for the smoothest finish, the preferred method is to Spray.
For Dealers or Manufactures, Clear-coat can be sprayed using HVLP Paint gun. Dilute with acetone if necessary.
NOTE: For Smaller jobs or touch-up, we offer Clear-coat Aerosol (12 oz) Can.
Q: How do I prep surface?
A: A: We recommend using our Toon-brite, Aluminum or Fiberglass cleaners for heavy cleaning. Note: If using on a new surface or simple oxidation, just wipe down good with acetone. Test on small area, if no signs of beading occur, (surface is prepped)
Q: How much of an area will 1 gallon cover?
A: Around 800-1,200 square feet. In boat terms, 2 coats on a 24 ft, you’ll use around 3/4 gallon. Clear-coat is also available in 64oz / Quart.
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 above 50 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: Should I put a second coat on?
A: Although not required, we strongly recommend at least two coats. Clear-coat is a clear liquid; it’s very easy to miss spots. With a second coat, it’s virtually impossible to miss the same spot twice.
Q: How soon can I put a second coat on?
A: You can put a second coat on usually within the hour; however, it’s better if you’ll allow the Clear-coat to “Cure” first before a second coat.
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.
Q: Is Clear-coat tint-able?
A: Yes, it can be tinted. You will have to use an industrial colorant, ONLY available at actual paint stores. It’s called 844 colorants. The store should be willing to tint it for a fee.
NOTE: Aluminum Cleaner & Clear-coat is available as a kit.
