application guide

Protective clothing is always a good idea even though this is a solvent free epoxy coating. Some people have a resin allergy or sensitivity. Coveralls, rubber or latex gloves and eye protection are a must. A face mask or respirator may be needed if you are sanding and removing old paint. Please refer to the MSDS, available by request.

There are different application processes for different substrates, wood, aluminum, steel, concrete and fiberglass. All old paint needs to be removed, the  hull sanded to 80 grit, washed with acetone and then white vinegar. let dry. New F/G hulls need to be de-waxed with acetone and sanded. NEVER  USE A TACK RAG. A primer might be need for metals and wood. Please call.1 206-517-2611  EXT 1 or email
Double tape your waterline to ease the edge. Be sure to remove the tape before the Aquaply M cures. The product should be warm, room temp, for application. Keep product out of direct sunlight.
Epoxy grade rollers will work best. Have rags and either acetone or lacquer thinner handy for clean up.
  • Prep the boat per substrate.
  • call for proper techniques.
  • Open parts A and B and examine. Stir each part individually using clean stir sticks for small amounts or electric mixer. Do not cross contaminate.
  • Mix equal amounts by volume parts A and B. Stir well. Do not mix more than you can use in 15 minutes. Pour product out into roller tray.
  • Roll on hull in a vertical motion, fore to aft.
  • Allow first coat to tack (thumb print tacky) before recoating. Recoat as needed.
  • Watch for sags or drips and use a tap brush to smooth these out. A dry foam brush works well. Remove tape.
  • Stand back and admire your work. Good job.
  • Let it cure for 24-48 hours, then you may launch. It will continue to cure underwater.
  • Careful when you sling the boat, its slickery.

Hull maintenance will depend on many factors.
  • Location
  • Activity
  • Salt or fresh water
  • Race or cruise
  • Esthetics
  • Diver availability
Only you the boat owner can determine how frequently your hull needs to be cleaned, a good rule of thumb, when it looks crummy, clean it. Use a soft cloth, brush or burlap to remove marine growth. Don't let it go too long, it will be more difficult to...

 You might be able to work out a cleaning schedule with your boatyard.

There are tools for the owner cleaner, Skipper Pro for example.

Peelaway is an excellent product for paint removal.

You might be allergic to resins, always wash any body part with warm soap and water after exposure. Vaseline works well to remove cured epoxy from skin.

Please call or email if you have any questions, someone is on call to take your call.
