Here is the first of 2 video’s where I look to see if there’s any truth to the belief that polyester based materials (such as gelcoat) won’t bond to epoxy. It’s been long believed that if you were using epoxy for your fiberglass repairs, you were more or less limited to having to use paint as your topcoat. Over the years I’ve “broken the rules” on occasion and to date have not had any issues using gelcoat as my topcoat over epoxy. I’m not saying…
The last video of this series! Here I cover a great product from Pettit Paint! Their barrier coat system called Pettit Protect. An easy to use protective system that helps prevent the formation of blisters in the fiberglass. You can find more information on this product HERE… This system is mixed 3:1 (3 parts base to 1 part catalyst) and if needed can be thinned up to 10% overall volume with Pettit 97 Epoxy Thinner to help with rolling the material out a bit smoother….
Finally fairing the rudder in using a great new product from Pettit Marine; EZ-Fair! More details on this video coming over the next couple days 🙂
