Product Description

Gelcoat With Wax (for Finishing)

  • Contains wax so additional patch aid additives are not required
  • Cures properly without PVA, wax paper, or special tools
  • Non-sagging formula fills superficial scratches. Deeper scratches require a filler such as TotalBoat Silica Thickener added to the gelcoat.
  • Can be mixed with coloring agents made specifically for polyesters (sold separately)
  • Catalyst: MEKP (methyl ethyl ketone peroxide), included
  • Colors: Available in Neutral and White
  • Sizes: Neutral is available in a Quart size Kit only; White is available in Quart and Gallon size Kits, and 5-Gallon size (resin & MEKP only)
  • Each Quart and Gallon size Kit order includes: 1 QT size plastic mixing pot, 1 10" wooden stir stick, and 1 pair of large, powder-free latex gloves.

Not all gelcoats are created equal

Our premium, high-viscosity marine gelcoat is non-sagging, and super strong. In fact, its ISO/NPG (Isophthalic/Neopentyl Glycol) resins are considerably more durable than standard, orthophthalic resin formulas. TotalBoat gelcoat can be colored prior to adding catalyst. Adding color to Neutral gelcoat produces bold or dark colors; adding color to a white gelcoat creates lighter, pastel colors.

Gel time depends on amount of catalyst admixed

Adjust the catalyst level to slow down or speed up gel time. Cooler temperatures may require a higher percentage of catalyst than warmer temperature conditions.

Proper catalyzation is imperative for proper cure when using polyester. The higher the percentage of hardener, the faster the gelcoat will dry. Because air and surface temperatures also affect the drying of gelcoat, take care not to over-catalyze or under-catalyze. Do not add less than 1% catalyst or greater than 3% catalyst. We recommend a trial batch to determine final catalyst ratio.

Specifications:

  • Application: Spray, brush, or roll. Spraying tends to yield the best results with the least amount of sanding after curing.
  • Application Temperature: 70-95°F
  • Thinning: Styrene thinner. Acetone is not recommended as it can cause yellowing, orange peel, and other detrimental results.
  • IMPORTANT! Do not apply TotalBoat Gelcoat directly on TotalBoat TotalFair Epoxy Fairing Compound. Gelcoat should not be applied directly over TotalFair or the gelcoat will not cure properly. Instead, apply TotalBoat 2-Part Epoxy Primer or TotalBoat TotalProtect Epoxy Barrier Coat Primer over TotalFair, before applying Gelcoat. Primers are sold separately.
