Mixing Instructions:
The gelcoat you are buying is an Isophthalic, NPG gelcoat with wax additive for an air dry post applied application. Mixing instruction depends on the temperature and preferable dry times. The higher percentage of catalyst the faster it will dry. Air and surface temperature will also affect the drying of the gelcoat. The colder the air temperature, the higher the percentage of catalyst you should use. Do not go below 1/2% or above 2%.

Catalyst Guidline

    Catalyst Percentage
  • 1/2% - (79-85 F)
    Quart: 4-6 cc, Gallon: 23-26 cc, 5 Gallon: 110-130 cc

          The product is quality and I found that mixing the appropriat amount of hardner depending on temperature and between 10 to 15% styrene to reduce sprays very well in an automotive syphon gun with a tip of 1.8mm. HOWEVER! what they dont tell you is there is only 24 to 25 ounces in each quart. Plan for this! you wont get two 16 ounce (pint) batches like I planned. Every "quart" is like that trust me. Thankfully the guys down in the Retail shop understood my frustrations and took great care of me. Thanks guys!

            I purchased this product to re-glass a fishbox lid for a 2003 Wellcraft 210 Fisherman.

            The color perfectly matched the interior gelcoat of the boat.

            The product was easy to use and I am very happy with the project!

                  This product is excellent to work with because it is very forgiving. I mixed this with 8 oz of gel with 1/2 oz of styrene and 1 teaspoon of hardener and it was the perfect recipie for spraying. I used an HVLP spray gun with 1.4 mm tip and it came out absolutley perfect. It does take at least three coats for non transparency but it looks excellent. The only downfall I have for this is that it came in a gallon pail not the jug that you see on the picture and that made for some very messy mixing as you can just pour it without getting it all over. sand between coats with 220on firstcoat, 400 on sec, and 600+ on third. buffed with finess II and waxed with colnite 885 perfect finish.

                  I used this product to cover a repair area on my boat approximately 10 square feet. I used foam brushes on the keel and sprayed on the sides of the hull. The sprayed sections required a lot less sanding but the prep time and clean up was more time consuming. If you follow what is recommended on the videos and instructional section of JD website you'll have a nice finished product.

                  I used the flag blue to put strips on my boat. The product does not cover up white very will. I had to buy twice what I needed. I mixed 1/2 quart at a time using 1/2 the hardener they gave me and 1/2 from [@] with a pint of acitone to thin it enough to spray out of my gun.I had to put that much hardener due to I was prefoming this in Feb. All in all it worked great.

                    Comments about Jamestown Distributors Colored Air Dry Gelcoats:

                    Good quality Gelcoat. The 'cream' color matched well from gallon to gallon. The set up was predictable and worked well. At mid 70s temperature it was hardish to the touch in 30-40 mins and I wet sanded the next day. I used a sprayable body filler HVLP gun with a 1.5mm tip. The gun holds 16 oz which matched what I could spray before the gelling started. I would just flush the gun with some acetone and wipe it out between batches. I mixed the entire gallon for a few mins with a bent rod in a cordless drill. For each 16 oz batch of gelcoat I mixed in 1.5 oz styrene and 1 oz acetone then mixed for a min. I added in 10-11cc of MEKP depending on the temp and mixed for a solid min. I sprayed about 1 gallon white and 2 gallons of the cream and it worked well. No issues spraying over west system epoxy, filled or unfilled or polyester filler. A few holes were filled by the previous owner with Marine tex and this reacted with the gelcoat preventing it from hardening. A 17 foot bare Boston Whaler Montauk took a gallon of white for the ouside hull and center console. The inside took almost 2 gallons. I used 400 grit wet sandpaper to knock down the orange peel then 600 then the 3m imperial rubbing compound then wax. It only took a few hours for the hull, mirror finish, and about 4 hours for the interior, shiny finish. The gallon cans are filled with about 3 quarts so plan for this.
                    I sprayed in my back woods because the styrene and acetone stinks to high heaven and it is partly shady.
