Info & Guides
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%.

  • If using wood mixing stick, place stick in resin before adding catalyst so wood doesn't absorb catalyst

    Good product
    By Mike from Lake Erie sailing

    Verified Purchase

    Product is good. Be careful to color match closely. The color swatch available from Jamestown may not be true to the color in the can. This may be due to the substrate color on your boat versus the paper.

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    Great stuff, great color match.
    By Ron from Charlotte, NC

    Verified Purchase

    I am using this oyster color gelcoat to fix spider cracks on my "new" 1995 Sunbird 170 FS. The match is perfect in some places, almost perfect in others. Package needs to include mixing ratio information. Found on YouTube to use 4 drops of catalyst per teaspoon of gelcoat. That ratio seems to work fine at mid-70s temperatures. Could use guidance for other temps.

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    I would use this product time and again.
    By Aboboatbuilder from Charleston WV

    This is an easy to use product and reliable. I would suggest experimenting with mixing very small batches to determine the proper amount of catalyst before applying it to your boat. Once it starts to feel, it goes off quickly.

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    Excellent!!
    By Matt from Kingman AZ

    Verified Purchase

    First time using gelcoat I read ALOT about it and how to work with it. I had some small repairs on a 1979 Glastron Sportster and this stuff works perfect. Love it. The color I ordered was "cream" with wax and it's close enough to my boat. My boat is more of an antique white but like I said it's close enough for me haha. Trying to match a 41 year old gelcoat is near impossible without being a master at color mixing. Would highly recommend Jamestown distributors they shipped out instantly and received it very quick. Extremely satisfied. Thanks Jamestown!

    This product in "cream" color matches O'day
    By Barrington Ed from Warwick, RI

    Verified Purchase

    This gelcoat in "cream" color is a close match for stock O'day gelcoat for the hull and deck. I have been able to achieve a match by mixing in a little brown tint.

    Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

    I will be buying this again soon with this boat restoration
    By Wayne from Hendersonville, TN

    Verified Purchase

    This was my first time using Gelcoat. This was not a traditional gelcoat in a mold project. I was replacing the floor of my Xpress. I did have a learning curve to overcome as for Getcoat curing. Figured it out & results were great.

    Installed
    Cured

    Had done some major repairs to my old fiberglass dinghy. Brush applied this gelcoat to the interior of the dinghy. Cured hard everywhere, looks great. Should last far longer than paint.
