Question

Friends tell me this will work wonders on my 17ft Mako and will also work wonders on my black jeep wrangler hardtop?????????

Asked on 03/07/2012 by alan crocker

Top Answer

Hi Alan, google on 'penetrol jeep' and you will find a 'jeepforom' with experiences using penetrol in various ways. Personally I only have used it as a paint additive for zspar, interlux and pettit marine paints and varnishes and I love it. Just be careful you use it with a proper paint vehicle- two part poly certainly not. I hope this helps, Tom

Answer

I have used this successfully with varnish. It eliminates the drag and thus brush lines.

Answered on 03/14/2012 by JEFF COOK

Answer

That would be a new application for me. I can only say that when I applied it ti varnish,1 capfull to a pint, it smoothed and accelerated the drying time so recoating in 1 hr was accomplished. I have only applied it to bright wood but I would imagine it would thin the waterproof coating and would allowing better sealing of any sun induced cracks. Get back to me, if your happy with it, I might use it to resear aly cracks in the cabin top of Triton # 80.

Question

I would like to know if Penetrol is compatable with the Interlux Brightside polyurethane paint? The application would be for a newly constructed boat made primarily with marine plywood (Okoume). If the Brightside is oil based it should be OK. I reside in the Phoenix area and Penetrol works well in this climate.......just not sure if it is OK for the above referenced paint. Thanks, Dennis

Answer

I have only used it to reseal badly oxidized gel coat works great for that and have only painted over it once using a polyurethane which worked well. I do not know if this helps but good luck.

Hi Dennis. Here on the East Coast I worked as marine painter for about seven years @ Cape Code marine Service- MacDouglas. We used Penetrol like water- absolutely great product with Interlux, Pettit,Zspar varnishes.etc. That was a long time ago however. 70's. I love Penetrol! But formulas have changed I found last summer - using pettit 105 with penetrol. Penetrol never mixed carrier like it sed to but did no harm and gave me longer wet edge and flow. Worked better when I did half/half coat using pettit 100. I never got to straight coat of 100 but suspect that would have been as it used to be. IInterlux poly- new for me so I did research- Two part poly certainly not and that is an obvious one. One part poly I have not found anything pointing to problems. In fact a lot of people claim to have great success. Interlux sales says do not use but that is their job and we never listened to them then and would test now with that kind of response - and even if they said yes. :) Search on BLACK ROLLER PAINT JOB? and select Black Roller Paint Job? R3Vlimited Forums (I could not attach URL- sorry) Here you will find approval. Still, test. Always cheaper in the long run and you will go into the project with more confidence and knowledgeable rather than try to keep a wet edge and adjust with hope at the same time. Hope this was helpful, Tom

Question

I understand this product helps restore faded fiberglass. After using this product on the fiberglass, can you then apply a wax?

Asked on 12/02/2012 by Bob Last Name

Top Answer

Yes, after the use of Penetrol you should apply either a good marine wax or a liquid protectant like 303.

I have used this only on the non-skid surface, so have never tried to apply wax after the application.

what removes penatrol from fiberglass?

Asked on 03/21/2012 by Lou Ann Ward

Top Answer

Wipe some fresh Penetrol over the dried Penetrol and let it set for 5-10 minutes. Then wipe off. It should take most of the old with it. Clean the spot with acetone.

can I use it directly on wood as a protectorent?

Asked on 04/06/2014 by Undisclosed

This is typically added to paint to enhance penetration and flow of the paint. Not typically used straight on wood for protection.
