Answer

Yes, it's necessary -- the primer is a two-part paint and won't catalyze without the converter

Answered on 05/02/2014 by Chuck G

Answer

All Awlgrip products are at least 2 part - some are three - the 545 base definitely requires the converter which chemically reacts to effect 'curing' or hardening of the product. I believe its one part 'base' to one part 'converter' - mixing instructions are in very small print on the side of the 'base' can.

Answer

Yes, you must follow the Awlgrip instructions closely to ensure adhesion, cure time and coverage. It is too expensive to take short cuts and have it fail. I have painted a 55' Chris Craft Commander with the primer and top coat and it is great stuff. Be sure to wear a good respirator! The fumes are leathal!

Answer

Yes. It is a 2 part product. If you don't it won't harden.

Answered on 05/02/2014 by MARC LANDINE

Answer

It is a two part paint. The converter is the catalyst for the epoxy paint. It will not harden without it.

Answer

Yes 545 primer is for use above and below waterline . I consider it awlgrip's best primer as compared to awlquick , which is for above water. In the climate where i live ( n. texas , extremly low humidity ) i had to thin with a lot ( roughly 30%) with t0031 brushing ruducer to get a good roll and tip . I am so impressed with the 545 that i am repriming the deck i just did ( with awlquick ) and covering the entire boat with 545, prior to topcoat . The problem i had wilth awlquick is it cracks and the 545 doesn't .

Question

Can I use the Primer converter D3001 as the converter for the top coat base? I don't have any converter G3010.

Asked on 03/17/2012 by Scott Larson

No, you can not use D3001 in place of G3010. You must use G3010 for the top coat base.
