VC Performance Epoxy is a two-part finish ideal for trailered or rack-stored performance powerboats and sailboats. Formerly known as VC Underwater Epoxy, it produces a hard, slick, semi-gloss white finish with special additives to make wet sanding and burnishing easy.
VC Performance's semi-gloss finish makes viewing sanded areas easier. It contains no antifouling biocide. Overcoats have a 10 minute drying time. It can left to dry indefinitely before launching. Use with 2316N thinner. Offers 200 Sq.Ft./Gal coverage when sprayed (220 Sq.Ft./Gal coverage when rolled or brushed).
Available in a Quart Kit (contains two quarts: 1 quart base & 1 quart curing agent) and a Gallon Kit (contains two gallons: 1 gallon base & 1 gallon curing agent).
