Product Details

AwlCare is a hand applied, non-abrasive, synthetic polymer used to remove mild stains, water spots and diesel soot while increasing resistance to attack from acid rain and other pollutants, when applied regularly. It contains no harsh abrasives.

Awlgrip topcoat maintenance is a two part process. Wash surfaces with AwlWash wash-down concentrate and follow up with this sealer.

Never use traditional waxes on Awlgrip or AwlCraft topcoats, as they tend to break down quickly and cause a yellowish appearance. Traditional waxes also attract dirt. AwlCare won't yellow, and the protective coating lasts through multiple washings. Use it to temporarily seal and restore gloss to painted surfaces dulled by age or mistreatment. Time to repaint? Use AwlPrep T0115 to strip AwlCare from the surface.

Info & Guides
Application - Apply with a 100% cotton applicator or cloth. Do not apply Awlcare with mechanical devices, apply by hand only.

Surface Preparation - Wash surface with Awlwash wash down concentrate, rinse and wipe dry.

Mixing and reduction - Shake Awlcare well before applying.

Application Instructions - Shake well and apply with 100% cotton applicator or cloth. Awlcare may be applied in sun or shade, and can be applied to large areas before removing. Allow to dry to a haze, and wipe off with a 100% clean, cotton towel.

Note - Awlgrip recommends washing the surface one per week to prevent dirt build-up. Use Awlwash Wash Down Concentrate to minimize removal of Awlcare protective polymer sealer. Multiple coats may be needed to protect water run-off areas.

Temperature Range - Optimal surface/ambient range is 18 C/60 F to 35 C/95 F. Proper application and or cure results may be more difficult to achieve when conditions are outside this range. Do not apply paint materials to surfaces less than 3 C/5 F above dew point. Do not apply to surfaces warmer than 41 C/105 F. Ambient temp range must be 10 C/50 F to 41 C/105 F.

This stuff really worked
By boat sailor from Chesapeake Bay

I did a thorough cleaning with awlwash per instructions. Then did the hand application of awlcare with the cotton rags per instructions. I did a small section with microfiber towel to test and the microfiber did not work for some reason. So I figure wt heck and got cotton terry rags from the hardware store. Made a serious difference. I also put some heavy elbow grease into it during application and buff off. My paint was seriously chalked up looking and came out looking really nice. For the chalkier looking spots, I just rubbed the heck out of it until the new look came back- hard work, but worth the effort.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Excellent for Painted Boats
By Asterias from Texas

Super easy to apply and buff off. Manufacturer recommends that you not use a machine, although buff off with a DA machine and terry cloth pad might work fine at very slow speeds. In my case, I liked not having to use an electrical power tool near the water. Restores the original paint shine and dirt shedding properties. I think I will apply at least once a year; maybe twice a year here in Texas where the sun is quite harsh.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
