TotalBoat AlumiPaint AF Aluminum Antifouling Paint Customer Questions and Answers

Question

I need a decent aluminum antifouling paint for a old 16' aluminum Lund that's in the water all summer. It's just used as a knock about. Your product sounds like just the answer. But when I read that you suggested a barrier coat be applied... I thought to myself you have to be kidding me. That's not going to happen... I've done that to two larger fiberglass hulls I own and it's a beast of a job under ideal circumstances. Anyway what do you suggest as an happy medium to achieve a decent bond, but not the ideal epoxy coat prepped bond. it's bare aluminum now. Light sand, and maybe Totalboat Dewaxer/Surface prep...Please advise. Thanks, Jim Albani, Essex MA

Top Answer

Jim, If you are down to bare aluminum, a light sand and clean with the Dewaxer/Surface prep and a coat or two of the Alumipaint will work well.

Question

Will total boat aluminum AF bottom paint adhere to bare metal on the bottom of my Jon boat. Do I really need to use primer because I really don't have any extra money to buy primer since everything I'm reading says apply primer first. I've already sanded it down to bare medal so I'm ready to paint now

Epoxy primer should be used. Hardware store spray primer may not withstand prolonged submersion.

Question

I bought a 1968 Weldcraft aluminum project boat 24' X 8'. It is painted blue on the side rails, cabin, and bow deck with a blue strip on the side. Some paint is existing, some new aluminum for cabin changes and a very small amount has come off. It is primed with something that seem secure for the most part. Is this paint for above waterline as well as below the water line? Can I paint over the existing paint? What do you recommend for paint and procedures? I'd like to keep expense low. There is probably 400 to 450 square feet to paint, all above the water line. I'm going to buy something in the near future. I want the best I can afford

Top Answer

This paint is only intended for below the waterline. Above the waterline, bare aluminum should be primed with epoxy primer.then it can be overcoated with a one or two part urethane paint. Two part urethane paints will give you the best looking and most durable finish. Painted surfaces can be overcoated with paint, however, before using a two part paint you should test the existing paint for compatibility. If acetone or paint stripper wrinkles the existing paint it is not compatible with a two part urethane. Plan on 400 sq ft per gallon for each type of paint used.
