It's no secret that it's hard to get paint to stick to aluminum. Success usually involves sanding, etching, and applying a toxic chromate primer.
With TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Paint, etching is optional and may improve adhesion, but what's most important is that this unique paint is designed to be applied directly to shiny, bare aluminum. It has an advanced, polyurethane formula that makes it bond strongly and durably without etching and priming first. It's also more environmentally friendly because it's chromate-free, with an extremely low VOC content and almost no odor.
The surface prep is actually fast and easy for bare aluminum in good condition—just clean thoroughly to remove any dirt, oil, grease or contaminants, then dry completely. If the bare aluminum has a dull, oxidized look, use 220-grit to sand until shiny, remove sanding residue, wipe with denatured alcohol or use TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Etch Wash as directed, and allow to dry completely before immediately applying TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Paint.

Project turned out well, except I was not able to get the colors I desired due to out of stock status.

TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Paint is an excellent product. This paint is very easy to apply, I just rolled it on to achieve a professional looking finish. It also adheres very well without the need for priming. The colour was true to the description. Very happy with this product and have already ordered more. Customer service and delivery are top notch.

Although I cannot comment on durability YET, I can say I really like the way it handles. Having used several OEM john boat paints this TB stuff is a little easier to handle (thicker) and is water based. Dries timely...not too fast, not too slow. If it takes a lickin in the creek, I'll really like it!

I painted my 1988 SeaNymph sides and tansom from just below the water line using a mini foam roller (smooth finish). 3 coats in rapid succession. Durable so far. Black marks left by tires on the launch dock wipe right off. Very minimal prep. Thorough cleaning and light scuffing with a 3m pad.

Used to repaint my 14ft aluminum from the 70s. Easy to apply and looks great finished. Be aware that you may need a few coats for surfaces that are not even in colour.

Easy to apply applied. Four coats. Will follow up in four months to see how well it holds up

Repainted a worn 58 year old aluminum boat and in a day transformed it back to its former glory. The paint covered well in a few coats and appears very durable. Very pleased with the result.

When on smoothly and clean up was easy. 2 coats gave my 40 yo aluminum fishing boat new life.
