Question

can I use this paint on alum.bottom as well as the PVC tubes of my inflatable ?

Asked on 03/10/2014 by Chuck R

Top Answer

maybe a primer coat prior to the bottom paint? It's a brand new dink with factory paint on the alum. We're here in Maine with lot's of rocks to land on, so it's going to take a beating anyway. Thanks for your input. C

Answer

I haven't tried to use it on Aluminum. I gripped pretty well on the inflatable material. Surface prep would be the key for it gripping the smooth metal. The paint is soft so I wouldn't expect it to last on surfaces that rub the bottom. I wish you luck.

Answer

I used it on the plywood transom as well as the tubes on my inflatable. It worked great for my application. Used it for a number of years with little to no growth in both freash and salt water. Dan

Is this paint suitable for a 1991 Avon Rover Inflatable?

This stuff is GREAT for any inflatable in my opinion.

Answer

I used the paint on a 1995 Sea Range inflatable. The results were reasonable. I lightly sanded the existing coating with 120 grit sand paper. The results were OK but not great. The main problem was gradual delamination where the old coating was already weak. It did cut the leak rate by about 80%.

Answer

It should be. I used it on an Avon and it came out great. Clean it and pressure wash it first and I gave mine a light sand as well. Overinflate it then paint and dry and do a second coat. Looked good for two years.

Question

I currently have MDR on the bottom of the pontoons of my RIB. Can I apply a coat of this product over the MDR without any weird chemical reaction? Also, I know this stuff is for inflatables, but can I use it on gelcoat too??

Asked on 03/27/2015 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I used on both the pontoons and the fiberglass gelcoat with no problems. in general, it has very adhesive properties but i cannot speak to putting it over MDR. It goes like most other bottom paint so i don't think it will be a problem.

I put 2 coats on my Avon (hypalon) inflatable in Dec. Did not put it back in the ocean until mid Feb; so it's only been back in the after about 6 weeks. So far it's been super---but time will tell.

What other materials will I need to apply this product, epoxy etc.?

Top Answer

No other preparation is required. This paint adheres directly to inflatable.

Answer

All you need to do is make sure the bottom is clean and dry before application. Brush on two coats and that's it! We keep our Avon in a large barnacle area in CT. Since I started using this paint we have no barnacle's at all. It really good stuff. At the end of last season we still had a lot of paint cover so this year we only put on one coat. The paint is expensive but worth every penny!!
