Answer

what you want to do is what this Gel coat is made for. Waxed Gel Coat could also be used but cure time is triple than what non-waxed GC. will take. Don't forget the PVA for curing. Hope this helps.

yes, It says the product can be sprayed so I assumed that I could use it to cover the upper portion.

Question

is this waxed?

Asked on 06/12/2014 by chad sine

Top Answer

No, you will need to cover the patch with an oxygen blocker such as saran wrap or waxed paper. You could also buy some ploy vinyl alchohol (PVA) to cover it. PVA is either brushed on or sprayed on over the gelcoat patch and washes off with water after the gelcoat cures. In all of my research I have been told to go with unwaxed (laminating) gelcoat so you can build up coats prior to the final coat which needs to be blocked for a final cure. There is plenty of info on you tube if you need more info. In my opinion the toughest part of gelcoat repair is color matching. Good luck!

Question

I"m not sure not quite how to go about this so I will explain. Then you tel me what to buy? I have a 14foot v-hull fiberglass fishing boat, transom 15inches. total sides not over 2feet high, ecept for front 3 feet high. I'm going to finish sanding the bottom today. I want to paint it and then put resin on it to make it last. Should I put polyester resin will it be okay. My question is how long will it last with polyester compared to epoxy?How many years different?. but living on a budget too. So as well but isn't the gel coat supposed to make a boat last longer. do you put the gel coat on last. I lknow as well you can mix gel coat with resin is that correct or not? I know you can mix tint with the gel coat too. What would be the easiest and quickest but cheapest way to do this. REmember this is just a fishing boat. I do appreciate your help in this matter

You don't want to paint it, then put on resin. When the paint chips and wears of, so will the resin. You do not need to put resin on the whole bottom. First, use epoxy resin and not polyester. Epoxy is more flexable and forgiving with the pounding of the bottom. Just scuff up the areas and remove all loose gel coat, You can use oil colore from an art srore to tint the color of the gel. Only use in small amounts. When putting on the gel, use a plastic squeegee and put it on neat. Some gel coats are meant to put on and remain tacky. They need the lack of air to cure. So after you are finished, put on some clear thin plastic, such as saran wrap, squeegee it to get out air bubbles and tape it down on the edges. Let sit for at least 24 hours. See what can reads for cure time. When that is cured, take off plastic, sand smooth, prime and paint with fiberglass paint and primer

Question

when applying gel coat I heard that you must cover with plastic wrap. is this true?

Asked on 11/20/2011 by Daryl Hansen

Top Answer

From what I understand. Gelcoat does not contain wax. Wax is engineerd into other epoxies so it will float to the top and form a seal to let the epoxy cure. It needs this barrier to seal it off from the air. Epoxy cures in the absense of air. So without the extistance of wax in the product, It is best to cover with some sort of thin clear food type plastic and tape around it and get all the air out and it will cure better.
