AwlFair is a two-component premium trowelable filler for fairing, leveling, or smoothing surface imperfections due to gouges, pitting, dents, or weld seams. May be used above or below the waterline. This is the Base only. Awl-Fair Converter must be purchased separately.
*** FOR PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY ***
Application Equipment- Trowels, Spatulas, longboard, or putty knives
Surface Preparation - Only apply over preoperly applied and prepared Awlgrip primers. 545 Epoxy primer, or High Build epoxy primers are best.
Mixing and Reduction - First shake or stir to a uniform consistency. Mix 1 part D8200 or D1019 with 1 part D7200 to a uniform pink color with no streaks or lumps in the mix. Do not add thinners or reducers to Awl-Fair products.
Application Instructions - Apply by trowel in thin layers to avoid air pockets to an area you can work in 15 to 20 minutes at 77 F/25 C, 50% RH when using D7200. When using D7200 Awl-Fair compound, work time is only 5 to 10 minutes at 77 F/25 C, 50% RH. Start application in low areas and build out into high areas. Allow to cure. Several applications may be required to fill large areas. Block sand with 30 to 60 grit and blow off sanding dust and residue before applying more Awl-Fair. Shape materials with tools of your choice.
Note: Awl-fair must be sealed with 545 Epoxy Primer. Filler primer, fairing materials, and sanding surfacers should be sealed with 545 Epoxy Primer before applying Awlgrip or Awlcraft 2000 Topcoats. This maximizes gloss and color hold-out in the topcoat.
Note: Avoid inserting air pockets when applying. Application of Awl-Fair in thin layers helps avoid air pockets. Remember to feather all edges and holes at 6 to 1 or 6 times the fill thickness for the feathered edge.
Warning: Do not incorporate into this Awlgrip coating system any thinner, additive, modifier, converter, or related product produced by any manufacturer other than Awlgrip. Do not apply to surfaces less than 3 C/5 F above the dew point, or to surfaces warmer than 41 C/105 F. Ambient temperature should be within 13 C/55 F - 40 C/104 F.

AwlFair may be a little more expensive than the alternatives, and they might be as good, but I choose AwlFair because of how it worked in the past. In spring of 2015 I bought the quart-size (2 quarts) for a deck fairing project. It went fine - no pin holes, no sags on vertical surfaces, sands easily after overnight cure, and importantly no shrinkage (after months and years under an AwlGrip paint surface). I continued to use the same quart package for the next six years for odds-and-ends repairs. Performed exactly the same six years later when I finally scraped the bottom of the containers clean. Never clumped and never dried in the containers, in spite of the fact that the plastic cover don't seem to fit all that tight.
