REQUIRED ROLLER: TotalProtect can be applied by brushing, rolling or spraying. For best results when rolling, use a 3/16" nap or foam solvent-safe roller cover.

Do not apply TotalProtect over 1-part paints.

Great base coat for underwater
By Jimbo from Richlands NC

Verified Purchase

The only thing I can say negatively is the amount of stirring needed to mix the two parts. The base is so thick and when you add the epoxy, it takes a long time to get it mixed properly.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Total Boat Barrier Coat
By Walt from Spring Lake, MI

Verified Purchase

I couldn't be more impressed with Jamestown Distributing. Product arrived on time and in good condition. To my surprise, it also came with paint brushes, roller, roller tray, painters tape and a Tyvek painters jump suit. I guess only time will tell with how the product holds up but at this point I couldn't be any happier.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Works well
By Eric from Portland Oregon

Verified Purchase

The pluses. It works well. The minuses. Requires accurate mixing if you are not using it all at once. It also is thick so you need to have thinner on hand.

may buy unless a better option is found
By jim from Arkansas

Verified Purchase

The gallon can was bent up all around, and the contents very lumpy. While there was no apparent leak-evidence on the can itself, the contents appeared to have lost some of its carrier fluids. Two facts indicated this to me. One the lumpy condition of the contents and the thickness of the product even after extended mixing with an electric mixer on a power drill. One other fact was in the amount of area this gallon of the product covered. I needed to order and wait for an additional quart of the product to finish the barrier coating of the bottom of a 23 foot O'Day sailboat. I also noticed when mixing and applying the product from the additional quart differences. The new Quart was of the normal viscosity and free of lumps.

unfinised area of bottom requirieng a quart in addition to the gallon.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
