The core of the Quantum high solids repairable topcoat system, Quantum 99 is a revelation. DIYers & pros alike achieve professional results by brush, roller, or spray. Quantum 99 finishes have unmatched durability & gloss, plus superior stain & weather resistance. Unlike other topside systems, Quantum 99 finishes can be repaired by wet sanding & buffing.
Twice the solids means a gallon goes twice as far, and just 2 coats create a finish depth (in mils) equal to 3 coats of other brands. Shorter cure times let you put your boat back in the water faster. Best of all, Quantum 99 finishes last 3 times longer than comparable paints, so you can spend spring weekends doing something other than buffing and waxing.
Available in over 70 colors, including 6 metallic colors, in Quart and Gallon sizes. Base component must be paired with an activator (sold separately).

Until now, 2 part topside paints were for professional use only. Complicated reducers, activators, and primers meant that 2 part polyurethane systems were mostly used by builders, yards, and professional paints.
Quantum99 raises the bar for topside paint systems. Using a brush or roller, you can now achieve the same smooth, glossy finish that professionals get by spraying -with fewer coats and fewer products. Its innovative, hybrid formula gives you a lasting, high gloss finish with exceptional durability.
Though this paint technology is new to the marine industry, it's not experimental. After nearly a decade of rigorous testing, Quantum99 has garnered rave reviews and proven results for superior gloss, gloss retention, and durability. Easy to use. Easy to repair. Its high solids, eco-friendly formula ensures fewer coats and VOC compliance.
As an added benefit, if you need to refinish brightwork as well as topside surfaces, Quantum99 Polyurethane Topcoat paint and QuantumUV Clear Urethane Varnish use the same activators, reducers, accelerators, and additives (see the Quantum System Product Selection Guide at left for details).
Note: Application of these product systems requires recommended temperature/humidity conditions and film thickness ranges. The material, hangar, and substrate temperature should be no lower than 45°F before, during, and after application. Do not apply paint materials to surfaces less than 5°F above the dew point, or to surfaces warmer than 125°F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 45°F to maximum 125°F. See the Quantum Reducer Chart for details.
