When painting a boat, preparation is the most critical step. Poor surface preparation will always show through the final coat and can also lead to premature wear and tear on the substrate. Cleaning the hull with Intertux, Awlgrip, Epifanes, Sterling, or Z-Spar solvents or thinners will reduce contamination and loosen old paint for removal. The lines of professional solvents that Jamestown Distributors has to offer are excellent in preparing and stripping down paint on your boating project.

Safety is priority #1! We at Jamestown Distributors believe that safety should always be at the top of the list when beginning any type of project. Due to the severity of some materials and chemicals we expose ourselves to on a day-to-day basis there is no excuse for not using proper protection. There are many different dangers in a workplace environment. Covering our skin and clothing with the use of gloves, paint suits, and eye protection is a good start. Protection against airborne chemicals and dust particles is just as important. Overlooking basic safety and health precautions can lead to adverse affects on you for years to come. Proper respiratory safety should be on the top of the list. Jamestown Distributors has the safety supplies to go along with your paint projects.
