Evercoat One Step Finish Premium Gelcoat uses a resilient, isophthalic polyester coating that does not require PVA or other air-inhibitors to cure to a hard surface. Used to fill gouges, chips, scrapes and deep scratches in fiberglass gel coat finishes.
This gelcoat also has an added ultraviolet inhibitor to greatly slow fading and discoloration. Gelcoat is white in color although Evercoat Coloring Agents may be used to tint the material to desired color. Available in pint and quart sizes.

I have a Triton TR186 Bass Boat with hair line cracks top of gunnel from the seat back 4 feet each side. Can I just gelcoat over the hairline cracks and gunnel?
It depends on what is causing the crack. It could be cosmetic, or an indication of something structural. You'll have to sand down the cracked gelcoat.
What primer should I use with this product?
Any good Epoxy Primer should work fine. There is 545 Epoxy Primer, but I used an Aircraft grade Epoxy Primer.
I'm trying to find out how much I need. Is there a square footage limit on the label? Thanks.
Yes..its 20sq ft.....i will tell u the coats are very transparent.u will need no less then 5 to 7 coats to cover and to reach the 20mil as recommended
do you need a thinner for this gel coat? and can you spray this one on
u can spray it and u must thinner to do so..there is a certen thinner just for gelcoat sorry do not recall the name..JD does carry this product for thinning...u mite better off to roll and tip and then sand and compound..it is very easy to work with once cured...i hope that can help u
No you do not need a thinner. A tiny brush works best for application
Good product. Dries to a hard coating quickly. My only comment would to be judicious with the hardener. If you add even a litte to much it will set up faster than you might want.
No, I did not use a thinner and the product worked very well for my needs. I had a very small area to repair and did not spray the gelcoat. If you intend to spray the gelcoat then I suppose you would need to thin it.
does the one step evercoat gel come with hardner?
yes it does

Yes, it comes with hardener. Be careful not to use to much. When it says 12 drops I found that 8-10 was plenty.
can this be reduced with acetone to make it sprayable for a fiberglass repair?
Yes, I reduced it with acetone per instuction for spraying.
According to what I've read you can but there is a limit
Do you need to sand the gel coat between applications, or can you recoat as you would with a laminating resin?
Recommend sanding between coats
I've not had to sand between coats but I did use acetone to clean area if I waited a couple of days.
Gel coat with no wax that has not been covered with a mold release agent, can be recoated without sanding.If it has wax in it, it has to be sanded between coats.
can this be painted over with bottom paint?
Yes it can. You must sand the gelcoat prior to application with 120 grit paper.
Easy to use, mixes smoothly, dries within mins of the time frame for the harder I used. Works easily with syringes. Easy to sand to a smooth finish.

I've been using this stuff for minor repairs for a couple years now, and it's been doing great things for me. I have applied it with everything from a Q-tip to a Preval sprayer, a foam brush, and a foam roller. Very easy to use, since it already contains surfacing wax. Can also be thickened with Cabosil/colloidal silica/whatever. If you're a new guy doing your first gelcoat repair, go with this stuff, it will work.
Great product, on time delivery.
I have an inground concrete heated pool at my motel. It was originally painted with an expoxy paint which would only last 3 to 5 years before the whole thing had to be sanded and re-epoxied, at great cost both labor and materials. I opted to have the pool fiberglassed with white resin and mat. Unfortunately the guy who did it did not prepare the concrete properly and did not get good adhesion in 100% of the pool and over time the fiberglass sheel cracked and separated from the concrete, thus necessitating a repair. Every repair that I have made with this Evercoat product has held. Great product, fast turnover, excellent adhesion.
