We have a corvette with sundamaged gelcoat...it is full of fine spider like cracks...what is the best way to repair and restore this body?
Yes, use totalboat ployester finishing resin.It is easy to sand and paint finish comes out sweet
I have spider cracks in my gel coat on a 20-year old canoe.structurally the canoe is solid, there are two placer where it was impacted causing a spider webbing in the gel-coat.is this finnishing resin suitable for this repair?
yes you can use that product.but there are reasons why spider cracks happen.to correct the issue the top resin should be sanded away and check the structure of the vessel in question.lay a fiber mesh and coat it with fiberglass and sand.then coat it with finish coat.
No, this product is for laminating layers of cloth and because it has wax is not ideal for multiple layers of application in that use - wax is used to seal the reaction from air to allow for curing.I used the white gel coat from total boat to clean up the gel coat from an old kayak - it worked well for that though removing the wax was a hassle.
Hello - My business casts polyester resin keepsakes for customers using their dried flowers. Occasionally, I have to apply a recoat over the back of the finished piece after it has been removed from the mold.I need a clear tack free coating that will bond to hardened polyester resin. Will this product work for this purpose? Thanks - Mike.
It dries clear to a little opaque in color. Thickness depends on what you need it to be. Just understand that polyester alone is not very strong alone, it's britle, it needs fiberglass or some type of filler to get it's strength.
Thanks Rick for the quick reply. Is this a water clear finish? How thick of a coating do you recommend applying?
So if I use this for a thin coat - perhaps an 1/8 inch , it would appear clear? Rick - thanks for your input, you have been a great help.Mike.
Yes, the finishing resin has wax in it and will air cure.
between coats, what is the best way to remove the wax?
What is the shelf life on the Polyester finishing resin?
first I did not buypolyester finishing resin second that is a question that should be addressed to the manufacture
what is coverage per gal.?
About 80 Sq. Ft/ Gal
I purchased a gallon of polyester resin,(laminating), and used about 2/3 of the gallon. next morning I found the remaining portion had jelled, and couldn't be used. There was no hardner or anything in it. Has that happen to anyone else?
It happened with me. It appears that after the container is opened, the shelf life is very short like few days not one day. May be the storage temperature has to do with the shed life
Use in well ventilated area
