Why You Should Etch an Aluminum Boat Before Priming and Painting

It's very difficult to get paint to stick to aluminum because of oxidation. To remove oxidation and contamination usually means a lot of tedious sanding with very coarse sandpaper or blasting down to shiny, bright metal, followed by priming with a specialty primer.

You can still get good results with primer and paint, but successful adhesion requires etching the surface with the right product. TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Etch Wash goes further than comparable brands, and gives a cleaner surface. Compare it to Alodine or Alumiprep 33. Its phosphoric acid-based formula is easy to use and works fast to create the etched surface needed for epoxy primer or paint to adhere properly and effectively.

IMPORTANT: For best results coating aluminum, if using TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Etch Wash during surface prep, dry the surface completely and apply TotalBoat Strontium Chromate Epoxy Primer immediately after the surface has dried.


Mixing Note: Combine base and activator components in a 1:1 ratio. Mix thoroughly, then induct for 15 minutes prior to reduction (if needed) and application.
