How To Apply Marine Barrier Coating

Surface Preparation Guidelines:
Bare fiberglass should be thoroughly wiped down with TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep, followed by sanding with 80-grit sandpaper. Always remove sanding residue and then wipe again with TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep.

Bare metal should be blasted to a bright appearance. All residue must be removed. Sweep with a clean brush or broom and use an air line and or vacuum. Apply TotalProtect within 1 hour. If this is not possible, sand with emery cloth and wipe down with TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep before priming.

If applying over TotalProtect, wash with soap and water and let dry. Sand with 80-grit sandpaper and remove any sanding residue. Wipe with TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep.

Mixing:
Combine base and activator components in a 3:1 ratio. If you are mixing the entire contents, this means mixing the whole can of activator with the whole can of base.

PERSONAL SAFETY

Wear protective gloves, clothing protection, eye/face protection, and a proper respirator when applying or sanding TotalBoat TotalProtect.

An excellent choice!

After spending 18 months using orbital sanders to carefully remove the original gel coat layers down to the fiberglass, you can imagine how nervous we were about making the right decision on barrier coat. This was an excellent choice and we are 100% pleased with the result.

Awesome stuff covers well

it is a little weird at first because it is so thick but after mixing it up it goes on great with a roller and covers really well.

I really liked the coverage of this product.

My 8 year old son and I are restoring our 1963 Grady White Hatteras and wanted to put on a really solid coating after we stripped the hull below the waterline. I found the product easy to work with and I appreciated the high-build quality of it as well. By the way, my son's favorite shows are the boat building series with Lou Sauzedde. We recently received an order of some varnish and thinner and when he opened the box and found the extra goodies that you packed in (foam brushes, gloves, etc.) he remarked how nice it was of Lou to send us those for free! We had the pleasure of meeting Lou at the tent sale back in April and I guess he thinks that Lou runs the place. Anyway, keep up the good work, you guys are great and I hope to bring our boat to the 2019 Tent Sale for the customer boat show!

have not put boat in water yet, but went on and built up as advertised.not an easy job hard to mix very thick requires more effort than bottom paint, but well worth the work if it does the job;

So far so good

So far so good. Mixes easily, applies well, and sands easily. I'm not sure how well it wears, I'm most of the way (hopefully) through a two-year boat restore. Has not been in the water yet. Not able to speak of it's performance yet. Seems good.

Good Stuff

5

Exactly as advertised. Even pot life, which I usually take with a large grain of salt. For those of you that had trouble mixing it, two words: mud mixer. It made short work of getting the solids off the bottom of the can and fully blended. Works great for stirring bottom paint, too.

I would definitely use all Total Boat products again.

great product but made this old guy hustle

5

it went on easy and covered well. I found it superior compared to other products I have used. It is the best value I know off. At 73 I had to hustle pretty hard to get it all coats applied before it dried out in bucket.
