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 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.

Great Product

I used TotalProtect Epoxy Primer to barrier coat my recently repaired keel. I ended up stripping all bottom paint off, repairing the area and then barrier coated the entire keel.

I used TotalProtect Epoxy Primer to barrier coat my recently repaired keel. I ended up stripping all bottom paint off, repairing the area and then barrier coated the entire keel.

Area was prepared and the barrier coat was applied as directed. I used a roller for the larger areas with a brush for the details. Easy to apply, dried quickly, and results were as expected. I was very happy with this product.

I purchased "Plastic Paint Pails" at the time of buying the barrier coat which made mixing 3 to 1 extremely easy.

Seems to work great once you get it on the hull.

Be sure to have numerous plastic pint/quart containers, roller covers, paint pan liners and brushes because of the short 20 minute working time.

Comments about TotalBoat TotalProtect Epoxy Barrier Coat System:

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.

    Comments about TotalBoat TotalProtect Epoxy Barrier Coat System:

    The mooring lines were cut on my 1977 Seafarer 23 last fall and the boat ended up about 3 miles away on the rocks causing damage to the keel and rudder. This summer , I stripped all the bottom paint ( 8 layers of Pettit Unipoxy) , sanded with 80 grit paper with an orbital sander , repaired the damage using Total Boat 2 part fairing compound. ( of which I'm very impressed, easily mixed , goes on smooth and easy to sand). After washing , allowing to dry and wiping down with acetone , I mixed and rolled on 3 coats of Total Boat epoxy primer. At about 70 degrees , the port side was dry enough to overcoat by the time the starboard side was done. So I just kept going around the boat until it was done.
    The primer mixed well , rolled on smooth filling small imperfections. . Waited 3 hours and applied 2 coats of Total Boat Select bottom paint, again very happy with. It covered well and went a long way, only used 1/2 gal. The total paint job took about 10 hours , 2 men and a case of beer. The boat hasn't seen water yet but the select bottom paint gives me 18 months to launch being water activated. So far I'm VERY impressed with all the Total Boat products I've used and with Jamestown Distributers. Free shipping . rollers paint suit ,etc. Its a lot of work , but worth it , My old boat looks new. Thank You. Hopefully the bottom will standup to the elements after a season on the mooring next summer in Lake Champlain. I will write another review.

    Mast repaint

      Comments about TotalBoat TotalProtect Epoxy Barrier Coat System:

      I recently used TotalPertect Epoxy Barrier Coat and Interlux Perfection to repaint my mast. The mast was previous powder coated and areas were chipping off near base of mast.
      I took the recommendation from JD and used TotalPertect Epoxy Barrier Coat as a prime coat in the shop with temp set at 70F (live in Northern MN) to get right humidity level. I applied three barrier coats followed with one-week dry/cure time and then sanded with 220 final coat for a smooth finish (look good). Though, the first barrier coat came out rough in that I applied to much paint with a brush (paint look fractured) at one time. Therefore, I had to aggressively (180 grit) sand first coat to get smooth finish without fracture looking surface before applying the next two coats (less is more). I used a roll & tip method but found just using the roller (keeping a wet edge) was best for the brush left to many brush marks causing me go back over with roller. I found brush was to stiff. I went down to local box store and purchase a longer bristle brush for later topcoat use.
      Two days later, I applied the first top coat (perfection Snow White) at about 0900. Next day, same time, I applied the second top coat within the recoat window as indicated by instructions (6hrs to 2 days recoat without sanding). Initially, like with barrier coat I tried the roll & tip method and quit right off because I was experiencing the same brush mark/fractured look as with barrier coat. I just used roller and use brushed around cleat areas where needed followed up with roller while keeping a wet edge – work great.
      If I do this over again I will not use TotalPertect Epoxy Barrier Coat as a primer. I would use another two-part epoxy primer. Not because TotalPertect Epoxy Barrier Coat did not work, because it did, I found it was too thick for mast repaint where I only had small areas of bare aluminum and rest was over existing paint to warrant its use. I think tow part epoxy another primer that is not as th

          Comments about TotalBoat TotalProtect Epoxy Barrier Coat System:

          I remain impressed with this product and believe it will perform well. I did mix more than necessary for my small job and would have benefited by knowing a bit more about anticipated coverage. However, the product went on well and dried perfectly. Multiple coats were easily applied using the "thumb print" technique that was suggested. If I am in future need of a good barrier coat this will be my choice.

                I used this barrier coat to prime the floor of a new trailer (plywood), second coat with barrier coat and spread colored flakes and then coated with a water base clear epoxy in several layers for an outstanding finish. Very durable and will last for quite some time. I believe this system will work well on concrete floors as well.
