Low temperature and high humidity will adversely affect application, drying and performance of any coating.
- All surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free from contaminants.
- Wood should be sanded prior to coating to ensure an adequate "key" is produced.
- Apply direct to abraded GRP. Existing painted surfaces should be cleaned, degreased and sanded to ensure an adequate "key" is produced.
- Remove all loose, flaking material and treat bare areas as new substrate then prepare accordingly.
- Direct to wood, metal and GRP.
- Teamac Marine Gloss or any suitable, conventional white spirit based topcoats.
- Mix well before use.
- As dictated by normal good painting practice.
- Care must be taken during application that the temperature is above the dew point to avoid any contamination.
- In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.

Is Teamac Marine Gloss OK for salt water & is the Teamac Marine Undercoat fine under the water line?
Teamac Marine Gloss and Undercoat have good resistance to salt water but should not be used for constant immersion below the waterline. They are suitable for boats that are generally berthed on land. Below the waterline, for boats in the water most of the time our recommendation is Teamac Metaclor Underwater CR Primer and Teamac Chlorvar Chlorinated Rubber Paint, both of which have excellent water resistance.
