- Direct to wood, metal and GRP.
- Teamac Marine Gloss or any suitable, conventional white spirit based topcoats.

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.
Teamac Marine Gloss, is a high end marine coating with excellent opacity and high gloss finish, suitable for all general marine areas above the waterline; bridge fronts, deckwork, masts, and superstructures.
