Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect

 

Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect is a water based product that is safe to use on any gelcoat surface.

Gelcoat provides a highly durable and resilient gloss finish for many applications such as boats, cars, lawnmowers, tractors, equipment covers, shelters for animals etc.  Even though gelcoat is highly durable over time when left to the elements (sun and weather) it will develop a dry look and chalky texture.   Previous to Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect, once gelcoat reached this point it was difficult to bring back to the high gloss finish without extensive manual restoration often involving wet sanding and/or polishing.

Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect will easily restore that high gloss shine as simple and as easy as cleaning the surface and applying the Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect.  NOTE:  Apply with a sponge, squeegee or spray on with a paint sprayer.  The smoothness of the surface will vary depending on the application method and the skill of the person applying the product.  A sponge will leave a surface that is sealed and protected from the elements and will shine but may have visible lines left from the sponge.  A squeegee can produce a smooth surface depending on the ability of the person applying the product.   If a smooth shiny surface with no visible lines is desired then spraying will produce the most desirable result.  The skill of the person spraying will determine the smoothness as the Gelcoat Restore and Protect is a thin water based product and runs easily when applied too thick.  NOTE, in all cases the first coat will soak into the gelcoat.  Apply a light first coat to seal the surface and then apply two more coats to achieve the shine you desire.

Once applied Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect instantly brings the original shine back to the surface.  One coat will make a substantial difference.  If you want more shine simply apply more coats of Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect.  Once applied Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect restores the gelcoat’s original highly durable surface that will endure up to a year without the need to reapply.

NOTE Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect is not designed to be used on painted surfaces. It will not hurt your paint but it is not the proper application for the product.   If your surface is painted then choose Machinist Mate Car Wax to bring out the shine and protect the surface.

 Apply between 60 and 95 Degrees F.

 

NOTE: Work with Gelcoat Restore and Protect on a surface similar to your project or on a surface out of site on your project prior to attempting to apply to your final project.  This is to get the feel of Gelcoat Restore and Protect and how it is applied, dries and how to obtain the best results for your application.

  1. Thoroughly clean the surface to be treated with Machinist Mate General Degreaser provided with the Restore and Protect kit.   NOTE:  IT IS IMPARATIVE THAT ALL DIRT, GREASE, BRAKE DUST, OIL, WAX, ETC. be fully and completely removed from the surface prior to applying Machinist Mate Restore and Protect.
  2. Liberally spray the area to be cleaned with Machinist Mate General Degreaser then vigorously scrub the entire surface with a soft brush or rag. Rinse thoroughly and repeat until clean.
  3. Let the surface dry completely. NOTE:  LET DRY COMPLETELY.
  4. Once the surface is clean and thoroughly dried. Thoroughly shake the Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect and pour a small amount onto a rag or sponge.  The rag or sponge should be fully wet but not running or dripping.
  5. When applying with a sponge or squeegee use smooth long even strokes. As the applicator begins to run out of Restore and Protect soak up more into the rag or sponge and continue to coat the entire surface with a thin and even coat.  Try to avoid heavy (white) applications in corners, cracks, or other surface irregularities.   If you have heavy liquid (white) areas, then dab the area with the applicator when it is partially dry.  The Gelcoat Restore and Protect should be applied in a thin even coat and the surface should look shiny.   If you cannot easily remove the excess in some areas, it will dry clear in about 10 to 20 minutes.
  6. The warmer the temperature the faster Gelcoat Restore and Protect will start to dry and will become unworkable.  Pay keen attention to the drying process of the Gelcoat and Protect on the surface you are working with and the temperature you are working in.  As Gelcoat Restore and Protect is applied you can go back over the surface (when applying with a rag, squeegee or sponge for a very short time.  Once it starts to dry if you attempt to go back over the surface it will leave the surface looking rough and marred to the point that it will not look good at all.  In the event you want to remove Gelcoat Restore and Protect either wash it off immediately with water while still wet or wait for it to dry then wet sand with 600+ grit paper.  once removed and dry you can once again reapply Gelcoat Restore and Protect. 
  7. Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect will dry to the touch in about 2 to 5 minutes when properly applied. Upon the surface drying to the touch then apply a second coat the same way as the first.  Let dry and then apply a third coat when dry.
  8. Let Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect fully cure for 6 to 8 hours after application.   Avoid getting the surface wet while drying.
  9. Machinist Mate Gelcoat Restore and Protect will not crack or peel when properly applied and will still be visible with a shine up to a year.
