Teamac Marine Gloss is a high quality, modified alkyd marine coating and has excellent gloss and opacity for metal, wood, grp and aluminium surfaces.
It is suitable for all general marine areas, bridge fonts, deck work, masts, superstructures etc.
Available in any colour including the Teamac Marine Card
Remove all loose and damaged existing coating and all marine growth. High pressure wash with fresh water. Areas of breakdown should be blasted or power tool cleaned. Touch up with Teamac Metacote Primer to the full existing film thickness. Prior to the application of the full coat ensure that surface is clean and free of all contaminates.
On aluminium, ideally abrade the surface to provide a "key", clean, then immediately coat with Metaclor Primer. When dry apply 2nd coat. If abrasion is not possible, the surface must be degreased and treated with 'T' Wash/Mordant solution (leave to react for 2 hours), follow the instructions on the pack. When this is clean and dry apply 1 or 2 coats of Metacote Primer,
On exposed metal and wood. Prime first with at least 2 coats of Teamac Metacote Primer (but not more than 3).
On GRP lightly abrade exposed surfaces and apply 2 coats of Teamac Metacote Primer.
New steel: Abrasive blast clean to Sa2½ and apply Teamac Metaclor Primer.
If applying onto shop-primed steel ensure that surface is dry and clean, and areas of damaged primer are suitably cleaned prior to the application of Metacote Primer.
