Mixing and Reduction
Brush/Roll: Mix by volume two parts Awlgrip Topcoat Base Component with one part Awlcat #3/H3002 Brushing Converter until one smooth, homogenous mixture is obtained. Reduce 10–33% with T0031. Overall mix is 2:1:1⁄3–1 by volume. Example: 8 oz. Base, 4 oz. H3002, 1.3 - 4 oz. T0031.

AWLGRIP® colors should be applied over properly prepared 545 Primer or in brush/roller applications AWL-QUIK® Primer.
AWLGRIP® High Gloss Clear G3005 can be applied over dark AWLGRIP® colors which have been sanded with 320-400 grit paper. Do not apply G3005 over white or pastel colors. Do not apply G3005 directly to bare wood.

Reduce 25% to 33% with T0031. Overall mix is 2:1:3/4-1 by volume.
General: The primed surface must be clean and dry. Achieving maximum gloss and distinction of image requires the primer be smooth sanded with 220-320 grit paper before topcoat application. Using a contrasting mist coat of lacquer primer as a "guide coat" is recommended. Smooth sanding until all the "guide coat" is removed indicates a texture free surface.
Two to three coats are recommended for spray applications. Brush/Roller applications require two coats. Regardless of application method two coats is the minimum! Topcoating cannot be done in one coat!
Brush/Roller application: Apply AWLGRIP® Topcoat in two coats of 1.5 to 2.5 mils WFT each. Allow 16 hours between each coat. Sanding between coats with 280 to 400 grit paper will provide a smoother finish.
On large surfaces such as hull sides, transoms, and house sides, first roll the AWLGRIP® Topcoat and then smooth the roller stipple by lightly tipping the surface with a brush. This can be done with 2 painters working side by side (i.e., 1 rolling and 1 tipping), or with 1 painter rolling approximately 6 square feet and then tipping that area before rolling any further.
Do not apply paint materials to surfaces warmer than 105°F or colder than 55°F. Do not attempt to cure products at temperatures below 55°F.
