Mixing and Reduction
Spray: Mix by volume one part Awlgrip Topcoat Base Component with one part Awlcat #2/G3010 Spray Converter to a smooth, homogenous mixture. Reducer addition level required to achieve 14 seconds viscosity (DIN4 or equivalent) varies color to color. For standard conventional spray application this can be attained by adding up to 25% reducer using the correct spray reducer(s) appropriate for conditions. Example: (8 oz. Base, 8 oz. G3010, 4 oz. Reducer.) If a 25% reduction is used, overall mix is 1:1:1⁄2 by volume. Clear coats and painting in high temperature conditions may require additional 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.

Surface Preparation

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.

Mixing & Reduction

Brush/Roller: Mix by volume two parts AWLGRIP® Topcoat Base Component with one part AWL-CAT® #3/H3002 Brushing Converter until one smooth, homogenous mixture is obtained. Reduce 25% to 33% with T0031. Overall mix is 2:1:3/4-1 by volume.
Example: 8 oz. Base, 4 oz. H3002, 3-4 oz. T0031.

Application Instructions

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.
