Q:In reference to Overton's Tuff Coat. I own an aluminum boat and some of the paint is bubbled from corrosion , the majority of the paint is in great condition with just a few places that will have to be sanded to bare metal. Question is. Do I have to buy both primers for the metal and the paint surfaces ? Sanding the complete topside of the gunnel is not an option.Asked on 3/8/2015 by Shishkabob
A:Thank you for your question.
Per the mfg:
"In cases like this, our MP-10, Self Etching primer should work just fine. The prep is everything and he needs to ONLY clean with soap/water, simple green or a good bio-degradable degreaser like ZEP Purple."
Hope that answers your question.Answered on 3/17/2015 by Anonymous

Q:I am looking at redoing the deck of my boat with the non skid product line. If the substrate is wood but has metal hatches, is the metal primer mandatory for the hatches or can I only use the epoxy hardener and primer before the Non-skid top coat?Asked on 10/29/2013 by Ed from Thunder Bay, Ontario
A:Per manufacturers specifications, the metal primer should be used because it etches into the metal providing a better bond with the non-skid application.Answered on 10/30/2013 by Product Expert from Overton's
