Product Description
toonbrite Toon-brite Protective Clear-Coat provides years of protection against oxidation, weathering, stains, UV rays, corrosion, salt spray, and electrolysis. It also makes re-cleaning a snap. Formulated for both metal and fiberglass hulls, Clear-Coat will work on aluminum, fiberglass, brass, copper, stainless, and most metal surfaces. Clear-Coat rejuvenates and restores faded or oxidized surfaces to "like new" condition. Clear-Coat will not chip, crack, or peel. The surface must be clean and dry before applying. Clear-Coat is easily applied using foam paint brushes or it can be sprayed. One gallon covers 800 to 1200 square feet. Ships ground only.

Note: Clear-Coat is not an anti-fouling paint.


Clear-Coat Applications
Clear-Coat can be applied to aluminum, fiberglass, copper, brass, stainless steel, or any other surface you want to keep from staining and discoloring. Once applied, Clear-Coat is virtually invisible on all surfaces other than a high-polished surface. On a high-polished finish, Clear-Coat, when wiped, can sometimes leave a slight sheen. This will lessen some with a second coat and tends to diminish with time.

Clear-Coat can also be applied to dull painted surfaces that are beginning to get chalky and oxidized. Clear-Coat will prevent the chalky finish from returning as well as bring back a rich shiny finish.

Clear-Coat Protection
Clear-Coat will protect your surfaces from oxidation, stains, weathering, salt spray, UV rays, corrosion, and electrolysis. It will never yellow or discolor in the sunlight. However, Clear-Coat is not an anti-fouling paint and not designed to prevent moss or algae from growing on your boat hull.

Clear-Coat protection lasts. On boats that are kept on the trailer or on a lift, it's not uncommon to get 3 to 4 years of protection. If you leave your boat in the slip all season long, protection from the water line down should last a couple of years or more. However, there are too many variables such as water conditions, content, and severity of marine growth to determine exactly how long your protection will last. But from the water line up, you can expect the same protection as any other boat.

Applying Clear-Coat
Clear-Coat can be applied using a foam brush or cotton cloth, or it can be sprayed on depending on the surface texture and the desired finish. Generally speaking, for a smooth finish, the preferred method is to paint it on with a foam brush. For Dealers or Manufacturers, when spraying Clear-Coat, dilute it with acetone up to a 50/50 ratio.

One gallon of Clear-Coat will cover about 800 - 1200 sq.ft. This means to put two coats on a 24-ft. pontoon boat will take about 1/2 gallon. Although not required, it is strongly recommended to apply at least two coats. Since Clear-Coat is a clear liquid, it's very easy to miss spots. By applying a second coat, you almost eliminate the chance of missing any spots.

You can put the second coat on immediately, but it's better if you allow Clear-Coat to cure first. Although Clear-Coat dries to the touch in about 15 minutes, it can take anywhere from 2 or 3 hours up to 24 hours for Clear-Coat to cure, depending on temperature and humidity.

Clear-Coat can be applied at any temperature, but you will get a better finish at 50°F than at 90°F. You can apply Clear-Coat in the sun, but try to avoid direct sunlight if at all possible.

Years later when it's time to reapply Clear-Coat, there is no need to remove the previous Clear-Coat application before reapplying. Just clean the surface with Toon-brite Aluminum or Fiberglass Cleaner and apply the new coat of Clear-Coat.

              This product cannot be applied with a cotton cloth without runs. It is a thin liquid and runs very easily. I found that spraying it is much better, however, you must keep it stirred so the the complete mixture is being applied.

                Do you have or could you recommend a marine clear coat paint. The finsh on my fiberglass boat needs to be lightly sanded and have a clear shine coat put on it. The paint and color are good just needs a new clear coat put on for the shine. For either a spray gun or a roller.

                  A:

                  No this product is to add a protective clear coat to your boat. You will need to use an oxidation remover before applying this product to remove the oxidation.

                  No. This is more of a clear coat that protects your boats surface against stains and oxidation.
