Gel Coat Patch Paste Repair

  • Patch Paste is the factory gel coat color made into an easy-to-use paste
  • Kit includes:
    • 2oz gel coat paste
    • Hardener
    • Easy-to-follow instructions
  • Add hardener, mix thoroughly, apply to damaged area using a putty knife
  • Perfect for cosmetic repairs: small nicks, scratches, drill holes, worn areas

Patch Paste allows an inexperienced person to make professional gel coat repairs. The paste spreads like vaseline, sets in 5-15 minutes, and is ready to sand and buff in an hour.

Spectrum Color uses the latest and most advanced gel coats in the industry for formulating its products. Their products are superior for ease-of-application, cure, sanding and in returning a high-gloss finish when buffed.

Coloring
Colors are a perfect match to the original, new gel coat color. Based on exposure and time, boats older than 5 years may have a slightly noticeable difference in the gel coat color matches. Patch paste kits cannot be altered to match the "tint" of the weathered gel coat color. Tinting is available with quart and gallon sizes.

Use Instructions

  • Mix 1/2 of the gel coat paste bottle (1oz) with 10 drops of hardener. This mixing ratio must be kept or the gel coat may not harden.
  • Apply to the damaged area in work temperature between 65 and 90 degrees.
  • Allow to cure for 1-2 hours
  • Wet sand and buff with polishing compound to achieve a glossy finish

Shelf Life
Gel coat patch paste kits have a shelf life of 6 months. After 6 months the solvent in the kit evaporates and the paste begins to break down chemically.

Safety
When working with gel coat be sure to wear gloves and safety glasses. Typical use may also require acetone to clean the area, an application tool like a putty knife, finishing sand paper and a buffing tool.

Spectrum Gel Coat Patch Paste - Desert Tan
by Steven from Mims, Florida on September 27, 2016
Excellent color match. I found it easiest to apply using a piece of thin cardboard (from a cereal box or similar) just wider than the hole being filled. You can even cut the cardboard to a profile for curved surfaces.

As advertised except for color matching
by Stan from Baton Rouge, Louisiana on July 01, 2016
Product was easy to work with dried rack solid hard in hours, appears to be very tough and durable. However the color was not close to matching as advertised. It was significantly darker than my 1983 Whaler that has spent 99% of it's time out of the water and under a cover. I also tried a small patch on my friends '85 Whaler with similar results. I liked the product, but the color-match was a significant disappointment

Even though my wife's 13' whaler is a 1987 the gel coat color is nearly a perfect match!

Gel coat touch-up
by Robert from St. Johns County, Florida on June 20, 2015
Spectrum in St.Augustine was very helpful and their color match was spot on. The Gel coat paste has a viscosity like smooth peanut butter. Easy to apply and fill with a plastic putty knife. East to shape and sand out wants cured. The 2 oz kit goes a long way for gel coat touch ups.

Worked as advertised. Recommend
by Clinton from Kent, Washington on February 05, 2014
The product was a very good color match and was simple to use. Good instructions. I am glad I only used half at a time because it truly does harden in the mixing container within 15 minutes. Be careful to widen any hairline cracks (alot) so the product van penetrate. Very satisfied.

proper repair is appreciated
by Harlan from Mc Farland, Wisconsin on November 25, 2012
This kit is easy to work with and makes for a proper repair. There are other remedies out there for hull repair but this is best for appearance and integrity. I will reach for this and no other when the need arises.

It does what it says it does. Color does not match though, probably because most hulls will fade over time. I would buy again

Gel Coat Patch Paste Repair Kit
by Bennet from Seffner, Florida on May 08, 2012
Great product that matched the color perfectly, however, I ordered the same in the past and found that the shelf life is short and I had three bottles dry out. I am now only ordering what I ned for immediate use. Recommen others do the same. Attention todetail and you won't even know a repair has been made.
