Gel Coat Repair

  • Gel Coat includes:
    • Gel Coat
    • Hardener
    • Surfacing Agent
    • Easy-to-follow instructions
  • Apply gel coat, allow time to cure, wet sand and buff
  • Perfect for repairing large damaged areas, blistering, replacing worn gel coat and other cosmetic problems

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.

Colors are formulated using the best gel coat base and pigments to ensure the best color match possible. All matches are a 0.3 delta E or better using the latest Minolta color matching technology (Grade A match where the eye cannot detect a difference). Colors are guaranteed to match the factory original color standard.

Due to exposure and time, however, it is very likely that colors will not match your specific boat. Use Spectrum Color's Tint Adjustment Kit to adjust for shifts in color due to age and exposure.

There are many methods of applying gel coat. The use of Patch Aid is recommended, especially with LVOC colors.

Shelf Life
Gel coat has a shelf life of 6 months. After 6 months the solvent in the gel coat evaporates and the paste begins to break down chemically.

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.

Solid Product - no pun intended
by a Customer from Alexandria, Virginia on June 01, 2016
Easy to use - could be something here to simplify Mix of compound, hardener, etc. This was my first effort and cleaning up a 1986 Outrage and plenty of spot to work so more to come.

Desert tan gel coat
by Cynthia from Brooklin, Maine on February 23, 2014
The color match was very,very close to the old coating,1993, I think the gel oat needed more wax to make it harden less gummy, I wiped it with acetone and buffed it once, then I could wet sand it and buff it twice more to achieve the desired shine

I would like to spray Spectrum Gelcoat in a Preval sprayer. What thinner should I use and what ratio of thinner to gelcoat can I go up to, i.e. 25%?
Spectrum suggests you use Patch Aid. The ratio is 30% thinner to 70% gel coat.

What does the surfacing agent do and how is it applied?
The surfacing agent excludes the air from contacting the surface of the curing gel coat creating a hard, tack-free cure. It can be brushed on or rolled on.

If spraying what is the reformat time. Would the surface agent be mixed with the final coat and sprayed on?
If you don't use an additive it is 6-8 hours depending on the temperature. You add the surface agent in the final coat.
