- Traditional alkyd-based marine enamel
- Bright, high gloss finish
- Excellent flow and levelling properties
- Superior hide, gloss and color retention
These high quality, topside alkyd-based enamels have been proven performers for over 40 years. Premium Yacht Enamels are superb for yacht applications including topsides, decks, fashion striping and boot tops.
They are easily applied straight from the can with brush or spray over properly prepared new or previously painted wood, metal or fiberglass surfaces. A tough finish is achieved that normally lasts 2-3 years prior to recoating. Application conditions are not as critical as the high performance coatings but the temperature should be above 50°F (10°C).
All paint colors shown here are for guidance only. Due to differences in screen displays that are beyond our control, the colors on these pages cannot be guaranteed to match the actual color in the can.
