Z*Spar is an excellent initial gloss, high gloss retention, and overall long life. Brushes beautifully without brush marks. Self-leveling qualities give glass like finish.
Z*Spar Enamel is a traditional modified long oil alkyd of exceptional all-around durability. Famous for extraordinary gloss and gloss-retention. #99 Solid Coat contains a very high loading of titanium dioxide for maximum hiding power. Z*Spar Enamel is a superb finish for all topside surfaces of wood, metal or fiberglass.

Prior to application, surfaces to be painted must be free of all dirt, peeling paint, rust, oil, grease, wax and other interfering materials.
Fiberglass: Wash with soap, ammonia and water. Let dry, then clean thoroughly with Z*Spar T-1132 Fiberglass Prep Solution. Sand with 220 grit sandpaper. Clean off sanding dust thoroughly by vacuuming and/or airblasting followed by wiping with a clean tac-rag. If surface is slightly rough or porous, prime with Z*Spar 105 White Undercoater.
Old Paint All existing painted surfaces in good firm condition should be lightly sanded. All existing paint in poor condition (cracked, blistered, peeling) must be removed and surfaces treated as new.
New or Bare Wood: Surfaces must be sanded with 180-220 grit sandpaper. Remove sanding dust by vacuuming and/ or airblasting followed by wiping with a clean tac-rag. Surfaces should then be sealed with Z*Spar S-120 Clear Sealer. After the sealer has dried, apply one coat of Z*Spar 105 White Undercoater. Sand undercoater with 220 grit sandpaper before applying Z*Spar Topside Enamel.
Aluminum: Sand with 180-220 grit sandpaper. Clean off sanding dust before applying paint. Apply one coat of Z*Spar P-707 Prime-All Primer before applying Topside Enamel. Z*Spar 105 White Undercoater can be used over P-707 Prime- All Primer for smoothing surfaces if desired.
Steel: Surfaces must be well sandblasted or sanded to remove all millscale and rust. Then apply 2 coats of Z*Spar P- 646 or 340 Gold Epoxy Primer. Z*Spar 105 White Undercoater can be used over P-646 or 340 Gold for smoothing surfaces if desired. NOTE: When removing sanding dust from a sanded surface, DO NOT use thinner solvent, gasoline or a dirty rag. DO use a tac-rag, vacuum, air blast or a clean dry cloth. NOTE: If filling or fairing of nonsubmerged surface is required use #1 or #2 White Glazing Putty after the first coat of 105 White Undercoat.
Application: Brush, roller, conventional or airless spray. For brush application reduce with approximately 5-10% T-10 Thinner, or T-11 Thinner in excessively hot weather and apply in full wet coats. For spray application thin with 15-20% T- 8 Thinner and spray on two coats approximately 15-20 minutes apart. The first coat should be a light coat and the second coat should be a medium coat. If the second coat cannot be applied within 20 minutes, allow an overnight dry between coats. An alternate spray method would be to apply two full coats allowing a 24 hour drying time between coats and sanding with 280-320 grit sandpaper prior to the final coat.
