The correct use: boat paints for wood and metal
Thanks to Belar H. for submitting it.
Belar wanted to paint, seal and protect his wood and metal canoe from harmful UV rays. For this he used the Halvar boat varnish in colorless.

You need- boat paint
- fine sandpaper
- possibly masking tape to mask off the area not to be coated
- paint roller, brush or cup gun
- if required a dilution (this can also be used afterwards to clean the device)
Preparation and processing
- The processing and especially the drying of boat paints should not take place below 10°C. This information relates to the paint material, substrate and room temperature during processing and the subsequent drying and curing time.
- Dust sources should be removed.
- Use painter's tape to mask off the areas that are not to be coated. Stir the paint well before use.
- The surface must be sanded before use and be clean, dry and free of grease, silicone and wax. You should definitely remove loose old paintwork or rust beforehand. Important: Do not use soapy cleaners or scouring milk. These are made from fatty acids and are therefore not suitable for dissolving fat.
- A primer is not necessary.
- If desired, dilute the boat paint with approx. 5 - 10% dilution.
- Spray, roll or brush paint. 1-2 coats are recommended.
The drying takes place after 3-8 hours. The product can then be painted over without any problems.
