The correct use: Boat paints for wood and metal
On this page you will learn how to use our boat paints correctly.
- Boat paint
- fine sandpaper
- possibly. Painter's tape and masking paper to mask the area not to be coated
- Paint roller or brush (we recommend our Premium painting set X300)
- If necessary, a dilution (this can also be used afterwards to clean the device)
If you want to save money, we have developed our boat paint complete set from Hamburger Lack-Profi (consisting of boat paint and painting set) especially for you. It includes all the materials you need to give your boat a beautiful new coat of paint.
- The average consumption is around 7-8 sqm/l. However, this information may vary if you use thinner or apply thicker layers.
- The processing and especially the drying of boat paints should not take place below 10°C. Temperatures between 15°C and 25°C are ideal. Humidity should not be more than 65%. This information refers to the paint material, substrate and ambient temperature during processing and the subsequent drying and curing time.
- Remove possible sources of dust.
- Use painter's tape and paper to mask off the areas that should not be coated.
- The surface must be sanded before use and must be clean, dry, free of grease, silicone and wax. You must first remove any loose old paint or rust.
Important: Do not use soapy cleaners or scouring milk. These are made from fatty acids and are therefore not suitable for dissolving fat.
- If desired, dilute this with approx. 5-10% Thinner 700. Stir the boat paint well before use.
- Spray, roll or brush the paint in thin layers. One or two coats are recommended. Drying takes place after 12 hours. The product can then be easily painted over. After 7 days the paint is completely hardened.
