545 Epoxy or other

4 posts in this topic

Hello all, I’m new to boat refinishing! I used to spray autos and such. I have a few parts to paint and curious if 545 Epoxy final primer can be sprayed like an automotive sealer? Meaning: I need a sealer to bond Awlcraft 2000 to a Nav/Satellite orb and a spot light housing. Must I spray, wait till the next day, sand and spray or can I let it dry an hour or more and just spray over it with the 2000 topcoat?

You don't need to spray the 545, you can roll it.  Wait a minimum of 12 hours sand then spray the Awlcraft 2000.

It’s not the spraying that’s issue. It’s the time. Curious if there is a faster method. Blows my mind to spray anything and have to wait till the next day to prep all over again. I’m just painting add on items was curious if they could just be scuffed and sprayed in color. Or a 1 hour no sand sealer.

You can just scuff and spray if you are applying Awlgrip topcoat on top of Awlgrip topcoat, anything else needs the 545 primer.
