TotalProtect Primer and/or GelCoat on acrylic plastic ?

2 posts in this topic

Will TotalProtect Primer adhere to an acrylic plastic dome? My goal is to Gelcoat the dome, but I wasn't sure if it is necessary to prime it first with TotalProtect or if I can apply the Gelcoat directly to the plastic. Note that this will be for an above water component.

You will need to scuff up the acrylic with 80 grit sandpaper first, clean with acetone, then apply a couple coats of Total Protect sand smooth then the gelcoat.  Just not sure how long that system will hold up.
