  1. Ian Heath asks 11 Oct 2019

    Hi
    I've got a model racing yacht that was painted by its previous owner using toplac . It has a light weight fibreglass hull. Unfortunately, he did not make a good job of and the finish is poor with loads of brush marks. how do I get it off without damaging the gel coat underneath? Best regards Ian

    1. David Shilling answers 11 Nov 2019

      Hi Ian
      Either by sanding or a GRP safe paint stripper like the below

    I have rubbed down my previously coated fibre glass oppi to generate a smooth finish and remove the numerous scratches from the seasons sailing. Do I need to apply an under coat before applying toplac and would one tin be enough for the bottom and sides of my oppi?

    1. David Shilling answers 13 Nov 2017

      Hi Mark
      One tin of 750ml will do 2 1/2 coats, possibly 3 and I would advise using a pre-kote as it really does help the build quality and as you have come this far I'm expecting you want a finished job that you are going to be proud of.
      If you get 2 coats of the pre-kote on you can mix a third coat using some or the Toplac to make a semi gloss coat which will use the paint up (better on the boat than sitting in the garage going off for the next 20 years!) and it will help the build quality of the paint
      I would advise rolling the paint on unless you are competent with a brush and if you need a kit the below link may help


      https://www.tridentuk.com/gb/4-inch-paint-tray-set-foam-roller-frame-r-554fs.html


      I would roll all the paint on but I may 'tip' the last coat with a quality brush. this is best done by 2 people,  one rolls the paint on and the other with a wetted brush (with paint) lightly knocks the spots of the gloss following the roller while the paint is very fresh.
      I would also try and put the coats of paint on within the time advised on the tin (which is temperature dependant) so there is no need to sand between coats, I would probably lightly wet and dry the boat before the final coat to get a great finish
      I hope that helps
      David

  3. Lionel Nightingale asks 6 Feb 2017

    Hi, should I use thinners with Toplac, and how much, it is wooden mirror dinghy, and does Pre coat require thinners
    Thanks Lionel

    1. David Shilling answers 6 Feb 2017

      Hi Lionel
      Toplac or Precoat shouldn't need thinning in UK temperatures if brushing or rolling on. You may get a better penetration into the wood grain with thinned precoat for the initial coat if bare wood is being coated for the first time but you should use a primer if this is the case
      Regards
      David

  4. hans orlent asks 13 Aug 2015

    what do you recommend as primer/undercoat/finish for a wooden fireball with coloured hull and varnished deck that needs complete sanding and repainting?

    1. David Shilling answers 13 Aug 2015

      Hi Hans
      The International pre-kote is a great primer/undercoat and you can mix it with Toplac to either use it up or just help the final coat become a similar colour to the toplac.
      For the varnish I'd recommend the International Clear Wood Sealer which will give you a great build quality followed by Compass Varnish which is an easy to apply, quick drying hard varnish
      That all sounds very biased towards International but these 4 products are great for your application
      I hope that helps

  5. Tim Gatti asks 5 Sep 2014

    With HVLP spray application...

    How long should I wait after spraying on the undercoat before I apply the Toplac gloss finish?

    (I have heard that it can take several days for the additional thinners to evaporate from the undercoat before the Toplac can be safely applied)

    1. Kieran Parslow answers 5 Sep 2014

      <p>Hi, thanks for the question. When applying Toplac by spraying, the Pre-Kote must be aged a minimum of 14 days. All of our International products have a link to their Product Datasheet at the bottom of each product page. Best Regards, Kieran Parslow</p>

  6. Dave asks 27 Aug 2014

    Is Toplac high gloss brilliant paint self-undercoating, non-yellowing, and what is the VOC content exactly please? Thanks

    1. Kieran Parslow answers 27 Aug 2014

      <p>Hi, Toplac requires an undercoat, <a href="http://www.tridentuk.com/gb/catalogsearch/result/?q=international+pre-kote">International Pre-Kote</a> is recommended for GRP, Wood, Steel and Aluminium. Using Toplac colour Snow White as an example, the VOC content is 404(g/l). Best Regards, Kieran Parslow</p>
