Clean with SEM Soap and a gray scuff pad. Rinse with water or a clean, damp cloth and dry. Apply Plastic & Leather Prep and remove by wiping in one direction with a clean, damp, lint-free cloth or use Zero VOC Surface Cleaner. Dry. If contamination still exists, water will bead on the surface. Repeat this step until beading no longer occurs.
To promote adhesion on uncoated ABS, PVC and other similar plastics, apply a medium wet coat of Sand Free. Vinyl Coat should be applied while Sand Free is still wet. As the Sand Free evaporates, the Vinyl Coat is drawn into the surface, creating excellent adhesion.
To promote adhesion on TPO, EPDM, PP and other similar thermoplastics, use Plastic Adhesion Promoter or XXX Adhesion Promoter.
- Spray Marine Vinyl Coat
Shake well for two minutes and hold can 6-8” from the stencil. Apply light coats, allowing 5-10 minutes between coats.
Several thin coats will provide the best finish.
