How to prepare the surface?
Surface preparation is the key to success in any application.
Use a power washer to remove all algae, grime and surface contaminants.
Incorporate a good detergent to remove any oils, greases and fingerprints etc.
It’s best to remove all old paint and rough up the surface with a sanding disc or belt sander.
If there are several layers of paint, consider using a paint stripper then a high pressure power washer.
Lightly sand to roughen the surface to aid mechanical adhesion. Do not use an angle grinder with a sanding pad. This tends to dig into the aluminum skin and leave marks. An orbital sander or light sand blasting is preferred.
Be careful not to sand off rivet heads, but flattening the tops of them is ok.

Carry out any repairs to loose rivets, splits, holes etc If there are open joints, these should be fixed by riveting them shut or hammering them together. Use Casweld Aluminum brazing rods for hole repair.

If you are careful with the roller, there is no need to mask as the system is quite thixotropic and doesn’t run. If you prefer to, mask up all edges, use blue painters masking tape and remove before the coating cures.

The application needs to be done on a cool to warm day 60-70 degrees, low humidity and in the shade. Surface of the metal should be on the cooler side, but not cold as this will make the resin harder to work.

Mix the two parts of the Mud-skipper Hull Coating System together thoroughly and apply quickly and evenly with  the applicator provided or with a notched steel trowel using the fine tooth. This is merely to get an even coat on the job. As soon as you have spread out the material, run the roller over the surface with quick strokes to 'pull' the material to produce an orange peel effect. The more orange peel texture you have, the faster you'll go.

This operation should be done quickly as you have about 15-20 minutes at 70 deg f.
Remove the masking tape while the system is still soft, about an hour after application.
At this point, if the weather is dry and sunny, bring the boat into the open so it can warm up the aluminum. This will speed up the curing process.

Clean up using water with a dish washing liquid detergent.
