Barrier Coat Repair…Fixing it right
I met with an old customer this week who is getting ready to barrier coat a 44′ sail boat his company built in the 70′s. He brought up the idea of using vinyl ester for the job. His reasoning was that vinyl ester would allow for easy wet out of the mat they would put on the boat to build back what they had peeled off when removing the blisters.
While they use MAS for some applications, he hasn’t ever used it to build back a bottom. He has used other epoxies for years and was concerned about the time it would take to wet through the glass with traditional brands. I had to remind him that our MAS Low Viscosity resin is formulated for just such projects… ease of wet out of heavy fabric and, yes, even mat! Yet another disaster avoided……remember epoxy is the right choice for all repairs to polyester and vinyl ester hulls and parts. Exceptional water barrier ability and adhesion value make it the right product to use. Also remember low VOCs and odor.
