TOPCOATS

POLYESTER URETHANE TOPCOAT BASE

For years, serious boat owners have demanded AWLGRIP® coatings systems to protect their valuable investments from harsh marine elements.

AWLGRIP® provides a durable high gloss finish to wood, fibreglass, aluminium or steel and can be applied with a roller, brush or spray gun.

With its superior resistance to sun, saltwater, chemicals and abrasion, AWLGRIP® is ideal for coating everything from topsides, cabin tops, decks and masts to engines.


ACRYLIC URETHANE TOPCOAT BASE

When topcoat application conditions are far from ideal, AWLCRAFT®2000 is the coating that will deliver a smooth, high gloss finish.

Producing a rich lustrous finish similar to our famous AWLGRIP®, AWLCRAFT®2000 is ideal for use in situations where dust or fluctuating temperatures are a potential problem or where faster project turn-around time is critical. Its unique, fast drying formula helps reduce dust-free time between coats.


AWLGARD INTERIOR URETHANE TOPCOAT
Awlgard is a waterbased urethane interior topcoat developed to provide a durable interior finish where solvent borne application is impractical. For interior use only.

With regular cleaning, Awlwash will help avoid the build-up of dirt and grease which can cause the finish to appear dull. Formulated to clean Awlgrip topcoats, Awlwash does not contain alkalies, acids or abrasives, unlike other "marine soap" products that are not suitable for use on painted surfaces. AwlwashT is 100% biodegradable. Awlwash is recommended prior to use of Awlgrip's Awlcare Protective Polymer Sealer and is available in an easy to dispense tip 'n measure quart bottle which can be refilled with the larger gallon-size container.

Awlwash has been extensively tested in Awlgrip laboratories and in the harsh marine environment. All tests conclude that this product is what our customers have requested for years - an effective detergent for cleaning yet still gentle for frequent use on Awlgrip, Awlgrip 2, and Alwcraft 2000
