Awlgrip Topcoat is a polyester based high gloss polyurethane topcoat giving long lasting gloss and color retention. AwlGrip Topcoat Flat Black G2002 may be applied by brush/roller or spray. For application above the waterline only.
NOTE: Awlgrip Topside G2002 is a 3 component system that must be sprayed. You will also need to choose the appropriate Converter and a Reducer.

Spray Application: 530 Sq. Feet at 1 mil (25 microns) dry film thickness; 210 SQ. Feet at recommended dry film thickness.
Recommended Wet Film Thickness: 6-9 mils (150-225 Microns), Total of 2-3 Coats.
Recommended Dry Film Thickness: 2-3 mils (50-75 Microns), Total of 2-3 Coats.
Coverage calculations are calculated for mixed base and converter, reduced 25% and are based on a theoretical transfer of efficiency of 100%. Actual coverage rate obtained will vary according to equipment choice, application techniques, part size, and application environment.
Anticipated Cure Time at 77 F/ 50% R.H.: 24 hours to tape free, 3 days to light service, 14 days for full cure.
Awlgrip G2002 Flat Black should be applied over properly prepared 545 Epoxy Primer or 321 HS Undercoat.
Mixing & Reduction
Spray: Mix by volume two parts AWLGRIP G2002 Topcoat Base Component with one part AWLCAT #2 (G3010) Spray Converter to a smooth, homogenous mixture. Reduce 25-33% with T0002 spray reducer. At 33% reduction the overall mix is 2:1:1 by volume (8 oz. G2002 Base, 4 oz. G3010, 4 oz.
General: The primed surface must be clean and dry. The primer must be smooth sanded with 220-320 grit paper before topcoat application. Using a contrasting mist coat of lacquer primer as a "guide coat" is recommended. Smooth sanding until all of the "guide coat" is removed indicates a texture free surface. Three coats are recommended for spray applications.
Spray Application: Apply a light, smooth, slightly wet tack coat to the surface. Allow tack coat to "flash off" 30-45 minutes. Then apply a full, wet coat to achieve color coverage (i.e.hide) and film thickness requirements. If preferred, three coats may be used. Allow the second coat to "flash off" 30-45 minutes until only slightly tacky before applying third coat. In three coat applications, coats two and three are not "full, wet" coats. The second coat is a slightly heavy tack coat with the third coat just wet enough to obtain full hide (opacity) or color coverage.
Optimal Surface/Ambient Temperature range is 60-95°F (18-35°C). Proper Application and/or cure results may be more difficult to achieve when conditions are outside this range. Do not apply paint materials to surfaces less than 5° F(3°C) above dew point. Do not apply paint materials to surfaces warmer than 105°F (41°C). Ambient temperature should be minimum 50°F 10°C) and maximum 105°F(41°C). Not recommended for application to large expanses of surface as unequal gloss and appearance may result.
