Spray Application

Is the hull and/or topsides slightly corroded, scratched or the colour faded by UV, a good polish should lift these out, if the extent of the damage is a bit more than  above or you would like to change the current colour scheme, then a re-spray is what you need.

There are a variety of paint systems out there for all materials types, here at JWS we primarily use a great system call Awlcraft 2000, although we are happy to use your preferred system if required, subject to it being fit for desire purpose.

AwlCraft is a ultimate super yacht quality topside gloss finish, its a 2 pack acrylic urethane coating with long last gloss and colour retention, available in a wide range of colours.

Process of a Hull Re-spray

Tape up hull for spraying: Tent off the super structure with polythene cover and run brown paper around the water line and toe rail edge to collect any overspray.

Sand hull and carry out vapour test: The vapour test is to check that there are no problems with the paint/hull structure, if the previous product is unknown then the new system (If different from old) may react to certain substrates on the hull.

Checking hull: After sanding we also go around and check for any defects in the hull, if any are found they are reported back to the owner, if a repair is required then this would be done at this time.

Priming the hull: We apply 4 coats of primer, we use Awlcraft 545 Epoxy primer for this.

Sand hull: Hull is sanded after the primer applied and re-taped where necessary ready for the topcoat application.

Clean hull down: The hull is wash down with fresh hot water, allowed to dry then clean down a further 3 times with a chemical hull cleaner.

Topside application: 4 coats of AwlCraft 2000 (Colour to owners preference) are applied to the hull by spray application.

Cravita line: Re-tape hull for cravita and waterlines around hull. remove cover tape to show old line markings and refine line and all polythene cover and brown tape.

Sand lines: Sand all lines and wash down after, clean all line with chemical cleaner allow to dry and tag rag down.

Spray lines: Apply 4 coats of AwlCraft 2000 (Colour to owners preference)

Clean up: De-tape and clean up working area. Remove all staging ready for the boat to be moved outside.

Transfers: This will be removed from bow, stern, transom etc upon start of works, we can supply new names in many fonts and sizes. These will be applied upon completion of topcoat spray.
