The primer is necessary on all bare wood and helps in forming a chemical and mechanical bond with the COELAN transparent gloss coating product. In addition the primer contains Ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors to aid in prolonging the applied coating service life.
The application of COELAN Red Primer is a vital component in making COELAN Boat Coating Products among the most cost effective coating and finishing products in the world. COELAN coating will exceed application life of any traditional varnish or two part marine coating products. When COELAN Coating is applied in accordance with manufacturers guidelines the user can expect several years of use with no re-coating necessary.
COELAN Red primer is applied to sound, defect and damage free, clean, properly sanded bare hard and softwood surfaces. Depending on the porosity of the wood a minimum of two coats of primer are required prior to application of COELAN transparent gloss coating.
COELAN coating is a single component, proprietary micro-porous formulation facilitating a one way transfer of moisture into the atmosphere which prevents cracking or lifting of the coating. Significant cost saving associated with reduction in materials, maintenance frequency and labor can be achieved. The combined primer and COELAN coating system when properly applied will not require re-coating for many years and has been proven to be an extremely long lasting replacement for varnish and paint.
