Water-Based Marine Paint For a Professional Finish
That Will Knock Your Socks Off
You want your boat...your baby...to have a spectacular finish you can be proud of. The difference between a homemade-looking boat and a professional-looking one is the finish work. System Three has developed a paint system that will give your boat that "knock-your-socks-off" look that separates the good from the excellent.
"I guess everyone has their own finish and like what they're used to working with, but I'm now completely sold on the SystemThree WR-LPU system. You can pretty much apply it with any method that you want, but you need to sand between every few coats."
"Put on plenty of finish so that you can comfortably sand it without sanding through to the epoxy and you're golden, you just sand up through the grits to 6000 with the trizac pads, then a little polishing and buffing and you have great finish."
"The SystemThree can be applied by anyone with next to no expertise and rudimentary equipment. I think part of the problem some people may have experienced with the SystemThree is due to following their directions which I think is written more to market the product as an easy and simple two coat process. You actually need to apply at least 6 coats, 10 is better, and you need to sand with 220 to 320 after every three to four coats."
"I wouldn't even consider working with anything other than SystemThree, it's just so easy and when you consider that you don't have to buy thinner, it's probably half the cost of everything else." Jeff Cobb, Squirt builder
"I know many people who have used epifanes with great results, but it really reeks with fumes. I chose System Three WR-LPU water based paints and clears. They roll on easily and do not smell. Water cleanup and water reduced. The trick with WR-LPU is to roll it on as thin as possible, do not overwork the stuff or reroll, keep a wet edge, and make sure humidity is around 50% or higher. You can recoat in about an hour and recoat as many times as you want in a day. Recoating must be done within 24 hrs to get a chemical bond. Wait a few days if you need to sand out any runs or curtains, but, you should not have any if you roll thin coats. Also mix new batches with every coat and wash out the roller for the next coat." - Roberta Hegy, Zip & Super Spartan builder
