  3. Apply a minimum of 6 coats for full protection (Minimum of 250microns dry film thickness per scheme). For ease, alternate the grey and green colours starting with green and ending with grey.
Apply 2 coats only provided there is a gelcoat on the inside of the hull If no gelcoat, use Gelshield solventless epoxy. It is recommended you consult a Marine Surveyor regarding the condition and moisture content of your laminate/ gelcoat prior to the application of Gelshield 200. Failure to do so could lead to the premature failure of the coating scheme. Ask International for more details.
