Designed from the ground up for the marine environment, ALEXSEAL® Yacht Coatings offers an innovative and comprehensive system for yacht construction, refit and maintenance. High quality and superior performance are achieved by producing the best products at every level of the system.
ALEXSEAL Protective Primers offer maximum protection on metal substrates. Our primers are based on technology that have been protecting aircraft, industrial machinery and yachts for decades, and is expressly designed to safeguard aluminum and steel surfaces from corrosion creepage. With ALEXSEAL, you always have the option to choose the coating system that is right for your project, while also complying with local regulations.
ALEXSEAL Fairing Compounds offer a solvent-free application process with terrific holding and sanding properties. These lightweight compounds mix easily, minimize trapped air pockets, and quickly sand to a smooth surface.
ALEXSEAL’s High Build Surfacers are up to 4 times thicker than competitors providing a smoother, quality yacht surface, in a faster application process. Our suite of surfacing products includes Fine Filler 303 and Super Build 302. These products literally fill different niches but work in concert to achieve the finest possible yacht surface before applying the final protective layers.
ALEXSEAL Finish Primers provide a superior build and an excellent base for the final topcoat. These characteristics help to minimize “print-through” of the substrate and can reduce the need for additional application coats. Finish Primer 442 exhibits excellent adhesion to a variety of substrates, exceptional sanding characteristics and good film build.
The ALEXSEAL epoxy primer and filler systems seal the substrate surface and provide exceptional longevity—often lasting decades. The result is that when you paint your boat with the ALEXSEAL system, you have a superb underlying foundation for the final protective finish. When an ALEXSEAL topcoat needs to be refreshed or the customer desires a new color, the previous system often remains intact, saving substantial labor and material costs.
Representing the final layer, ALEXSEAL Premium Topcoat 501 is a durable and repairable product providing a breath-taking distinction of image and unmatched performance. Both the T (solid color) Series and M (metallic) Series offer the finest attributes of marine topcoats. The Metallic Series is a two-stage system requiring an additional clear coat layer for protection. By its very nature, polyester-based polyurethane is much more durable than re-purposing softer, acrylic automotive paints for marine use. The T Series of 501 Premium Topcoat also exhibits uniform color pigmentation throughout the film layer in most colors, making it more easily repairable than competing urethane topcoats.
Our sales representatives and technicians also have a wealth of burgeoning new products at their fingertips. Mankiewicz’s “Solid” Base Coat / Clear Coat system, adapted from the aviation industry, is one example of another product that is seeing increasing success in marine applications. In the past few years, ALEXSEAL has successfully launched a variety of products, including Waterborne Topcoat, Spot Primer, Washdown Concentrate and a Polymer Sealer, all designed to suit the specific needs and with direct input from yacht construction associates.
ALEXSEAL is committed to developing, providing and supporting, the finest individual products and full-system of yacht coatings available for marine use. From fairing to finish, the ALEXSEAL system provides coatings solutions capable of maintaining the longevity, integrity and beauty of your vessel, even in the harshest of marine environments.
