    Comments about Bilgekote Enamel:

    I found the Interlux Bilgekote to be a good finish. I used this product to paint my bunk boards before installing carpet as I had used marine grade plywood to fabricate my bunks. I also used this product to coat out the inside, unseen areas of the hull in my custom built boat. I intentionally left the painted bunks outside in the weather for several weeks and monitored the conditions. I found that water immediately beads up on the cured Bilgekote indicating no penetration. I used 2 coats of Bilgekote over 3 coats of the Interlux Epoxy Primekote. User should be aware that sanding between coats is not required if re-coated within the specified time. User should allow enough solvent / reducer for clean-up in addition to thinning for application. User will find it helpful to review the product data sheet available online, particularly the helpful hints section.

        The odor was less strong than another bilge paint used previously. Coats easily, Dries hard, no streaks.

                  Use good surface prep. Two coats a must for best results. Can roll or brush. Cleans up with thinner. Really smells when drying, ventilate and wear a respirator if working in a confined space.
