Re: Paint, Sand, Varnish

In most cases, the primer will be much softer (easier to sand / less durable to abrasion) than the topsides paint. If you don't sand most of it off, then you would have a relatively soft layer between the hard outer shell of the poly paint and the hard inner layer(s) of epoxy. The primer would be the weakest link.

The Pre-Kote Product Data Sheet states: "Apply 1-2 coats. Depending on surface condition. Allow the necessary overcoating time between applications. Sand between primer coats with 120 grade (grit) paper until translucent. Remove sanding residue with a rag dampened with Brushing Liquid 333. Apply finish coats. Sand with 220 grade (grit) paper between Pre-Kote and finish enamel."

The product guides are available on-line from the Product Guide section of the Interlux website...
