Gel Coat Pigment

I also have a cream(at start of season) boat I use Blue Gee CLR4161 Stock Code 129060 60 ml for about £6 The instructions tell you what rate to add it to the gel coat at. I think it is about 10:1 I have lost my instructions that came with it I make it slightly lighter than recommended rate for the hull which has been slightly bleached. Whether they do a slightly lighter one or darker I do not know It is a commodity where you can buy much larger volumes for not alot more money

It is manufactured by Blue Gee Sales@bluegee.co.uk
