awlgrip

Awlgrip, while beautiful when new , is ''easily'' scuffed, scratched, and in the case of dark colors, the contrast between the primer and topcoat makes matters worse.It can not be ''compounded -out'' as with gel coat.

My boat was awlgriped 6 years ago, and despite the use of terry cloth fender covers, still shows scuff marks. I would NEVER use a rubber fender directly on an Awlgrip finish, without a cloth cover. Also, Awlgrip is difficult if not impossible to repair. The dark colors are clear coated, and that gives some additional protection. Once damaged..your out of luck.

The company makes specific products for paint care such a awlwash, and a new protective buff- on finish, awl-care. I dont think either will help you at this point.
