Such as described here: Barrier Coating

The hotter the day and the hotter the hull, the less chance of 'flow out' when dragging a cut roller; and, if youre 'late' or delayed in tipping out you can get 'tears', etc. in the surface. So, if youre going to use the 'tip with roller' method, you cant do this on the whole hull side and the barrier will start to 'kick' before you are finished tipping when its 'warm' outside.

The polyethylene trowel 'forces' the flow-out.
