Uses and Benefits of MEK for Gelcoats

Superior Sprayability: MEK enhances the application of gelcoats, making them spray more easily and resulting in smoother, more even surfaces compared to using acetone.

Easy Application: To achieve these benefits, follow these simple steps:

  • Thinning: Add MEK to your gelcoat at a ratio of 10% MEK by weight (do not use more than 15%).
  • Catalyst: Add a catalyst at the standard 2% of the total weight of your gelcoat mixture.
