durable coatings set a new standard for ease of use,
environmental safety, and cost. On the market since
the early 90's, System Three has made it possible for
skilled amateurs to achieve professional looking results.
Keep in mind that a quality paint job is the result
of 90% preparation and 10% application. The finest paints
in the world will not compensate for poor preparation.
WR-LPU is a time tested two-part, water
reducible polyurethane topcoat. It rivals solvent-based
paints in durability and weatherability, and contains
ultra-violet light absorbers for maximum life in the
sun. Apply at a rate of one gallon per 400 square feet.
Will require a minimum of three coats depending upon
thinning and application method. Allow for some overspray
when spraying. WR_LPU is available in twelve standard
colors. For complete instructions, properties, and tips,
refer to the paint application guide.

System Three coatings are designed to
work together as a complete system. Apply the primer
first to get a good coating build. The WR-LPU colors
will dry to a semi-gloss. For a full-gloss "wet
look" apply a coat of WR-LPU clear gloss as the
final coat. Like all LPU topcoats, WR-LPU is for use
above the water line, on boats left in the water. Boats
that are dry-sailed or left in the water for a couple
of weeks are not considered to be constantly immersed.
We have achieved good results applhying WR-155 primer
and WR-LPU topcoat over bare wood. However, the type
of wood, moisture content, and exposure to the elements
will affect the long term results. Bonus:
WR-LPU, clear or colored, can be applied directly over
System Three resin systems, without the primer.
