Narrowboats

For the Narrowboat sector the main products which are used are Tractol and Tekaloid. For the colours they will be either on the Tekaloid colour charts or RAL or British Standard charts, if you can’t find the colour code required please supply us with a sample panel and we will match directly to this and send the sample panel back with the goods. 

Tractol Application:

  • Preparation –  You can use one of our grey or red scotchbrite to key back the surface you are applying to. Then use one of our Tak Cloths to remove any excess dirt and dust. You can also use our Panel Wipe to remove any grease. 
  • Primer – We can supply different primers for different bare materials/surfaces (Tekaloid BDX Primer used for wood, Cellulose Etch Primer for Metal). 
  • Topcoat – This will be used over the primer, this will be brush/roller applied to the surface. 
  • Lacquer/Varnish – You can use our Extra Pale Varnish, however this is not required but can be used for extra protection.
