New Nautical Coatings Unveils New Epoxy System

Clearwater, FL, February 26, 2014 --( Just launched into the world of boating maintenance is Sea Hawk’s new Hawk System, manufactured by Sea Hawk Paints, a division of New Nautical Coatings, Inc. It is a state-of-the-art system for building and repairing boats, planes, surfboards, canoes, and many other substrates. The Hawk System is an easy to use, low-viscosity, low blush epoxy system that makes building and repair jobs a breeze.

“Building and repairing fiberglass structures is a demanding process that requires strict adherence to proper procedures,” reported Erik Norrie, CEO of New Nautical Coatings. “The foundation of our system is our HS-15 Epoxy Resin which fulfills all of the different application needs with its eleven-part catalyst and fairing options,” he said. “Bonding, fairing, coating, waterproofing and air exchange reduction have never been simpler.”

Any of the six Hawk System Fillers can be used with any combination of Hawk System Resin and Catalysts, giving the user a large range of epoxy blends, all within a single system. “If you need a fast cure due to schedule constraints or if you need a very thick fairing compound, the Hawk System has the situation covered,” Norrie said. After the application is cured, it can be sanded into a fine-tuned shape for the highest-quality finish. The Hawk System’s color-coded sizing procedure ensures accuracy.

The HS-15 Epoxy Resin is used for general fiberglass repair and construction for superior adhesion, strength, bonding, filling, and moisture barrier. Catalysts include the HS-25 Fast Cure, HS-26 Slow Cure, HS-27 Clear Finish and HS-29 Ultra Slow. The catalyst to choose depends on many factors such as air temperature, structure requirements and required working time. Fillers include HS-43 Light Density Adhesive Micro Fiber, HS-44 High Load Adhesive Fiber, HS-45 Bridging Adhesive, HS-46 Structural Adhesive, HS-47 Light Density Fairing and HS-41 MicroSphere Fairing.

Sea Hawk’s Research and Development Team takes pride in its never-ending pursuit of innovative marine coatings, repair supplies and epoxy solutions to solve contemporary problems. “We’re constantly experimenting with new formulas to provide peak performance and simplify application processes,” said Norrie. “From environmentally-friendly solutions to bio-engineered technologies, we have consistently created new, ground-breaking products every year.”

New Nautical Coatings, Inc., manufacturer of Sea Hawk Paints, was established in 1978. Sea Hawk’s mission is to provide boat owners around the world with the highest quality, most pleasurable to use, application specific solutions for protecting and enhancing the longevity and performance of their vessels.
