Color Selection and Matching

WHAT COLOR MATCHES MY PARTICULAR BOAT?

There are many different color boats available and although your boat may originally have been a certain model and color finish, many things affect this over time such as age, fading etc. It is best to match the existing color of your boat to our color chart.

WHICH COLOR WHITE IS THE BEST MATCH?

Snow White is our most popular white. It is a pure white. Both Snow White and Matterhorn White are gray based whites. Our cream based whites are Oyster White, Eggshell White followed by Cream.
If you are unsure, it is best to select a shade slightly lighter rather than darker, as darker repairs may appear as a shadow and draw your eye to the repair area more.

I’VE PURCHASED TWO TUBES OF YOUR PRODUCT. HOW DO I COLOR MIX?

We have found it easy to mix the colors together on a plastic lid using the level end of the tube. When you have achieved the desired color, apply the product with the end of the tube. Or mix enough of each color in some transparent sandwich / plastic wrap then place next to the damage to match the color.

CAN I ADD OTHER TINTS OR COLORANTS TO THE PRODUCT TO ACHIEVE A COLOR MATCH?

No. Mixing additional products compromises the adhesion and effectiveness of MagicEzy products. We do not guarantee any products that have been mixed with other additives. However, two of our products can be mixed together to achieve an appropriate color match.

CAN I MIX 9 SECOND CHIP FIX AND HAIRLINE FIX TOGETHER?

Ideally, we recommend two or more colors of the same product be mixed together. Whilst the products are compatible with each other, mixing different consistencies may achieve a different finished repair.

IS THERE YELLOW IN THE COLOR RANGE?

We do not have yellow at this point. We may add additional popular colors to the range.

Application

HOW DO I APPLY?

Please view our Application Instructions or watch a How to Apply video.

HOW CAN I REPAIR A VERTICAL SURFACE?

When repairing a non-horizontal surface, most fillers sag. To prevent, simply apply MagicEzy 9 Second Chip Fix using the instructions then after the 2nd LEVEL, blow a hot hairdryer on the repair for 2 minutes. A skin has now formed and the product won’t slump.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DRY?

  • Touch dry: 1 hour

  • Cured: 2 hours

  • Fully cured: 1 week

WHY DOESN’T IT DRY INSTANTLY?

With products that dry in seconds, it is difficult to create a silky-smooth repair. It’s also difficult to remove smears. 9 Second Chip Fix is easy to apply and the unique drying process maximises the strength and durability of the repair.

COLD WEATHER DRYING?

Temperatures below 20oC – 70oF require drying by a hot hair dryer on the surfaces at 2 inches or 50mm for 2 minutes.

HOW DO I ACHIEVE A GLOSS FINISH?

Even though MagicEzy 9 Second Chip Fix has a matte finish, you can achieve a gloss look. Simply apply a piece of clear adhesive tape over the repair and leave for a few weeks until fully cured. This compresses the repair and creates a smooth, glossy finish. Or – coat with MagicEzy Hairline Fix which has an even better gloss finish.

HOW CAN I ACHIEVE A SMOOTH REPAIR?

Obviously each repair that is carried out is up to the skill and patience of each person doing it – some people will have better results than others.MagicEzy 9 Second Chip Fix is a matte finish – when doing repairs, squeeze an amount into the damage that is not overfilling the chip, but more so almost the closest amount required to fill with minimal spread outside of the area as there is less to clean up and the temptation to over wipe the area results in a less smooth repair.Take your time, fill as close as possible with the amount needed and wipe gently with the end of the tube to get as level as possible. Don’t be tempted to keep touching it up, let the repair dry and finish with Hairline Fix if you are wanting a gloss finish.

CAN I SAND THE PRODUCT ONCE DRIED?

Yes. Please allow 7 days for the product to fully cure before sanding.

CAN I PAINT OVER THE PRODUCT?

Yes, with water-based paints.

HOW DOES TEMPERATURE AFFECT IT?

MagicEzy 9 Second Chip Fix works well in both hot and cold climates however we don’t recommend its use below 10 oC/ 50o F.

HOW DOES MOLD AND MARINE GROWTH AFFECT IT?

The product contains antibacterial properties that make it resistant to mold and marine growth.
