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.
DO I NEED TO GRIND OUT THE REPAIR OR SAND THE AREA BEFORE USING YOUR PRODUCT?
No. The only prepping required is that you clean and dry the surface. No sanding is required nor any other prepwork.
DO I NEED TO SAND THE SURFACE ONCE I HAVE APPLIED HAIRLINE FIX?
MagicEzy Hairline Fix dries silky smooth and with a gloss finish, so there is no sanding required, however we recommend polishing with a damp cloth and talcum powder.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DRY?
- Touch dry: 1 hour
- Cured: 2 hours
- Fully cured: 1 week
CAN I PAINT OVER THE PRODUCT?
Yes, with water-based paints.
WHAT IF THE CRACK WIDENS OR SHRINKS DUE TO TEMPERATURE CHANGES. HOW WILL THAT AFFECT THE HAIRLINE FIX REPAIR?
MagicEzy Hairline Fix is extremely flexible – it will stretch and shrink as your boat flexes. This means repairs are much more likely to hold. If stress cracks re-appear, MagicEzy Hairline Fix is easy to re-apply.

DO REPAIRS LAST?
MagicEzy repairs won’t chip or pull out. We guarantee that repairs will last for 3 years if the product is applied in accordance with instructions… or we’ll replace it OR your money back.
HOW DOES TEMPERATURE AFFECT IT?
