APPLICATION AND USE
PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACE:
In Good Condition: All fouling and contamination must be thoroughly removed including the leached layer. Use high pressure fresh water wash (3000 psi/207 bar) and/or scraping and wet sanding with typically 80120 grade paper. Do not dry sand. If old antifouling is incompatible or unknown, seal with suitable International Paint barrier/sealer coat.
In Poor Condition: Use Interstrip to remove all traces of antifouling.
PRIMING: All preparation for bare substrates is covered on the appropriate primer datasheet.
BARE GRP: Prime with Gelshield 200 for osmosis protection, or Primocon or Interprotect.
STEEL/IRON/LEAD/WOOD: Prime with Interprotect or Primocon.
PLYWOOD: Prime with Epiglass followed by Interprotect.
Mixing: Thoroughly stir until product is mixed to a uniform consistency before use.
Thinning: Thinning is not recommended. Antifouling performance can be compromised if correct dry film thickness is not applied.
Cleaner: YTA085 International Antifouling Thinner #3.
Ventilation and Humidity Control: Ensure adequate ventilation during use.
Other: Antifoulings should only be wet sanded. Never dry sand or burnoff old antifouling. True colour will develop after immersion.
Points To prevent premature failure, ensure the correct amount of paint is applied using the coverage as a guide. Product temperature should be minimum 5°C/41°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 5°C/41°F and
maximum 35°C/95°F. Substrate temperature should be 3°C/5°F above dew point and maximum 35°C/95°F.
If you are regularly travelling at high speed (eg 30 knots) you might experience early wear through. Consult your local International Paint Representative for further advice if you are unsure about the suitability of Cruiser 250 for your specific requirements.
Suitable for use on GRP, wood, steel/iron and lead. Not suitable for use over Aluminium/Alloy substrates or zinc sprayedsurfaces.
Can be applied direct over most types of antifoulings, provided they are in sound condition, with the exception of VC17m/PTFE antifoulings. Consult your local International Paint representative for specific overcoating advice if you are unsure about compatibility of Cruiser 250 over your existing coating scheme.
