APPLICATION AND USE:
Preparation: PREVIOUSLY ANTIFOULED SURFACE
In Good Condition: All fouling and contamination must be thoroughly removed including the leached layer. Use close high pressure fresh water wash (3000 psi/207 bar) and/or scraping and wet sanding with 80-120 grit paper. If old antifouling is incompatible or unknown, seal with suitable International Paint barrier/sealer coat.
In Poor Condition: Remove all loosely adhering and flaking material and sand all areas. Areas taken back to substrate should be treated as for new. If old antifouling is incompatible or unknown, seal with suitable International Paint barrier/sealer coat.

PRIMING: For suitable primers, consult Yachtpaint.com or contact your local International Paint Representative.
NATURAL GRP: Degrease with solvent or suitable detergent cleaner. Sand well using 180-220 grit paper. Clean thoroughly and allow to dry completely. Pre-prime using an International primer as detailed for specific coating systems.
STEEL: Degrease with solvent or suitable detergent cleaner. Clean thoroughly and allow to dry completely. Pre-prime using an International primer as soon as possible (within 8 hours) as detailed for specific coating systems.
LEAD: Degrease with solvent or suitable detergent cleaner. Sand well using 120 grit paper or power wire brush.
Clean thoroughly and allow to dry. Pre-prime using an International primer as detailed for specific coating systems.
NATURAL WOOD/PLYWOOD: Sand smooth with 80-180 grit paper and then 280 grit paper. Remove sanding dust by brushing, dusting and wiping, or other suitable method. Clean thoroughly and ensure surface is dry. Prime using an International primer as detailed for specific coating systems.

Method: Apply 2 coats per season on the hull. 3 coats are required on the leading and trailing edges, waterline, rudder and keel.
This is important for best performance. If a 2 seasons protection is required, apply 3 coats on the hull and 4 coats on the leading and trailing edges, waterline, rudder and keel. The more product is applied, the longer the antifouling protection. The boat can be left out of the water after application of the antifouling for up to 12 months before launching.
Useful tips: Mixing: Stir well before use Thinner YTA085 Thinners No.3
Thinning is not recommended.
Cleaner YTA085 Thinners No.3
Airless Spray Pressure: 176-210 bar. Nozzle diameter: 2180.

Other: For Airmix spray application: Pressure: 2.5 bar. Nozzle diameter: 20-113. True colour will develop after immersion. It is important to apply the product quantity calculated on the basis of the spreading rate, and if necessary with an extra coat.  It is also important to respect the thicknesses as advised to obtain the best results.
Some Important Points: To prevent poor results, ensure the correct amount of paint is applied using the coverage/spreading rate as a guide. Product temperature should be minimum -5°C and maximum 35°C. Ambient temperature should be minimum -5°C and maximum 35°C. Substrate temperature should be minimum 1°C above dew point and maximum 35°C.

Compatibility/Substrates:
GRP, wood, steel/iron, lead. Not suitable for use over aluminium/alloy substrates or zinc-plated surfaces. Can be applied directly over most types of antifoulings, provided they are in sound condition
Number of Coats: 2-3 by brush/roller
Coverage/spreading rate (Theoretical) - 10.0 m²/lt by brush; 3.0 m²/lt by spray.
Recommended dry fiilm thickness per coat 60 microns
Recommended wet film thickness per coat 100 microns wet
Application Methods Airless Spray, Brush, Airmix, Roller
