Multi-season paint for superior protection against hard and soft growth in high fouling waters and can re-launch after extended haul-out while retaining original antifouling properties. Perfect for powerboats and sailboats and can be applied directly over properly prepared ablatives, epoxies and vinyl's and most any other hard or ablative bottom paints.
Surface Prep: Surface must always be clean, dry and properly prepared prior to painting. Failure to do so will lead to eventually blistering and or peeling. All sanded surfaces must be wiped clean with Dewaxer -973 to remove sanding residue.
General Application: For use on boats below the true waterline. Can be brushed or rolled on fiberglass, wood, steel and previously painted surfaces per application systems below. Do not use on aluminum. Apply at least 2 coats for best performance as the life o f the paint is proportional to the number of coats applied.
Theoretical Coverage: Depending on surface conditions, one gallon of bottom paint will usually cover over 400 feet of surface when brushed or rolled.
Estimated Dry Times: Can be overcoated after 3-4 hours at 75 degrees. Prior to launching, allow a minimum dry of overnight. If drying conditions are poor, or if paint was applied to othickly, longer periods of drying will be required. Fresh coats of paint must be thoroughly dry before over coating.
