Self-polishing antifouling formulated with copper thyocianate, for use on all type of boats, including aluminium and light alloys. Suggested for medium speed boats up to 30 knots. The application of minimum 2 coats of antifouling is recommended.
SURFACE PREPARATION AND APPLICATION PROCEDURE
Bare Steel bottom: Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND AM-9 on sandblasted steel according to SA 2-2,5 and let dry for 12-24 hours. Apply then 2 coats of EPOFOND AM-9 allowing max.24 hours between coats (mimimum 6-8 hours). Overcoat then with 2 coats of STANDARD PLUS STC White antifouling allowing min.12-24 hours between coats.
Bare Wood bottom: Apply one coat of EVIOX CROMOMINIO largely diluted and allow to dry. Apply 2 coats of SOLVER PRIMER allowing 24 hours between coats. Overcoat then with 2 coats of STANDARD PLUS STC White antifouling allowing min.12-24 hours between coats.
Bare Fibreglass bottom: Degrease with suitable cleaner and rinse with water the surface to be coated. Sand with fine abrasive paper and remove dust. Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND AM-9 or POLIFIBER PRIMER and after 24 hours sand with fine abrasive paper. Apply then 2 coats of STANDARD PLUS STC White antifouling allowing min.12-24 hours between coats.
Alluninium and Light Alloys bottom: Degrease the surface with THINNER 765. Apply 1 coat of EPOFOND AM-9 and let dry for minimum 8 hours but do not exceed 24 hours. Apply 3 coats of SOLVER PRIMER allowing 24 hours between coats. Overcoat then with 2 coats of STANDARD PLUS STC White antifouling allowing 12-24 hours between coats.
Previously Coated Bottom: If the old antifouling is still in good conditions, compatible, and well sticked on the substrate, it is enough to apply 1-2 coats of SOLVER PRIMER followed by 2 coats of STANDARD PLUS STC White antifouling, allowing 12-24 hours between coats.
Recommendations: After the application of the last coat the maximum launching period of the antifouling is 1 month; with top quality copper based antifouling and after agreement with our technical staff, the launching time may extend up to 3 months, providing that the hull is protected from moisture, rain or atmospheric agents with plastic cover or similar material.
Colour: The color of the antifouling paint after immersion in water may result slightly different since small color differences can occur between different production lots: if necessary, mix them before application.
Remarks: The values specified in the present technical data sheet may vary slightly from one batch to another. The antifouling paint must not come in contact with water, chemicals or subjected to mechanical stress before the curing is complete. The wet film thickness refers to the undiluted product. In case of dilution, this value increases. The above information is the result of accurate laboratory tests and practical experience, however, since the product is predominantly used outside the manufacturer's control, we can only guarantee the continuous quality of the product. The above information may be subject to revision by our company. For clarification, updates or further information, it is recommended to contact our company directly. This technical data sheet cancels and replaces any other previously published data sheet.
