APPLICATION AND USE
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.
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 Thinners #3.
Airless Spray (Professional only): Pressure: 176210 bar/25003050 psi. Tip size: 517 to 521.
Ventilation and Humidity Control: Ensure adequate ventilation during use.
Other: Antifoulings should only be wet sanded. Never dry sand or burnoff old antifoulings. True colour will develop after immersion.
Some Important Points
To prevent premature failure, ensure correct amount of paint is applied using the coverage as a guide. Ambient 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 Boatguard 100 for your specific requirements.
Suitable for use on GRP, wood, steel/iron and lead. Not suitable for use over Aluminium/Alloy substrates or zinc sprayed surfaces.
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 Boatguard 100 over your existing coating scheme.
Number of Coats
Apply 2 coats of 50 microns dry for 24 months (Total DFT of 100 microns)
Apply 1 coat of 100 microns dry for 12 months (Total DFT of 100 microns)
In all schemes, apply an extra stripe coat in areas of high wear such as chines, rudders, sterngear and any leading edges.
(Theoretical) – 10m²/L per coat
(Practical) – 9m²/L per coat
By Spray (Professional only):
