High-performance, self-polishing antifouling with effective protection against organisms such as algae. MICRON 350 is a high-performance SPC antifouling (self polishing copolymer), suitable for professional and consumer use on boats in fresh and salt water.
High-performance, self-polishing antifouling with effective protection against organisms such as algae. MICRON 350 is a high-performance SPC antifouling (self polishing copolymer), suitable for professional and consumer use on ships in fresh and salt water.
This product offers up to two years of performance while avoiding the build-up of thick layers. The smooth surface produced ensures reduced friction, while optimal biocide is maintained, even while the vessel is docked for longer periods of time.
Can be applied to most antifoulings when they are in good condition. Do not mix with VC17m or PTFE-containing antifoulings.
- Coverage: 9 m² / l
- Two coats per season necessary
- Suitable for GRP, wood, steel and lead
- Not suitable for use on aluminum or galvanized surfaces
- Uncoated substrates should be primed beforehand. Steel, iron, lead and wood: with Interprotect or Primocon. Blank gel coat: with Primocon or Gelshield 200 as osmosis protection.
APPLICATION AND USE
Preparation PREVIOUSLY ANTIFOULED 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.
STEEL/IRON/LEAD/WOOD: Prime with Interprotect or Primocon.
Hints 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.
Ventilation and Humidity Control: Ensure adequate ventilation during use.
Airless Spray (Professional only): Pressure 176220 bar/25003200 psi. Tip Size: 2180.
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 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 minimum 3°C/37.4°F above dew point and maximum 35°C/95°F.
Compatibility/Substrates For use over suitably primed 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 excpetion of VC17m/PTFE antifoulings. Consult your local International Paint representative for specific overcoating advice if you are unsure about compatibility of Micron 350 over your existing coating scheme.
