International Self-polishing Antifouling Micron 350 0.75Lt Red YBB629
Premium Self Polishing Copolymer (SPC) Antifouling.
Micron 350 is an antifouling product effective against fouling organisms; slime, aquatic plants and animals. A Premium Self Polishing Copolymer (SPC) antifouling suitable for professional and consumer application onto vessels in fresh and salt water.
The continuously polishing system provides up to 2 years performance, avoiding paint build up. The eversmoothing surface ensures that drag is always minimised whilst maintaining optimum biocide release including in stationary periods. Can be applied up to 12 months before launch.

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 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 Thinner #3.
Ventilation and Humidity Control: Ensure adequate ventilation during use.
Airless Spray (Professional only): Pressure: 176220 bar/45005500 psi. Tip size: 517 to 521.
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 poor results, 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 7°C/45°F 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 Micron 350 for your specific requirements.
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 exception 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.
