International Antifouling VC Offshore High Performance 0,75 Lt Blue
VC Offshore EU is an antifouling effective even in complicated fouling conditions, suitable for sailboats and motorboats. Quick drying to form a hard and smooth paint film, easy to clean and sand.
APPLICATION AND USE
Preparation: VC OFFSHORE: Wash thoroughly with freshwater. OTHER ANTIFOULINGS: Check for sound condition. BARE GRP: Use VC General Thinner to clean and fully degrease the surface. Lightly sand with 240 grit paper. Rinse with fresh water and allow to dry. Use VC Tar2 to prime and protect against osmosis. STEEL: Prime with VC Tar2 to prevent corrosion. LEAD: Prime with VC Tar2. WOOD: Prime with Primocon.
Mixing: Stir well before use. Pour the dry ingredients (stored under the plastic cap). Stir or shake thoroughly.
Cleaner: YTA600 VC General Thinner.
Airless Spray Pressure: 176-210 bar. Nozzle diameter: 1880-2180.
Conventional Spray Pressure: 2-3 bar. Nozzle diameter: 1,5-1,8 mm.
Other: For Airmix spray application: Pressure. 2 bar. Nozzle diameter: 20-113.
Some Important Points.
The color will develop after immersion. It is important to use the quantity calculated on the basis of the indications of the spreading rate, and if necessary applying an extra coat. It is also important to apply the correct thickness for the best results. To prevent poor results, ensure the correct amount of paint is applied using the coverage / spreading rate as a guide.
Product temperature should be minimum 5°C/41°F and maximum 35°C/95°F.
The ambient temperature should be minimum 5°C/41°F and maximum 35°C/95°F.
The surface temperature should be minimum 1°C above dew point and maximum 35°C.
