Preparation & Application
Existing old self-polishing or ablative antifouling: Remove possible oil and grease etc. with suitable detergent, followed by high pressure fresh water cleaning for a thorough removal of any possible weak structure of leached antifouling. Allow the surface to dry before coating.
Sealer: Whether to use a sealer coat / tiecoat or not depends on the type and condition of the existing antifouling
Previously Coated Surfaces
The surface must be completely clean and dry at the time of application and its temperature must be above the dew point to avoid condensation. The temperature of the paint itself should be above: 15°C/59°F. Do not apply in direct sunlight. In confined spaces provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
Previously Uncoated Surfaces
According to specification. Recommended systems are: Hempel Underwater Primer or Hempel Light Primer.
Colour stability: Final colour develops after 1 week immersion in water. Length of service may have a certain influence on colour. The antifouling may obtain a copper-green tinge
