Surface Preparation: Surface must always be clean, dry, and properly prepared prior to painting. Failure to do so will lead to eventually blistering and/or peeling. All sanded surfaces must be wiped clean with Dewaxer 973 to remove sanding residue.
General Application: For use on boats below the true waterline. Can be brushed or rolled on fiberglass, wood, aluminum, steel, and previously painted surfaces per application systems below. Apply at least 2 coats for best performance, as the life of the paint is proportional to the number of coats applied. Do not apply this product in a way that will contact adults, children, or pets either directly or through drift.
Spray Drift Management: A variety of factors including weather conditions (e.g. wind direction, wind speed, temperature, relative humidity) and method of application can influence pesticide drift. The applicator must evaluate all factors and make appropriate adjustments when applying this product.
Mixing and Thinning: Shake or mix thoroughly and stir continuously while using. Thin when necessary with Reducer 974.
Theoretical Coverage: Depending on surface conditions, one gallon of bottom paint will usually cover over 400 square feet of the surface when brushed or rolled.
Clean-Up: Use Reducer 974 for cleaning equipment and paintbrushes.
Estimated Dry Times: Bottom paints are designed for overcoating after an overnight dry. Prior to launching, allow a minimum overnight dry. If drying conditions are poor, or if the paint was applied too thickly, longer periods of drying will be required. Fresh coats of paint must be thoroughly dry before overcoating.
Yearly Repainting: Scrub bottom clean at haul-out. Repaint only if the old paint is sound and intact; if not, remove it by sanding or with paint remover. If the old paint is rough, sand it with 100-150 grit sandpaper. Prepare seams, nicks, and chips as below. Spot coat any bare areas with Shelter Island Plus antifouling. Apply 2 full coats of Shelter Island Plus antifoulant.
