This antifouling bottom paint is suited for use on all boats, including fiberglass, aluminum, wood, and steel, and is approved for use in all waters. Since the performance of the product is directly related to the amount of paint applied (thin film thickness could lead to premature fouling), Interlux recommends applying a 2 coat minimum for best results. Pacifica Plus can be applied using either a brush or roller.

Bare fiberglass (polyester or vinylester)
Bare fiberglass must be properly prepared to prevent delamination of the antifouling paint. Start by scrubbing the surface thouroughly with soap and water using a stiff brush, then rinse with water. Wipe a small area witha clean rag that has been wetted with Firberglass Solvent Wash 202. While the surface is still wet, wipe with a clean, dry rag. Continue until the entire surface has been cleaned.
- With the No Sand System, apply one thin, continuous coat of Interlux Fiberglass No-Sand Primer.
- With the Sanding System, sand with 80 grade paper, remove sanding residue and then wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.
Sand with 80 grade paper. Clean with Special Thinner 216. Apply first coat reduced 10% with Special Thinner 216. If necessary, fill seams with Seam Compound Brown 30.
- If the wood was previously painted and still in good condition, rinse with fresh water and allow surface to dry. Abrade with 80-grit sandpaper and remove the residue by wiping clean with Special Thinner 216.
- If the wood was previously painted and is in poor condition, remove all old antifouling paint using Interstrip 299E, followed by sanding and wiping clean with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.
