Micron 66 Application & Use Instructions
PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES:
In Good Condition:
TBT Copolymers: Wet sand surface with 80 grade (grit) paper to a clean firmly attached surface. Clean with Special Thinner 216. Prime with Primocon.
Non-TBT Copolymers & Hard Antifoulings: Wet sand surface with 80 grade (grit) paper to a clean firmly attached surface. Clean with Special Thinner 216.
In Poor Condition: Use Interstrip to remove all traces of antifouling. Sand and wipe clean with Fibreglass Solvent Wash 202.
BARE FIBERGLASS - (POLYESTER OR VINYLESTER): Clean and degrease with Fibreglass Solvent Wash 202 or use Fibreglass Surface Prep YMA601.
Sanding System -: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Repair defects with Watertite, then sand and wipe clean.
BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Clean with Special Thinner 216. Apply first coat reduced 10% with Special Thinner 216 or Brush-Ease 433. Fill seams, if necessary, with Seam Compound Brown 30. Repair defects with Watertite, then sand and wipe clean. Apply 2 additional coats.

Some Important Points Product temperature should be minimum 5 deg C/40 deg F and maximum 35 deg C/95 deg F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 5 deg C/40 deg F and maximum 35 deg C/95 deg F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 5 deg C/40 deg F and maximum 35 deg C/95 deg F.
Compatibility/Substrates Surface must be dry and clean, and free from grease, detaching paint etc. Micron 66 can be applied to most popular antifouling paints as long as the old coating has been aged, is tightly adhered and is in sound condition. Do not apply Micron 66 over aluminum. Use Primocon primer as a conversion coat prior to application over tin-based copolymer antifouling paints.

Coverage (Theoretical) - 320 (sq ft/Gal) by brush/roller
Recommended DFT 2.0 mils dry
Recommended WFT 5.1 mils wet
Application Methods Brush, Roller
TRANSPORTATION,STORAGE AND SAFETY INFORMATION
TRANSPORTATION: Micron 66 should be kept in securely closed containers during transport and storage.
STORAGE: Exposure to air and extremes of temperature should be avoided. For the full shelf life of Micron 66 to be realised ensure that between use the container is firmly closed and the temperature is between 5 deg C/40 deg F and 35 deg C/95 deg F. Keep out of direct sunlight.
DISPOSAL: Container Disposal: Triple Rinse (or equivalent). Then offer for recycling or reconditioning, or puncture and dispose of in a sanitary landfill or by other procedures approved by state or local authorities. Pesticide Disposal: Open dumping is prohibited. Pesticide, spray mixture or rinsate that cannot be used or chemically reprocessed should be disposed of according to procedures approved by Federal, state, or local disposal authorities.
Antifoulings should only be wet sanded. Never dry sand or burn-off old antifoulings. Spraying of antifouling paints is prohibited in Canada.
