APPLICATION AND USE

Preparation

PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: In Good Condition Remove loose paint by sanding with 80 grade (grit) paper, wipe with Special Thinner 216. In Poor Condition Remove antifouling paint in poor condition with Interstrip Semi-Paste 299E.

BARE FIBERGLASS - (POLYESTER OR VINYLESTER) Begin by scrubbing the surface thoroughly with a stiff brush using Interlux All Purpose Boat Soap and water to remove loose dirt and contamination. Flush with fresh water to remove the soap residue and allow to dry. Remove mold release wax using one of the following methods. The preferred method of cleaning gelcoat is to apply Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601 with a maroon, 3M Scotch-Brite pad and scrub well. Flush with fresh water or wipe off with a clean, wet cloth ensuring that no traces of Fiberglass Surface Prep remain. An alternate method would be to dampen cheesecloth with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Wipe thoroughly to remove all surface contamination and cleaners. Wipe off with a clean, dry rag before liquid dries. Wipe only a few square feet at a time and change rags frequently. To be certain the contamination has been removed, run water over the surface. If the water beads up or separates, repeat one of the above methods. When the water sheets off, all contamination has be removed. Sanding does not remove contamination. After the surface has been properly prepared follow the application system below.

Bare Fiberglass - No Sanding System: After the surface has been prepared as described above - apply one thin continuous coat of Interlux No Sand Primer. Please refer to label directions for application information. Allow appropriate dry time and apply the first coat of ULTRA-KOTE.

Remember to change paper frequently. Remove sanding residue with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Sand and wipe clean. Apply two coats of ULTRA-KOTE allowing appropriate drying times.

BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Clean with Special Thinner 216. Apply first coat reduced 10% with Special Thinner 216. Fill seams, if necessary, with Seam Compound Brown 30.
