TotalBoat Outdrive AF Antifouling Paint

TotalBoat Outdrive AF provides full-season antifouling protection for outdrives, trim tabs, struts, props, shafts, bow thrusters and more. Its high-performance copper-free formula is safe for underwater metals and won't cause galvanic corrosion. This makes it ideal for aluminum.

Use below the waterline on boat hulls and underwater metal parts in fresh, salt and brackish waters. Very easy to apply by brush or roller.

Although Outdrive AF is formulated specifically for use on underwater metals, it also works effectively on wood and fiberglass to repel marine biofouling organisms.

Available in Quarts. Color is Matte Black.

Note: For an easy-to-apply, high-performance, single-season barnacle barrier in spray form, try TotalBoat Outdrive AF Aerosol Spray.

Outdrive AF Paint (Primer: TotalBoat TotalProtect OR TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Etch Wash and TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat)

SURFACE PREPARATION

Underwater Metals: Remove all surface contaminants and wipe surface clean with a lint-free rag dampened with TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep. Sand lightly with 80-grit. Wipe surface clean again with a clean, lint-free rag dampened with TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep. For best adhesion and corrosion resistance on bare aluminum or steel, use TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Etch Wash followed by TotalBoat Aluminum Boat Barrier Coat, as directed. Tape off, and apply a primer, following the manufacturer's directions. Apply TotalBoat Outdrive AF Antifouling Paint.

Fiberglass: Wipe surface with TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep to remove any residue, mask and tape as needed, and immediately apply TotalBoat TotalProtect Epoxy Primer as directed on package. Tape or mask off any necessary areas. Apply TotalBoat Outdrive AF Antifouling Paint.

Wood: Start with a clean, dry surface. Be sure all seams are filled and smooth. Use an appropriate seam compound. Sand the surface with 80-grit and wipe the surface clean with a lint-free rag wetted with TotalBoat Dewaxer & Surface Prep. Tape or mask off any necessary areas. Apply a minimum of 2 coats of TotalBoat Outdrive AF Antifouling Paint.

Previously Painted Surfaces: For surfaces in poor condition, remove previous paints by scraping, sanding, or using a paint stripper. Follow instructions above, based on substrate. Tape or mask off any necessary areas. Apply TotalBoat Outdrive AF Antifouling Paint.

APPLICATION

Do not attempt to spray TotalBoat Outdrive AF Antifouling Paint.

Apply by brush or 3/8" nap, solvent-safe foam roller. Stir or shake thoroughly to ensure all settled solids and pigments are distributed evenly. Apply only when conditions allow for proper surface prep and drying of antifouling paint.

  1. Paint should not require thinner, but if necessary, use TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100.
  2. Fill the paint tray, and roll on using a short nap roller cover (usually 3/8" nap).
  3. Remix paint each time before adding more to the paint tray.
  4. Apply a second coat, if desired, to extend the longevity of the paint.
  5. An additional coat should be applied along the waterline, and on any leading edges or areas of increased water flow.
If paint is applied too thickly, it may require more time to dry before overcoating. Do not attempt to overcoat before previous coat has dried thoroughly. Allow to dry overnight before launching. DO NOT PAINT ANY SACRIFICIAL ANODES OR ZINCS!
