Awlgrip AwlStar Bottom Paint

Awgrip Awlstar Gold Label is an ablative or self polishing antifouling paint idea for use in waters with serious fouling conditions or where extended dry docking intervals occur. Self polishing surface continuously exposes fresh antifouling protection at a controlled rate as the boat moves through the water, reducing hull drag and increasing speed.

Awlstar's unique cleaning mechanism prevents permanent attachment of slime and other types of fouling organisms, eiminating the need to dive and scrub. Gold Label provides excellent static fouling protection. Tin-free. Extended shelf-life. For use below the waterline on fiberglass, steel, or wood hulls.

Application Conventional or airless spray, brush, or roller. Pressure feed equipment required for spray application.

Surface Preparation New applications: Prime with Hull-Gard epoxy primer D6070/43707. Apply first coat of Awlstar Gold Label according to recommended recoat times. Renewing AwlStar: Power wash as soon as boat is out of the water, allow to dry. Sanding is not normally required but a thorough 80 grit sanding is advised under any of the following conditions: When surface cleanliness is questionable, sailboats which were recently burnished, fast boats which have ablated to a very smooth surface, or the surface was not power washed immediately after hauling.

Mixing and Reduction Check for settling, then mix until a consistent homogenous blend is achieved. Power mixers of shakers are preferred. If not available, thorough hand mixing is acceptable. Reduction is not usually recommended. However, if needed for conventional air atomized spray equipment or brush/roller application, 10% or 12 oz per gallon with T0101 is a recommended max reduction.

Application Instructions Awlstar can be applied by airless spray, brush, rollers, or air atomized spray. Apply heavy coats of 9 mils WFT per coat yielding 4 mils DFT per coat.

For maximum antifouling performance and protection, apply a min 3 coats. Optimum performance is achieved with a dry film thickness of 12 mils. One gallon is required for each 65 sq ft of below the waterline hull area to achieve 12 mils DFT. To provide a built-in indicator of when it is time to renew, apply the first coat in a different color. When you can see the first coat showing through, it is time to renew. Extra protection and more uniform wear properties result when 1 or 2 extra coats of Awlstar Gold Label Anti Fouling paint are applied to high wear areas.

Warning Do not use Awlstar Gold Label on aluminum. Do not apply to surfaces warmer than 105 F or colder than 45 F, and do not attempt to cure at temperatures below 45 F.
