Anti-Fouling Paint, copper oxide-based
Area of use: Allowed for use on the Swedish east coast (from Örskär to Trelleborg). Combats the growth of aquatic organisms on recreational boats and other vessels with a tare weight over 200 kg.
Instructions: Existing paintwork in poor condition, or flaky and uneven, and thick residual layers of old paint must be sanded down before applying the anti-fouling paint. If required, first apply a barrier or adhesive coat using Sealer [[36353| 36-353]]. Existing paintwork in good condition should be lightly sanded before applying the anti-fouling paint. If the type of paint used in the existing paintwork is not known, it must be removed. Alternatively, apply a layer of Sealer [[36353| 36-353]] before applying the anti-fouling paint. Apply two coats to exposed areas of the boat – waterline, rudders, prow, other areas one coat.. For cleaning and when dilution is necessary, use Thinner No. 2, 30-620.
Bare plastic must be primed with anti-pest Epoxy primer 30-623. When painting onto epoxy primer, the surface of the primer should be slightly sticky for best adhesion. Epoxy filler must be used on uneven and damaged areas 30-625.
