Our best marine bottom paint coating - loaded with 67% copper, ablative with SCX - Slime Control Xtra.
Covers approximately 300 square feet per gallon; 2 coats of the copper bottom paint needed for proper application - 3rd coat recommended on the waterline
To figure out the amount of paint required: Length x Beam x .85 x 2 (2 coats)= Total / 300 feet = Gallons Required
An average boater that goes out on the water for 100 to 500 hours a year will get anti-fouling protection of approximately 2-3 years.
Our 67% copper bottom paint with SCX provides extended antifouling protection against barnacles, algae and hydroids in salt and fresh water on boat bottoms only. SCX - SLIME CONTROL XTRA - acts as a barrier to prevent slime and algae.
Its ablative copolymer base renders a smooth finish with durability and abrasion resistance.
67% Copper Boat/Marine Bottom Paint w/ SCXreleases biocide by the constant exposure of new paint film to the water. 67% Copper Boat/Marine Bottom Paint w/ SCXhas universal application over all types of properly prepared bottom paints (except aluminum). For use on fast fiberglass boats, as well as wood and steel hulls, extended protection is possible, since performance is directly proportional to the amount of paint applied.
Surface PreparationSurface must always be clean, dry and properly prepared prior to painting. Failure to do so will lead to eventually blistering and/or peeling. All sanded surfaces must be wiped clean with a dewaxer to remove sanding residue.
General ApplicationFor use on boats below the true waterline. Can be brushed or rolled on fiberglass, wood, steel and previously painted surfaces per application systems below. Do not use on aluminum. Apply at least 2 coats for best performance, as the life of the paint is proportional to the number of coats applied.
Mixing and ThinningShake or mix thoroughly and stir continuously while using. Thin when necessary with a thinner.
Approximate CoverageDepending on surface conditions, one gallon of bottom paint will usually cover about 300 square feet of surface when brushed or rolled.
Clean UpUse a thinner for cleaning equipment and paint brushes.
Estimated Dry TimesBottom paints are designed for overcoating after an overnight dry. Prior to launching, allow a minimum dry of overnight. If drying conditions are poor, or if paint was applied too thickly, longer periods of drying will be required. Fresh coats of paint must be thoroughly dry before overcoating.
Yearly RepaintingScrub bottom clean at haul-out. Repaint only if old paint is sound and tight; if not, remove it by sanding or with paint remover. If old paint is rough, sand it with 100-150 grit sandpaper. Prepare seams, nicks and chips as below. Spotcoat any scuffs with antifoulant. Apply 2 coats of antifoulant.
On Bare WoodIf seams are not flush, fill them with seam compound. Dry several days until skin forms. Do not sand. Fill nicks with trowel cement, dry hard, sand, apply antifoulant (reduced 10%) then follow with 2 additional unreduced coats of antifoulant.
On Bare FiberglassDewax by washing with a dewaxer, remove dissolved wax at once with clean paper towels or rags; repeat; sand hard to a dull finish with 80-100 grit sandpaper. Fill any chips with trowel cement, dry hard, sand. Apply 5 coats of 8000A/8000B Bottom Protect High Build Epoxy Primer, then apply 2 coats of antifoulant.
On Bare SteelSandblast surface to a near white metal; remove blast residue with a broom and airhose. Wipe off with a dewaxer. Do not sand. Fill in any imperfections with fairing compound. Sand smooth and wipe clean. Apply 5 coats of our Bottom Protect High Build Epoxy Primer, then apply 2 coats of antifoulant.
