Baltoplate® combines the fouling resistance of an antifouling finish with the smoothness and lubricity of a superior racing bottom finish in one coating. It dries to a dull red-brown finish and turns to a gray metallic finish after sanding and burnishing. It's main qualities are:
  • Medium strength antifouling paint
  • Can be used in fresh, salt and brackish waters
  • For use on fiberglass, wood and primed underwater metals (except aluminum)


Part No.

Preparation BARE FIBERGLASS: Begin by scrubbing well using soap and water and a stiff brush. Rinse with fresh water and allow to dry. Degrease by wiping with a rag soaked in Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.
BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Clean with Special Thinner 216. Apply 1st coat thinned 10% with Viny-Lux® Solvent 355.
BARE METAL: Sandblast and apply 4-5 coats of Interprotect® 2000E/2001E. If blasting is not possible (or if more than 2 hours has passed since blasting) sand or grind with coarse emery cloth and apply Viny-Lux® Primewash 353/354 prior to Interprotect 2000E/2001E or Interprotect 3000/3001.
EPOXY COATED WOOD: Prime with Interprotect 2000E/2001E.
PREVIOUSLY ANTIFOULED SURFACE: Remove, unless it is vinyl based. Scrape and sand old vinyl coatings which are not adhering, clean and dry surface. Remove antifouling paint in poor condition with Interstrip Semi-Paste 299E.

Method Apply a minimum of 3 coats of Baltoplate.

Hints Thinner Viny-Lux® Solvent 355
Cleaner Bare Fiberglass - Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Bare Wood - Special Thinner 216. Bare Metal - Viny-Lux® Primewash
Conventional Spray Pressure Pot: Pressure: 3.44-4.47 bar/50-65 psi (gun pressure); 10-15 psi (pot pressure). Tip Size: 1.8-2.2 mm/70-85 thou. Spraying of antifouling paints is prohibited in Canada.
Other BURNISHING: After the final coat of Baltoplate has cured, wet sand with 400 grade (grit) paper, removing any imperfections in the coat. Burnish with fine bronze wool until a shiny, super smooth finish is obtained.

Some Important Points Product temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F and maximum 29°C/85°F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F and maximum 29°C/85°F.

Compatibility/Substrates Apply to clean, dry, properly prepared surfaces only. Do not apply Baltoplate in thin coats as this will lead to a rougher surface and additional sanding. It may also lead to premature fouling. Do not apply Baltoplate over non-vinyl antifouling paints. Do not apply Baltoplate over aluminum.
