Fiberglass Bottomkote ACT

Fiberglass Bottomkote® ACT with Irgarol® uses Ablative Technology providing excellent season-to-season protection. Ablative Technology enables it to erode with use and eliminates the build-up of solid spent coatings and the heavy sanding needed to remove them.

Fiberglass Bottomkote® ACT with Irgarol® contains cuprous oxide and Irgarol®. The Irgarol® works to control weed, slime and algae fouling while the cuprous oxide works to control shell fouling such as barnacles and zebra mussels. This keeps the bottom of your boat cleaner for longer. It provides excellent protection against all forms of marine fouling in waters with moderate to heavy fouling and can be used in fresh, salt and brackish water.

Apply Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601 with a maroon, 3M® Scotch-BriteTM pad and scrub well. Flush with fresh water or wipe off with a clean, wet cloth ensuring that no traces of Fiberglass Surface Prep remain. An alternative method would be to dampen a cheesecloth with Interlux Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Wipe thoroughly to remove all surface contamination and cleaners. Wipe off with a clean, dry rag before liquid dries. To be certain the contamination has been removed, run water over the surface. If the water beads up or separates, repeat one of the above methods. When the water sheets off, all contamination has be removed. Sanding does not remove contamination. After the surface has been properly prepared follow the application system below.
Bare Fiberglass - No Sanding System: Clean surface as above. Apply one thin, continuous coat of Interlux Fiberglass No-Sand Primer with brush or roller (do not spray; do not sand). Follow application guidelines for the primer and apply Fiberglass Bottomkote® ACT with Irgarol®.
Bare Fiberglass -Sanding System: Clean the surface following the preparation procedure above. Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper and remove sanding residue with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Repair defects with Watertite, then sand and wipe clean. Apply Fiberglass Bottomkote® ACT with Irgarol®.
BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) sandpaper and remove sanding residue with Special Thinner 216. Repair defects with Watertite, then sand and wipe clean. Apply first coat reduced 10% with Special Thinner 216 or Brush-Ease 433. Fill seams, if necessary, with Seam Compound Brown 30. Apply 2 further coats of Fiberglass Bottomkote® ACT with Irgarol®.
PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES:
In Good Condition: Wet sand surface with 80 grade (grit) paper to a clean firmly attached surface. Clean with Special Thinner 216.
In Poor Condition: Use Interstrip to remove all traces of antifouling. Sand and wipe clean with Fibreglass Solvent Wash 202 for fiberglass and wood substrates. For steel, sandblast or grind to bright metal finish.
