Pad areas should not be painted immediately prior to launch. Do not use in wet or humid conditions. Should it rain during or immediately after application, the coating must be exposed to dry conditions for at least 24 hours before immersion. In cold conditions, <10°C , 48 hours is recommended.


Compatibility/Substrates Fiberglass Bottomkote Aqua can be applied to most popular antifouling paints as long as the old coating has been aged, is tightly adhered and is in sound condition. Do not apply Fiberglass Bottomkote Aqua over soft or tin-based copolymer antifoulings. Do not use on aluminium.
