APPLICATION AND USE
Preparation PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES:
In Good Condition: Remove all traces of loose paint and contamination by sanding the entire surface with 80 grit wet-or-dry sandpaper; wipe surface clean with Special Thinner 216. Apply at least 2 coats of Bottomkote.
In Poor Condition: Completely remove all old antifouling paint using Interstrip 299E for fiberglass and wood, and by sandblasting to near white metal for steel.
BARE FIBERGLASS: It is very important that bare fiberglass be properly prepared to prevent delamination of the antifouling paint. Remove mold release wax using one of the following Interlux products, Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601 or Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202 following the product label instructions. Fill any surface imperfections with Interlux Watertite following the label instructions. After the surface has been properly cleaned, follow one of the application systems below.
BARE FIBERGLASS - NO SANDING SYSTEM: Clean the surface following the preparation procedure above. Apply one coat of InterProtect 2000E or Fiberglass No-Sand Primer following the label instructions for applying the primer and overcoating with antifouling paint. Apply at least two coats of Bottomkote allowing appropriate drying times.
BARE FIBERGLASS - SANDING SYSTEM: Clean the surface following the preparation procedure above. Sand entire surface well with 80 grade (grit) paper until flat matte finish is obtained. Remove sanding residue and wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Apply at least two coats of Bottomkote allowing appropriate drying times.
Blister Prevention System:: Apply the Interprotect system for the prevention of blisters. Contact the Interlux Technical Service Department at 1-800-468-7589 or visit yachtpaint.com for complete instructions on the application of The InterProtect System.
BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 (grit) grade paper. Wipe with Special Thinner 216. Thin first coat with 10-15% with Brush-Ease 433 or Special Thinner 216. Fill seams, if necessary, with Seam Compound Brown 30 (if necessary). Apply two coats of Bottomkote (unthinned) allowing appropriate drying times.
UNDERWATER METALS: Contact the Interlux Technical Service Department at 1-800-468-7589 for full information on how to properly prime underwater metals. Do not use on aluminum.


Method For use on fiberglass, wood or properly primed steel and lead. It is very important that bare fiberglass be properly primed to prevent delamination of the antifouling paint. At least 2 coats should be applied.
