VC Offshore

VC Offshore combines superior antifouling performance with a super smooth low friction surface for the performance conscious boater. VC Offshore is further enhanced by the addition of Teflon®.

Teflon® not only helps reduce drag but also makes it easier to wet sand and burnish to make it even smoother. For use on fiberglass, wood and primed underwater metals (except aluminum). Can be used in fresh, salt and brackish waters.

APPLICATION AND USE
Preparation BARE FIBERGLASS: Begin by scrubbing well using soap and water and a stiff brush. Rinse with fresh water. 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 PAINTED SURFACES: 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 3 coats of VC Offshore. BURNISHING: After the final coat of VC Offshore 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. Apply an extra coat if wet sanding or burnishing.


Hints Thinner Viny-Lux® Solvent 355
Cleaner Bare Fiberglass - Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Bare Wood - Special Thinner 216.
Conventional Spray Pressure Pot: Pressure: 3.44-4.08 bar/50-60 psi (gun pressure), pot pressure 10-15 psi. Tip Size: 1.8-2.2 mm/70-85 thou. Spraying of antifouling paints is prohibited in Canada.
Other Do not apply thin coats.


Some Important Points Do not apply VC Offshore in thin coats as this will lead to a rougher surface and additional sanding. It may also lead to premature fouling. 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 29°C/85°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. Bare surfaces must be sanded. Do not apply VC Offshore over non-vinyl antifouling paints. Do not apply VC Offshore over aluminum. Do not use on aluminum boats, outdrives or outboards without proper barrier coats.
