BEFORE YOU START: SURFACE PREPARATION
Remove anodes or protect them by applying masking tape. It is vital that the surfaces to be coated are absolutely clean and free of grease. To achieve this it is recommended that 3M Clean & Strip purple disc (part no.05816) is used to initially clean the components to be coated.Once this has been done, 80 grit wet paper should be used with warm water mixed with AquaMarine Prep, to further clean these parts. Finally, wipe down the components with clean wipe rags soaked in acetone. Repeat until no further contamination appears on the rags. ATTENTION:From this point on, gloves must be worn at all times when handling the prepared surfaces to ensure that no contamination occurs from natural oils produced by our skin.
Please refer to all MSDS and Data Sheets before application of AquaMarine PROP.
Protective clothing should be worn in accordance with the COSHH/MSDS sheets.
Ensure that AquaMarine Prop Primer is mixed thoroughly and that all solids are removed from the bottom of the tin and are in suspension.
Mix the primer & activator at a ratio 1:1 using syringes. As a guide, a 20 inch three blade propeller will use approx. 100ml mixed total volume.
Apply one thin coat of AquaMarine Prop Primer to the surface to be protected using a paint brush.
• It is important to only apply one coat and under no circumstances apply any additional coats of AquaMarine Prop Primer.
As soon as the primer is touch dry the AquaMarine Prop Finish coat can be applied.
Preferably bring AquaMarine Prop Finish to 5-20o C for ease of application. If the product is too cold it will be very viscous to work with.
Material is supplied ready to use.
Using smooth even strokes apply the coating using a paint brush to the prepared areas.
Do not apply too much coating as it may run. At 75 microns it will form a good even cover.
The AquaMarine Prop Finish coat will ‘cure’ between 4 to 6 hours. Wait for 36 hours before vessel is returned to water.
