Dry To Recoat:
Low temperature and high humidity will adversely affect application, drying and performance of any coating.
Aluminium: Ideally abrade the surface to provide a "key", clean, then immediately coat with Metaclor Primer. When dry apply 2nd coat. If abrasion is not possible, the surface must be degreased and treated with 'T' Wash/Mordant solution (leave to react for 2 hours), follow the instructions on the pack. When this is clean and dry apply the 2 coats of Metaclor Primer, then 2 coats of Antifouling 'A'.
Bare Surfaces: On exposed metal and wood, prime first with at least 2 coats of Teamac Metaclor Underwater Primer (but not more than 3). On GRP lightly abrade exposed surfaces and apply 2 coats of Teamac Metaclor Underwater Primer.
New steel: Abrasive blast clean to Sa2½ and apply TEAMAC METACLOR UNDERWATER PRIMER. If applying onto shop-primed steel ensure that surface is dry and clean, and areas of damaged primer are suitably cleaned prior to the application of the METACLOR.
Maintenance: Remove all loose and damaged existing coating and all marine growth. High pressure wash with fresh water. Areas of breakdown should be blasted or power tool cleaned. Touch up with METACLOR PRIMER to the full existing film thickness. Prior to the application of the full coat ensure that surface is clean and free of all contaminates.
Mix well prior to use.
As dictated by normal good painting practice. Care must be taken during application that the temperature is above the dew point to avoid any contamination.
Always apply at least 2 coats of Teamac Antifouling A Plus
