Regulatory Data: • VOC 372 grams /liter or 183 grams / kg • EPA 74681-2 Product does NOT contain TBT.
Systems and Compatibility: Application of MARINE AF 50 over self polishing copolymers is not recommended.
Surface Preparation: Surface must be clean, dry and free of all contamination. High pressure fresh water wash to remove all soluble contaminants and foreign matter. Clean any oil or grease in accordance with SSPC-SP1 Solvent Cleaning.
Newbuilding: Prepare surface and apply recommended primer. Apply two or three coats of MARINE AF 50 depending on drydock interval required. Drydocking: Insure coating is intact. Pressure wash the entire bottom with 3000 psi fresh water wash when vessel enters the dock and before the surface dries. Re- move all loosely adhering paint and fouling. Damaged areas should be prepared to SSPC-SP10 Near White Blast (Sa2.5) and coat with MARINE AC 70, MARINE AC 80, or MARINE AC 1. Comply with overcoating intervals specified by primer data sheet.
