VC-17M Extra Antifouling Bottom Paint

VC-17M Extra Antifouling Bottom Paint is available in the Original formulation and in a new version containing Biolux. VC®17m Extra with Biolux® is a thin film antifouling paint for racing sailboats and powerboats that is formulated with Fluoro microadditive to reduce friction and drag. When applied the VC®17m Extra will immediately give a hard, super smooth, racing finish that would normally take days of tiresome sanding. VC®17m Extra incorporates the Biolux® technology along with the metallic copper to achieve complete protection in freshwater or low fouling saltwater. VC®17m Extra is great for use on inflatables.

PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: x Surface must be clean and dry prior to application of VC 17m Extra with Biolux. Sand areas that are loose or flaking with 320 grade (grit) paper. Clean with Special Thinner 216. With conventional antifouling paint Removal is best but if this is not possible, start sanding with 80 grade (grit) paper and progressively sand with finer grades until the final sanding with 320 grade (grit). Remove sanding residue.

BARE FIBERGLASS: Begin by scrubbing well using soap and water and a stiff brush. Rinse with fresh water. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Sand with 320 grade (grit) paper. Wipe clean.

BARE WOOD: Wipe clean. Sand surface, wipe clean. Apply 3-4 coats of VC Tar2

STEEL HULLS: (Keels & Hulls) Blast to near white metal surface (Sa 2½). Apply 3-4 coats of VC Tar2.

APPLICATION INFORMATION: Apply 2-3 coats on the area to be coated per season. Do not sand between coats of VC 17m Extra with Biolux. y Electric Airless Spray: Pressure: Full. Tip Size: 1.5-1.8 mm/60-70 thou. If spraying in hot, dry conditions or outside with wind, you can add VC 17m Thinner to VC 17m Extra with Biolux to slow down the dry time during application. Add up to 15% by volume. Spraying too far from the hull will cause dry spraying which will result in poor adhesion and negatively affect the antifouling performance of the product. Do not brush apply. Use a short nap roller. Add V172 up to 15% should VC 17m Extra with Biolux be drying too quickly for application. Put just enough paint to fill the roller in the roller tray and put the lid back on the can. r Surfaces previously painted with VC 17m Extra with Biolux do not need to be sanded. Performance of the paint relies directly on the care taken in surface preparation, the application technique, and the number of coats applied. VC 17m Extra with Biolux is a copper color at application. It is important for performance to ensure that uniform film is achieved and the recommended number of coats are applied. It takes several weeks of immersion to develop final color. It may not change color above the true waterline. Product temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F and maximum 32°C/90°F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 7°C/45°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 7°C/45°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Apply to clean, dry, properly prepared surfaces only. Bare surfaces must be sanded. Do not apply VC 17m Extra with Biolux over graphite antifoulings. Do not apply over soft antifouling paints. Do not apply VC 17m Extra with Biolux over aluminum.
