Interlux Interprotect Epoxy Barrier Coat Kit - Gray
Interprotect 2000E is a unique two part epoxy coating, developed to protect new and used fiberglass hulls from water absorption. Microplates create an overlapping barrier to help stop water migration through the coating. Interprotect is the product of choice for repairing gelcoat that has already been damaged by osmotic blistering.
Interprotect can be used above and below the waterline as a universal primer for all surfaces. Due to its anti-corrosive properties it is also ideal for use on metal.
- For prevention and repair of gelcoat blistering
- Excellent for use on underwater metals, hulls and keels
- Easy to apply-dries quickly-no sanding
- Use as part of a no sand system
- Excellent anti-corrosive protection above & below the waterline
- Finish: Matte
- Number of Coats: 1-5
- Mix Ratio: 3:1 by volume
- Application Methods: Airless spray, brush, spray, roller
Interlux Reducing Solvent - Spray: Thinner for spray application & clean-up

BARE FIBERGLASS OR EPOXY: Remove all surface contamination using Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601, flush with fresh water. Allow to dry. Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.
BARE WOOD: Sand with 80-180 grade (grit) paper. Remove oil from oily woods (eg teak), using Special Thinner 216 or 2316N. Change rags frequently.
STEEL HULLS: Degrease by wiping with a rag soaked in Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Gritblast to near white metal surface. A surface profile of 2-3 mils (50-75 microns) is recommended. If gritblasting is not possible, grind the metal suface with 2436 grit abrasive discs to a uniform, clean, bright metal surface 2-3 mils (50-75 microns) anchor pattern. Remove sanding residue and immediately apply Interprotect 2000E.
ALUMINUM: Degrease by wiping with a rag soaked in Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. For the Advanced Performance System grit blast or grind surface, using aluminium compatible materials, to completely remove any aluminium oxide present on the surface. A surface profile of 3-4 mils (75-100 microns) is recommended. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Apply the first coat of Interprotect 2000E as soon as possible after the surface preparation. If gritblasting is not possible, grind the metal surface with 24-36 grit abrasive discs to a uniform, clean, bright metal surface 3-4mils (75100-microns) anchor pattern. Remove sanding residue and immediately apply Interprotect 2000E.
APPLICATION INFORMATION: If filling is required, use appropriate filler after the first coat of Interprotect 2000E has been applied. Before painting, remove any dust with a dust wipe. Only 1 coat is required when used as a tie coat over Interprime 450 VOC. Stir or shake individual components thoroughly. Add curing agent to the base at 1 part curing agent to 3 parts base (by volume). Stir and leave for 20 minutes to allow the bubbles to disperse. Airless Spray Pressure: 165 bar/2400 psi. Tip Size: 1880-2680, 0.44-0.53mm/17-21 thou. Conventional Spray Pressure Pot: Pressure: 3.44-4.47 bar/50-65 psi (gun pressure); 10-15 psi (pot pressure). Tip Size: 1.5-1.8 mm/60-70 thou. Siphon Cup: Pressure: 3.44-4.47 bar/50-65 psi - gun pressure. Tip Size: 1.8-2.2 mm/70-85 thou. Pressure: <2 bar (Pot)/3-4 bar (Atomising). Thin using 10-15% 2316N or YTA910. Use a natural bristle brush. Use a 3/8" nap solvent resistant roller. r To figure out how much paint is necessary, calculate as follows: Wetted Surface Area (WSA) = LOA x Beam x 0.85, then divide the WSA by 60 when brushing/rollering or 45 when spraying to determine the number of gallons necessary to reach 10 mils. Do not use below 5°C/41°F. Do not apply over conventional (one-pack) coatings. Do not apply when there is a chance of condensation forming on the surface. Ambient temperature should be minimum 5°C/41°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Product temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 5° C/41°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Apply to clean, dry, properly prepared surfaces only. Do not apply over one part paints. When applying vinyl antifoulings such as VC Offshore and Baltoplate® to Interprotect, apply an extra coat and allow epoxy to cure overnight then sand with 80 grade (grit) paper to avoid wrinkling. When overcoating with VC 17m or VC 17m Extra allow Interprotect 2000E to dry for 24 - 36 hours, then sand with 180-220 grit sand paper.

It was my first time using this product for barrier coating the bottom of my boat. It was very straightforward to use and dried promptly in the 75 degree temps. With a roller I used just under 1 gallon for a 31ft boat. The timing was just about right for 2 people to do one coat on each side before it became unworkable. Use a roller specifically recommended by Interlux (call them) because the Redtree3/8 nap roller with phenolic core we got with the paint, left lint all over the finish, despite its claimed suitability for epoxy paints.
