PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: Can be applied directly over two-part catalyzed coatings, that are in good condition, by cleaning with Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601. Sand with 220 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue with Brushing Reducer 2333N, Special Thinner 2316N, or YTA920. Abrade with 120-220 grade (grit) paper.
BARE FIBERGLASS: Clean with Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601. Flush with fresh water. To determine if surface is clean, run fresh water over the surface - if the water beads up or separates it is an indication of contamination on the surface. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Repair any defects with Interfill 830/833 Fairing Compound or Watertite, then sand with 120-220 grade (grit) paper and remove residue. Apply 1 coat of Interprotect 2000E (as required). Follow with 2 coats of Interprime 880 or Epoxy Primekote 404. Abrade with 120-220 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue with 2316N or 2333N.
CLEAR EPOXY: Clean with Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601. Flush with fresh water. Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Repair any defects with Interfill 830/833 Fairing Compound or Watertite, then sand with 120-220 grade (grit) paper and remove residue. Follow with 2 coats of Interprime 880 or Epoxy Primekote 404. Sand with 220-320 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue.
BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue by wiping with Special Thinner 216, 2316N or 2333N. Apply 1-2 coats of Interprotect 2000E followed by 2 coats of Interprime 880 Finish Primer or Epoxy Primekote 404. Alternatively, apply 2 coats of Epoxy Primekote Y404 (thinning the first coat 25% with 2333N or 2316N).
BARE METAL: Sandblast or grind the surface of the metal to Sa 2½ / SSPC-SP5-85 - near white metal surface. Remove sanding residue. Immediately apply Viny-Lux Primewash 353/354 thinned 25% with Viny-Lux Solvent 355 followed by 1 coat of Interprotect 2000E. Alternatively, apply 1 coat only of Interprotect 2000E only (thinned). Fill and fair with Interfill 830/833. Seal with 1-2 coats of Interprotect 2000E. Follow the overcoating times on the relevant primer datasheet. Apply 1-2 coats of Interprime 880 or Epoxy Primekote 404.
DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT ON ALUMINUM HULLS AND OUTDRIVES.
APPLICATION INFORMATION: For the best finish, the first coat should be applied thickly enough for even coverage and flow, but do not attempt to achieve full opacity. Do not apply a dry tack-coat first. Leave first coat until it is "touch dry". Apply a full coat. When this coat is touch dry, apply a further 1 or 2 full coats (depending on colour) to achieve full coverage. If more paint needs to be applied, wait at least another 24 hrs before proceeding, to avoid solvent entrapment. Accelerator may be necessary at temperatures below 30°C/86°F. Consult Accelerator for Two-Part Finishes YQA100 datasheet for recommended addition levels. Mixing Stir contents of each part prior to mixing. Mix the base and curing agents of Perfection * together at the specified mix ratio. Add Curing Agent to the Base, stir and leave for 20 minutes to allow bubbles to disperse. Thinner YTA920, Brushing Reducer 2333N, Thinners Reducing Solvent Spray 2316N. Thinning Mix base and curing agent first and then thin as required. The choice of thinners will depend on the ambient temperature, the spray gun set up, application techniques and paint viscosity. For fuller guidelines on thinning, consult the Professional Application Manual. Cleaner YTA920, Brushing Reducer 2333N, Thinners Reducing Solvent Spray 2316N. Ventilation and Humidity Control Apply in dry well ventilated conditions. Avoid excessively humid conditions, over 80% relative humidity. Conventional Spray Reduce viscosity to 14 seconds through a Zahn #2 cup (25-35% thinning). Suggested set-up: Binks 95: Nozzle 63A or B for pressure pot, needle 663A and air cap 63 PB or PW. Siphon Cup: Nozzle 66, needle 665 and air cap 66SD. DeVilbiss or SATA: Air Pressure 30-40psi (Gti or K3 RP Guns), 40-60psi conventional. Pot Pressure: 7-10 psi Nozzle size 0.8-1.1mm (pressure pot). 1.2-1.4 (gravity or suction feed). Recommended fluid flow 250cc/minute. Interlux recommends high transfer efficiency equipment such as SATA K3 RP gun or DeVilbiss Gti series, for maximum performance and minimum waste. Brush Thin using Brushing Reducer Y2333N (10% by volume). Apply using a natural bristle brush. Roller Thin using Brushing Reducer Y2333N (10% by volume). Apply using a small closed cell foam roller for high gloss topside finishes. Tip off with a clean, natural bristle brush. Other If using as a deck paint, mix in Intergrip non-slip additive. Full hardness is achieved after 7-10 days at 15°C/59°F. If required, a Flattening Agent (YZM914) is available for use with Perfection *. See Flattening Agent datasheet for details. Product temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F and maximum 35°C/95°F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 10° C/50°F and maximum 40°C/104°F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 10°C/50°F and maximum 40°C/104°F. Do not use in high wind. Avoid painting in direct sunlight. Avoid humid conditions. Do not apply over conventional paints or flexible constructions. Do not use unless mixed thoroughly with the curing agent at specified ratio. Not suitable for permanently immersed surfaces. Avoid applying late in the evening as condensation can cause a loss of gloss during overnight cure. Allow to dry in a well ventilated environment. If red Perfection * is to be used then a full coat of glazecoat should be used as a final coat after full opacity has been achieved with the pigmented system to prevent premature loss of gloss or colour change. Spray application - PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY. DO NOT SPRAY without following proper safety procedures for spray application. Go to www.yachtpaint.com for spray information.
Apply only over sanded two pack polyurethane finishes, Interlux Epoxy Primekote 404 or Interprime 880. Ensure all sanding residues are removed before application of the Perfection * finish. Do not use Perfection * on flexible constructions. Will crack on carvel and clinker/lapstrake hulls. Not suitable for permanently immersed surfaces. Perfection * should not be applied over conventional single part enamels since the agressive solvents in Perfection * may cause lifting.
Perfection is Perfect
Posted by Unknown on Mar 3rd 2018
I’ve used Perfection on my cabintop, deck & hard dodger on my 40-year-old sailboat for the 16 years I have owned her. It is a durable & beautiful coating. While requiring careful preparation, mixing & application, the results have always exceeded my expectations. The instructions call for rolling & tipping, but I have found I get better, “like sprayed-on” results by just rolling. It withstands the hardest abuse and harshest chemicals and lasts about six to eight years in the tropics. Once, I had to apply it in high humidity and covered from a rain shower. I expected disaster, especially where rain water ran across the deck before and during application. I added more thinner to dry it quickly and the paint lasted three or four years. It is worth the high price.
Perfection paint tinting
Posted by Ben Anson on Apr 30th 2017
While Interlux recommends not trying to tint perfection, I needed a color they did not offer (light brown for a Boston Whaler interior). I added fiberglass color tint (brown) till I got the color I wanted. I was a bit worried, but the tinted paint did perfect, just as the untinted did on the outside of the boat. Pretty sure they would offer no warranty on modified product, but it did work very well.
Perfection paint; well named
Posted by Ben Anson on Oct 17th 2016
I have used perfection paint on a couple jobs; most recently painting the exterior or my Boston Whaler 15 foot. I scrubbed with scothbrite pad, wiped down with de-waxer & and painted. The paint job came out very good for brushed & I get lots of positive comments. The finish is also very rugged when aged properly, and also was pretty easy to touch-up the one spot I managed to damage.
