New! T- Coat
T- Coat is a two-component epoxy based hull protection paint. The paint creates a hard, shiny and slippery surface that is very easy to keep clean, making it difficult for fouling to adhere. T- Coat contains no chemical fouling protection and is very well suited as a base for mechanical cleaning options such as hull washing and exfoliating sponges. At the same time, the paint gives a dense protection against moisture intrusion of the hull. These properties are all in the one paint. T- Coat is a completely new and environmentally friendly way to treat your hull.
750 ml = up to about 6 m2
GRP/plastic, steel, aluminum. Existing antifouling and one-component paints must be removed completely. Roughen the surface (grain 80-120) and wash thoroughly before application. T- Coat can be painted onto existing epoxy base in good condition, after rough sanding (grain 80-120). To achieve an extra smooth “racing surface”, T- Coat can be wet sanded into the desired final finish. For best adhesion and seal on a sandblasted, rough porous surface and untreated iron, one thinned layer of Lefant Epoxy Primer is recommended (20-30%), before application of T- Coat.
Surface temperature during application (Important):
Minimum + 7°C, at higher temperatures the product becomes more fluid, and more viscous at lower temperatures. To improve conditions for application at lower temperatures, a fan for example can be placed near the surface you wish to treat, and the paint can be placed in a warm water bath.
Number of coats:
2-3 (about 100my/layer)
Recommended protective equipment:
Gloves, protective mask, coveralls.
