New! Tiger Coat
Tiger 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. Tiger 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. Tiger Coat is a completely new and environmentally friendly way to treat your hull.
Brush, alternatively rollers – even out surface afterwards with brush or painting pad.
750 ml = up to about 6 sq.m.
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. Tiger Coat can be painted onto existing epoxy base in good condition, after rough sanding (grain 80-120). To achieve an extra smooth “racing surface”, Tiger 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 Tiger 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 masks, coveralls.
