Wearlon® Super F-6M        - Boat Bottom Paint -

APPLICATION GUIDE AND TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Meets EPA, USDA, And FDA 21 CFR 175.300 Requirements

Properties

Wearlon® Super F-6M is a water based silicone-epoxy coating having unique release properties while adhering to a broad range of substrates including wood, concrete, fiberglass, metals, and most plastics including epoxies, polyurethanes, and alkyds. Wearlon® Super F-6M is the best of all the Wearlon coatings for underwater anti-fouling in salt water marine. Wearlon® Super F-6M is a hydrophobic coating that has a low surface tension when in contact with water. As a bottom coat on boats, improved speed, as well as less fuel consumption are readily noticed. Most sea growth is readily removed mainly by the boat moving through the water.

Mixing Instructions

Wearlon® Super F-6M is a 2 component product, packaged in 1 Gallon and 5 Gallon kit containing the proper ratio of ingredients. The entire contents of each container should be mixed together. For quantities less than the pre-packaged kit, mix as follows: To 11 parts of the A component, mix in 2 parts of the B component. NO INDUCTION PERIOD NECESSARY... Spray immediately.

Thinning and Clean up

In most cases it is not necessary to thin Wearlon® Super F-6M. If you find it necessary to thin Wearlon® Super F-6M you may add up to 5% DRINKING WATER. Clean up by using soap and water while Wearlon® Super F-6M is in an uncured state. For best results clean all equipment as soon as the application is complete. After the material has cured, solvent is needed to clean the Wearlon® Super F-6M

Application and Recoating

Spray Wearlon® Super F-6M to obtain a 3 to 4 mil dry, or 6 to 8 wet coating. Apply over Wearlon® Super F-6M Primer for the best results. If poor wetting occurs while applying Wearlon coatings, then lightly roughen the dry Wearlon surface with 400 grit sandpaper prior to top-coating. Make sure the surface temperature is above 40ÁF and the relative humidity is below 90% before coating. Allow at least 24 hours and ideally one week of curing before putting into service. Do not use harsh chemicals for cleaning Wearlon surfaces, a simple hand wipe or a light scrape is adequate for removing marine growth. If the Wearlon surface has become damaged or has excessive wear, then an occasional touch up may be required. This can be achieved by simply spraying 1 to 3 mils of the Wearlon® Super F-6M over the existing Wearlon surface and allowing it to cure for at least 24 hours prior to putting it back in service.

Caution: Extremely Slippery—care must be followed when transporting or walking on this surface.
