Interlux VC Offshore Regatta Baltoplate Racing Finish is an antifouling bottom paint for the serious racer. This gray metallic paint offers good antifouling protection with a racing finish for use in salt water. Baltoplate can be wet sanded and burnished to a gleaming gray metallic finish for ultimate smoothness and lubricity. Use Baltoplate on fiberglass, wood and primed underwater metals (avoid using on aluminum). APPLICATION AND USE


BARE FIBERGLASS: Begin by scrubbing well using soap and water and a stiff brush. Rinse with fresh water and allow to dry. Degrease by wiping with a rag soaked in Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.

BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Clean with Special Thinner 216. Apply 1st coat thinned 10% with Interlux Special Thinner 216.

BARE METAL: Sandblast and apply 4-5 coats of Interprotect 2000E/2001E. If blasting is not possible (or if more than 2 hours has passed since blasting) sand or grind with coarse emery cloth and apply Viny-Lux Primewash 353/354 prior to Interprotect 2000E/2001E or Interprotect 3000/3001.

EPOXY COATED WOOD: Prime with Interprotect 2000E/2001E.

PREVIOUSLY ANTIFOULED SURFACE: Remove, unless it is vinyl based. Scrape and sand old vinyl coatings which are not adhering, clean and dry surface. Remove antifouling paint in poor condition with Interstrip Semi-Paste 299E.

Method Apply a minimum of 3 coats of Baltoplate.
