New GRP hulls should be de-waxed with solvent and sanded until the surface has been completely abraded to a matt appearance.
Steel and non ferrous metal hulls should be suitably primed and given adequate protection against corrosion.
If protection from osmosis is desired, two to four coats of SAFEGUARD EA or TSF epoxy moisture barrier coatings can be applied before application of SYNERGY.
MIXING Pour the hardener into the tub of resin wand stir thoroughly for several minutes before adding the copper powder. Slowly pour in the copper powder while continuing to stir the product. Continue stirring until a smooth, even consistency is achieved.
POT LIFE The pot life of SYNERGY depends on the temperature as shown in this table. The product will gradually thicken when the pot life has expired. If this occurs the product should be discarded.
APPLICATION Apply SYNERGY with a short pile roller in 4 or 5 thin coats. SYNERGY is much quicker and easier to apply than epoxy based products and although more coats are required application will not require more time or effort. The first coat will look thin and uneven, this is normal. Each successive coat will build thickness and improve appearance. Do not go back over a coat to ‘touch it up’.
Apply Synergy in thin coats to achieve the best finish. To obtain the correct coating thickness apply as many coats of Synergy as are required to use the calculated quantity of material. The copper powder in Synergy should not settle but it is advisable to stir the product occasionally to ensure an even distribution.
Apply successive coats when all of the water in the first coat has evaporated. As a general rule overcoat after twice the time has elapsed that it took for the previous coat to become touch dry. e.g. If the first coat of SYNERGY is touch dry in 1 hour overcoat after a further hour.
EQUIPMENT Wash equipment in water but do not allow copper to enter drains or the environment.
LIFTING AND COATING OF PAD AREAS In most conditions Synergy will be sufficiently hard to be lifted in slings within 24 hours and launched after 48 hours.
ABRADING SYNERGY has been developed to leach the optimum amount of copper to its surface to keep it free of fouling. We do not recommend abrading because it scores the surface of the coating with minute scratches that promote the attachment of fouling. Abrading also reduces coating thickness and causes pollution. A cleaner that will remove surface contamination before re-launching will be available soon.
HEALTH & SAFETY Always wear rubber gloves when using SYNERGY as it will adhere tenaciously to bare skin. Avoid inhalation of copper dust when mixing. If applying SYNERGY with spray equipment an air fed mask should be used. Do not allow SYNERGY to contaminate the environment.
HOW MUCH WILL YOU NEED? 1 LITRE of SYNERGY will cover approximately 3.4 square metres or 36 square feet with four coats.
Synergy is available in pack sizes of 0.5, 1, 2.5 and 5 litres.
