Product description

A high solids low friction self-polishing antifouling, based on silyl acrylate binder technology. This binder hydrolyses in seawater to ensure linear polishing rate and result in the continuous exposure of fresh antifouling. IMO Anti-fouling System Convention compliant (AFS/CONF/26).

Recommended use

As an antifouling for newbuildings and major refurbishment, for side and flat bottom areas for vessels with drydocking intervals up to 90 months.

Surface preparation

Coated surfaces

Prior to paint application, all surfaces should be clean, dry and free from contamination. Remove surface contamination by high pressure fresh water cleaning. To be applied on a clean, dry approved primer/undercoat or intact self-polishing antifouling.

Other surfaces

The coating may be used on other substrates. Please contact your local Jotun office for more information.

Condition during application

The coating could be applied down to -15°C surface temperature. Temperature of the substrate should be minimum 3°C above the dew point of the air, temperature and relative humidity measured in the vicinity of the substrate. Good ventilation is required in confined areas to ensure proper drying and curing. The coating should not be exposed to oil, chemicals or mechanical stress until it is thoroughly dried. During application and the initial drying of the coating, the coating should not be exposed to high humidity as this can result in loss of gloss and discolouration.

Application methods

Spray Use airless spray

Brush May be used but care must be taken to achieve the specified dry film thickness.

Roller May be used. However when using roller application care must be taken to apply sufficient material in order to achieve the specified dry film thickness.

Drying time

Drying times are generally related to air circulation, temperature, film thickness and number of coats, and will be affected correspondingly. The figures given in the table are typical with:

  • Good ventilation (Outdoor exposure or free circulation of air)

  • Typical film thickness

  • One coat on top of inert substrate

  1. Indicates the time which normally occurs in a drydocking situation where the drying time depends on the total film thickness of primer/antifouling applied. The drying time will increase with increasing film thickness. When three or more antifouling coats are applied in a rapid succession it is recommend to double the launch time. When applying at low temperatures (below 10°C), high humidity and low ventilation will increase the drying time. As antifoulings are physically drying paints, good ventilation is required especially on the flat bottom and in sea chests. If thinning is required at these lower temperatures, special attention should then be given to the application to reduce the risk of sagging.

  2. The substrate should be dry and free from any contamination prior to application of the subsequent coat.

The given data must be considered as guidelines only. The actual drying time/times before recoating may be shorter or longer, depending on film thickness, ventilation, humidity, underlying paint system, requirement for early handling and mechanical strength etc. A complete system can be described on a system sheet, where all parameters and special conditions could be included.

Recommended type of primer:

Anticorrosive primer system suitable for purpose with

Safeguard Universal ES, Safeguard Plus or Vinyguard SG 88 as a sealer coat/tie-coat.

Other systems may be specified, depending on area of use


The product must be stored in accordance with national regulations. Storage conditions are to keep the containers in a dry, cool, well ventilated space and away from source of heat and ignition. Containers must be kept tightly closed. Shelf life at 23°C: 12 months for standard colour(s) and 6 months for other colour(s), if available. Thereafter the paint quality is subject to re-inspection.


Handle with care. Stir well before use.
