SURFACE PREPARATION
The first step in the painting cycle of wooden boats is the priming of the wood with our epoxy protective coating BARRIER, which features great adhesion on wood and an excellent protective power. Sand the dry wooden surface with coarse sand paper (n.80-100), and apply 2-3 coats of BARRIER TRASPARENTE diluted with 50% of our thinner DILUENTE N.5, until the wood does not absorb any more product and BARRIER appears on the surface. The coats must be applied wet on wet to allow an impregnation in depth. If we let  the first coat dry, this would prevent the absorption of the following coats, rendering the treatment less effective.

The painting cycle continues as follows:

HULL
– Sand with medium-coarse sandpaper (n.120-140)
– Where necessary apply one or more coats of our EPOXY FILLER, without sanding between the coats if they are applied within 16 hours from each other (at 20° C).
– Sand with medium-coarse sandpaper (n.120-140)
– Apply one coat of EPOPLASTIC and wait at least 12 hours- Sand the surface with medium sandpaper (n.120-140)
– Apply a second coat of EPOPLASTIC nd wait at least 12 hours
– Sand the surface with medium-fine sandpaper (n.120-140)
– Apply one coat of FIBERGLASS PRIMER
– Apply two coats of our antifouling  waiting 6 hours between coats and 24 hours before launching.
It is advisable to apply a third coat of antifouling on the water-line.

TOPSIDE
– Sand with medium-coarse sandpaper (n.120-140)
– Where necessary apply one or more coats of our EPOXY FILLER
– Sand the surface with medium sandpaper (n.120-150)
– Apply one coat of EPOPLASTIC and wait at least 12 hours
– Sand the surface with medium sandpaper (n.150-180)
– Apply a second coat of EPOPLASTIC nd wait at least 12 hours
– Sand the surface with medium-fine sandpaper (n.180-220)
